Fabric shopping

My mom and I went out this week to find fabric for maternity clothes. I'm getting too big for everything I own. I kinda feel like an oompa loompa.

Folk Festina in the Campground

Finally found some wandering minstrels in the Campground.  I was getting ready for my security shift to begin when they began singing. So far lots of fun.

Otters at the Pool

Every year my family gets a family pool pass but this year all the neighbourhood outdoor pools are free! I’m really happy about this because on the days that I miss going to the pool I don’t feel as guilty. Anyway, yesterday I went swimming with my mom, Yuri, my niece Sofia and nephew Asher. I like being in water, it takes the pressure off my growing belly and I feel like an otter. Yuri took the photos, so there is no evidence of him getting wet.





Of course we took some lovely pictures of our feet. Its always important to capture the feet.

My World Is Growing



The world is such a beautiful place and I get to show it to two little people I created.

Dream Painting in Progress



I had a dream a year or two ago that I was mixing thick purple paints. I was painting a large canvas, pouring and weaving the different shades of purple. The painting had three buffalo skulls on it, white like chalk.

When I woke up I quickly did the picture in photoshop so I wouldn’t forget. Now I’ve been working on a smaller version and the big one at the same time. The big painting is 4 feet by 4 feet. I wanted to make it even bigger but currently this is the largest canvas I have.

Springtime in Winnipeg


Had a play date with my little sister Alexina last Sunday. A play date is us wanting to hangout, it doesn't actually have anything to do with entertaining her children. We took a walk near her house, the weather was miserable and we actually came across snow. It feels like spring is never going to actually get here.

May Day Feet


Yesterday I attended the May Day rally with my family. The event went well but my poor sister’s feet were so blistered afterward. I thought the bruises were very becoming next to her pink nail polish.

Victor the Sea Monster


“Victor the Sea Monster” is a drawing done by Tick-A-Lee-Kick. She was daydreaming about a sea monster who swallows house boats. Then his eyes change into big yellow windows.

In the daydream everything was made out of pieces of felt and fabric. But, she made her drawing with pencil crayons and markers.

Tick-A-Lee-Kick wasn’t too happy with it but I told her it was good for someone working with art supplies that are twice her size.

Winter Journaling

Spring does not look like it’ll be here anytime soon. Because of the blizzard today I was going through my “I Love Winter” art journal. I haven’t done a whole lot of pages in it because I’m having a difficult time loving winter in Winnipeg. Walking_On_Snow_Banks

Valentine Tights


New Friday’s Feet

Slowly getting back into blogging and actually having a set schedule.

I wore these tights on Valentine’s Day, they’ve become my favourite pair.  I had Yuri take the picture because I couldn’t get the angle I wanted and didn’t have the patience to set it up for myself.
