Frida with Blue Dog

Hello beautiful people!
I have a new painting listed on ebay called "Frida with Blue Dog". I used a mix of collage papers and paint on canvas. I gave Frida a slightly more robust figure this time. I think she looks cute. The little doggie is all furry :)
The colors are warm and remind me of fall.
Talk to you soon!

A day with Dinosaurs.

Today Morgan and I went to the Royal Ontario Museum better known as the ROM. We were in the mood to see some dinosaurs. I like all the little dinosaurs. I'd love to have one as a pet. Just like the Flintstones "dog" Dino.
I was wearing my grey top that I got from esty seller treehouse28. It was a lot of fun. Then a quick trip to near-by Wholefoods to pick up more sesame tofu and rice.
Hope you all are enjoying the last days of summer.

Pulled in every direction

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been updating the blog as much as usual. Like Opie above, I believe I have bitten off more than I can chew :)
I have youtube, blog, facebook, esty, ebay, flickr, stickam all on the computer, and then I also have the gallery show, packing up packages, going to the post office, groceries, cleaning etc, you get the idea, plus Morgan is on a vacation and I want to spend as much time with him as possible before he goes back to work. I should be back to normal soon. Once the cats go back to school....oh wait, they don't go to school! Darn! Never mind....
One way or another I'll be back to blogging regularly again.
Update on the "no candy diet", I've been doing great and have had NO Candy since however long it has been that I declared that. At least 2 months by now. I did have some cookies last week and felt a bit guilty about it, and some ice cream today, but still, no candy! I was eating candy every day.
I'm also enjoying tofu and eating as much pure real food as possible.
(((BIG HUGS)))

They gang's all here!

I've met so many fun and interesting people from YOUTUBE. We have been chatting via webcams for over 2 months now. Today we all met for the first time IN PERSON! They have travelled from the USA to Toronto to go to this years YOUTUBE convention.
It was so exciting to see them for REAL instead of in a tiny 1 inch square box on the computer. I wish I could met all you here in blogland too!

Healthy eating

I have been sticking to my healthy eating diet. I actually don't crave candy anymore!!! YAY! Can you believe it? I think it's been about 3 or maybe 4 weeks since I've eaten chocolate. I got through the rough patches by eating dried mango and raisins. I've had meat about 4 times in the 4 weeks since I started this new way of eating. Only eating meat once a week is a big cut back! I do plan on cutting it out altogether soon. I feel guilty every time I eat it. I have been having a lot of tofu and I love it! Whole Foods is my new haven :) I go there once a week and get lots of good stuff. This is putting a bit of a dent in my wallet. But I feel it is worth it to get healthy. I also use unscented laundry detergent, pure bath soap, crystal deodorant etc. I am avoiding chemicals at all costs. I am trying to stay as organic and pure as possible. This being said, I don't think I will be dying my hair. I just don't think my body can handle the chemicals involved.
So this is what is new around here. My friends from Youtube will be coming here on Thursday! It will be so cool to actually meet them in person! YAY!
Talk to you soon!
