Sunsets & Smiles

It's been a rollercoaster 4+ months...
My niece will probably kill me for posting this photos but I just can't help it, I love them...
They are just so representative our of our time together these past weeks...

Just us hanging out, dealing with stressful things, soaking in sunsets,
goofing around and making each other smile...I am still 110% sure I made the right choice in
never having kids but that doesn't mean that I don't love this kid to the moon and back XOXO.

The Way Of Waves

If your like me and stress about pretty much everything under the sun!!! (I am working on it!)


I highly recommend going to the water, clearing your mind & just watching the way of the waves!

Miss Misa's Vantage Point

I like to make things as visually pleasing for us AND for the bunnies we make our family with.
I tend to put artwork where they can enjoy it as much as we do, I hang as low as possible usually.
and I find that I am especially extra keen on making Miss Misa's space visually pleasing.

She loves mirrors (if I were half as cute as she was I would too, ha ha!)
She loves to flip on her back, so I am glad her ceiling is painted with clouds & ladybugs
and she's always going up on her hind-legs to look around so I am pretty sure she sees all the pictures.

Sweet Friends

One of the best things about having my niece staying with us for a few months
was how she bonded with our Flynn and how he was so unusually friendly with her...

I felt proud of her embracing her animal nurturing side (which sadly hadn't been encouraged) and
I felt proud of my boy for trusting a stranger almost so suddenly and so so sweetly.  Good job flea.

Food Friday

So if your a veg head like we are, you've got to make sure your getting legumes and beans...
This is a super easy dish that we whip up often, it's full of flavor and loaded with beans for protein.

It's all in one pot....put in a can of tomatoes, a couple of fresh ones diced in too, potatoes, cauliflower,
chickpeas, kidney beans, lots of garlic & lots of curry...cover & cook until all is soft. ENJOY XO.

Rainy Day Happies

Despite the fact that rainy days are huge triggers for my pain...
I LOVE love love being stuck inside, curling up with sketchbooks, eating, tidying...


Buns get extra time, the house is extra cozy & the back deck has a cover so we can all go out & snuggle up and listen to the rain...ahhhh loveliness....I hope your embracing a grateful heart too XO.

Spectacular Beauty

It amazes me, how different each and every sunset is, the beauty is so much I can't take it all in...

I hope I never ever ever become the kind of person who doesn't notice all the spectacular beauty!

Skipping Stones

Well my little bird is on summer holidays now and suddenly she's super busy and her time is
booked up with friends (remember those days!) so she's hanging out with us a lot less now...


That's okay because our schedule has changed too, but I sure did enjoy our spring & early summer together, especially the simple things like watching her skipping stones with her uncle supreme.

Sketching With Fruit & Bunnies

Just give days full of sketching time, bunnies to snuggle and fresh fruit
and I am one happy and content gal (even with a sore head!).

It's been a pretty rainy summer
but I honestly don't mind one bit really because it just means more of these favorite things!

Food Friday

Sometimes simple is best, especially with your veg and fruit.
I LOVE strawberries dipped in almond butter

But I also love a huge salad, this one was grape tomatoes with cucumber, pepitas, almonds
and my usual olive oil, lemon juice and agave dressing.

A Note On Pain

The problem with suffering from migraines and headaches is that they are completely silent,
They are invisible, they wreck havoc in a place that absolutely no one outside of 'the circle' can see.
There is no cure, only pain management and for some of us, nothing helps, 
especially when your like me & suffer from several kinds of migraines/headaches.
Over the years I've developed a pretty high working/functioning pain threshold,
but it all depends on where the pain hits, if it's throbbing all across the back of my head
but an 8 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the worst) I can often function and get things done
(alongside nausea, willpower and knowing I'll pay later but I can often forge through).
BUT if the pain hits in my right eye for example and only on a scale of say 2,
I'll probably have to lay down in dark with heat and cold all day until it passes.

I do my best with this life full of chronic and acute pain
and in a round about way (which I explain in more depth on my website's About page)
I feel like I lead an even more beautiful life because of the pain...
I must seek the silver lining as much as possible
because it makes all the pain that I can't escape just a bit easier.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you don't suffer from chronic pain,
if you don't have things holding you back physically
than grab life by the balls and be super duper grateful
because thousands of head-pain sufferers like me, no matter how tenacious,
no matter how big and proud and strong our hearts and spirits, we often just can't.

Colour and a Person In Ink Pen

I am in that mode again...
bits and pieces mode where I am doing a little bit on this picture & a little bit on that one & so on...
So I don't have a whole lot of final pieces to show you right now but than I'll have a whack of em!

Here's something a bit different from my usual ink pen work that's dragging on a bit.
I think it's my first time drawing a person in ink pen, usually I just stick to animals & flowers etc...
I tried adding colour too for the first time as well, hmmm, we'll see how it goes!

Opps...sorry to have suddenly disappeared on you!
That was a bit of an unexpected blog break due to a suddenly stressful time with our beautiful Elsie...

Right now, I just wanted to hop in with a quick "Hi" and to say that I think I am back to blogging XO

Gorgeousness & Waves

I get my butt to the beach as often as I can, sometimes it's daily, if my head cooperates enough...

besides the incredible beauty of it all...I also sit there and appreciate that gorgeous guy of mine XO
