Planet Connie

Hey Ya'll,

I haven't fallen off the planet...just been hanging out on my own little planet...they like me there!  Spending lots of time daydreaming and planning projects, mulling over "stuff"  I have no shortage of ideas.  I proceed to go all manic and want to do everything at once usually when it is time to go to work.  Yeah, I made a flower headband before I came to the office this morning!  So I guess that counts as a Day 1 creative endeavor.  I have spent the greater part of too much doggone time researching, reading and browsing "creativity" sites and books about being creative that I failed to notice I am creative every day.  Although I should probably be less creative with my bookkeeping and accounting (that is a joke)  So my loyal fans...stick around and I may just share some of my projects...I am seeing how much of my stash of art/craft supplies I can plow through without purchasing new stuff.

Birthday celebrations are still underway...since I started late...I plan to continue until about February or so.
Favorite riding in the car music this week...the soundtrack from "Wicked"  It reminds me of the recent wonderful trip to NYC, the fabulous play at the Gershwin Theater, about how being different is not a bad thing, being popular is overrated, judging people = not good, defying gravity can be a good thing, to stand for something (or you will fall for anything)  "people" in charge do not always have your best interests at heart...stay informed, the line in a song that states, "no good deed goes unpunished"...that was my friend Dot Dot's favorite comment! 

It is a rainy, cold Winter day and I find I am missing my fallen comrads something terribly today.  Sleep well my pretties until we meet again. 

Excuse me, I must go find my sparkly ruby slippers...

Can't wait to see what crafts you come up with! I've been in a crafting slump with no new ideas running through my head so I hope to pick your brain or pictures or both!

That cake looks DELICIOUS! And very good advice. Reminds me of a blog post I wrote "No good deed goes unpunished." About feeding all the stray cats and having them use my porch as a toilet. Good thing the turkeys keep their poo in the yard! LOL Love ya babes!

I saw "Wicked" in NYC too. What an awesome show. I loved every minute.

Happy birthday! That's a delicious looking cake!

You never cease to amaze me! Can't wait to see some of your latest creations. How about having a class for some of your less creative friends?
