Cookie Points Up There...

I love spending time outdoors with my little bugs...

...what I don't love is seeing all the garbage people leave behind sometimes. As I'm walking my dogs I can't help noticing plastic bags, candy wrappers, an empty soda can...Pick it up! says a voice in my head...No way, gross! Why should I pick up somebody else's garbage?! 

An old book from an antique store in Wisconsin, loved the cover...If it looked like this, I'd be garbage hunting all day. But it doesn't...

I remember when Mikey and I used to go fishing and I used to pick up the empty beer cans, the fishing line and whatever else was left behind by other fishermen. It really bothers me. I can't enjoy nature with all that stuff lying around. And something else...Cookie points, remember?

A friend of mine loves birds. He talks to them and always has a cracker or some seeds for them...Why are you always feeding the birds? I asked. I like them... he said...besides, they're His creatures. I could use some cookie points up there...he smiled. Cookie points, huh?! I need some too!!

Cookie points for good deeds. I pull one of my empty bags out of my backpack and start filling it up with whatever trash I see on our walk...candy wrappers, soda cans...It's my time to shine! I use a clean poopy bag as a glove. I always have extra with me for Pig, he poops every 10 minutes. By the end of our walk my bag is almost full...Lots of cookie points today... :)

Poetry. Color. Shape. Art

Lovely little poem, supplies, new earrings, quotes I heart.


If you hold this 
Dazzling emerald
Up to the sky,

It will shine a billion 
Beautiful miracles

Painted from the tears
Of the Most High.

Plucked from the lush gardens
Of a yellowish-green paradise,

Look inside this hypnotic gem

And a kaleidoscope of
Sights and colors

Will tease and seduce
Your eyes and mind.

Tell me, sir.
Have you ever heard
A peacock sing?

Hold your ear
To this mystical stone

And you will hear

Sacred hymns flowing
To the vibrations
Of the perfumed

Blogger is acting up again. I can't seem to get these pictures to align with the text the way I want to ~ and I've been trying for two hours now ~ any tips, anyone? How do you make your blogs look so neat and organised, text right next to pictures and all...mine doesn't want to listen at all! Anyway, I made these earrings...

“Our universe grants every soul a twin, a reflection of themselvesthe kindred spirit . And no matter where they are or how far away they are from each other- even if they are in different dimensions, they will always find one another. This is destiny; this is love.” 
― Julie Dillon

Asymmetrical earrings are so much more interesting and captivating than the normal, symmetrical ones, IMHO. They're intriguing, daring and demand attention. Making them is like finding puzzle pieces that match and putting them together until you get a picture that pleases the eye and leaves your inner critic speechless...for a few moments. Until you start making something else.

"It can be somebody's and still be my own"

That's the beauty of it. You gift them, sell them, but they're still your own.

Are they little pieces of moon which want to fly..?”
