From Mamma Crow and Me

"Don't hold on to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love"
"Leo Buscaglia"

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o) It's cool, crisp and snowy here. A beautiful day ;o) You may notice, I have been changing my blog around. Hope you like it ;o) The one thing I removed, was my fight for Mamma Crow button. ( I don't want those bad people having publicity on my blog anymore!) For some of my new readers, that don't know what I am talking about, here is the link.

Mom and I have decided to move on. We haven't given up the fight, but sometimes, when you hold on to things, they can make you sick inside and you stop living. We still truly believe, that when bad things happen, something good will come out of it. I don't know how, but that is what we feel. Karma will do her justice. Something will happen to these people and something good will happen to mom ;o)

Many of you keep in contact, asking if anything has happened. Well, we were told, since these people got away with it, that they will try it again, and if they did, to go along with it, so the police could catch them in the act. Well, in November, I came home and mom was sitting at the table crying. She was really shaken up. The pricks had phoned! Mom couldn't go through with it, she hung up the phone. She couldn't believe they phoned back so soon, in the same year.  I felt so bad for mom. She was upset, because maybe we lost our one chance, but I told her, things will work out, don't worry!

Mom and I want to thank you all for your prayers and positive energy!!! If anything happens, you all will be the first to know!!!
We want to wish you all a Very Happy Bright 2013, filled with love, good health, and prosperity! May all your dreams come true!
This is the new picture I put the side of my blog, sending out good energy to all of you! (Some of my special things I have around me, when I meditate.)

I will leave you with one special painting for the New Year ;o) This is the first painting I have called, "Magic Love Crow".

Big Hugs Everyone!!!! Keep on Smiling and Happy New Year!!!!!!

Dragon/Crow Painting In Smaller Size, Happy Mail

Hi Everyone ;o) I hope you're all being good ;o) Santa is almost here ;o)
I couldn't wait to show you my painting ;o) Remember the large 10 x 10 Dragon/Crow painting I did?

Well, as I said in a previous post, I was asked to do this painting in aceo size, ( 2.5" x 3.5"), by a friend of mine. I wasn't sure how much detail I could get into it, or if I could create the painting, looking the same way. Well, I have to say on thing, I am proud of myself ;o) What do you think?

I would like to send out a hug to Ann ;o) Ann, made me the cutest "Stacy Crow" ornament (the arms and legs move!). She also made me an aceo and another miniature ornament ;o) I love it all Ann ;o) Thank you ;o)

Big Hugs and Merry Christmas ;o)

Happy Yule, Merry Christmas

For those of you who don't know what Yule is, here is a little explanation ;o)

Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, the sun's "rebirth" is celebrated with much joy. This happens on December 21st ;o)

Mom's Christmas flowers ;o) I bought them for her today ;o) The lady at the store was making fun of me. She said my colors didn't go well together. I said, that's alright, , it's good to be different ;o) 

Mom will be baking her bread and cinnamon buns this weekend ;o) She hasn't been feeling well these past two weeks, so I am happy she is almost 100% ;o) 

I would like to give big hugs out to Karen Anne for my cute aceo and to Shelle for my adorable Kola card ;o)

I have all my cards displayed around my huge rose quartz ;o)

I don't think I will be posting much, till after Christmas, but I will be still coming around to your blogs;o) I want you all to know, you mean so much to me! I hope you all have a very blessed Christmas and Yule ;o) 

One more thing, before I leave, you, these beautiful images I have on my blog, are from Victoria's blog. Victoria puts the most magical posts together! I would recommend going over to see ;o) You will be happy you did ;o)

Big Hugs everyone ;o)

Sneak Peaks, Green Grass, Happy Mail

Hi Everyone ;o) I'm working on 4 paintings right now. I can only show you 3, because the 4th one is kind of a surprise. You will learn more about that later ;o)
Here are the first two ;o)

Remember the dragon painting I just finished? Well, I had a very good friend, ask me if I could recreate it in aceo size! This has been a challenge! I won't be able to get all of the detail in, but I am proud of what it is looking like so far ;o)

Well, I could be wrong, but I think this is the first time in my life, that we will be having a green Christmas. I really hope I am wrong! Where I live in Canada, I have never seen us without any snow, at this late in the year!

Looks like a spring day, eh?????

I would like to send out some big hugs ;o)
First one to Linda ;o) Linda made me a crow ornament and a beautiful stick pin! Love everything Linda! Thank you!

The second Big Hug goes out to NatashaMay ;o) NatashaMay sent me some really cute aceo's and a pretty print of one of her paintings ;o) Thanks so much!!

