Cherry Cherub, 
Minuscule Mouse, and

Ah, a blank canvas ... more.
The section in the top right corner is entitled "Dark Side." 
The section in the middle, where I work, 
is entitled "Focus."

Close up when dry.

Contest Update

I bet you didn't even know I had a contest. Not your fault. We all know how up on things I always am.

So back in June (I think) I drew a name from the people who LIKED my official facebook page Vanessa V. Kilmer - Official (clever name, huh.)

Ryan won. Because he had to get off the interwebs for a while for a job, I couldn't let him know. I recently told him about his win and you can not imagine his excitement. Ryan, you may choose from one of the gifts shown in this photo.

There's a Phillies Mr. Potato Head or a Phillies leather sports bracelet or a Vampire Butterfly mug. Or you can have a blank, hand-made greeting card.

If you want to be in on July's drawing, LIKE my official facebook page Vanessa V. Kilmer - Official. For an added chance, subscribe to my monthly newsletter, Nessa's News (another clever name, I know.) You can sign up right there in the top right corner of my blog. 

UPDATE: The drawing is at 5pm EST on July 31, 2013. And Ryan chose the leather Phillies sports bracelet.

Flash 55 - ground zero

& : I spoke to Abbey earlier today.
# : Oh? Did she stop by?
& : No. I called her. I wanted to see if we could make other arrangements.
# : You don’t trust me!
& : You lied.
# : How could you check up on me? I am so embarrassed. I am never speaking to you again!
[See where it all went wrong?]

I planned and executed a going-away/wedding for 60 for my daughter, then immediately following, I helped her and her husband pack up all of their belongings and drove them 20 hours to FL, move into their new place, get settled, then the next day bring the truck and trailer 20 hours back to NJ with my daughter, followed by cooking and packing for my 82 year old father's family reunion in the mountains of PA. Yesterday, I sent my daughter back to her husband in FL along with my grandson. I haven't really been home in about 2 weeks. 
And then there's the broken hearts we are all suffering from due to a family estrangement. Please hope it is resolved before my parents, who are in their 80's, die from the grief.

is he who uses all the endowment he has, 
and uses it until he bleeds.
