Attn!!!! Help!!!

ATTN!! All of my Friends and Watchers.
My adopted daughter, Grim, is stuck in Canada and is having trouble finding work so that she can earn the ticket to come home.
She has Prints, Fans, and Bookmarks for sale at my store: [link] Please Go There!!! Please Buy Stuff!!! Even a $1.50 bookmark is $1.50 that brings her closer to coming home to us. Also, if you can spend more, any sales of jewelry at my store will go to the fund to bring her home. If you'd like something custom, we can work that out too, and I'll donate that money as well. Face it folks. I'm a stay at home artist, and the only way I can earn money to help Grim out, is to sell jewelry.

This has been a blatant plea for sales to help the "Bring Grimmy Home" fund, Brought to you by her Mum, Feather

HAPPY NATIONAL HANGOVER DAY!!!

*giggles*
No hangovers here, though Pyro's got a splitter due to stress...poor guy...
It's General Deconstruction Day here, and I GET MY DAMNED WORKTABLE BACK DAY!!! Hooray! After I'm done here, I put all my pressies away, tear down the tree, lights and all this year cause a strand is bad, stuff it all back in the hippie van until tomorrow, and look at my nice clean worktable for the last time until next xmas! I've got dishes to do...Kaos is making turkey today, yeah, more food I won't eat much of. Thank the godz Pyro's here. At least he's got a healthy appetite.
I started a drawing yesteday, but I got to a point where I was seriously unhappy with one of the poses. Elsidi looks okay from the waist up, but his legs are all gollywhompus. Yes, that's a word. An artistic word, I swear! Pyro sez Feather's face is too round. Is not!! Who's peeling this banana anyway?
Anyway, once I get my chores out of the way, I'll go back to the drawing. Hopefully, Grim will be up, and I can get some pointers from her. HELP, Help!
I spent yesterday in my room while Kaos and Pyro played video games, and Grim was on the PC. It was a quiet new year's, and that's okay by me. I heard from every member of my family, but for Iron Deacon. Not surprised there. He's seriously lacking in the obligatory phone call department. hehe.
Not much else to say. I'll enjoy the deconstruction and renewal of my worktable. Maybe I won't smoke as much with it back. If my hands aren't busy, I chainsmoke. That's bad, really bad.
I also have to tally up my reciepts for the year and be disgusted by how much I spent on supplies. I get to tally up the really low number of sales too. I'll be depressed about that... I hate doing the tallies, I really do, but KY needs their Sales tax money, so a-tallying I must go. *sigh*
OH, HEY! We get the minivan tomorrow!! yeah! You know what that means? ROADTRIP!!! Me and L., and Grim are going to Evansville for...you guessed it, more supplies! *sigh* Hopefully, nothing will strike me as "I need this". I think the whole point of the trip is just to get out and drive cause I can now. Bad news is that the truck took a shit just a few days ago. It never fails. Kaos thinks it's the gas pump again. The car gods must hate me.
Well, I'm off, cause there's loads of stuff to do.
Hope Your Year ended on a good note, and I hope the New One will be great for everyone!
Cheers!
Feather

Holidaze...

