The only way to have a friend is to be one

Thanks for all your sweet comments and wise words about friendships, your advice gave me lots to think about!  This weekend was nice and chill.  I hung out with friends, ate killer food, drank some, thrifted a little and even painted a bit.  I have been trying to do something either creative or physical every day, if I can do both I feel really awesome. Being creative and physically fit are life's best natural medicine~ that and rainbow colored frocks:)
  ok and Peetee:)
 who was digging in the dirt being such a dog.
The dress is a brand called Jam's World and they usually have the craziest prints and most vibrant colors, the fit is usually the problem for me, but with a sash I really like this dress.
 I was watching our resident crazy cat Ash.  Can you spot her?
Insane in the membrane!

I also wanted to show my latest doodlings.

I finished two more two but those are a surprise.  If feels so good to turn off the outside world and lose myself for a while.  Here are two other frocks that have me smiling each was $5.  More of those later:)

Remember friends if the sun ain't shining, it doesn't mean that you can't!

A blog post from you is the best medicine, you've always got some wise words, a sweet animal or two and a gorgeous outfit to drool over! That dress is beautiful, there's so much going on with it and your art rocks!
Glad the weekend was full of fun & creativity. Those new frocks, or at least the peek at them, is totally tantalising.
Here's to a much better new week!
Love you! xxxxxxxxx

What a lovely little dress, lots of colour, lots of pattern, and lots of twirling potential, perfect!
Peetee looks so adorable having a snuggle with his mama, and crazy Ash is a climber extraordinaire! She dares to go higher up in e trees than my cats do, the wusses!
How good to have a chilled, creative weekend, and I am intrigued by those little glimpses of your new frocks, can't wait to see them! xxxxx

I'm way behind with my blog reading, Krista, but I've just caught up with you now.

I'm so glad to hear you're feeling yourself again. Being creative is so empowering, and I am really impressed with your art. Looks like you've been having loads of fun lately - keep up the good work!
Love, Annie xxx

What an adorable KRISTA dress!! It's perfect for you!!
Glad to hear you're in a "better place" today!! It's amazing what a bit of outdoors and creativity can do for the soul!!

MrBill says Peetee needs to come to his house and dig in the fresh POO on the garden!!! It's a BUFFET of yummy cow turds plus the aroma is so tantalizing.

The Diva says none of them can come near her with their manure breath!!!

So glad you are feeling better. Those paintings are AWESOME! So bright and happy; love the butterflies. :D And that dress! That dress is so flippin' cute! You are so lovely!

Thank you so much for recommending Kiss Me Kitty leggings. I LOVE them! Eyeing the paisley. Look forward to ordering my first pair. :D XO

Your posts always cheer me right up! Love all that colour and that dress is you. Happy to hear that your weekend was one of fun and creative loveliness.

O, my sweet Krista! I've been a little behind, thanks to my wifi crapping out, and have just read your last post. Hmmm, sometimes you never, ever really know a person. I'm sorry to hear about this bit of nasty, but hope you've been able to shake it off a bit.
Pretty, rainbow, zingy bright frocks are the perfect antidote, as is cuddling your darling pookies, to heartbreak!
Ash is a funny girl, but Peetee more than makes up for her mentalness! My pookies are more interested in galloping outside in the rain right now than snuggling with Mama.Bastards!!!
Snogs to Peetee to pass onto you, lovely!!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Ooooooooh I'm making strange gargling noises in my throat at the sight of your GAWWWWWWWJUSS rainbow frock!! It's utterly delish, you look like the spring fairy sprinkling her sunshine on a chilly, overcast day. Ash up the tree - I have to show this to The Phoenix who is convinced our Lily is the only insane cat on the planet - loveyamorethancrazycats!!! So glad to hear you're enjoying quality time doing the things you love to do - and you do it so well:) xoxoxoxoxoxo

This is a great motivational post!!
I bought a pair of training shoes and I hope to go out soon for a run, but it's always raining, meanwhile I keep on painting and I'm glad you are doing the same!
The world needs our colours and your works make me happy as the sight of you and Peetee always do, you both look amazing and I really love the colours of your dress!
You wrote another great quote everyone should remember to shine even if it's raining!
I love you more than art!

You're never down for long! Drama is what keeps some people going, they love a bit discord. You have lots of stuff going on in your life, lots of energy, creativity and love to get out of your system and you prove that here.
Your art and the dress look so very Krista! Colourful, crazy, fun and free.
Please say you are coming to the UK again soon!

I worked in a clothing store that sold Jams World and no one ever wore it as good as you, Honey! Cuz you have the perfect amount of rainbow brightness to match!;)

Glad you had a good weekend-you needed it and looking forward to seeing those paintings!

And, those pics of Ash are giving me the same heart flutters I get when Elecktra goes way to far up a tree, makes a cat mama crazy with worry. Now, get down before ya give ya poor ol'modher a heart attack!;)
