Serious Pie

Last weekend–made a stop at Serious Pie in Seattle,WA for late lunch. Deliciousness!

Not only do they serve pizza they also have biscuits.

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 HINT of gold: CHEVRON and lines.

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.

CHEVRONLINES1_TEE2ENVISAGE

Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.

CHEVRONLINES1_TEE2ENVISAGE

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.

CHEVRONLINES3_TEE2ENVISAGE

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.

NO DOUBT!

YOUGITIT_TEE2ENVISAGE

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.

DIY message in a JAR.

As promised here is the message in a jar post I made for Mel’s farewell-new job-birthday celebrations.

DIYMESSAGEINAJAR_TEE2ENVISAGE

WHAT YOU NEED:

1} A jar to store your messages (Jar from dollar tree)

2} A pile of 3×2″ white papers (computer paper is just fine)

3} A bunch of four inch strings for your guest to tie their message ( I used hemp strings)

4} Two card 8 x 12″ board pieces (cardboard from old boxes)

5} Utensils for your guest to write with.  Sharpies never a bad idea.

6} AND your creativity!

Message in a jar can be made for any occasion.  Its like a jar of reminders to boost ya up just when ya need it!  A gift that is thoughtful, unique, and filled with greatness.  Perfect gift for Mel as she left PDX–a little message from EVERYONE.  A bunch of messages for her to read when the homesick feeling rolls around.  The white cap was too plain I had to fancy it up with words and some colors.  The cap with SIX words I felt was necessary for her new chapter: perseverance, resilient, believe, hope, faith, and love.   Have fun creating your jar filled with messages for your love one.  Please share if you do–I would love to see the jar you create.

Goofiest nephew.

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!