And thirdly, I would like to give hugs out to Kim ;o) I received the cutest cat card!! Thanks so much Kim! Mom and I love it!! ;o)

Have a great positive day everyone!!! Big Hugs ;o)

Dragon Painting, Baby Crow Aceo, Hugs Deb, Hugs Becca

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o) The sun was out again today ;o) I took some pictures of my dragon painting. So many names came to mind, when I was thinking about what to call this painting and then a name came to me last night in my dreams. I hope you like it. The reason I like it, is because it adds a touch of mystery to the painting. You really don't know what is going on. You can make your own story to what is happening. When I first showed this painting, all of you had different ideas, as to what was going on, and I really liked that! Make sure you tell me what you think of the name. Before I tell you what it is, let's look at the painting ;o)

"The Power Of Three" What do you think?

Next up, "First Date"

Now, I would like to send out a Big Hug out to Deb ;o) Deb sent me the cutest Christmas card and two of her aceo's! I love everything Deb! Thank you!!!

And, last, but certainly not least, I would like to send out a big hug to Becca ;o) I bought 3 of Becca's frozen pumpkins (Becca's art is quirky and fun!) and she gifted me with a little primitive crow, a tree and a magic mushroom ;o) I love everything so much! Thanks Becca!

But, wait, don't leave yet!!! Becca is having a giveaway of 2 of her frozen pumpkin ornaments! How exciting!!! See the picture below of what you can win ;o) Good luck everyone!!! Winner announced on the 15th, so get your little butts over there!!! ;o)

Big Hugs ;o)

Hugs Oma Linda, Laurie, Jan, Heather, Martha and A Squirrel

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope your day is going well ;o) It's nice and cool here, but, I can still see the grass!!!

I have a few people I would like to reach out and give a big hug too, so please make yourself at home, grab a hot chocolate and put some extra whipping cream on top. This is going to be a long post ;o)

First, I want to send big hugs out to Oma Linda ;o) She sent me a beautiful handmade card. My mom and I truly love it! My mom actually said, Stacy, we are keeping this card! It's very special ;o) And, I agree ;o)

Next, I would like to send big hugs out to Laurie ;o) Laurie, sent me a very cute card and an adorable female cardinal ornament! Love everything! Thanks so much Laurie ;o) My mom really loves this ornament, because she loves female cardinals ;o)

Now, I would like to send big hugs out to Jan ;o) Jan, made me a really cool Halloween brown lunch bag book ;o) It is filled with copies of her original poems and art! I love everything so much!

Jan, also sent me 3 crow feathers ;o) I took the picture with the 3 turkey feathers Robin gave me for my birthday ;o)

Now, I would like to send a big hug out to Heather ;o) At the beginning of the year, Heather said to me, Stacy, do you want to do a swap? I said sure and we both agreed there would be no time limit on this swap. I was happy about that and so was Heather. We just finished a couple of weeks ago ;o) Heather asked if I could paint something Autumn and a touch of witch ;o) I created these two pieces for her ;o)

For me, I told her I love Autumn, Witches, and Snow ;o) Heather sent me two beautiful crow pictures, she took and made them into postcards. I am not sending them away. I have framed them ;o) Then she made me the cutest rabbit. His name is Ralph and he loves to read Beatrice Pottery books ;o) I framed him too ;o)

Next Heather made me a beautiful large drawing. It's really cool, because Heather recycled a pizza box and did the drawing on the other side ;o) I haven't decided how I am going to display this yet ;o) Probably frame it too ;o) Make sure to look at the eyes ;o)

Now, I would like to give a big appreciation hug to Martha! Martha  always puts helpful hints on her blog. Well, last week, she posted about how to check how much usage you have used on your blog. Because when you go over the limit, you have to start paying. She said she has been posting for 7 years now and has only used like 1%. I have been posting for roughly only 3 years and I had used 68%! WOW! I new nothing about keeping your images "Small", "Pixels". So I have been going through everything! Resizing and deleting some things. I'm not done yet, but I'm down to 29%. If you didn't know anything about this, like me, please click on Martha's name. She will help you out. I'm so thankful I saw this post!

Are you still with me??? ;o)) Big Hugs to all of you! I will leave you with one of my squirrels ;o) Yes, I am still upset with all the stones, they took from me in the summer, but I still love them ;o) Here is one eating some feed we left for him ;o)

Have a great one! I will be around to your blogs soon! I know I am behind!!! ;o)
