Rosie the Riveter and Spider Lady.
What did you dress up as this year? Hope you have a safe and great HELLO-ween!
Last weekend–made a stop at Serious Pie in Seattle,WA for late lunch. Deliciousness!
Ohhhh my! Brussels sprout?! Ummmm YES I couldn’t pass this up. I wasn’t ever a big fan of Brussels sprout until the love cooked it for me! Ever since then, you better believe it, anything brussels sprout I am ordering! Future post on Brussel sprout to come.
We ordered a pie topped with sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone and the love added prosciutto. Such a nice touch to our pie–it was complete and tasty.
A touch of lemon in the water is always needed! What restaurant(s) have you tried as of late? Please share because I might just have to stop by when I am in the area.
Oh how the mouse has been needing company. At home and the office space. FINALLY I got around to making them. Simple and too easy. Had everything but the cork piece. Found it at a garage sale for 0.50 cents! Score.
Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.
I eyeballed the lines as I taped it up. It is about an inch apart.
Next you are going to use your X-acto knife and cute out certain pieces that you would want your pattern.
Be sure to be outside or in an open space before using your spray paint. I was in my patio with the nice touch of pine scraps on the balcony. Let the spray paint dry for about 10-15 mins. Spray a second coat if your heart desires for it. Then let it dry another 10-15 mins before peeling off the painters tape.
AND Viola! Finito. A hint of chevron and lines. My mouse finally has a companion.
See what happens when the gloomy weather rolls around? My craft creativity oozes out of me. Hope you enjoyed this and happy Wednesday.
A month filled with birthdays and celebrations. I thought it would be fitting to make mini cards to go with the gifts. Self-art inspired by chevron, stripe, and line patterns. Simple, chic, and pretty cards. A touch of love and effort.
SUPPLIES: White poster board any size, scissors, black permanent marker, and your inspiration pattern.
1} Cut a 4 x 2 blank card stock.
2} Decorate the front with what your heart desires.
3} Cut some diagonals on the ends or you can leave them straight.
4} Mini Cards done! Write you message and its ready to go.
I was take myself into a tour of other things illustration has to offer and stumbled on these squares. Sooo much on illustration I have not explored just yet. In mean while…what have you been doubting yourself with? Set your goals and go after it. Self-doubt kills confidence. Walk out the door everyday wearing your confidence and Tell yourself you GOT what it takes. Think of it as a MUST accessory you leave with everyday. Happy YOU day. HAPPY Monday.
Last summer we had friends visiting. Ohhh these two…I couldn’t get enough of them. B and I miss you guys mucho!!! Here are a few photos I took of them as they explored Cannon Beach or as they call it here “THE COAST”. It was Kara’s first time touching the North Pacific Ocean’s water. The little things that puts a smile on ones face–ohhh I LOVE! Photos taken with Canon 5D Mark ii. Enjoy!
Happy one year birthday to my most goofy and silly nephew. He is a ball of joy, lightens up my day no matter what. He is filled with such light, it out beats any darkness hovering over me.
I love the pictures below. Mu sister sent it to me and told me after singing to him he smothered the cake all over his face and couldn’t stop sabotaging the cake all for himself. The devious look of, YES I did that and no one gets to eat my birthday cake. Ohhh Ryan how I loooove you!
Today is also Boss’s day. Be sure to show your boss an appreciation of what s/he has been to you! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
