Coming down from the high!

Well, talking about exposure {that I never saw coming!} I had well over 7,000 hits yesterday! And most everyone that commented was soooo nice! How in the heck they picked me – the world may never find out – but I’m soooo glad they did!

So much to tell you – first let’s start with this “anon” commenting – I did block that mess from this blog. After my “to the point” post yesterday to “anon”, some moron left a tacky comment on the finally home post. It actually went like this . . . .






I saw it immediately and deleted it- obviously! But then decided to put it in my post today. You may wonder why. I’ll tell you why . . . . to prove there are some really lame {and illiterate!} people out there! At first, I was really shocked. Why on earth would someone put that on my blog about my kid coming home from the hospital?? Of course this was after I did the post “to Anonymous” – so obviously they did it because they could. And I actually found myself later laughing at it!

Just a little note to this anonymous, “Hey Moron, I bet your parents are PROUD! Go to church – we’ll be praying for you.” This is the person {I’m sure} has no friends, has never been on a date, was ridiculed immensely growing up by the way he dressed{pure assumption Mr Moran is male,} tortures small animals, lives on the computer {since it’s the only way he can work up enough courage to talk to anyone} and blog hops in hopes to find someone he can be mean to without the threat of being beat up {like I’m sure he did in school!} What a Wanker!!

Anyhoodle, this brings me into another point – I want to clarify about another comment. I don’t want anyone to think I was being mean about this one! I did have someone make a comment about a color I used for a painting – and No, I didn’t take it personally. That is the beauty of it being hand-made and MY design! If a color is an issue – we can tweak it a small bit and make it work. I appreciate opinions such as hers. Without them, I would really limit myself. So, my new {and local} friend – “Thanks!”

On to other stuff – I literally boxed up 11 paintings {that should have went out last week!} But I did get side-tracked a little and I’m just getting back in the groove {only 1 week+} behind! I see some long nights and early mornings for me!! But I will get them done – I swear! For all those who have said January is fine to receive your order – Thank-you-so-very-much because I’m pretty sure that is when I will get to them! I’ve said it so much lately, but let me say it again . . . . I can’t believe how many people want my art! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Currently, I’m working on 9 of the “fa la la”s {because that is the payments I’ve received!} As soon as you pay, I will work yours into the mix! By the way, I’m only taking about 5 more orders – and then it is “retired”! I’m also working on – Sofia, Bagley, Parker & Gracie – Or atleast that is who is next in line! So, if you are one of these 4 and have not heard from me, be expecting an email from me any day now to talk! Sofia {should have been done by now – but with the past 2 weeks, uhmmm . . . well, . . . just didn’t happen!} is almost complete! I hope to “sneaky peeky” it in the next day or so!

I normally hate to tell my schedule – but I need the heat turned up! And if you know where you are on the list, well, . . . . let’s just say that I have to get you done in a timely manner {if you know what I mean!}

But for those who will be getting art this week . . . .

Are one of these yours?

Or this one?

Maybe one of these??

“H” is seemingly popular!

There are a few more – I just didn’t take any pictures! Remember I have the duct tape battery door on the camera and I’m not sure how long it’s going to make it!!!!!! So, I’m limiting pictures!

Which leads me into another something . . . . A faithful follower of this blog has sent me a wonderful monetary gift to purchase a camera! Oh, you read that right! And to be quite honest, I felt weird accepting it! I offered her paintings, but “no” she wouldn’t accept it! I would go clean her house or cook her family dinner {although they might die with my cooking skills – they rank with those picture taking skills!} – but she lives in Hawaii! My kids barely last on a 1 hour car ride! And the fact that Hawaii is much more than a “1 hour CAR ride!?” So, I’ve thought and thought about what to do {in honor of my new friend} – and I will pay it forward! I’ve got a few more post {3 or 4} to be exact before I hit the 300 marker. That will give me a few days to think about the specifics of this one – but I’m going to do a give-a-way – and we all love some give-a-ways! But there is a catch – WHOever WINS, has to pay it forward. We have to keep it going and what a better time of the year for it!!!!!

And before I forget – Sunday, Lonnie and I celebrated 6 years of marriage! Yeah, I know – amazing! Funny, I read last years post – and I swear if the same thing didn’t happen this year! Lonnie said sometime late afternoon, “Hey, happy anniversary!” We totally forgot! Late that night we played the game “if I had a hundred dollars, I’d buy you a ——.” But we started at a dollar, then $10, $100, $1,000, till we got to $100,000. We got to laughing so hard! For a buck – know my husband would buy me a root beer!!! But I would buy him a big honey bun from the gas station!!!

