>Some lemony goodness

>This is a painting I did last year. I had been waiting to do its sister Lime before taking pictures but then I figured I might as well show it now. After all, it’s already been a year… I used all sorts of things on there. Even a cardboard circle (you know the ones that ribbon comes on) that I painted and stuck on there (it’s the bigger circle.)

Another successful day yesterday. I almost didn’t go for my evening walk but then I decided to go buy a popsicle at the corner grocery shop (five minutes to walk there.) I had one of those 3-color popsicles and it was yummy! My tongue was purple after that!

This morning, my walk was longer. 25 minutes. I felt good, it was beautiful outside, birds singing… Very enjoyable. Now it’s time to cook up something for dinner… but what? I have no idea yet!

Have a pleasant evening!


>Second Day and a Cute Purse

>Isn’t this a cute purse? It’s made of Coca-Cola cans which have been cleaned, cut and flattened to be able to sew them onto a plastic material. I bought this at Ten Thousand Villages so of course, it’s Fair Trade.

I did everything on my list yesterday, not that it is that much stuff to do. I also went for my walk this morning. No crows harassing me this time! Phew!

I should get a folding chair for when I want to go by the lake to draw or paint or whatever else I feel like doing when looking at water and nature. I think my parents have 3 of them… Maybe they’ll lend me one for a while? Or maybe I’ll just go buy one (I have to buy other stuff anyway, like rechargeable batteries.)

One thing I did yesterday was cleaning the planting pot that’s on my balcony in order to maybe plant something in it. I don’t know what. Maybe just throw flower seeds in there and see if they’ll grow. Well that’s it for now. I’ll put more photos of my graffiti backgrounds on Flickr. I’ve decided that I’ll make them available for people to print and use in their own altered art.

Alrighty, that’s it for now. Enjoy your afternoon!


>Something different

>Today, I’m starting something different. I tend to be a lazy person so in order to DO things I NEED to do, I have to set a schedule, a routine, a goal, etc I am not a very active person but I do WANT to exercise more. So I’ve decided, for the next 30 days (which will end on the day before going back to work), to go for a walk every morning, after writing my Morning Pages, doing some stretching and/or Yoga (mini sessions – self taught). It doesn’t have to be a long walk or a fast paced one. Just 10-15 minutes in the morning, while it’s still cool out, before actually having breakfast. And then, after lunch or dinner, another 10-15 minutes of walking.

Already, next weekend will be a challenge since I won’t be home. Going to Quebec with Caroline, sleeping at a friend’s house. I’ll figure something out, I’m sure. I HAVE to!

In other news, did you know that Subway now has a vegetarian sub made with veggie patties? At least the one I went to yesterday, in Montreal-Est, had it. And it was yummy!


>2-page layout


Last wednesday, I went to Catherine’s house for her Stampin’ Up! “open house” party. It was fun. We did 2 make-n-takes. We received a piece of cardboard cake with goodies inside. And I won a paper pack! I usually don’t win anything! Yippie! So these two pages are done with said papers from the pack. I love the colours! This is for my 8.5″ x 8.5″ album. I’m liking this 2-page spread a lot! What do you think?

>I’ve been playing with paints and stencils and colours lately. Creating backgrounds to use in other projects such as handmade journals, ATCs, Fatbooks, etc. I’m having fun! 😀

Jazz Fest was fun. We ate at Les 3 Brasseurs which was delish! We saw a group of fire-breathers which was absolutely stunning.

Other than that, not much is happening at the moment, which is fine. I’m feeling good and I’m happy with my life right now.

This is a sample of my “graffiti” backgrounds.
