Hello and welcome to Important dates in March

Leave a comment

We start off on March 1st with AFWD 2019 aka Take your Action Figure to Work Day

Alex doesn’t want to be left out of the fun! 😉

We then segue into Mardi Gras on March 5 for those of us that like Fun! Beads optional! 🙂 

What happens after Fat Tuesday? why Ash Wednesday of Course! March 6th
For those that are about to start Lent, we feel for you! NO Meat Fridays, giving up something you really like for forty days! yes, I remember being forced to do that nonsense too! But it’s what you do for your faith! Remember!! Be nice to people!

And then it’s Mercury Retrograde 1st cycle of the year
Now depending on who you believe it starts on the fifth or the sixth! I’m going to go with the earlier date, better safe than sorry! lol 🙂

Remember Mercury is the God of Communication and most importantly try not to take things personally. They don’t really mean it. Some people will say offensive things and they don’t mean to, it’s just that their thinking is muddied and their communication skills are sub par right now. This won’t be forever only until March 28! for this cycle. oops 😛
PS- I’m not yelling, I swear! It’s just this is really important and so I used Caps lock. okay, I’ll take JiJi whapping me in the head with his tail, owies!!

Now for the important stuff!

BACK UP YOUR DATA! 

DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING BIG, FOR EXAMPLE, CARS, COMPUTERS, PHONES AND IF YOU DO, BE SURE TO TRIPLE CHECK ALL THE PAPERWORK AND ENSURE THAT THEY HAVE A WARRANTY! 

THIS CAN BE A STRESSFUL TIME, BUT TRY TO BE PATIENT AND HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR. NO ONE LIKES HAVING THINGS GO HAYWIRE. SPEAKING OF, IF YOU HAVE A PENDING TRIP, PLEASE DOUBLE-CHECK ANY INFORMATION YOU WERE GIVEN AND ENSURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE, TICKETS, PASSPORT, MONEY, CLOTHES, TOLIETRY ITEMS. YES, I’M SERIOUS! YOU REALLY WANT TO BE CAUGHT HALF-WAY AROUND THE WORLD WITHOUT YOUR SPECIAL MEDICATIONS, OR SOMETHING THAT YOU REALLY, REALLY NEED AND THE HOTEL CAN’T ARRANGE FOR IT. YEP, MERCURY RETROGRADE.

NOW FOR THE POSITIVE SIDE OF MERCURY RETROGRADE, I KNOW, SO FAR IT’S ALL BEEN NUTS! BUT IF YOU NEED TO TIE UP LOOSE ENDS ON PROJECTS, WARDROBE REORGANIZATION, HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS, WELL NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME TO FINISH THOSE!

And then on March 8th, it’s International Women’s Day
Re-read the above if you will be taking a trip for this most opportune day and weekend!

Looking back to my college days, like ten years ago. LOL 😀 I was to come up with a collage of my influences and that is representative of Me.  My influences: Rosie the Riveter- pretty self-explanatory I think. Gloria Steinem- I was a child of the ’70s and she told me I could do whatever I wanted! So yeah, had to have her in there. The Statue- I was looking for one of Pallas Athena-but couldn’t find a good one…so I ran across this one and I liked it. Reminds me of a woman running with a torch- to light the way! The Dancing Silhouettes those are my friends celebrating life! This was drawn by Sean O’Donnell and colored by Moi aka GroovyGoddess 😉

so many people hate this day! I love ❤ it!! Spring Forward and we get more daylight now!!
March 10th at 3am.

OMG we then have PI DAY 3/14

And the next day is the 15th the Ides of March which I remember as Cesear being killed, stabbed at the Senate. And that’s it. Apparently, there is other stuff too. So here’s a wiki link

And then it’s time to celebrate and get my Irish on! Oh right, Alex is helping here too!
March 17th Saint Patrick’s Day

And then Blessed Ostara Everyone on March 20th aka the Vernal Equinox

a very pretty Ostara altar, not mine but in case you need an example of what you could do!
I do have that Gaia statue from Oberon Zell 

And from Alex, Blessed Ostara and Happy International Earth Day

And that’s it for March, lots of fun holidays and other stuff too! I’ll be posting some more Alex art and action shots from #AFWD2019 (duh) and other holiday stuff too! Have a beautiful week! Happy Monday!

