Making Deco Mesh Wreaths for the holidays (gift ideas)

The first picture is a foam tree decorated with buttons held by sewing pins. I found this craft on Pinterest as a holiday activity to decorate with or gift. I also used pinterest to get ideas for the wreaths as well.
Over the last couple of days I have made five wreaths that I wanted to show you. Some of these I will be giving away as gifts for family members. I am keeping the wreath I am holding in the picture, and the last one I am donating for a charity auction.

Some interesting drawings of characters, scenes, & still life from 2013-2015

I was looking through some of my sketch books from 2013 and 2014, and I wanted to share some of the drawings I found. I know I have posted probably all of these drawings on here or on my deviantart page, but these drawings stood out to me the most. One particularly stood out to me of the drawings of Trailer Park Boys TV Show characters because this week one of the people died. The drawing of an old man's head in this picture, known as Jim Lahey, has passed.

Two more Fall halloween Paintings by Cassie Kinney



Here are additional paintings I've done this week. There are similar elements in the two paintings, with the witchy house, fall plants, and bats. The first painting has pathway leading to a house lined with birch trees of yellowing leaves. There are pumpkins, cushaws, mums. The second painting has a creek flowing past a house in the forest, washing through big rocks and plants.

Halloween scene with pumpkins, gourds, scarecrow decor


I took my grandma to see mums, pumpkins, and gourds, so we bought some things and I put this scene together for my grandmother.

Two Fall Autumn Witchy Garden shed acrylic paintings (FOR SALE)

I started painting again as you may have noticed. The painting I posted on here the other day of the pumpkins was sold on ebay. I'm a little frustrated because I want to be able to sale art, and in doing so you have to cheapen your worth (value). I learned my lesson though selling on ebay because of the cost of shipping with paintings is pricey! I sold that painting with free shipping and it ended up costing the exact amount that I sold for the painting. I actually went in the hole with the painting when factoring in that I had to drive over 15 miles to get to a post office!

So I hope you understand why I am selling the paintings at the price I am on ebay. Two paintings that I am showing you down below are also for sale on ebay. Go to my account and view all the paintings I am selling here: My ebay store.



The sign on the door of the shed says 'welcome'

Hisbiscus floral photography + fall pumpkin scarecrow scene setting

I usually take pictures of my grandma's Hibiscus flowers, but I got a start off one of her Hibiscus plants that broke off, and within a couple of months it has already flowered.



And you know by now that I love sunsets, and I got to take a picture of beautiful pink and purple skies.


Here is the fall scene I rearranged as well. I continue to add more stuff to the fall scene. Soon it will become a Halloween scene come October.

War business & suppressing revolutions

"The sudden collapse of the Soviet Union left the political leadership of the United States unprepared. Military interventions had been undertaken in Korea and Vietnam with enormous loss of life, also in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and huge amounts of military aid had been given all over the world--in Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia--on the supposition that this was necessary to deal with a Communist menace emanating from the Soviet Union. Several trillion dollars had been taken from American citizens in the form of taxes to maintain a huge nuclear and nonnuclear arsenal and military bases all over the world--all primarily justified by the "Soviet threat."
According to Polifact, "the U.S. has 662 overseas bases in 38 foreign countries, which is a smaller number than the 900 bases Paul cited." And according to CounterCurrents.org, the United States has ,invaded approximately 70 countries as of June 2014. A few of the invaded countries were Kuwait, Panama, and Cuba.

"The fear of 'independent nationalism' was that this would jeopardize powerful American economic interests. Revolutions in Nicaragua or Cuba or El Salvador or Chile were threats to United Fruit, Anaconda Copper, International Telephone and Telegraph, and others."

Get rid of rich people

I wish the media showed how poor people lived rather than showing us how rich people live everyday. Here you have people with TVs, computers, and iPhones that constantly run images of wealth. So now we have a society that wants rich things rather than being pissed off for poor people that have no things. Rich people and middle class people have no idea how poor people live because the media doesn't want to show you that capitalism is working for the rich but it is destroying poor people's lives.

Reading a MSN article, shared that Mike Meyers from the Gong Show is making $2 million an episode. Ryan Seacrest, Conan, Anderson Cooper, all make $12 million per year on their shows! That amount of money is despicable for any one person. It's too much for them, and this should piss people off. But no, people love these assholes that make too much money for no amount of hard labor or actual thinking. And lets be clear, these men are owned by other white men that are making more money off of them. And now you have an industrial world made up of mostly working and nonworking poor that are watching rich peoples' lives that they know and love.

The capitalist media doesn't want the masses to see that poor people live in dangerous dwellings, have no access to clean water or good food. Let me tell you about poor people's houses: with big families, there isn't enough room for the kids to have their own room. They have to sleep on the floors with their siblings. There's mold on the ceilings, walls, and floors. There's holes that snakes and other critters get through and live in the house with children. The floors sink in corners because the poorly constructed house is giving away to heavy furniture or other things. This isn't the life of all poor people, but this was mine.

Get rid of these people on TV and off TV, because they don't represent anybody. Get rid of these rich people out of politics, and lets take it all back!

Hands down, the best song is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

I like a lot of different kinds of music, and I love so many artists and songs from different genres, but for some reason Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen always made me feel like it was a story for the ages, and it was a story that explained the pain of living.


Right now, I believe the only thing that is important is family

Right now, I believe the only thing that is important is family. I went to my great grandmother's funeral today. Her visitation was yesterday, and I didn't feel sad for her--I was sad for my own grandmother because she was watching her mother die, watched her pass, and then watched her to be taken underground for burial. I was not sad for great grandma. I was sad for my grandma--that I held through the visitation and the funeral. I will probably hold her many more times because she is crying out of that sorrow. I was crying for my grandma that deeply felt the loss of her mother. It made me feel what could be the loss of my own mother. How could you live nearly 70 years knowing your mother, and let her go? How deeply does that pain go? In the future I will endure that feeling...who knows when...
