How much would?

After an arguably interesting day trying to get a large dry erase board home for B, he has since decided he is a human canvas.


And he says, “See? Dey wash-a-ble. It say here.”

Kids are sponges, I know this, but it’s still this really cool trick when they actually listen and repeat what you tell them.

Anyway, last night I did several things.

1. Ignore absurd court documents.
2. Try to understand why Walmart gives me fibromyalgia like symptoms (came to the conclusion it’s due to the overstimulation of all 5 senses)
3. Spend $86 at said Walmart, tried to figure out how, then left all stuff that isn’t cold in the floor to be dealt with today.
4. Answered an email from, as someone had complained that my information was falsified.
5. Made some art!

This one I had laid out at right after Christmas. Oops. Took me a little while to get on paper.

My host family understands my need to make art, both on a creative and therapeutic level, so they have provided me with space to scatter my junk and supplies to work with. I had some stuff, but not all.

This is the layout from late December:


While drying last night


And today:


I didn’t have modpodge, so their daughter let me use her blue glue, which I think actually added to the eeriness of the idea.

I love it.

Next, I’ve been working on this dog for a bit. I had been so excited to get an actual idea immediately, I skipped necessary preparation and forgot to sand off the incredible amount of glaze, so I had it almost finished and then had to wash it all off and start over.


I’m going to do a detailed explanation of that one soon, but now I must shower.

    Wonderful dog 🙂 The detail is great!

    How awful to get a negative feedback from gofundme – when they say ‘someone’ says you made falsified claims, does that mean you have to prove things? I’m curious how they work it out, as I can imagine (actually, hadn’t thought of it until your post here) that sometimes others wouldn’t want you “making that money” for your campaign, and therefore could try & sabotage. I hope it hasn’t had a bad impact.

    Take care,

      I assume that the person making said claims is a person who wants me to remain lawyer-less and ignorant of all law type words.

      I know 2 things. Art and dermatology. Law words are confusing to me.

      Luckily, I immediately responded and while I offered proof to be sent they said my word was good enough. So ha ha!

    Camille I’m looking for the link to the other blog you had, where you were telling about the court situ. You might be in the thick of it now so disregard this if it’s just more stress, but I would like to know how you are.

    Sincere best, N’n.
