About CricketDiane –

I’ve been creating nearly every day since I was a kid and that is over 50 years. I’ve created in numerous ways in a range that moves from art to problem-solving to inventing, creating music, sculpting and painting to writing and doing various computer / online based projects.

“It is better to make the effort to move forward and release the flow of ideas to work with them and do things creatively, create things and invent and write and make – I definitely know that by experience.” – cricketdiane, 2018

Little Donnie Dare Trump limericks for the Resistance – SecondCivilWarLetters 4th of July 2018

Tags

Little Donnie Dare

Grew up without a care,

He went to DC

To rattle a tree.

**

Then Donnie got there

They made fun of his hair,

They laughed at his wife

And made lots of strife.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Has never once played fair,

He thinks its a breeze

With no one to please.

**

Most days, Donnie Dare

Makes another nightmare,

He took all that he got

From those he made rot.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Never learned how to share,

He tells only lies

Accuses and spies.

**

It’s not Donnie Dare

Whose life will compare,

Since very bad things

Is all that it brings.

**

Never Donnie Dare

Will know how to care,

Never does he feel

The hurt of the deal.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Stole a very big Chair,

With ego and wit

He was a big twit.

**

Little Donnie Dare

With a smile and a glare,

Rode on the free press

To make such a mess.

**

When will Donnie Dare

Know shame and despair?

From ears to dead feet

He thought it was neat.

**

Little Donnie Dare

With pretty golden hair,

His ego and greed

Serve only his need.

**

Big man Donnie Dare

With butt cheeks au pair,

Believes all the praise

In hopes of their raise.

**

If asked, Donnie Dare

Says those are not rare,

That everyone loves

His vile, little shoves.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Loves his bleach blonde hair,

It goes with his tan

That’s never seen sand.

**

Lying Donnie Dare

Thinks people will not care,

Who all could have known

He’d make him a throne.

**

You’ll find Donnie Dare

In a president’s Chair,

But the chair he took,

Has everyone shook.

**

Because Donnie Dare

Stole every prayer,

That everyone had

Against something bad.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Now cruel as a bear,

Rightful King is he

Says his mind and deed.

**

Listen Donnie Dare

This nation is a share,

There’s no king spot here

We hold freedom dear.

**

Greedy Donnie Dare

We know you’re on a tear,

We are a nation

Who’ll change your station.

**

Big Man Donnie Dare

With cruelty to spare,

From up at the top

We forced him to stop.

**

And now Donnie Dare

Who mocked all our prayer,

Found out there’s a God

And trump it is not.

**

Little Donnie Dare

Became big man up there,

To DC, he went

Their money he spent.

**

Little Donnie Dareantitrump weapon of mass destitution 5a - cricketdiane 2018

 

Could not afford to care

Big Donnie neither

Lying, ranting tweeter.

Trump Anger Management Project

Fourth of July for #SecondCivilWar – sorry, bad twitter joke from the last couple days.

Added this effort today, been working on it several days, hand writing the notes and developing the project to paint one of my existing portraits that was commissioned but not accepted, from what it is now to a painting of trump and then destroy it in a creative way for a video. It is fundraising to support doing it, if you want to comment on whose face to put next to trump in the painting, or a creative way of destroying it – or give a few dollars to do it, check it out and take a moment to donate, share and comment.

Thanks,

CricketDiane

Why the rights of citizens are in jeopardy in the United States right now

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

The inherent value of human life, dignity and equality is a basic tenet of the foundations of the United States. It is the basis that freed the slaves, gave women the right to vote, to own property and manage their own affairs. It is the foundation of human rights being valued and respected.

Our nation has supported this tenet in its many forms since its inception and over time, supported its ideals and premise to include all Americans more completely.

That is, until now. The current group of elected leaders in many states and in our national elected seats do not have any viable reason to support this tenet, so they don’t.

In a tiny percentage of all possible voters and citizens, that few have been allowed to take hold of positions of decision-making that affect us all, and those few don’t support the basic values of equality, human dignity, human rights and the inherent value of every human life, especially our own citizen’s lives and well-being.

That is where we are now, with the decision-making in this nation resting in the hands of a small group of people who hold the lives of Americans and their well-being in contempt and derision, rather than in esteem and honor.

All of my life I wanted my own business

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

All of my life I’ve worked to have my own business that makes money and employs me so that I could have an income. All of the years spent doing it have been without the kinds of funding that would allow me to advertise, to do proper marketing, to have a real business location or studio space in which to sell my work, to display my products or to provide services in my field to the public.

And, for many years, I’ve believed that to make a business that could employ me was an honorable, good way to do things – and an American way to get things done. But, without real business funding underwriting the costs of getting traction in the marketplace – it is not happening in a profitable way for me and hasn’t despite my best efforts over a long period of time.

I had read a book long ago that said it was possible to put time and effort into making a business work and that it could work, even without a huge influx of proper funding. Now, I’m not so sure whether it was ever possible for that to work. The idea from that book was about putting a personal investment of small amounts of money, lots of time and lots of effort over a long period of time to build a business on a slight sloping upwards path ever onward, ever forward trajectory. It doesn’t seem to work that way having done it. And, it isn’t enough to work it while simply believing it could work nor enough to simply keep working at it.

As my competition can put facebook ads and a large budget for google adwords, do a variety of other marketing efforts including paying for help – my business cannot. I quickly run out of the adwords budget a few days into the month and then no hits or customers or views are happening thereafter. It doesn’t work.

How do I tell you what is happening? Does it ever work? Could it work? If I had the money to advertise properly would it work? If I had someone who makes their money by getting the licenses for the designs by commission, could it work? If I hired a marketing firm, could it work?

There are a few less than 25,000 products on my Zazzle CricketDiane store with my designs on them, but in total – there are over 86,000 – most of which cannot be seen on my store there any longer but are still in the marketplace as active links which can be bought if someone finds them on an affiliate site or on one of my social media pages or blogs. That encompasses several thousand designs across the entire spectrum of products from coffee mugs to tshirts, placemats and dishtowels, water bottles, key chains and gifts, posters and canvas art prints.

They do sell, but slowly and it takes a tremendous amount of time doing blogs, social media and creating new products, new designs and new artwork – and now videos, to be able to get the public to see them. Each month, I’m spending $60 a month on google adwords and within about the first ten days of the month, that budget is gone, leaving the rest of the month without coverage or advertising. It does bring buyers though and puts the gifts I’ve created in front of people at the time they are thinking about buying something and that is a good thing about it.
