Luzia

So this is going back to last year, end of September I think it was but I just forgot to post about it.
We went to see our 3rd Cirque Du Soleil show called "Luzia"
Oh my oh my, it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G
it literally brought tears to my ears and at one point I was so overcome with emotion at the beauty
of it all that I was physically shaking all over and I couldn't stop.
If you've seen it you'll understand when I mention
the galloping horse at the beginning with the fairy riding on top of it with her wings flowing
and the people running alongside them waving the flowers in joy and happiness etc...
AMAZING!
 
 
I had a screaming bad monster migraine for three days before the show & on the day of the show,
so the 4-5 hours drive to get there was really difficult for me.
(I don't do well in vehicles when I have a sore head, mind you, our Jeep is the best one to be in if I have to be because of it's perfectly placed and super strong heater that I can hold my head up to!)
But if anything could make me temporarily forget about the excruciating pain in my head,
it would be this show, ha ha.  Pretty much for the duration, I was fully immersed and away from
the pain in my head for the most part...although intermission was no piece of cake ha ha!
 
It's not super often that something literally takes my breath away!
Shows like these, it's really just human beings at their most beautiful, tenacious, talented best...
to think of the endless work these performers and artists put into what they do.
Not to mention the visual splendor...all of the color and whimsical intricate design...
the whimsy of it all struck a deep chord and reminded me to keep doing what I do
because color, enchantment and whimsy are transporting and immersing & well just plain magical!

Loving The Lino

I've been really enjoying some printmaking lately
 
 
I started picking up this old beloved medium again back in the Fall
(here's a couple shots when I was working out in the cool air with Jaks enjoying the yard)
 
 
I think I'll be able to show you some hand-pressed prints next week...wohooo, I can't wait.

Hello 2017

Hi again
How are you doing?
How is 2017 treating you so far?
Me??
Well 2016 kinda kicked my ass if I may be honest
and I know I have so much beauty and wonderful things to be thankful for admist the cruddy,
but still, I admit I am happy to see the other side of it...to start fresh with a positive attitude.
 
 
2017 is starting off slowly though I think...but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
I unfortunately haven't had a pain-free day yet in 2017 so that's not a super great start!
& whiles our buns are doing well & the 2 newbies seem really happy, I am still sore over Teela.
I find myself moving a smidge slowly in my studio...finding my footing after long holidays off.
I am not necessarily making resolutions but just trying to visualize where I want to go
in 2017, with my work and with my own self too.
I know already abunch of things I want to work on, professionally and personally
I'll keep the personal list close to my chest right now however.
 
 
I know I want to publish my very first book, finally!!!
I want to get better at putting original work and new items into my dear shop.
I want to get into weaving, do some sewing projects, make some paper dolls,
try some needle felting, dive into watercolours....ahhhh sooo many things to try!
but really I just want to get way more work done than I did in 2016.
 
Are you ready for another year of blogging?  This will be my 9th!
I truly hope you'll continue to join me, I am always so honored when you spend time with me.
& a big huge welcome to anyone new, thank you SO much already XO
Let's Do This!

Winter Wonderland

I have a love hate relationship with where we live...
but when it's a Winter Wonderland, I LOVE it!
We've been out & about a lot, romping about in the snow, taking photos, eating noodles in the cold!
 
 
There's something extra fun in being able to adventure in snowy places where other vehicles can't...
We've been enjoying snowy vistas in our little city, trying to heal our hearts, gasping at the beauty.
Bracing ourselves for our first Christmas without Teela & Frenwyck...breathing deeply, together.

Simply Holidays

I worked a few holidays sketches even though I won't get colour to them until next season...
I don't have big plans for holidays this year, I just want to enjoy simple days and be happy.
 
 
So once I finished some custom pieces (that I unfortunately can't show you)
I decided to take my studio break a bit early to coincide with my honey's.

 
and I've been basking in a gorgeous guy who is so sweet and loving
and who cares for his bunnies like no one else, it's just so lovely to watch.
 
 
We've been settling in the two newbies and lavishing them with love...
and the other 7 so they don't get jealous...there's not enough time in a day that's for sure!

 
We're enjoying old tv like Buck Rogers, Wonder Woman & Thunderbirds with hot cocoas!
It's been nice & sweet & cozy...I hope your finding peace & warmth instead of stress too XO.
