Hello From Hacienda Mosiaco

This week I am in Mexico attending an art retreat w Christy Tomlinson. We are staying at an amazing art hacienda called Hacienda Mosiaco.

I am learning to draw portraits today so I thought I would give you a peek at one or two, as well as a glimpse of the amazing mosaics all around this amazing place.

Monday’s Confessions with a side of sweet potato fries

So I am taking time out from my grass roots campaign to shame Carls Jr. Into bringing back those sticks of deliciousness that are the sweet potato fries. I mean am I the only one that is put out by the fact that they are no longer available!! Work with me people!!! Let’s join together and protest this crime against humanity. We should not stand for this –unite I say — unite!!!

Okay I’m done Rosa Parks-ing the sweet potato fries. Moving on, here are a couple of confessions.

I once used all the petty cash in my petty cash drawer while my boss was out of town. I took the petty cash and went to the post office and bought hundreds of dollars worth of stamps. See I had heard that the post office was raising the price of stamps and I just knew that they would use the old stamps before they used the new ones!! I still say that was sound reasoning!!! I thought I was soooo clever and taking initiative and saving money. Nope wasn’t. Classic fail. Of course when I got home and explained to inky Mimi what I had done she (after almost wetting herself while laughing) explained to me what a huge mistake I had made. Then she gave me lots of chores to do so that I could put the money back before my boss got back.

next confession:

I usually have great plot ideas for books or poetry while I am driving. I grab a notebook and jot down the notes while I am driving. Only when I look at my notes later I can barely read it and the thoughts I had have completely left my brain and so ….it goes unwritten. But one of these days…

Next confession:

If you were leaning into a closet and you were the same height as Mr. Inky and wearing the same color pants as Mr. inky you might have got your buns grabbed by me. It happened years ago but it is still sooo embarrassing!! Nuff Said!!!

Gotta go. I am getting my art on with a collage technique today and am loving it! I will head to Mexico this weekend to attend christy tomlinsonart retreat. I will post more info about this on Wednesday.

Take time for art today and see what haopens.
