~* Got Japanese? *~

And No, for a change I do not mean Sushi! Although I do love Awesome Sushi! Last year some time I took a trip over to The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, which is HEAVEN for an Altered Artist like myself! I find those most wonderful and unusual things there. If you live in the Bay Area and have not visited, I suggest you do. I find more than just Art supplies, but that will be saved for a later post. Hint: Think Home Decor! Anyway, back to Japanese! I found these Beautiful little bottles of Color!

I have no idea what they are used for, as I do not speak or read Japanese. However, I thought they might be useful...don't ask me how...yet! I think I paid 10 Cents for each bottle! I think they are ink or for silk screening, as they colors says..Silk Violet, Silk Green, Silk Red and Silk Burnt Umber. The two without any wrapping on the I am assuming to be a Blue and Lighter Brown color because of the labels. Can anyone tell me what they are and what they are used for?? Or maybe I should just take them in with me next time I go have Sushi? Hmmm....that sounds good for Lunch! Care to join me?

~* First Day of School *~

Today was the first day of my daughter's Junior High School year. Wow! I can not believe I have a daughter that is a Junior in High School! Where did the time go? Simpler times when I could do her hair and she was not worried about the latest cool label on her jeans! Some time during the wee hours I crept into her room and grabbed her mirror. I wanted to start her first day off with an inspirational message and lovingly wrote the following:

You are a Smart, Beautiful & Strong young woman! I believe in you, it is time for you to start believing in yourself! You can do anything you set your mind to. Start Dreaming BIG!!! Have a Wonderful Year! I Love You! Mom

I cried a bit after I wrote it. Realizing my baby is not a baby anymore, which I do every first day of school, every Birthday and every Christmas!

Every year since she has started school, we have gone to lunch on the first day of school. Today, I was really excited to take her to lunch. She walked in the door with a friend and asked if she could go to lunch with friends. Sigh...Where did the time go?
