Two SiSters Mary Thoughts for the Day ~ August

when genuine passion moves you, 
say what you've got to say, and say it hot.

PrisciLLa's EarthLy DeLights

 Check out this Fantastic Cake Carrier.

This is the first time I've seen this design and I knew I had to have it.

The Lagniappe: Pie carrier on top, Cake carrier on bottom.

Which for Me, means, during the HoHo Holidays,
I can carrier TWO pies quite easily.
{Priscilla says: You can't ever have enough Pie, SiSter}
yeah, no joke! remember those 6 pies I made last Thanksgiving?!

although, it just screams Cocount Cake....yum.

August ~ Leo The Lion

who tamed who?

Gold Lion ~ Yeah Yeah Yeahs

These remind me of days and nights spent shopping
in the huge malls and stores in Kuwait
and the Bazaar in Turkey'
with their rows and rows of Bangles.
Gold, esp. these types of Bangles are
traditional in Turkey to give as wedding gifts.

Beat the heat with these Beauties ~
add a breezy Skirt
and Candlelight dinner,
you've got it made in the Shade.

 A perfect card to send
to A Some One..
also my favorite Summer flowers.

Back to School....

Rainbowlicious.....Muffin Style


We Love Rainbows.
I've been wanting to try these Rainbow Cupcakes
{Rainbow pancakes are next}.
So we did.

They came out really Fantastic looking...
I didn't even frost them because I didn't want to hide any of the CoLoR~
we got lots of compliments on them.


Gather your supplies:
White Cake Mix
Food CoLoRing
Six Bowls
Muffin / Cupcake pan

Mix the cake mix per instructions.
if you add the Yolk,
it makes the batter yellow
and your colors will be off.

I used a measuring cup
to equally divide the batter into the bowls.
It worked out to approx. 3/4 cup of batter 
in each bowl.

Start coloring to your desired shade or satisfaction.
Once you have done that,
start layering in your pan.

 I used a Muffin pan for 2 reasons:

1} The bigger size yields a better Rainbow
2} 6 Muffins will disappear quicker than 12 Cupcakes

and yes, I used the old
to make sure I was layering correctly!
{obviously, the Purple is IV}


it just makes me so damn Happy.

My FaVoRiTe tOOLs ~ Dremel Work Station

is da BomB!

How could I have not gotten this til now???
I've been running around
trying to figure out what power tools to get 
and with this one stand I can combine at least three of what I need: 

drill press

When working with smaller pieces,
especially Resin,
you need the smaller tools.
And you need to be able to have both hands free.
The mostest greatest thing is the
itty bitty tiny little holes 
that I can now place anywhere I want
using the smallest Drill Bit and the Dremel.

You get a clean, professional strike
{in Resin, you can see EVERY crack, drill mistake, and crevice}

I've been going through all my Old Pieces,
and trying out different things.

Next up,
is some work drilling GLaSS.
The goal is to be able to manipulate the GLaSS piece,
and hopefully minimize jumpage.

Ta to The Chook Man..MUAH!!!
{caused he'd rather have me at home, safe with my Toys,
than out chasing Thugs}

Tania Marmolejo

I discovered Ms. Marmolejo today, 
in the midst of my cyber~surfing;
a standout Art,
in the overwhelming sea of images.....
I was immediately SmiTTen

They are,
Seductive and Inviting.
Inducing within Me, a desire to leap into the
painting and be with her....

The Artist...
She inspires Me.

She is with Her work
where I want to be with Mine.
Her figures are Realistic 
with this Dreamy quality.
To render that in Paint and Pencil....

Her LoVe for Women
and their Beauty 
seems obvious to Me. 
I'm not a critic,
I just know what appeals to me.

I look at her art~
I want to spout Poetry....
I know no Poetry.
just sayin.

Not being prolific in this type of painting,
these types of prints always draw me in.....
{yes, yes I did}

Of course the Red paint is Lagniappe.
Here at home, Lagniappe is where it's at, 
the best part, 
a TreaT!

It looks to me like Cadmium Red Deep
BeStiLL my beating Heart.
