I'm content tonight . . .

It's New Year's Eve - it's approaching the new year in less than an hour and I am alone (everyone else has gone to their own rooms), listening to music and making stuff. A couple of Michelob Ultra's (just a couple!), good music cranked up, tummy full from the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever had (from dear hubby and I say it every time he makes one for me), foggy outside, warm inside, 3 dogs at my feet, and nothing but art to think about - pure contentment.

Drops . . .

Happy New Years Ms. TumbleFish and family! I very much enjoyed meeting you, virtual-ly so to speak, this year as well!
I have enjoyed our blog comment chats so much so that I will turn a blind eye to the Michelob beer (which I've never had but obviously feel free to pass judgment on haha) I recommend MooseHead, Canadian beer EH! Though my sweetie is partial to Bavarian heffeweizen. And now you wonder "Did I ask your beer preferences woman? Did I sit here on New Years Eve with baited breath on the edge of my seat filled with wild curiosity and Michelob about the beer you and yours partake in?"
er, well no you didn't, but there you have it anyways! haha
We are content tonight as well! One of us is whistling and working on code-y computer stuff, one of us is cackling at old British comedies whilst getting their fingers sticky in clay (and now my keyboard because I felt compelled to comment right away) and both of us are awaiting midnight so we can pop out on to the patio and see what we can see. Fireworks!! Usually we can see several displays, can't wait!
HAPPY NEW YEEEEEEEEEEEEARS!

p.s. I think your collages you posted in the last couple days are fricking awesome! Seriously cool. I especially love the dude with the multiple arms and the "Power over Me" guy. VERY cool, a little edgy. I love all your stuff and have been slack about commenting but just wanted to say I've been enjoying what you've shared with your blog readers! LUCKY US!!!

I have to do it...every year I do it to some one, the same lame joke...but I HAVE to do it, it's in my DNA or water or something......here goes...
"I can NOT believe I haven't commented here since LAST year!"

Tace, I'll renew my stalking contract for the new year and tell you that I love you, I really do. Now I must go to my secret hidden creepy room and light the candles around your wall of pictures.

Tace said...

Contract accepted, as long as you add wicked awesome fairy wings to all my pictures...I insist upon it. Also I prefer un-scented candles, bees wax of course and those really long incense sticks. You don't have to light them, just be sure they're there, in some lovely dragon style incense stick holders. The sort that look like their nostrils are smoking, should you choose to actually light them.

Darn! I only have the cone shaped incense in the little log cabins (where it looks like there's smoke coming out of the chimney).

Tace said...

Cone shaped incense will do......it'll have to do.

Happy New Year honey! I blew my wiener whistle at midnight! LOL. No, not really...the cats are afraid of it! For some weird reason! But I love it and they have a place of honor on my desk top! : D

Hope your new year is filled with the best of things. Looking forward to seeing all that you do. Love the spots.

Happy New Year, Marsha!

I don't know what Tace is talking about. I'm a beer snob and Mic Ultra is actually a really nice, very light lager. :)

The art that you've posted in the last few days shows a really exciting energy - it feels like you're stretching and exploring, and the results are stunning. You are amazing!

Happy New Year, Marsha! I just came over from Flickr. Your blog is absolute eye candy, and I'm adding you to my blog roll right now, so I can visit you often.

XOXO,
Alberta