Merry Merry Christmas to all, and a Very Happy and Bright New Year to you as well!!!
Hello and good Cheer from KY!!! *this is me waving because I'm retarded and can't put in the little emoticon*
This year has had it's ups and downs, and as I do the tallying, it's mostly been ups.
Kaos is permanent at Ragu, and the money's good, even if the hours are a little rough. At least he doesn't have to work as HARD anymore.
Grim-Away is here, enjoying the freedom of being an artist, and growing in good soil.
The Boys are going through a rough spot, but I'm confident they'll find some happiness and peace in the upcoming year.
I'm happy, the happiest I've ever been in my life. Kaos has given me the best thing in the whole world, and I'm so very grateful that we're together. My only regret is that I didn't notice 10 years sooner how much he cared about me. It doesn't matter. We're together now.
Christmas was absolutely fantastic. It wasn't really anything that I recieved... I really felt the best when I watched Kaos and Grim open what I'd gotten for them. Grim with her new Manga program, and Ichigo's second sword... Kaos playing Guitar Hero 2 for PS2. He just put it down after playing it for three hours. That's what makes me delighted.
Okay, I did get some really cool things.
Kaos got me Masamune. It's huge!!! It's beautiful too.
My mom sent me a few pieces of Egyptian Jewelry, two lotus and cartouche bracelets, and an old piece of costume jewelry that was her mother's. I put the necklace on the Egyptian shelf in my japanese hutch (don't ask), and I'm wearing the the two bracelets as new permanent additions to my regular wear, but I have to keep an eye on them. I'm especially rough on my bracelets, and these are the kind that can come apart if I catch them on anything.
She also sent me two really neat dragon rings. One is way too big, but I'll slip it onto one of my necklaces. The other is slightly too small for my middle finger, so I'll fish out the ring mandrel and bang it up half a size so it fits.
We spent some quality time with my brother and his family. I invited EZ to come and spend the night at our house one weekend. It was really an open invitation for any time she wants to. She's 11 and growing up loving anime, and I'm teaching her to weave. She's doing pretty good at it so far...
Grim is exhausted and sleeping right now. I know she went to bed happy, and that means the world to me. I've grown to care so much for her, and she really has become my daughter. We laugh and joke about how dysFUNctional we are, but she knows we all love her. Even Iron Deacon made a special effort to make her feel like one of us, and I'm glad he's my kin. *cringes* (Did I just say kin? It's time for a visit to NJ!!!)
All in all, we're happy down here, but there have been some bad things, right here at the end of the year.
An old friend of Pyro's committed suicide just last friday. He's taking her death really hard. I didn't know her very well, but she had the brightest, truest, heart-warming smile I've ever seen. It's such a shame that she fell into despair and gave up. What Pyro tells me of her family is really horrible. They didn't announce her death in the paper, and cremated the body. Pyro, and many of the people that knew her are angry because there's no place to go and say good bye to her. Like I said, Pyro's taking it hard.
Both of my Dads have Emphysema now. My bio dad, and my stepdad. Biodad is in the hospital again this winter, just like he usually is, but this time, his heart's acting up. He's going to another hospital tomorrow and getting a heart cathiterization done. Meanwhile, stepmom is sick with bronchitis, sinusitus, and a neurological disorder. Our thoughts are with them.
Stepdad and biomom are sounding old. I worry about them too. Stepdad hasn't quit smoking yet, and soon, it won't help him one way or another. He's still working even though he's long past retirement age. I'm not sure if that's good for him or not. I don't think he'd be happy handing over the reins of the business he started. Youngest Brother will do just fine, even if he doesn't handle it the same way stepdad does.
I don't know.
All of this just makes me realize how short time really is, and how important our relationships are.
This Christmas, I'm just grateful.
Grateful for Kaos' good job...Hell, grateful for Kaos - Period.
Grateful that my sons can see me either down here, or in NJ when I visit in may. Grateful that they want to see me.
Grateful that ALL of my parents are still alive, and grateful that I have a fair relationship with all of them.
Grateful that I have one brother in town, one bit of family that's near me.
Grateful that I could help someone in need, and grateful to see her grow under our roof.
Grateful that I have so many wonderful friends around me, even if I never meet any of them face to face. They're all wonderful people.
Grateful that I have room to grow and flourish in an environment that I never dreamed of.
So, to all of you that know me, and even if you don't...
I'm not preaching any religeon, or speaking of one god, or many. I'm just saying that at this time of year, maybe you can look back and be grateful for the things that enrich your lives, and maybe, spread that to someone else who needs it. They could be your brother, a neighbor, or a friend, or a complete stranger. It doesn't matter, as long as you can smile for them, and smile with them.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Feather


The rapists, the ones that damage your talent...I hope there's a special hell just for them. I hope it exceeds the hell they've put me, and others like me, through.
For all of us that have survived, and will survive, here's the applause that you deserve!!! Living well is the best revenge;D

Holiday Hiatus...

Well, it's that time of year again. No. It's not what you're thinking. It's the time of year when I have to completely clear off my worktable. Talk about agony. *sigh* You see, our tree is really small, one of those tabletop ones. Our apartment is equally small, so if I want a tree, I have to have a table to put it on. Hence, the clearing of the worktable.
For a Creative Psychopath like me, it's really hard to actually put it all away. I'm midway through a sculpting project, so that's on hold. My beads are buried so deep under that poor card table I may never see them again, and the fabric? Hell, that's even deeper! I'm not counting the ginormous bin in the van outside.
What do I do to keep from going insane, you may ask?
I knit. I have a scarf that I call my "Christmas Scarf". I've been working on it for three years. Three years of only during xmas time, you understand. I'm more than halfway done with it, and if I actually finish it this year, I promised Grim she could have it. It's not perfect, there's dropped stitches all over the place, but it'll keep her warm.
I do a lot of writing too. Short stories, mostly, but sometimes I get a bug up my ass and actually work on the sequel to my novel. I should finish it at some point. People are actually waiting for it. It's a nice feeling.
So, while I call this my hiatus, it really isn't. It's...Knitting the xmas scarf time. hehe.
Cheers to all!
