Day Seventy five – Blue for Spondylitis

I’ve made it through 75 days today! I have to admit that I wouldn’t have made it this far without the encouragement and support of so many people.  As time goes on, I will be talking about how my support team and some new friends have kept me going.  I will fulfill my pledge and create my 365 days of apples and […]

Day Seventy two – Apple weave

When my parents arrive in Colorado from Maine, we have a food fest! My Dad may love food as much as I do but he has that metabolism that allows him to eat whatever he wants and as much of it as he wants.  Life in this regard is so unfair.  So when they visit, […]

Day Sixty nine – You’ve got Apple Mail!

I love to get emails and comments from people. It’s like Christmas – unexpected and deeply appreciated.  I’ve been meeting some wonderful people and I love what I’m doing here and I have a lot of apples to give away!  For people just finding my blog, I’m giving away most of the originals you see […]

Day Sixty eight – Spondyville Snowman

Happy Birthday to Michael from Spondyville! Michael was raising awareness for Spondylitis before I could pronounce Ankylosing Spondylitis!  For a fun way to learn about a horrible disease, please visit Spondyville – “the little town that time forgot but Spondylitis remembered!”  Spondyville has a mascot – Snowspondy travels the world for AS Awareness. With the combined […]

Day Fifty eight – Dash of this, some of that.

A dash of this and a hint of that  – and mix it all up.  Mixed media or collage are such a boring names for throwing it all together.  Maybe I’ll start calling mixed media pieces “everything but the kitchen sink” or “visual carnival” or perhaps more appropriately, “disparate madness” – ooh I like it! […]

Day Fifty seven – Tis the Season!

Today is the biggest shopping day of the year!  I’m not big on waiting in lines and fighting crowds so I stayed home today but I love the Holidays.  I love the decorations, the lights, the parties and the food.  I love to wrap up the presents and change out the colors I use each […]

Day Fifty six – Macy’s Day Parade

I am truly thankful for having such a wonderful husband!  Doug has been cooking up our dishes we’re taking to his Dad’s house shortly while I make my Art Apple – that’s love! My parents took us to the Macy’s Day Parade one year.  There are three things I clearly remember.  1.) My Dad lifting […]

Day Forty three – Don’t cage me in…

I’m a bit of a free spirit – my Mom is laughing now – she would never have qualified that statement with the adjective “bit”! I started thinking about this last year.  Last December I went back to corporate America.  I loved it – I did.  I loved the people I worked with, I loved […]

Day Forty one – Green Still Life

I could not decide what to create today.  So I procrastinated, and kept procrastinating.  Which led me to quite a bit of time late tonight watching paint dry – really very exciting. Isn’t it easier to put things off – at least while you’re putting them off – lol.  I’d love to find the time […]

Day Thirty five – Red Pastel

As I progress with my days of apples I’m finding more and more wonderful information about Ankylosing Spondylitis and Arthritis but what has really surprised me is to find the amazing people sharing their stories. I’d like to share some of their sites: United Voices for AS Spondyville AS Mom RA Guy This Luscious RA […]
