Day 27: Tonight after work, with less than two hours to spare, I made two eye portraits. One photographed and one sketched. Three more days left.
Day 26: I made a sexy massage blend using the aphrodisiac oils of rosewood, clary sage, ylang ylang and neroli. These oils are also really relaxing. They have a really useful basic recipe for DIY massage oil over at AromaWeb. For some good blending ideas, they also have a number of classic blends as well as … Continue reading Sexy Scents – A Blend for Lovers (Let’s Just Love Eachother)
Day 25: So I got crafty with scissors, glue and scrapbook paper today. It's my favourite type of crafting by far! I used up some more old photo frames and make some simple pictures to put inside. Please note: the two frames are so ugly. I bought them for 25 cents each, thinking they were … Continue reading Cut n’ Paste Inspiration (Words I Need to Tell Myself)
I played around with the new camera last night but was far too fatigued to actually post the shot. I feel like I'm being almost completely taken over by lethargy these days. From talking to other folks, it seems like I'm not the only one. So strange. What is so different about this summer I … Continue reading Day 24: Chamomile in my Window

I've never used a sewing pattern before so I'm … Continue reading Scrap Fabric Framed Art

It was rainy and a bit cooler out today so thought making something warm and … Continue reading Mexican Vermicelli Soup & Watermelon Granita = foodgasm
My late night snack as art.
Day 20: We had finished making dinner at work today and as we were starting to clear the dishes, I peeked out the window and noticed the trail of a plane through the clouds and how stunning the sky looked - so many different textures and patterns, with gloomy accents and hints of pink & … Continue reading The View From Here
Day 19: Our favourite show (half jokes/half serious) is OLN's Mantracker and we watch it every Sunday night. So to honour this love and to honour my love on this fine Sunday evening, I whipped open good ol' MS Paint to create this gem/mess 🙂 What's been your most favourite MS Paint creation?
Day 18: Today I made some lip balm. It's fun and simple to make, trust me. So much, that you won't want to buy it from a store again! I've made lip balm before, but thought I'd spice it up this time (ohhh witty). Here is a simple recipe from this awesome book if you're … Continue reading Honey Orange Spice Lip Balm
