Imagine... a movement inspired by the arts to open the eyes of Americans to the plight of their own people. Imagine, through art, music and poetry, we are shining a much needed light on our own crisis: HOMELESSNESS
Art4TheHomeless was once a blog called Colors of Ink with Blogcharm, which closed down. Nutang, became the new home of Colors of Ink and was renamed Art4TheHomeless, by a really good friend, Samantha Medd. She is now the Co-Founder of Art4TH.
Now Art4TH is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that unites artists of all venues to promote homeless awareness in the US.
Art4TH does this through the Art4TH Webzine, a monthly online magazine that features a musician whose music plays throughout the website, a feature artist, and a feature writer while also featuring a homeless relief organization. All artists featured retain their copyrights and all of it is free. If you would like to be a featured artist, musician, or writer contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I feel so great despite waking up with my nose stopped up. I got this cold when I slept on the cold hospital floor-the little chairs were so uncomfortable. Anyway, am treating it with benadryl, food, chocolate, and lots of paint.
The paint is going on this medicine cabinet that I found. Someone threw it out so I am fixing it up into a work of art and plan to donate it to Habitat for Humanity. I am sooo excited about this. I am painting it red and will have Japanese calligraphy on it--was going to go for Sanskrit, but people may be more comfortable with the familiar Asian theme for prosperity, love, hope, etc.
I started on it yesterday so I will spend my holiday with a paint brush in tow and ink stained fingertips.
I didn't get much for Christmas--an Obama tee from my friend Denise in Little 5 Points. My friend Melissa said she is sending me something in the mail and my coworker told me she was getting me something. I did get an email from Darude wishing me a merry Christmas right on Christmas morning :D : D He is my fave musician of all time. go to http://www.myspace.com/darude to see him
I was supposed to participate in the Secret Santa thing at work but had three back to back family emergencies I ran out of money. I did get to give Denise and Latay; a hair stylist in the same building with Denise, something for the holidays. I made a mirror for Latay and a heart shaped box for Denise. I get my check tomorrow if the boss is around to sign them. I will definitely put money on the phone bill, was going to get my moms meds because the doctor ordered a week's worth of them but we were just looking at them and she got a monthly worth instead--a Christmas gift from the hospital? Cool. She get's her disability around the third so that will get her meds and some rent. I can use the extra money from that to get Marta and head down to L5P to visit with Denise and check on my art down there.
I got my big Christmas wish--to see my mom healty and that's all that matters to me.
I want to thank each and every one of yall who commented and sent me well wishes and prayers. *hugs*
Merry Christmas!! I know I'm a little late.
