Remember this decorative stand I painted black for halloween? Well, I spray painted it flat white this morning. Just throw on a quick brushing of Duck Egg Annie Sloan chalk paint and viola! Now it is ready for spring and Easter. Annie Sloan chalk paints are sold at www.pigeonintheparlour.com. (Holly, Michigan)
You are probably wondering why i am posting this information on my 'artsy-fartsy' blog. But i was victimized yesterday and instead of getting angry or feeling sorry for myself i have decided to do something more constructive with those emotions.
I am giving totally FREE information to defend yourself against this type of theft. Ignorance and denial will not prevent this from happening to you. So read what i have to say and watch the video on this link. It could prevent the hassle of canceling a card and a trip to the bank to settle financial disputes.
My affirmative action will be:
*Foil in my wallet to protect my card from getting scanned.
*Not let strangers into my personal space. I'm going to define my personal space as a three foot diameter (1 yard) around my body.
*I am going to need to be less friendly. I am way too friendly to strangers. This will be difficult for me, because being kind and friendly comes naturally to me. Behavior modification is hard work. It will require a genuine focus to consciously NOT BE FRIENDLY.
"MAY AWARENESS BE WITH YOU!!!"
Toad Hollow Grasshopper Gang is now available at amazon.com. I will also make it available at etsy.com.
Toad Hollow is for everyone! It is for the kid or the kid at heart. My stories are silly and filled with nonsense. But who survives life without a sense of humor?
Won't you join me in the world of Toad Hollow? It's a magical place with all manner of polite folk. Where life is simple and there always seems to be a reason to celebrate. Now doesn't that sound like just the kind of place you would sneak away to?! Look for me in Toad Hollow. ssshhh, i'm incognito as a turtle. Why a turtle you ask? Because i'm only a visitor - that's why i wear my house on my back!
p.s. if you like vintage halloween postcards and Wind in the Willows, you should like my Toad Hollow series.
p.s.s. i have prepared a little sneak preview for you (below). Enjoy! thanks!!! ; D
"I believe in an everyday sort of magic - the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places and people; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone."
Thanks for visiting!
