July Smeared & Smudged Forum Members' Blog Hop - Bring on the Heat

Welcome to the Smeared & Smudged Forum Members' July Blog Hop! This month's theme is Bring on the Heat, and what could be hotter than a busty, beautiful Zombie? When ZPOC happens, she will be the new centerfold hottie, to be sure.

The image is one of the Zombie Babe images from Simply Betty Stamps, colored with my usual combo of Derwent Inktense pencils, Prismacolor pencils & Tombow Markers. I wanted her hair to look similar to flames. The background paper is DCWV's "Street Lace", accented with red/purple markers. She will join my bevy of beautiful zombies all framed 5X7 for Halloween/Samhain which is only 103 days away - YIKES! Thanks for hopping today & the blog roll is to your right ----> in my sidebar.

Maybe I should just take my marbles and go home...

It's time for my annual birthday rant. Well, I'm a little late as always. I've been a member of a group online for close to two years, and have been as active as my health & living situation would allow. And, for the second year in a row, with only one exception, not one other person wished me a happy birthday last week, despite the birthdays being on the home page & my thanking the lone individual on the chit chat part of the group. Honestly, I've never really felt a part of the core inside group, just a vibe I get from several of them. Rather than dwell on it, I've decided to do a challenge once in awhile and forget the rest of the group dynamics. Besides I've a lot to do in the next few weeks; with packing up this house, becoming single after 22 years, moving to a new place, becoming a grandma and all that entails. I really need to concentrate on the RL world, not the OL world.

Who knows, I may start a new blog all together...
