Make a Lens a Day from Lens 3 to 6

Lens 3 is about St. Patrick's Day. This lens I wrote is St. Patrick's Day on Zazzle Give your special someone that perfect customize St. Patrick's Day Zazzle gift. Zazzle product quality is top of the line. I know because I have brought some of these one of a kind gifts myself. March 17th is St. Patrick's Day. Feel the luck of the Irish in your brand new St. Patrick's Day t-shirt and hat. Tell someone that you care with the St. Patty's cards, mousepads, mugs, Keychains, buttons and more. These can be customized or you can ask me to make something just for you.

Lens 4 is about Improve Your Health and Well-Being. This is the lens that I wrote My Top 10 Healthful Choices
You don't need anything but the right foods and the right plan to achieve your perfect healthful balance This is the biggest money making scam in the world today: Companies selling you worthless supplements and fat burners with false promises.

Without the right nutritional principles and without the right foods, no supplement will have any effect on your body. It will just be a complete waste of money! This does not mean cutting out vitamin and mineral supplements. They do help with the right principles in healthy choices.

Lens 5: Children's Programming (pass)
Lens 6: Write about a simple product (pass)
I passed on lens 5, because I couldn't think of anything right away and needed to work on other thing.s I passed on lens 6, because I'm having some software issues. Took me all day to work on it. In between I was able to clean the house and walk the dog. Then late at night when I was finally on the internet, it really wasn't worth it.

Celebrate Artstreet in Green Bay, WI

This is the 2nd in the one a day lens for 30 days on the Get Cracking with Bonnie and Robin This assignment was to write about a local event.

The one thing about writing a lens a day is that I don't expect much traffic. But we will see.

Every year Green Bay Wisconsin has its annual art fair event which brings together artists to showcase their works for the public to see. It first started out at Bayfest on the University of Wisconsin Green Bay campus with a few booths set up. It is now held downtown taking over several blocks. Artstreet is more than is a celebration.

Let's Get Cracking Day One - My First Registered & Protected

Feb. 15, 2010 was the first day for Let's Get Cracking with Bonnie and Robin This is a challenge on Facebook to do a lens a day with the assignment handed out from Bonnie and Robin. I know I am crazy doing this. I am so far behind with everything else in my life and here I am participating.

The assignment for the first day is write about your "First". This lens I chose fit in with assignment #6 for Session 5 on travel and my first time to Mackinac Island. The pictures in my Zazzle shop are from our trip but without the watermark that is shown above. Here is the beginning of my lens. Everyone is welcome to sign the guestbook.

When I was five months pregnant and experiencing morning, noon and night sickness we traveled to Mackinac Island, Michigan for the first time. We had heard how beautiful this part of Michigan was and wanted to experience it ourselves. We crossed the Mackinac Bridge which spans approximately five miles across to Mackinac City where we stayed at a motel for three nights.

Forgetting to change our watches ahead one hour, we were too late for many activities going on that first evening. Read more at Mackinac Island, Michigan

Vote for Buddy in the Humane Society Photo Contest

"Buddy Boy"

My dog Buddy is in the Humane Society photo contest. He is the perfect candidate because he was a Humane Society dog. He chose us to be part of his family when he was 18 months old. Buddy had already been through two broken homes and was placed in the back. This is where sick and unmanageable pets were kept.

Buddy's problem was not with people. But with other dogs. According to his papers, the last place he was living at, they had two other dogs which did not get along with Buddy.

He has always been a great part of our family. Feb. 2, 2010, Buddy turned 56 years old. (That's 8 in big dog years.)

Vote for Buddy and help the Humane Society.

Do we ever outgrow coloring books?

My daughter is a college student and she is always asking for a coloring book. When she is at home we will color together. Coloring in these books give us a calming feeling. It takes the stress out of the day. Who cares if I will occasionally color outside of the lines!

My friend Summer has created some wonderful line art coloring books. This is not line art just for children but for adults too. Go to for over 300 Free Printable Coloring Pages. Then go to her store at for a large selection of downloadable coloring books.

The picture above is to her big e coloring book. 368 pages geared towards adults and older children. These pages contain nature, wildlife, pets, Christmas, Halloween and more. Reasonably priced at $6.00 USD.

Other line art ebooks are priced as low as $2.00 USD. All this is original art from the artist herself Summer Fey Foovay.
