Most people would get tired of painting the same face over and over but not me! Especially when the face in question is that of THE Super Sarah.

The first in the series was my wedding gift to Sarah and her husband Richard. The second was Sarah's Valentine's Day gift to Richard. It was a great combo, her love of peanut butter sandwiches and her husband! Finally, the third painting was her gift to herself. Her instructions were to make her look as crazy as possible... I think I captured the crazy just fine.

Everybody loves surprises!

Recently when Laurah and Victoria celebrated thier birthday, I decided I would make them surprise birthday cards cause I'm cool like that. They're twins so they get the same colours cause I bet their mom used to put them in matching outfits when they were little...That's cute.

When you put them side by side, it looks like Laurah is giving Tori the stink eye. And rightfully so.

She's not as scary as she looks!

Having been so sick for over a week, I haven't been able to get any work done. Instead I've decided to share a little tip with you:

When sick, be sure to drink plenty of fluids!

Also, you may or may not have read in an email that applying generous amounts of Vick's vaporub to the soles of your feet before bed will calm a cough overnight. That is FALSE!

Stay tuned for more helpful tips from Artwork by Laura.

I have gained some WIZDUM!

Well, here you have it my dears!

It took me a whoooole day to get this blog to look almost perfect. There are a few things that I would change but with my limited knowledge of html, that is just not possible. It’ll be like your best friend who has those few things about them that drive you half crazy but you love them just the same… To their face at least. Then secretly in your head you’re thinking of ways to make them stop doing whatever it is that drives you half crazy but eventually you realize there’s no way you can fix it. So you just accept it and move on.

So here’s me moving on…

For my first entry with the new fancy shmancy blog, I want to introduce you to something else fancy shmancy.

I know you’re looking for some sweet new threads to add to your wardrobe and have I got the thing for you! Its called Wizdum Designs Inc.

Creators Michelle and Emily have come up with some of the spiffiest T-shirt designs you will feast your eyes on. Not only do Wizdum T's feature a family of cute characters, they also offer a section of "That's me!" shirts that basically let everyone know who you are without even saying a word! There is something there for everyone. Trust me!

Go to ASAP!

My purchase:
"Strong silent-type crew." Incase you didn't know me.

How to...

Wow! Two posts in one night! This is big stuff.
I read somewhere that people like step-by-step, how to things and since I like to keep the people happy, I present you with:

How to wrap a baby shower gift so that it looks pretty at the last second! (pictures included)

Step 1: Buy a bunch of random baby stuff, some clear plastic wrap stuff, ribbon and tape. A helpful tip when purchasing your random baby stuff is to confirm whether the baby will be a boy or girl so that boys don't get pink stuff and girls don't get blue stuff... not that there's anything wrong with that...

Step 2: Lay down a long piece of plastic wrap. Make sure its long enough to wrap everything up with extra for a decorative "puff" at the top. Begin arranging random baby stuff so that it looks nice. This may take some time.

Step 3: It is not necessary to make EVERY piece of random baby stuff visible...They'll see it when they open it.

Step 4: Once everything is in
place, gather up the plastic stuff and tape up the top and the extra plastic stuff at the sides to keep all the random baby junk inside and in place.

Step 5: Looks good! *thumbs up* BUT WAIT!!! THERE'S MORE!

Step 6: To complete your masterpiece, find yourself some pretty ribbon to match the rest of the random baby stuff and tie a nice little bow. This will cover up the tape you used to hold the whole thing together AND make it look like a real gift basket type thing. And now you're ready for the big party!

Now that you've learned how to wrap baby shower gifts, you can take these skills and wrap many other things! The possibilities are endless.

Join me next time when I show you how to make glue mountains. Fun and decorative all at the same time!


Its a new year, the blog has new colours and I'm making a new post! I took some time off but now I'm back!!

So here's the plan, I have a bunch of canvas, paints and some big ideas. I learned that people don't just want to read about me, which I find hard to believe, but I've decided to give in a little and share the spotlight. In the future, not only will I be posting my works, completed AND in progress, but I will be sharing the interesting things I find on the internets and around.

I hope you're ready, cause I know I am!
