XZ!$#@@xxxGRRR(&$^#%&&!!!!! cramps






See the bed in the back? Thats the baby's new bed. pooh sleeps in it too. I can fit my ass in it as well its so damn big. fkg A I have cramps. 3 advil and 2 hours later and its better thank goodness for drugs. Better living thru chemicals I always say. I am nearly finished with Lesson 2. (just ooh 6 more to go, and editing 4 videos yeeee haaaa!) but there is nothing you cant do, you know? If you put time into it.

I gots no wisdom right now. I blew it all on the class lesson. Im afraid I wont be much good to anyone until I finish all of this work. and you know for fun right now I think Im going to spend too much money on Dover books. I deserves it. Isn't it funny how I gussy up for my videos but I look all spent and worn for my blogger girls? Sort of like the lover who puts on high heels for work but at home wears sweatpants all the time. Im sorry I dont dress for you! I know you secretly dont care tho so thats why I dont. I know you are wearing sweats too.

artisticdiva said...

Yep, t-shirt covered in paint, uncombed hair, no makeup, that's me right now, so it's nice to know we can just let our inner selves shine and not hide behind all that other junk the rest of the world expects. Can't wait to see what you're working on now!

DeeDee said...

I am wearing sweats, how did you know?

I love seeing you just how you are. You are always beautiful. And you don't have to have words of wisdom all the time. Gives me a chance to get my two cents in (tee hee).

Sorry about the cramps. I used to have horrible cramps. I remember once wanting my boyfriend to take me to the hospital. Can you imagine!? how stupid I would have looked.
Menopause is great.

rafa said...

I dont gussy up for anyone. Well..except when I had to go to court because of the neighbors dogs.. but other than that..people dont like the way I look then they can look away. :D

Theresa said...

I didn't know I could be seen through the computer! How did you know I am wearing my formal wear...a paint stained t-shirt and cotton pull on shorts also adorned with paint spots.

All I need is my tiara and I will be ready for the ball.

I just got out of the shower so at least I smell good!

thismuseofmine said...

Oh, Suzi- I have cramps today too, so don't feel too bad, us girlies are all in the same boat, and some days we just have to sit here in our "grubbies". Don't appologize for being who you are because we love you that way!

Harvard tee shirt and pj bottoms here with no bra. Wheeeeee. Comfy. Glad you are too (except for the cramps - sorry about that).

sMacThoughts said...

That's why we love you, Suzi...you are like us! (Only more creative, more inspiring, and more fun to watch on the videos!)

Magenta said...

Hallelujah, no cramps for me anymore. Shit, I used to pass out with those.

Sweats, what sweats? Ain't got me anything that damn goood. I look like I sleep on the streets year round. For someone in pain and working so hard on lessons, you look frigin fantastic girlie.

Yay to all you sweat pant artists.

Cute bed for the kids.

rafa said...

Magenta said...

I'm awake, it's 11:47pm here in Vancouver, BC

Altered Queen said...

Suzi~I just found you a couple weeks ago, and think your art is absolutely amazing!! When will you have more kits for sale?! I would love to learn your techniques!! Thanks so much for sharing your incredible work.

Jessica said...

actually, i'm wearing old sleep shorts with care bears on them. too hot for sweats.

DeeDee said...

I'm wearing my 1977 prom dress in pink satin with my dyed to match ballet slippers (cause I was too tall to wear heels). ;)

Fleuri-anne said...

Cramps are the worst... I have em every month and every month I almost die out of pain, it's the worst pain I know! If I'm correct I'll have my period coming saturday, when I have to catch my plane to Barcelona... I'm sooo nervous that the cramps'll be SO bad so I'm gonna start with painkillers 2 days in advance, I know it's not the greatest thing to do but I don't care when it comes to cramps, I'm not gonna risk having terrible cramps on a frigging plane! Who knows what I might do, maybe even hijack the plane hahahaha! Oh and Suz, do you use a hot water bottle? If you don't, you should! It's the best, it helps me trough the pain a LOT!
Painkillers and hot water bottles are the BEST for cramps!! I hope you're ok sweetie, stay strong, it'll be over soon! And you don't have to dress up for us, we love you for you!
Lots of dutchieeee love,
Fleur!

Robyn said...