So, give-a-way in few days! Just want to get that out there now – so you all have plans to meet me here – on my blog!!!!

About Kim
I picked up a paint brush for the first time 7 years ago, and haven't put it down since. My goal - To paint a canvas for my son's nursery. I never dreamed a business would be born out of it. {And if you saw the first canvas, you would think the same thing, too!}

    I love your blog! I found it on “blogs of note” and decided to check it out. I’m glad I did. The situation you described about “anonymous” was humorous (I don’t mean it in a rude way) and the way you handeled it was awesome. I hope to read more of your blog soon.

    I just started blogging here, and your blog is the first I’ve read. You’re art work is awesome. I love that people can take simple things and turn them into a work of art. Also, congrats on your six years of marriage.

  17. Meredith says:

    Your art work is beautiful! I just now found you on Blogs of Note as I don’t look there everyday. And I would also never leave a horrid comment like anon. Some people just don’t know any better and I feel sorry for them.

  19. Everyday Explorer says:

    Aww, I wouldn’t waste another moment on a jerk who would make a comment like that. You obviously have lots of people who like what you’re doing and have a sense of decency here. Next time one of those trolls walks through your virtual door, I think you should just delete them with no further thought. They aren’t playing by any normal rules of etiquette, so I think you’re completely within your rights to ignore them as well. Good luck on your business – from one artist to another.

    I love your blog! I was wondering if I could follow it. I have a blog called Memoe’s Place. Congrats on being picked my blogger! Also, there is a blog called that I recommend. I wish that my blog had as many comments as yours does! Thank you very much.

  25. Daydreaming says:

    Anonymous cowards is more like it. Some individuals are just disgruntled and hateful and “misery always likes company.” I applaud you for posting the anonymous poster’s message to make the point that you did. Congratulations on your best blog designation! You have earned it. Like you, I blocked the Anonymous category from posting to my blog from day one. No need for us to entertain “comments from the peanut gallery,” as my parents often said. You keep right on enjoying your blogging hobby, and wishing you a very blessed Thanksgiving surrounded with loving memories, family and friends. Cheers!

    Ohhh, some people are stupid. They have no lives and inflict it on other people. Way to toss it right back at them–with class!

  28. masterymistery says:

    some people comment anonymously on their own posts to create an illusion of traffic.

    Love your art, and congrats on Blog of Note.

    Kim, Your art is unique, your sense of humor and blog is just as creative! It’s refreshing to hear someone that appears to be extremely genuine! Stay in your groove, it’s cool!


  32. Detective Dave says:

    Thanks for the read. I agree on the whole anon bullschmik, it seems the web is full of people who use to have to pull the wings off flys to get a jolly; but now can float in blogsville, crap on whoever and not have the courage to place their name on it. Congrats on the blogger fame, good pick.

  33. Ali says:

    Hi there, I found your blog when it was the Blog of Note. Every now and then a blog comes along that’s really interesting and well worth a read. Well done! And I particularly like your {} brackets (don’t know the right name), which I’m thinking of using myself.

  34. My Beautiful Mess! says:

    Okay – I just cannot get past the comment thing. That is really winding my clock because that is just…. horrible. Good grief what the heck is wrong with people. I can think of a very “special” sign you could paint for that person!!

  35. Morenci says:

    Congrats on all the hits (and deservedly so)!!!

    Ignore the creeps that taunt you. This comes with fame :)

    (lol, what a lengthy post)
    Yea, there’s alot of people out there on the internet who only exist to cause problems, I wouldn’t say they’re the demographic you’ve depicted (occasionally they’re just a child out for a laugh) but my advice don’t give them any attention (the spotlight is basically a trophy for their work).

    Aside from my advice, I just stumbled upon your blog thanks to Blogs of Note and I love it already, keep up the art ^_^.

  38. Christopher James says:

    I suppose that once you become a bit more celebrated on this site, you’re a bit more exposed to the morons that read it. The Anonymous blogger was probably some 10 year old that doesn’t understand yet the connection between a mother and her child. :P

  39. candiceschenk says:

    It’s hard to believe that people are that rude. If I go to someone’s blog and I don’t agree with them or what they post, I just move on. I would never think of post an ugly comment!!

    I love your blog and all your paintings! I am going to budget for one in the new year!! Keep up the grwat work!!