This years, AFWD2019!! lol 😀

Are you feeling the excitement, yet??

I haven’t been able to post as much engaging pix lately, work does come first and then I’ve got to sleep. I know, boring! But it’s the reality for me.

Anywho I had a few minutes tonight to work with the girlies! and this is what happened!

 

And Ms Kitty, Isis is the fluffiest kitty ever!

Awwwdorable!

I’m having so much fun & another app review too!

Leave a comment

I bought the apps bundled in this deal and yes, I think it’s worth it for 6.99 for both as each one separately is 4.99. The instructions were a little dry but very easy to understand. And I did this one on the iPhone in no time at all! the iPad app loaded onto my iPad without any help from me. Bonus! Sometimes I have to do a little push to get the apps to load onto my iPad. But again the interface is really easy, the layouts and the stickers, etcetera are really easy to use, re-size, and add your own text. I’m still futzing around with it to see what it else it can do, but so far, I really like!! And another example of what I can do! And this time I added Wonder Mite and her sidekick… I went for my middle of the night wake and stretching around the house, it’s too cold to go outside and do a stretching routine. I came back to find a note and Wonder Mite on my laptop along with her sidekick added a bit later. Patrick and the kitties are such the goofballs during the night. LOL JiJi tried to sneak off with Wonder Mite but I was able to catch him. He’s lying on his chair in my office right now. Oooh, I might do a comic strip artpiece with him. He’s very photogenic. =^.^= meow

#AFWD & an App review

Leave a comment

Hello and yes, I’m still preparing for #AFWD2019. I’ve been seeing all these cute photos on the timelines of Instagram and a few personal sites.  I spent a little over an hour trying to find the right app for me to use.

The Winner IS:

Strip Design 

The easiest to understand and easiest to use for what needs to be done, or what I WANT to do! That’s the criteria in my opinion, is it easy to use and does it do what I want it to do? If the answers are yes, then buy it! Strip Design is the undisputed winner and I paid 2.99 for it! It’s definitely worth the price and I guarantee I’ll be leaving a very positive review on the app store! Look at what I’ve created already! The example speaks volumes. 😉
***Also good to know, there is an iPad app. Not all apps are available for the iPhone and the iPad.  Photo taken with my iPhone and I used the iPad to do the comic page! I also used pic monkey app to add my ‘signature’ to the bottom.

 

Losers in my opinion aka very difficult APPS

Seriously, do NOT waste your time or money!! Both are difficult to use, the apps kept crashing and they don’t allow you to move the image to where you want it. So heads are cut off or completely out of the frame! *facepalm* 
However, these were the first two I saw, and they were quickly deleted also! So Please avoid both of these apps, save yourself the hairpulling and the stream of invectives! I will be leaving negative reviews on both of these apps!

Friday, March First!! 
It happens on the first Friday of March every year. And since my work day starts the night before at 9 o’clock, I work the third shift, I’ll be participating earlier than most. 😉

ya’ll ready for this? LOL, How does it work, well, if you have an action figure, you take it to work with you. I’ve posted past AFWD’s, and you can find one of those, HERE! I’ve participated in #AFWD2015, #AFWD2016, #AFWD2018. I missed 2017 because of work stuff- and work takes priority.  The link I shared above is from the first year and wow! I had a lot of photos that day. I hope to have quite a few this year as well. We’ll have to see.

I forgot to mention, you use the hashtag #AFWD2019 (this year) and post to social media, AFWD people are on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. You’re not the only one participating, and it’s really fun! I’ve had other’s pose with my Action figures in the past.

I’m all about having fun while working, remember to do your job too, that’s really important! But have a little bit of fun with it.  Tonight I took the logo and blew it up, and then used it for the background for Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl to pose with it! This year, Patrick has bought me the Wonder Girl action figure as a Blonde Amazon, needs a blonde Amazon action figure. 🙂 Wonder Woman will be along to show her the ropes! lol 😀

I know it’s not any time soon, but before you know it, it’ll be here! That’s #AFWD2019 Action Figure Work Day 2019! March 1st at where you are! Post your pix online and use that hashtag so we can see you and your Action Figure having a great time! Search the hashtag for social media for other’s posts too! And here is the Official Site for your perusal as well AFWD Enjoy!