Ahhhhh ... retail therapy. It's good for all that ails you.

Daphna said...

Sorry about deleting my comment; I was trying to fix it.
Don't worry about getting gussied up. It's hard to be creative when you have to worry about how you look.

crzy-boss said...

Sweats Rock!!!

Lelainia N. Lloyd said...

Sweats or PJ's for me most of the time, even in the studio. I often work in my pj's-that's the joy of working at home. SOme days, if I am not going out, I even forget to brush my hair! {horrors!}

I also now wear "naked pants"-pants that are so light and comfy it feels like you don't even have pants ON!! *laughs*

Who cares what we wear?!? Aren't artists supposed to be free spirited and quirky? Might as well embrace it!

artistikitty said...

Cramps.....bad.

Horton Hears A Who drawstring pants and a tank top......good. I am all about comfort and simplicity. Dressing up is for funerals and weddings if one absolutely HAS TO!

You always look great Suzi...no sense "guilding the lily", right?

Lisa said...

I need to know where I sign up for the class???? I must not have been paying attention a few weeks back. Please let me know.

suzi blu said...

Fleur - what kind of painkillers? I dare not take any cause Im an addictive girl, candy pills and chocolate and girls and boys with a sexy smile are dAngerous for me. I can never stop myself from swallowing too much of good things.

Did I mention that for the class there will be pajama chats? Crowns are not required but encouraged.

I love not wearing a bra but I am right now cause I have a dad and a brother and it just feels weird not to. But when there are no dudes present I never ever wear one. i cant stand them.

Oh i have a secret to tell I have to tell someone!! Ok so you know I have a crush on the fictional character from the L word Shane...and that I date wolf boys and do not consider myself gay gay but a little gay WELL SO there is this girl at the pet groomer place OMG she just, I dont know, she has that shane vibe (god Im corny) pretty but not girly sexy but not self conscious, she has presence. Instantly I was overwhelmed. i think we connected. But I was with my mom (whos homophobic) and Im not even really gay so what the hell, ha. I have zero idea what to do now. poor Gigi cant have her hair cut every 2 weeks shes shaved as it is. hey maybe go back in for nail clippings? Im like one of those geeky stalker guys that will patronize a business just to talk to the cute girl that works there. creepy sue! ha.

Cramps are better. Im ready for a brand new day of class Love. I have pictures from a woman who finished her party girl kit and Im going to put them up when she writes a review. it is thrilling to see what other people do and shes added products to it Ive never even heard of so we all can learn some more.

oh and Im doing fabulous journaling for the images in the PDF's so Im obsessed with art journaling again. (yay!) I need to buy a scanner tonight so that I can get the best pictures taken of my work - also too, Im researching digital scrapbooking and you know what, its all stuff they scanned in to the computer, we all can do that. scan in real life things and use them as backdrops for our art journals, life books, etc.

ok thats enough.
happy sunday.

Bea said...

Somedays we just have to be in grubbies, pjs, or we just have to stay in bed. My hair is washed and that's about all I can say at the moment! It's too hot to get the makeup just right, put on the good clothes and go. Today I'm staying in because I worked in my flowerbed (I shouldn't have done that because of my shoulder injury) and I'm just sore all over. I like new bed for Gigi/Holly!

Scott said...

digital - scapbooking?

I love that idea!
layers, opacity, cropping, fill, shade, blend, clone, digital, digital, digital!

Not everyone can afford or, ahem, obtain a copy of Photoshop, so I'm thinking Paint.NET might be a compatible and free alternative.
http://www.getpaint.net
It supports layers, which is most important for digital scrapbooking.
:)

Gigi said...

Hi Suzi,
Happy Sunday right back at ya. Glad you are feeling better.
I love Gigi/Holly's new bed.
Wish I could be in my sweats, but I have to go to an early dinner today so I am dressed kinda like nice. UGH so uncomfortable its so humid out there today.
Lots of love and hugs to you and the babies:)

Fleuri-anne said...

I either use ibuprofen or Aleve but Aleve is my fav cause I use the special Menstrual Pain Relief one. The only thing I hate is the longer I'm using it, the less it's working, I now have to take a higher dosis to get the same painkilling effect as in the beginning and trust me, my cramps are so so soo bad, I need me a lottt of painkilling... But I don't really care, it's only 2 days a month and I seriously can't get trough that pain without painkillers, seriously, I think I would kill myself, it's soooo bad... My mum says I should see a doctor, but I don't know, little scared I guess...

