Where Did Summer Go?

Okay so this is a really big weekend right? Well never for my family lol. But lots of people load up the boat or camper and take off for the weekend! We're going to stay around the homestead, maybe go to the Pool, and visit Grants Farm which is always a fun. This weekend always makes me sad, because it's the last weekend for the pools to be open and to me that signifys that summer is coming to an end. I am sooo not a winter person! I love fall, but then couldn't we just skip straight to spring? I mean I wouldn't object, really, I wouldn't. Maybe it's time I consider moving to a state that stays warmer all year! Anyway I hope you all stay safe this weekend whatever your plans are!

Yesterday I listed a sweet little new mermaid painting on ebay she's 5 x 5 with extra thick gallery sides so she can hang or sit on a shelf. Titled "Cherish". Hope you all like her! xo Michele

Woooo Hoooo I finally got the video to load!! I think I was being impatient! Because I finally left it loading and went to bed and when I woke up it was loaded lol! So anyway, it's certainly not the best video, I learned a lot while making it, but it's my first :o) so hopefully they will get better from here! Hope you all enjoy a peek at how I make the glass pendants! xo Michele

Great News!

I want to thank everyone that wrote to me with well wishes, prayers, chants, sending healing, every single one of you...a big thank you with tons of hugs attached! I went to the doctor today for the results of my PET scan and it is all scar tissue none of it is cancer! WOOO HOOO!! I have never been so relieved!! So hopefully things can get back to normal here now, whatever that is! But I really want you all to know what your emails meant to me, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

More good news, I finished a couple more pendants which I listed tonight on ebay http://stores.ebay.com/michele-lynch-art The gypsy one I made into a You Tube video! YAY! but boo because I can't get it to upload! It's a wmv file but it just keeps spinning that loading thing for hours! I thought it would only take like 10 minutes to upload?? anyone have any ideas?? It's driving me nuts! Here's my You Tube channel if I ever get it uploaded lol http://www.youtube.com/michelely

Any help for the video challenged would be appreciated lol!!

Thanks again for all the well wishes sent my way!! I just know they are what brought the positive outcome!! xo Michele

Looking Ahead

Looking Ahead is one of the glass pendants that I painted this week for ebay. She is another piece of art that came about because of the recent things going on in my life. I'm trying to only look forward never back, because even yesterday is not something we can change, we can only affect tomorrow and how we choose to spend it. Hope you all like the two new pendants I'm listing on ebay tonight. I love hearing comments! xo Michele

Take Time To Smell The Roses

It's funny that just recently I did a post about being a worka a holic and how much I loved what I did etc, it took having a doctor find nodules in my right lung for me to think...Uh oh...maybe I had better slow down a bit and enjoy the world around me a little more. So that's how this little mermaid artwork came about. We recently took a trip to Florida where the internet signal was not the best in the condo and I took no brushes, canvas, etc...with me, so I sat on the beach and slowly learned to relax, that it was okay to take in the fresh salt water air, to listen to the waves rolling over the beach, it was okay to do nothing but watch the seagulls fight for a cheeto my son had thrown to a group of them. I learned to just enjoy the moment.

Hope you all enjoy her as much as I did creating her. She is mixed media: acrylic, watercolor, scrapbook paper, and german glass glitter. Lemme know what you all think! You can see more pictures of her on ebay where she is listed for auction:

I'm trying to get up to speed with the blogging here soon! xo Michele

Catch Up

Okay I'm going to try to play catch up here! Things slowed down for me for a bit because first I got sick with pneumonia and then pleurisy--not a fun time there! But what happened was they saw some "nodules" as they call them on my xrays so now I've spent since the end of June having more xrays, a cat scan and now next week a Pet scan. I'm still thinking it's nothing but it's enough to scare me into not smoking! So now I've become the doughnut queen. Hmmm...we'll have to have a discussion about favorite doughnuts LOL!

So anyway, then I left to go on vacation at the end of July until this past weekend. We were in Panama City Florida this year which was nice, I do have to confess that Destin is still my favorite though. The picture of the hammerhead shark was taken from the 6th floor balcony of the condo we rented for the time we were there...I thought it was a kids floatie for a minute LOL! Uh nope, that's the real deal...right up by the shore! The other pics are of my husband and me and then one of my kids. It looks like Zach the younger one is crying in the picture, lol, but he's actually just laughing that hard!

I listed a couple of pendants on ebay yesterday, and there are several more that I'll be listing tonight. I also have several paintings that will be listed here soon! Woo Hooo I'm back on a roll! Email anytime, you know I love hearing from you all! xo Michele
