Meet Andy. 

This past Christmas, a friend introduced me to felting and I fell in love. My cat was the lucky recipient of my first work. Catnip Cupcake!!

I have been telling my friends and family to get excited for the felting gifts coming their way.

After going to the 1 of a Kind Show and seeing the work of Wendo Van Essen they should get really excited.

Her Vegan Taxidermy just took felting to another level!!

Meet Andy, my felting companion and inspiration.

DAY OF THANKS FOR MARCH 23

building man

LEO Jul 23 | Aug 22 According to the international code of food standards, there are 13 possible sizes for an olive. They include large, extra large, jumbo, extra jumbo, giant, colossal, super colossal, mammoth and super mammoth. If I had my way, Leo, you would apply this mindset to everything you do in the coming weeks. It’s time for you to think very big. You will thrive as you expand your mind, stretch your boundaries, increase your territory, amplify your self-expression, magnify your focus and broaden your innocence.

Its funny that this is my horoscope this time.

Last week I did a FaceBook post asking for construction help because I have finished the design/lay out of the 100 square foot home and I know where everything goes and what it looks like, but I don’t know how to make it structurally sound. This post helped me find my electrician. Solar panel teacher. Check.

I also reached out to a few graphic artistic friends and now my next “Toronto Art Installation” is moving forward to the design/production phase.

I just sent an email to this guy, Elton McDonald. I wonder if he might be the one to help me see if my home can stand…

The heart of the home

grand cook stoveI have had a lot of romantic day dreams about cooking in my new home. Thanks to some amazing Amish design I think they are about to come true.

Meet the heart of my home – The Grand Cook Stove.

6 loaves of bread, a tasty birthday cake or simple stir fry … sky is the limit!

 

Happy Birthday!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is one of my favourite pictures of my mom. She is not a fan of it. I love it. It is like the best caricature of her ever.

I grew up in a home filled with everything good. Love, laughter, humour, discipline, chores, road trips, friendship (there is more, way more).

When I talk about my mom I always say two things….

“If you looked up the definition of unconditional love, you would see a picture of her there.”

“My mom is like Martha Stewart without the need to be famous. Amazing baking, homemade halloween costumes, cake decorating course birthday cakes, hand made moccasins, a creative and well decorated home and a garden that was delicious. Oh yah, she also worked full time.”
