Happy New Year


I want to start off apologizing for my cranky post yesterday.  That's not how a New Years post should start.  I was browsing through first posts of the year for other bloggers. 

VE's fist post of the year was about his blogroll.  If you get on his blogroll he pays money to those commenting regularily over a certain number of times, if you choose to request it.

 Kurt's was about getting a part for his copier so he could provide his OPE zine readers with their latest copy of the magazine.  You can subscribe to Kurt's OPE zine.  Just visit his site for details.  He's one of those artist's I was talking about yesterday that we should be supporting!!!  His zine is funny.  Subscribe.  He still suck's for quitting his blog though and deleting all of his archives.  I suppose it's his way of protesting the lack of respect for artistic talent and showing us that if we want to enjoy good art we should support the artist.   

Over at I'd Rather Be Blogging, she talks about her inability to discern between the body wash and shampoo in the shower.  A post on the "old fogie" brain syndrome.  A riviting piece.

Serena has pictures of dying insects.  She received some devastating family news and has been sad.  Okay, maybe that wasn't a happy post, but she has a positive outlook for the new year.  I wish her the best with whatever the crisis is. 

BumbleVee has THE cutest little itty bitty hand made bear rolling in the snow.  I want one. NOW! 

Fuzzy Dragons she has her goals for the year, artistically speaking.  They have lots of snow in the part of Scotland where she is. 

There are a lot more wonderful posts.  Those are the ones I read this morning though.

She does look too happy for my tired brain. And I am just curious, does Kurt really mail out an OPE zine thingy? I truly just thought it was something that he just joked about. Boy am I slow. Please let me know.

God bless.

So many blogs, so little time!

She does look insanely happy.

i didn't find the last post cranky, people need to start realizing that artists are important and just like anyone else's job need to be paid properly for their time and effort.

you could always draw one of you smiling?

Kurt said...

Interesting theory about Kurt's blog - I suppose if you paid me $500, I would blog for three more months.

Nice try;-) Until you tell us the real reason, I'll just keep making up my own.

Kurt said...

BTW - is that you in the pic?

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

lol. No, I'm no longer a teenager unfortunately.

BumbleVee said...

hey Chockie ..... glad my post gave you a smile... that's my idea for things at my blog these days...
we can all use some more fun in our lives.

My Mom used to say...if we're not worth a laugh, we're not worth much.... of course, she used to tell us that when we were embarrassed because some jerk was laughing at us..but...what the hey..it helped....

Yes...I do sell my bears... but, I don't have any for sale at the moment... and my wrist is still not great...so am still not holding materials etc... hopefully soon. I'll email you .....

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Wonderful! (about the bears and emailing me, not about your sore wrist;-)

Serena said...

She looks deliriously happy in that pic....you must have said something extremely funny. :) No need to apologise at all. It's your blog and I totally agree with you in your previous post....the true worth of many artists out there is just not appreciated. I would be on Cloud 10 (Cloud 9 is way overcrowded) if I had just an inkling of your talent and expertise with coloured pencils. I live in hope.........sigh...

Serena, you are an incredibly talented artist and you can paint circles around me if you start working with coloured pencils!
