bones, Christmas, 001

I know it's been a while, but the Muse just wasn't cooperating at all. Finally came back recently, and I've made a few new Bones wallpapers.



Preview under here. Spoilers for all seasons.Collapse )

All my Bones wallpapers can be found here. The music that inspired some of the art can be found on the “Resources” page.
Some HD caps courtesy of dj_capslock. Most are my own.
The quotes on some of the art came from either Bones Fans Online Transcripts or my own transcription of the TV show.

To all my Friends and Family...Happy Thanksgiving!!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize.
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving!

TryingKiss
My grandfather fought in WWI. My dad and father-in-law fought during WWII, one Army, one Navy. An uncle was career Air Force. Hubby helped keep the Russians on their side of the line during the 70s. His brother was a Marine. A cousin's husband was career Navy. My son served in Korea, very close to the DMZ. And now my nephew is in Afghanistan, keeping the terrorists from being able to score another 9-11, or something even worse.
So, yea, I know what Veteran's Day is about. We owe you more than we could ever repay, and I just want to say thanks. Little enough, I know, but heartfelt. God bless and keep all of you.

bones, Christmas, 001

I know I haven't been around much lately. Between my Dad's passing, making my garden, and visiting my daughter and grandsons in Colorado Springs for 3 weeks, I've been kinda busy. Also had to learn Wordpress so I could make my garden journal, then do all the art for that. The fanart muse just kinda went on an extended vacation, I guess, until...


About a week or so ago, I had Kenny Chesney's song "You Save Me" stuck in my head. For days, snippets just kept popping into my head. Couldn't get rid of it, even when I listened to it several times. Was watching some old Bones shows on my computer, and the muse just whacked me upside the head with a BIG cast iron skillet...Thus, this wallpaper was born.


I'd seen this tut and thought the style would work for what I was trying to convey.

You can watch Kenny's video here on CMT's site. If you want a Divx version (BIG file-166 mb), you can download it here.


So let me know what you think. Feel free to use, just don't claim it's yours.

week, BlueEyes
I know I haven't been around much since my Dad passed. My apologies, but I've been busy with making a garden - and a garden blog. Just when the work is mostly done but for the maintenance, I'm off to Colorado Springs for a couple weeks. My eldest daughter is graduating (with Honors, no less) with her Associates Degree in education. Her husband left her a couple years ago for some bimbo, so she's been raising her two boys with minimal support when he feels like sending it, working, and going to college. I couldn't be more proud of her for trying to make it on her own, and succeeding - so far.

It isn't the best time to be leaving a garden, but being there for her and seeing my grandsons after way too many years is probably just about the only thing that would get me going.

Besides, it will be nice to go someplace where they have decent, normal weather instead of near 100 degrees every da*m day, when it's only May, not July or August.The heat's been killing me, but I had to get the garden stuff I would have spread out over a few weeks done immediately, so I could leave.

I have been reading and looking, but too tired from being out in the heat to comment or post. Took some time to get over Dad's passing, too. It wasn't a surprise, but I still miss him quite a bit. I decided to do the garden thing to sort of carry on his legacy, in part. Used to garden alot, but let it go when it started to get too painful, and then living here, too hot. I guess the garden, and the garden blog, have been a kind of therapy to help me get over Dad's passing.

Anyway, if you're into gardening and interested, the blog is here. I'll be leaving Thursday, and get back June 5th or 6th. My daughter has no internet at home - can't afford it - but she does have a laptop with a wireless card. I'll check in if I can, but meanwhile...

see y'all later.

My dad passed on Dec 27. At least we were all there to say goodbye. It's been hectic since then, as you might imagine. I'll be going home on Jan 9.

TryingKiss
My dad has been in and out of hospital since October. He had to go back in yesterday, and it doesn't look good that he'll get out this time. Am flying up to NJ on Friday, so I will be pretty much MIA for a while. My sister has a computer, but don't know how much time I'll have to use it.

Anyway. I'll be checking in when I can, but meanwhile...
