Good Morning and Happy Thursday and a big WELCOME to SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM Members' May  BLOG HOP.

The theme is CONFESSIONS - SMEARED IN INK. With this month's Mother's Day celebration, we thought it would be fun to have a few confessions from our Members.
So, we were challenged to use our art to show something that we had never told our MuM about ourself or something we had done.
My MuM passed away 5 years ago,  so there is no chance of her ever seeing this - not that I think she would have been surprised at what I did in my spare time a few years back now .... snort  !!!!

For my little audience I have used a collection of 'Grumpies' from Smeared Ink of course :-D I duplicated them a coupla times so I could paste them in rows. This is a digital piece since I am still unable to craft.  The frame is made up of bats from the 'Little Bit Batty' set, also from Smeared Ink.


So - there you have it. !! Definitely a sign of a semi mis-spent youth... but it was fun and the money was cool :-D     Now,  I am the last on the Hop list, but if you missed any or got lost along the way... here is the list, so why not hop away and see what my other Forum Sistahs got up to in their murky pasts, or what dark steamy secrets they have been hiding  :-D Tee Hee.

  2. Oh Ike...this is so lovely. I just have to tell you a quick story. I came from FL to a Texas Scrap Rally a few years ago & they brought a pole & put it up. There were so many of the scrappers there learning how to pole dance. It is great exercise & they accidentally put a hole in the ceiling & I don't know if they ended up having to pay for it or not but I guess now you know that us TX women are wild! LOL (I'm too fat to get on that pole but it looked so fun!)

  4. well cant say that I can relate to that one. at least in front of anyone but my ol man and we've been together for 19 years now. Hell I wouldnt let him turn the light on for the first 5 years. I'm not fat either just very modest I guess. My granny always told everyone she couldnt figure out how I got knocked up cause I was so modest. Well granny it was dark. hahaha. I have a few dancer friends and I love what they do and wish I could have too. I think it's awesome.
    I'll tell you something my grandpa used to always tell me
    "Girl your sitting on a goldmine, you shouldnt be broke"
    hahahah

  7. Love this piece! You are rocking the digital world, woman! Hope you're healing up well & soon. Am certain the money was good and at least stripping is legal, plus you didn't have to hook up unless you wanted to . As a condom-carrying ex-hooker, there were just smattering of men that I liked being with, but it was lucrative, the hours short, and I could buy lots of pretty things to forget LOL. Thanks for sharing with us. hugs, Di

  13. I knew you'd have a good confession! Haha....what I wouldn't give to sit with you for a couple of hours (of days) and hear all the experiences you've had. Love the silhouette and that you used the Li'l Grumpies for the crowd! I so glad you got to join us and hope your mending thumb is starting to feel better!
