I wondered if there would be a difference in how Mary Jane looked after she had her fangs removed and a few other teeth. She does have a look on her face like she's raising one side of her lip at you.

There's no way I could ever look at Mary Jane and see anything but beauty.

I have a surprise for you. I offered 35% off until February 28th but, what if I said that I'd do 45% off one item on March 3rd? This isn't off the entire order like the 35% off sale, this is 45% off one item and for one day. Would that be okay with y'all?

Let's discuss the details of this too good to be true, probably not gonna see deep cuts until she's financially desperate again, sale.

Resilience Tree
Resilience Tree - available

Resilience Tree will remain at 35% off until the end of the month.

Snapshot - available

Snapshot is 35% off until the end of the month.

Oh but don't be discouraged, most other items are 45% off Friday March 3rd. Where's the art? It's here in the Available Art galleries with payment through PayPal and most of the art listed in my Etsy shop. The below gallery included some of my destash items.

Is she crazy, you ask? Yes, but only for a day. After one day everything returns to the original affordable art prices, and I will resettle somewhere between madness and organized dysfunction.

MaryJane16 is the coupon code to use March 3rd. It can't be used before or after that date *. Trust me, I'll remind you.

(read this really fast like on commercials when they're giving you the fine print) * International sales included. If you are unable to participate on these sale dates and need a payment arrangement please just use the email address on the sidebar so that we can include you. Please request your extension by February 28th. Remember, I asked for assistance with Mary Jane. I put the need out there, and my need has been filled. If you don't ask then both sales will be missed.


I'm going to do a copy paste from my Facebook page.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who contributed or purchased art. It's appreciated. I tell ya, it came on time bc my girl is in pain and I can't stand it. Man, it's hard to watch her suffer.

BTW - when there is a need that I see on the net please know that even if it's $2 or $4 I will, do and have donated. It's been done for me. I strongly believe that one should share their blessings, it makes them sweeter.

Thank you again for helping my girl Mary Jane continue her life with me in a pain-free way. I'd like to add that a friend of mine here in Indy asked why the cost was so low bc her aunts vet was so high, my requested need seemed odd. The blessing in that is, the vet isn't charging me for anything but a standard cleaning with blood work and proper anesthesia. He is not charging me for extractions (3 in the mouth of a 16 year old kitty).

Art is a huge part of what I do but it's not all I do. Here are photos of some of the things that keep me going. Some might call it an apartment but I see it as 650 sq feet of creative space.

I am very pleased to welcome to my home, an artist who I will meet for the first time in person. I'm anxious and excited. Actually, I'm a tad bit star struck. I will not supply photos but I will gush and be all thrilled to have her here. Since ya'll aren't comin' (that was terrible), I thought I'd give you a little peek into this world of mine.

These are some of the more than 20 rescued succulents from the grocery store purchased for $4.00. They will need time to get well rooted and start growing stronger.

I saw this art easel and on Amazon and put it on my wish list. I'd been thinking about it because some stuff is getting harder to accomplish in bed, and not just art. So, I put it on the list and swore to myself that the next time I make a sale I'd purchase the easel. Well, I posted that on Facebook and someone contacted me and said, hey, let me get that for you. I was all like, OMG! Of course I was going to accept but not for free...not for free. I traded an art piece for it which turned out to be a win-win situation.

I look forward to getting this soon. It's got so many incredible features.

I mentioned that I couldn't just accept it for free and wanted to barter for it. Ya know, a few days ago I removed the button on my sidebar for voluntary donations. I fretted over putting that up there but desperation took hold and I did. I had a cat in need of a few things, and I knew I was sitting in the middle of the month with less than $10 to my name. It took me until August to finish paying off last winter's heating bill so yeah, I was feeling a bit desperate, but..... man, I have a really hard time just flat out asking for stuff. I've done it before. When I absolutely needed something that would benefit my health I sucked it up and asked for it. I was very grateful to have it, too. I have a beautiful blue heated blanket to ease the pain in my legs. It's wonderful.

The lady with whom I bartered said to remember her when I become famous. She'll be disappointed because I have no desire to be famous. I'm shooting for comfortable. My comfortable may not be the same as others. Heck, I know how to shop and I know how to use my limited resources to get my needs met. Other times I have to reach out or others reach to me. That makes me smile.  ...continue reading
