I'm frame hunting. Getting ready to show some of my watercolors and colored pencil drawings. Plus, I'm working on a few fiber art projects that look promising.

I'm going to have to manage my time a lot better from here.

King Michael's Golden Sarcophagus

Felt like the ceremony for the burial of a beloved Pharaoh who would be laid out in his golden sarcophagus for time immemorial. Very fitting farewell.

Social Media's Exploding Frontier

Wow! When you're thinking about taking it to the next level; that need to reach out and reach more, it is probably already there waiting for you on those social media sites you frequent (probably everyday) just waiting for your light bulb to go off.

Case in point! It occurred to me that Twitter might be a great place to reach out to women who needed an instant morale and self-esteem boost! I've been going a little bonkers trying to figure out how best to share my absolute thrill with what I've been exposed to through Ardyss International. I have actually been experiencing some self-anger and exasperation because I felt like I might be cheating some folks out of something they really, really wanted and needed because of my inability to share.

It was with that sense of frustration that I noticed something on a friend's Twitter (a friend I highly respect), something about Magpie. I clicked it and bang! it was exactly what I was looking for! Launch viral advertising campaigns on Twitter with Magpie!

What was so kewl about it was I felt like I was really in control of how I would use it. Better yet, it offered me the affordability that I really, really needed to at least take a stab at really sharing the things like body reshaping and to get a feel for what I was thinking would really be advantageous to someone else. And, while the first attempt has just begun, I am so encouraged! I feel like I'm pro-active now and not just reacting to my frustration ineffectively!

Time will tell and I promise you! I will let you know!
