How is it that I keep getting new followers? I'm not quite sure. But I really appreciate it!

I have been such a slacker on posting lately. I know, you kind of expect that from me, right? But I have just been feeling really fizzled out these days. I have a lot to say about it and where I think it comes from, but it will have to wait. I'm headed to my mom's right now to have leftovers for lunch. Yay!

I will be back later, hopefully, with an explanation to my lackluster attitude (maybe even with pictures!). Until then, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

May I Introduce You:

As you all know, there are plenty of sellers on Etsy that garner a whole lot of hoopla that they do not really deserve. I'm not being mean. It is just the truth. It baffles me how some sellers get so much attention while others who truly deserve the spotlight hardly get a chance.

So when I run across such a talented artist as Rose Wong, I just have to share it with as many people as I can. This girl's work knocks my socks off!

The title of Rose's shop is Go Happy, which is good advice for all of us. Yet her art conjures up so many emotions.

This one, in particular, is killing me. (I will probably be ordering it before the day is out.) I have felt like my heart was doing just that before, haven't you?

The complexity of her work just amazes me. Yet, even with all the pattern and detail, Rose's pieces still emit a certain sort of calm. A sort of zen.

In case you are wondering about her medium, most of her art is traditionally drawn with good ol' ink pens and then colored in digitally. As a student at Pratt Institute with a major in Illustration, I believe that Rose Wong has an amazing future ahead of her. What do you think?

Please click over and take a look at Rose's store. I just picked a few of my favorite pieces to share with you. There are plenty more, though, all enticingly priced.

The devil made me do it.

Just when you think the coast is clear and all the Valentine's candy is gone.

I want to be outside right now working in my yard. Unfortunately, my nasal cavities feel like they have acid running through them and I have a smashing headache right behind my eyes. It seems as though I have developed allergies. Yay. Just what I always wanted.

I thought now would be a good time to share a few pics from our trip to Atlanta. I'm sure that most of you couldn't care less about a motocross race. But this is what we do. We race. And being there at the Georgia Dome for this event was crazy fantastic for everyone in our little group.

Our friend's son got to have lots of pictures made with all the pretty girls. (and there are A LOT of stupidly hot girls at the Supercross. makes a normal girl feel quite homely.)

But who cares?! I got to have my picture taken with Cary Hart. I'm not one to give a crap about meeting celebrities. But when that celebrity can do a backflip on a dirtbike? Hells yeah.

Our friend J, me and the Hubs.

Our seats were right behind the starting gate. Not the best place in the house to see all of the track, but it was pretty cool to get to see the racers come out and line up right in front of us.

The racing was awesome. The opening ceremony was kick ass. Getting to hang out in the pits and watch the mechanics and racers getting ready was priceless. Now, if only we can get that little guy in the top photo to this point. He's really good. Just wait till he gets a few more years on him. Maybe we'll get to see him race here some day.
