I am currently working on a Web site for my small art publication and as well as for my school project.

I need artists, photographers, and writers, crafters, everything artistic or musicially inclined.

I want to have a column for people who are interested in having art pals or have an art journal they would like to send back and forth!?

I need people who have creative tutorials they would like to share and put in the publication.

I need people who are into poetry and writing or journaling that either have tips for getting rid of writers block or would like to share a short writing.

I have a few people i especially admire looking at their art on here I would like to have them as an inspiring artist page.

If you have special or really cool photographs that just speak to your heart, I would like to include them.

All rights and recognitions would go to the person who created it or photographed it.

i haven't wrote in forever. i feel like i have been in hiding when in all actuallity i have been working for 7 straight days and its not even over yet. i have been penciling out ideas in my head of my new creations i am about to take upon. so much is going on. my sister gets married this saturday and i just want to find some time where i can do some of my art. i have bought a NEW sketch book and decided i must invest in a moleskine journal because it can go anywhere with me in my purse and no one will know. most things strike me as intruiging while i am out on the lake. too many things go through my mind. i need a traveling notebook. i need to start writing more. i need to start doing things that are theraputic. i need it.

shes changed

i've learned a lot.
i've changed a lot.

i am:
happy;
in love;
content;
tired;
frustrated;
worn out;
and many more to follow;

i went from no organization to a lot of organization.
i went from completely lonely to completely loved and comfortable and not alone.
i went from sleeping alone to waking up to the most amazing man in the world each morning.
i became a pet owner.
i learned to stand up for myself more than before.
i learned to not be stupid about some things.
i learned a new kind of patience;new kind of love; new kind of lifestyle.
i changed degrees and i appreciate art and music more and more each day.
i appreciate literature and i spend so much time with my daughter and i love her.
i fish more too and think too much but don't write enough anymore.
ok i am just complaining and being happy at the same time.
there is no point to this; and its going no where.
i just needed to write to get feeling like myself again.
i am looking into screen printing and will be doing more of my art stuff.
my phone has been broken for a month now. i am pissed.

she found real love

and while i was surfing myspace for lack of anything-better-to-do;
i ran into your picture; i froze.
it's been months since i have talked to you.
i just sent you back your dogtag in the beginning of may.
maybe that was my curse.
i had no choice but to move on; and im sorry but i am not.
sorry if i hurt you ever; but i found someone so amazing that makes me feel equally special.
someone who is exactally like me.
we are like twins of the opposite sex; seperated at birth.
i wish you the best in life; i do.
i've found a real love and not one that was lust or infatuation.
i hate running into you in photographs or dreams.
i want to forget you; truly i do.

in 2005.... a toast to the new year.

in two thousand and five i learned what it was to fall & more than once; only to get back up & try again.
i learned the meaning of true beauty & i learned the true meaning of ugly.
i found who my true friends were& i learned i can only depend on myself.
i learned what it was to be "sick" and suffer from depression & i learned what it is to take care of my health.
i built a wall so big no one could enter & pushed away the ones i love doing so.
i was blinded by evil & i still confide in God.
i learned the meaning of being poor & i learned what it was to not be able to eat & i learned what it was like to be miles from home and have nothing & what it was to keep on going & if you hold on long enough then you will make it.
i learned what it was to be taken advantage of & i learned what it is to be used.
i have loved & i have felt hate. hate from the ones i confided in and in return they stabbed me in the back with a 1000 knives.
i learned i shouldnt trust so easily but after trusting so easily & to be torn apart & harassed.
i learned you cannot live with friends & that next time i should live with a complete stranger.
i have built new friendships & others have been destroyed.
i learned i should have listened to everyone years ago when they told me she was a kniving little bitch.
but i failed to see it & i kept trusting her with everything i had & every little secret.
i was a mother of one which soon became two & then back to one.
i have lost ones who were dear to me & tried to hide that broken smile with an untrue smile.
ive come a long ways in life but only after running from what i feared & now im not scared anymore.
i have developed insomnia & hate laying in bed at night for hours thinking & fretting about failing again the next day.
i moved far away from this place & i moved again; only to come back to what it is i dread ( this town).
i have stumbled upon long lost friends, old classmates, & old aquantances.
ive learned som have changed for the best & some have changed for the worst & some will just never change.
usually the ones you wish would grow up & stop acting so stupid.
ive stumbled upon my long lost love after two years when i ran from him because i was too scared of being hurt & have learned to love again.
i learned of how this world is ugly in so many ways & have found little beauty far & between.
i have met some really cool people & i have seen some really ugly people; that not being by looks but their soul or innerselves.
i learned of more beauty behind music & i have started writing more & love to write once again.
i have developed a love for words & love being different.
i have fought with my thoughts of self esteem & i have suffered from a lot of horrifying things & i still cant let go of her & everytime i go back to that small town i break down crying while im drinking & have to leave because i cant handle it & everyone around me reminds me of her.
i learned what it is to truly be alone & to stare at the same walls over&over again & feel secluded from civilization.
i have shared a lot of great conversations & spent time with people in life & shared memories i will never forget.
i once found a place i felt i fit in & suddenly that was taken from me too.
i have learned a lot & i have learned a little.
i have loved & i have been broken.
i have made progress in life but for every step i took forward.. sometimes ended up taking me two or three steps back.
i have fallen & i have gotten back up.
i have learned how much more family is important & i have heard a scared mothers voice & heard the hatred she had towards that girl for what she has done.
i have gained a lot & i have lost alot.
i have learned i still love acting like a child & running around dancing in the streets & acting like a huge dork & doing stupid things that others that are no fun would dream of doing.
i have learned to love again & i hope the new year is better than the last & a lot like the year before the last.
i hope i learn more this year & become even stronger than i am & i build more friendships or mend old bridges with old friends that i just lost contact with.
this year has been full of rocks in the roads & not much this year has been easy at all; i just keep on keeping on & will make it some how or some way i always do.

♥ to all; may your new year be great and filled with fun and happiness