Hahaha I COMPLETELY understand what you mean on Shane, Sue, she's the biggest girlcrush I've ever had, and I'm straight... She is sooo hot and sexxxyy, she has the confidence and the boyish look that maks me go ayayayayyyyyyy! I have a couple of gay girlfriends and there's one that has the same shane vibe, the same vibe I think you've seen on the pet groomer girl! It's something addicting and intrueging that I can't really describe but it are those girls that can kinda pull you over to the gay side, even if you're straight! Btw, I find it so funny that, for as far as I've seen, the (girl)gayworld is almost exactly like in the L word(I loooove that show), it's so funny and nice to see! I love that little world, it's sooo fascinating to see and know about! Go get those nails clipped and see the girl hun, let out your curiousity, explore!

I wish I could not wear a bra, unfortunately, my boobs are wayyy too big to do that, (yes I do find that unfortunate) I would get the worst backpain! :P

Sounds like you're doing good Suz, keep it up, can't wait for the classes to start! I'm happy to hear the cramps are better!

Lots of looove from verrry warm and sticky Holland,
Fleur!

Kris said...

Busted! I'm wearing sweatpants right now AND haven't brushed my hair today. lol All the better to paint with, right? :)

rachel goldstar said...

suzi,
yay for no bras! i despise them, but wear them when i have to (aka: in public).

your work is so inspiring and i adore watching your videos!

good luck with the PDFs! i hope i can afford to take the class!

dreaming of italy...
rachel

rafa said...

suzi,
creepy stalkerish love is the best love. as long as its not stalkerish in a im-going-to-smell-your-used-tissues-and-steal-your-underwear kinda way.

rafa said...

haha maybe sexi secret affair groomer girl watches the L word too? maybe she watches suzis videos on youtube? maybe.

1: dont bring your mom to the sexi groomer girl hideout
b: talk about doggie shampoo and somehow bring The L Word into the conversation
III: Get another hairy dog so you can go into groomer girl hideout more often

DeeDee said...

Who wouldn't have a crush on Shane? She is kind of a boy-girl which I think is why the pull on us usually straight girls.

Jenniwren said...

I keep my sweat pants for going out!!!!! pjs are my daily work at home creating stuff clothes! And they are paint splattered!
You are doing great Suzi,
hang in there!

happygirl? said...

As a fellow Major Cramp sufferer, I suggest Advil liguigels. They act fast and are pretty potent.

Cramps suck.
Hope they go away ASAP.

ps. it don't matta what ya wear, so long as it's comfy

Chandra Thomason said...

hi suzi! I have been reading your blog for a while but never left a comment till now. So sorry about your cramps...I don't have them anymore (I had a procedure!) but used to have them really bad so I feel for you. I am going to be taking your class and cannot wait! I am opening my Etsy store this week, and I wanted to thank you because you helped me get through my fear of sharing my artwork, and now the pendants I am putting on etsy have my own work in them, whereas before I was going to use scrapbook paper instead! so thanks again...and I think you should definitely go back to see the girl in the pet place...she would be so lucky to hook up with suzi... :)))

kittyism said...

Go Suzi... those Shane types... so yum.

Sitting here in gigantic ten year old ugly t-shirt and flip-flops. Only brushed my hair because I had to go to the store for a sec.

Wishing you a cramp free evening!

rafa said...

find shane in everyone!

sparkle said...

I just spent too much money on Dover books the other day. I highly recommend it. I got Sea Creatures, Anatomical Illustrations and Mythological Creatures. They all come with CD-roms.

I just discovered Photoshop has a feature that will let you paste up 1 image to fill a page in any size combination you want in about 5 minutes. I did not know this.

I printed out tons of pages of great images and schlepped them and a bunch of art supplies down to the beach for a collage-a-thon out on the deck with my girlfriend. We had a fabulous time. She was shrieking with glee!

All inspired by you, Suzi Blu!

DeeDee said...

Hi Sparkle. Please share the feature you discovered in Photoshop. It sounds great.
