SUPPLIES
As etsy is a recommendation, recently "houseoftheredmug " opened March 17, 2017 and the Shop Team "ReuseaBle" had 6 team members, and now 9 members. A team member sent me her photograph of her light fixture craft from transformed reuseable plastic milk jugs which are astonishing. Back in Canada, I often walked down the lane behind the Return Depot to view the graffiti and enjoy the used and abandoned train tracks. During my last spring in Canada 2016, I gathered up many empty milk jugs dumped along the lane to bring with me to claim along with the empties I was returning that day. The familiar Return Depot staff member said no deposit is payable but that I could leave the empty plastic milk jugs for recycling. Disappointed I agreed but felt that there is some value somewhere to the jugs. The empty milk jugs are craft supplies with potential sales value to the craftsman.  Maulo

The Irish Immigrant Of 1922
The Irish Immigrant Of 1922
Starvation in Northern Ireland with the potato famine from blight created my Canadian identity. I am Irish. The argument has been argued with my British Irish cousin as no one has to apply to be Irish if a parent is born in Ireland because you are just Irish. The
Victorian law prevented my grandfather from inheriting any portion of the farm and thus left Northern Ireland with his wife, daughter and unborn child on a passenger ship to North America . They brought with them belongings to create their new Irish home in Saskatchewan . My grandfather never returned to Ireland but my grandmother and mother returned. My mother would have preferred to return to Northern Ireland to live out her life but my planning was not effective. Discussing living in the south of Ireland, the Irish Republic was even a possibility. Losing trust and faith in our Canadian community had developed into enough reasons to have the desire to enjoy being Irish again. In talking to my mum

YARN
YARN
Buying yarn is not a purchase to share without attracting some impression. While making a difficult afghan pattern, I shared my pattern and craft. Some friends would have considered the high costs of eight dollars for an extra large ball from Walmart extravagant. The Walmart clerk might have been curious or thoughtful but never would know about my project .
Finally the finished afghan is admired by a serious knitter , my Mom, who said she never could have completed a pattern of circles inside squares, like granny squares. The neighbor, also shown the afghan did not approve of the living room location for the craft and suggested my bed would be a much more thoughtful location which is where the afghan ended up as fear causes us to believe.Daily Prompt #yarn #dailyprompt

A Story About PuzzleOurTurtle
The first order for Custom T-shirt started over one month ago in March. The order for the design in baby and toddler sizes was canceled because Zazzle said the image was damaged and only a picture of a Tshirt . The confusion had to be resolved by the Designer after Zazzle sent a letter accusing the collaborater of the stencil with using an image belonging to someone else and asked if he had copyright permission. Zazzle sent a letter of apology to the Collaborater of the design and offered 50% off the new order as the order as canceled . The Designer is trying to buy the
" PuzzleourTurtle " fantasy character in Custom T-shirt for my granddaughter who has her first appearance in the Houseoftheredmug Etsy Shop as
" Lilly So Sagebrush" . The first try of the new order discovered that the $10 coupon had been lost awarded to the Designer for one year of the FilthydirtybuttonArt Shop in zazzle.com. A new letter was written to Zazzle Help with the complaint and the $10 coupon was returned. My

Tulips  are  a Mother's Day gift.
My Easter Bonnet
My father  would give me a new hat for Easter,  
which I  wore to Church when  less than  12 years old.  
The last hat was  like a powder blue bowl with  powder blue flowers.  
I was invited to Dad's office where he opened  
a large cardboard box the hat had arrived in.

Celebrating Star Wars Day
This year, on May the 4th, DeviantArt wants to pay tribute to all the amazing artists who continue to produce inspired works as dedicated fans to honor the Star Wars characters and iconic scenes we know and love… and even the ones that cause the hate to flow through us. From strapping Han Solo to laughing Salacious Crumb, from Jar Jar’s clumsiness to K-2

home is where you are
Ours was a new world, one mostly unexplored and it was thrilling to be one of its first human inhabitants. There was dense jungle, tangles of trees growing unchecked, vines running rampant and intertwining, growing in delicate spires up passed the treetops. The water was clean and abundant, we knew then we could live here, thrive here.
and then there was you
your moonlight smiles in the night
you made this world home

Anxiety
Anxiety.
This is my disease.
Indexed from A to Z.
Everything that slowly kills me.
Organised chaos,
as the winter rain runs down my skin.
A symphony of emotions,
coursing through my veins;
crippling all the love that I hold within.
Consciousness soothed,
by candle-light and flame,
not a worry to feed,
as I am momentarily tame.
Anxious words,
stuttered and stunted,
spoken like a warrior,
aware he's being hunted.
Serenity lies beneath the waves.
A solitude fortress awaits,
at the end of my days.
Anxiety no more.
Soon to be extinct.
Soon;
to be rid of your deceptive ways.
Soon;
clearly I shall, be able think.

SWAMPED

I know i've been gone for a while. Feels like forever. I'm not even really coming "back" per se, i'm just checking in to make sure the place hasn't burned down while i was away. *METAPHORICALLY*. But it has. A lot of you are probably upset that I haven't been able to give you your features or points on time. The last thing I want is for people to think I just took their points and run off with them- I haven't even logged in for three months. . I'm sorry. I'm going to try to get through all of this as quickly as I can, but as you can see it may take a while. 
Happy belated Valentines' day everyone.

Having an Online Presence
"All artists need to have an online presence," I said.
"Easy for you to say, Popular Artist
," they said.
"I had to work hard to get 'popular'," I said
"But it's SOOO hhaaaaAAARD," they said
"That's what I just said," I said.
    After making my status posts about making an online presence, I figured I'd make a sort of guide. I made a very generic list of things you should do as an artist who wants to get their name out there or "get popular". A lot of people were like, "but I've done all of that". But chances are, you haven't. There's a lot that goes into this and it takes a long ass time. Don't think it's just gonna happen in a month.
    So I made a guide based on my own experience and what worked for me (as an illustrator/artist. Some of these tips are more specific than others and some of these will not necessarily work for you. Everyone's different. Keep in mind this is mostly for illustrators/animators/story artists etc. This won't work fo

Arthritis
Day 1
There is a white, powdery substance in my food this morning. I wonder if this is only the first time I have noticed it and if Master has been poisoning my breakfast with this concoction for months. It could explain the now constant ache in my bones that I did not feel last winter. Or perhaps this is the work of Master's small minions, which he and his housemaid call "the children". Those pesky creatures that look like miniature humans but continue to grow in size (rounder in the case of the male minion) through the years. I've yet to find the machine that created these demonic minions but I grow more and more convinced that they are the cause for this suspicious turn of events.
My growling stomach betrays me and I nose around the white powder, careful to eat only the unblemished pieces of meaty delight. I feel a presence behind me and my hair stands on end. I turn my face to see the housemaid watching me with a frustrated expression on her face
