This morning I had to take a bit of a break and just make something for no reason. I do that a lot. I had a bunch of flowers I cut out awhile back and never put them to use....so I threw together a plant for "someones" garden just for fun. I'm usually working on at least three different mediums of art at a time. I get stale if I just stick to one thing too long. Guess that's why I'll never Mass Produce anything - I would go bonkers.
Then I had to play with "Picasa" and manipulate some of my photo's of the butterflies. I love that program. So Easy and Fast. If you haven't tried it.... You Should!
Then I had to give the Dog's a bath! Seriously.... this is not an altered photo. He was shakin' his head and I had it on high speed and WooHoo.... cool picture!
Now... Unfortunately, I have to go figure out what's for Dinner
I HATE THAT PART!

That was the chant repeated by all for the 87th burning of ZoZoBra that thrilled crowds in Santa Fe last Thursday. Fun was had by all. Old Mr. Gloom was almost 50 ft tall and 1500lbs, but it went down fast when the fire dancers finally lit him up. I had hoped to video tape it, but my camera died even before it was over (nothing more upsetting than losing some of the best shots to a dead battery).

" Little Ranch of the Crow "This is the name of my Mom's "Little Ranch". There are no cows, no horses, no pigs..... just CROWS and Iris. Although, there was a Black Bear with her cubs that decided to tear down all the hummbingbird feeders and drink the sweet nectar last week. Due to the terrible Fire up towards Los Alamos lots of animal are headed down the mountain in search of food. Bears are not at all something you see in her backyard.
Anyway, It's Mom's Birthday, (posting this a little after the fact so she can't see her present) so we headed to New Mexico to celebrate another year and of course for the ZoZoBra celebration (pics to come later). I thought she should have a little gift that represents her 'Little Ranch" with all it's crows and of course all the beautiful Iris that she grows.
Happy Birthday, Mom ~ I Love You!!!
The sign measures about 19"x24"
There's Mom in her old Jalope!
