Merry Christmas!

Well it’s finally Christmas day and the sun is shining with no chance for snow. I do believe that today does not feel like Christmas. Me and the girls will be heading over to my brothers here in a few to spend a couple hours with them. Then it’s back home to relax, watch movies, eat and possibly watch the sunset this evening. I must say that this year has been a good one, but it went by so fast. Everyday I struggle with lifes ups and downs, and today seems like a mixture of both. I miss being with all of my family this year. I thank the Lord for my dads health and my families closeness in all the hard times. I’m hoping for a fabulous year to come, filled with lots of joy and hopefully love. The girls had  a good Christmas and received a lot of gifts, and money to spend on anything. So I sit here updating my blog possibly the last until the new year. I go back to work on Monday, back to the mad house and some great friends. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Peace and Love for All!!!!


The Consumption of Christmas cont.

I have been looking at this piece for a couple of days and only added a few things here and there. I don’t want to Consume this piece with a lot of clutter so I think I am almost done. Just a few more additions and I will be done. Then it will be time to decide how I will present it.

Thanks for my followers. Hoping for another epiphany in 2012.

The Consumption of Christmas.

I awoke  this morning and had an idea of a very new and inspiring project. It is something that I have never done before but I am inspired by a very close friend of mine. His work is very different and indeed the basis for my new creation. Thank you in advance Patrick. 🙂 I can honestly say that Christmas has been so misconstrued and geared toward buying the right gift or the amount. This piece represents all the chaos and consumption that everyone gets wrapped up in. We all forget the whole purpose of Christmas and I myself get tangled up in all the material side effects of it. Not sure when I will be finished with it, it is a work in progress but I finally am able to feel free, and hoping to add more to this project in the future… Will post my progress.

December 2011

Harrika’s Brew Haus,  Backyard.

It is already December 2011 and this year is coming to an end. Yet, another year down and many more ahead. I can’t wrap my head around where this year has gone. I seem to be working so much that it has slipped by me way too fast. Christmas is upon us and I’m slowly getting into the spirit, but not as fast as usual. My kids are doing good in school, and they want everything under the sun for Christmas. We put up the tree last weekend and it looks nice. This year has been very good on me and my kids. I have a great job that yes keeps me very busy but grants me the opportunity to do more for my girls. My finances are finally getting better and hopefully in the next couple of months I can get out of this little apartment and get into a bigger place. I’m so thankful for all of my friends and family, all my new and old acquaintances. Life is what you make it, good or bad, but it is yours to do what you may.  Life is not perfect and neither are we, we can only hope to live, love, laugh and be the best person we can be. So my new years resolution will be to live my life each and every day like it were my last. Take chances, because without chances you’re not living. I hope to love with all of my heart and laugh till I cry. So there it is, what do you think?

Merry Christmas and God Bless!!!!!
