April Fool’s

I hope you got somebody good today ;)

Monthly updates are (apparently) where it’s at … for now. I’m currently puttin’ lotsa time and energy into my job. Although my lack of updates might portray the dying of my creative side, I actually don’t feel that’s the case. I still have many ideas up my sleeve, some of which come out into my work and aren’t really shareable :) And sometimes, art is just working through challenges and not stressin’ your life away. So as far as photos go, it’s mostly healthy/yummy food that excites me enough to snap … and a random day off with my long lost and very-much-missed friend …

I’ve been drooling about the memory of this carrot cake for weeks after. It was so different than other carrot cake … made with pumpkin and carrot (obviously) and some carmalized pumpkin seeds, and the topping was made from goat cheese (tasted nothing like goat cheese, but was way lighter than regular icing).

If I knew I was going to live in Regina for the next 5 years, I’d buy these 2 old buildings and turn them into something delightful! They have so much character and so much potential.

Sometimes when the sun lowers, it glimmers so nicely that I have to drop everything I’m doing a take a little look …

These great chocolate combos deserved a mention – raspberry/Lindt dark chocolate and hot chocolate/peppermint tea.

Once in awhile, I get to dust off Photoshop and mess around a bit …

Did you know Co-op has a salad bar where you can throw together your own salad in a matter of minutes? Excellent in a pinch!

Today I was attempting to rust wire with peroxide and salt for a side project! Should be interesting.
