Naughty or Nice

This Thursday, I'm a little of both. Visons of Sugarplums 8 X 11" mixed media

But know I must have been naughty because Cyber Hell is where I've spent the past two weeks thanks to the evil virus that is eating my computer! Every time I try to scan and save any art, my computer goes nuts, strange websites appear, bogus anti-virus ads pop up, Flickr freezes, and everything comes to a shuddering halt. Ava has taken my modem to the computer technicians at her school, but the anti-virus scan they ran seemed to make things even worse.Then yesterday, she "deframented" my hard drive, whatever that means, and I was able to post this collage. (Arty Girlz)for Crazy Amigo's What Keeps Me Warm and One Powerful Hour's Warm and Cozy challenges. Keep your fingers crossed for me because I was been miserable while I was unable to communicate with you. You know how other people take blogging breaks? Well, I don't want one! Blogging inspires me and I like to talk to you about art and politics and random stuff. I can't do that, if I don't have any art to post. My words and thoughts just aren't that wise or original enough to stand alone. I do much so better with pictures. So, please, Santa, I'll try hard not to be naughty; just make my computer work!

Oh what a super pretty picture! Lovely work! And I'm so glad to catch you here this morning. I don't have an email for you so I'd left a comment on your previous post telling you that YOU ARE THE WINNER OF MY 100TH POST GIVEAWAY CONTEST!! But, I need you to email me with your info so I can send it to you. My email again is: dreamwiththefishes (at) rocketmail.com (of course, replace the (at) with @ and no spaces. I just wrote it that way here to prevent those spam search thingees from grabbing it). ((hugs)) Serena

And I hope and pray that your computer woes get all straightened out. I know how that is and it's extremely frustrating. xoxo Serena

Since I've barely been on my computer these past couple of weeks I was just happy to see you today! Sorry you're having computer problems....computers drive me crazy when they don't work right. Hopefully it will all be better and you can continue to show us more of your wonderful art.

We all missed you. I thought you might be taking a little lazy break like me. I just got too lazy to do it. I'm in you boat about needing art to show in order to tell.

I did miss you and your wonderful pieces! I hope that your computer gets all better soon...I too do not know what I would do if I could not blog...

I love your interpretation of the theme...makes me want to go bake some sugar plums (not that I know what they are)

Thanks for taking the challenge!

Oh you poor thing! I'd be LOST, and I do take blogging breaks...not self imposed, but breaks, none the less. I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

I LOVE your piece for This Thursday!! Of course, I love ALL your artwork, but with this one, I especially love her little cup cake head--or it could be ice cream on top of a cone...at any rate, she's a treat! Makes me smile! Love the colors, patterns and the eyelashes!!

Leslie said...

I'm glad you're back-I missed your collages and posts-sorry to hear about your computer woes and I hope everything gets fixed.

Love this piece with the big eyes and eyelashes-very cool!

Hugs,
Leslie
