I didn't have a Nintendo 64, but I was fortunate enough to have friends that did! Such an awesome game!
There is nothing more true than this statement! I know that if I never took the chance I did over a year ago, I would not be where I am today. I am so proud of that major step I took to better myself. Sure I doubted the whole challenge, but I felt like I had no other choice. My health was on a steady decline and I didn't even have enough energy to be there with my family. I was always tired and made excuse after excuse of why I had no time to

In memory of a dear friend that I was fortunate enough to meet and get to know for as long as God allowed. <3
I didn't know that I needed to see the Doctor Who cast and crew performing '500 Miles' but it turns out I totally did. ^Agreed. This was EPIC!
ggariba: Hey guys, I’m fortunate enough to be a part of the “MeatBall Head” Art show curated by the awesome nicocolaleo in L.A. This one was fun, I rarely use line and have been having fun with it lately working on comics and planting Easter eggs in my pieces,would’ve liked to have planted more but eh, next time. Hope you like it. Unfortunately I won’t be there but my piece will- along with some other awesome artists who I work with( wscottforbes, halfglovepunch , perinm & shaburdies ) ...
I loved my Nintendo DS. While mine was also pink, it certainly didn't look this cute, but I used to play it quite a bit when I was in high school. It was a fun way for me to wind down and relax, and I had a lot of games that required brainpower, so I was learning at the same time.
I wish I would have had this when I was a student, so the family & friends who complained too much that I wasn't "putting in enough effort to make time for them" would maybe have understood just a wee bit!!!
Not that I have a bunch of pallets lying about (or any), but if I did, I'd make something awesome.
This my friends is amazing! Few months back my back was tight, burning and just hurt. I was walking bent over like a frail 90 year old! Searching for a remedy I came across this blend of oils. Once I rubbed it on my back it was a miracle! I could stand up straight! Now, this didn't take away the muscle ache but it took away the radiating pain that was shooting down my legs! I can't say enough about this mixture of oils! Want to know more? Contact me. *These statements haven't been FDA approved*

IT WAS TOUGH YESTERDAY--FIGHTING AGAIN OVER THE SAME DAMN ISSUE. BUT I DIDN'T CAPITULATE. ITS GONE ON FOR YEARS. I WAS FREE TO QUESTION HIM UNDER OATH--AS DID THE JUDGE. I TOOK A CHANCE--ONE I NEVER WOULD HAVE TAKEN BEFORE B/C I WAS TOO GOOD. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE REAL FREEDOM?--WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. YESTERDAY--THOUGH SCARED--I WAS FREE. AND I'M HERE TODAY TO WRITE ABOUT IT.
I just rewatched the trilogy for the first time since it came out. How did I forget how hot Viggo Mortensen is? Or how pissed I was that he didn't get with the blonde chick who killed the Witch King? (For real, she was such a better pick than Liv Tyler, she's an ELF)
This was my friends choice for our book club. I didn't think I would get into it but I did! One of the great things about a book club, you

Before Photoshop! They really did this stuff! ... MIA, by Ryan McGinley, 2010 “We had to basically rig a truss for this swing; it was a major production to make sure it was safe. I tried it out. MIA might have gotten there and said, ‘I’m not doing this; this is too crazy.’ But she got on and just started swinging like it was something normal. I remember her saying, ‘If I’m going to go out, this is an awesome way to go.’”
Fisher Price Play Family Sesame Street - I didn't have this, but I found an Ernie in the grass by a pond at a house my family was looking to buy back in the '70s. (We didn't buy the house, but I kept Ernie ... still have him!)
Pedal cars | A bit before my time but kids did seem to have pedal cars when I was young
creamy-strawberry-flan3 - I didn't use flan molds, I just used an 8x8 square pan, so it did end up taking longer to bake, but it was divine! Loved how creamy it was!
As much as it hurts to say this, I am realizing it is time to let go of some that I thought we would be friends for life. We have grown apart and doesn't seem like we are ever going to find the time to catch up or keep up with each other.. I wish you and your families the best. You were always such a great friend, moving was a hard decision but one I am glad I made.
Carraba's Dipping Oil - has WAY too much salt so I put half the amount It calls for, but when I did that the red pepper was a bit over powering so I'll have to tweak it a bit.
If you are fortunate enough to have a stairway like this, an exaggerated light can really add to the scale of the space.
For the kiddos
Did you know that you can publish classroom books for free through Studentreasures? They have such an awesome program for schools that I set up a page of class book resources on my website and even hosted a webinar about how to do the project! You can find more information on this page.
This is a Fan Art done for fans of the game. I had many requests to color the original black and white painting that I did last year. I decided to do a quick pass on the colored version and it ended up changing alot! The process didn't go too smoothly but I'm going to leave it off here. Thank you.
That would be an awesome bed for sisters/brothers or just for a child to have an extra bed for friends to sleep over. I would have loved that bed!
