The Mouse Here


Hi! I have so much to share. Please bear with me as I find my niche. Should I only blog about my journey as an artist? Shall my entries be an art journal? Shall they be random thoughts and realizations about life and the journey that Mark wrote about in the earlier post? livingfunlovinglife our way of sharing our journey with the world. We have met many people who appear to be going through life robotic-ally and without passion. We aim to inspire and motivate others to not only pursue the passion that they already have, but to also spark something that has seemingly been lying dormant for others. Now Mark, …ehem.. I mean Lyon, believes that we as a couple are entertaining and that we will soon have a following of folks who tune in to our escapades just for the purpose of living vicariously through us or perhaps more likely, to have a good laugh. Oh the pressure of it all! That makes me self-conscious. Am I being funny yet?  Ahhh!  I have to set my mind straight. I have to just be and begin. So I will start with an art journal of sorts. Currently I am working with polymer clay and paper clay. These are both relatively new materials for me. Also, I am working on very small projects which is also a new scale to me. So, I feel as though I am born again as an artist. Just learning to sit up and crawl. I feel great about it though! What an exciting place to be! I know that my past experiences and muscle memory will enable me to eclipse the learning curve rapidly and that within a few months MouseSculpts  ( the name of my studio ) will have a portfolio that showcases my great talent and style! ( That’s my affirmation 😀 ) When that happens I will  dedicate a page on this site for my creations and studio. I will also have an Etsy shop, and will upload images of my work on  among other places. So be on the lookout! In the meantime you can follow our blog and see the many journal entries I make about my process and other hoo-ha!

Well, Here We Are


The missus and I are finally, thankfully, JOYFULLY learning how to use this blog site.  So, please bear with us as we embark on a journey that has been a long time coming.  For those of you who have been following us on Twitter; and those of you who have friended us on FB or have expressed an interest in learning more about what it is we do . . . here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for.

Like the song says “We’re comin’ out . . . we want the world to know, got to let it show”.

Today is the twelfth day of February in the two thousand and twelfth year of our Lord, and we are excited to be here.  As are all of you we’re sure.  Consider all it took for you to make it to this point, to this very moment in space and time. All the odds you had to face, all the obstacles you had to overcome, and all the $^%*&*  you had to go through to get here . . . whew, thankfully you made it.

To those of you out there in the blogosphere who are clamoring for a website.  Coming soon.  For now, lets take the time to get to know each other a little better.  Share your thoughts with us about the issues of the day.  Spread the word about  a good restaurant you visited or a great movie or television show you recently watched (we prefer comedies).  Tell us about a self improvement course you’ve taken, or a great book you may have read.  Our inquiring minds want to know.

Oh yeah, by the way we are the Mouse and The Lyon and we are livingfunandlovinglife every day every night now and forever, and we approve this message.
