More Jurrassic Jewels

How amazing are these ammonites....I am so lucky to have a little collection going.
My honey knows me, he knows that I much prefer these kind of Jurrassic jewels to real jewelry!

Ammonites were very prolific back in the age of the dinosaurs,
so they are a pretty abundantly found fossil nowadays.

They went extinct 65 million years ago, with the dinosaurs but some of these may even be older
than that & that's what blows my mind, that I can hold something in my hand that is that old, wow!

Not Just A Tooth

Check out this tooth! but it's not just any tooth, it's a Jurrassic Tooth!
My sweet sweet man actually got me a dinosaur tooth this past Christmas
I am so so amazed by dinosaurs, the completely different world they lived in,
in a time so inconceivably long ago, on this same precious earth that we are now living, wowza!

This tooth is from a Mosasauras.
He would have lived in the water and would have been about 50 feet long and 28,000 pounds!
Mosasauras's lived from 175 to 65 million years again,
how crazy is it that I can hold a piece of that history and world in my very hands.
It's like holding a star, it's unbelievable to me, it makes me feel very very small
and it reminds me of how very very precious life is because it can be over in the blink of an eye.

Brrrrr, Cozy & Lucky sure is nasty out there today.  We're expecting over a foot of snow
and that's just after a week of very slippery and icy conditions....YUCK.

But it makes the house and home so so much cozier & delightful & embracing, don't you think?
Those of us who are so very lucky enough to be able to get and stay inside that is!

Cutting Out The Colour

One of my favourite parts of making my images is the part where I releash the image from it's paper suuroundings, it's a delicate somewhat time consuming process sometimes but it's meditative too.

It goes much more smoothly when I work on a thin less textured paper which I tend to use for these butterflies because they are so small.  I always get a few colored & cut out before I get them onto their backgrounds.

Friends Not Food Tee

When I was having a rough patch a few months back a friend gave me this sweet tee and I love it so...

Animals are "Friends Not Food".  Every single time I eat, I choose to honor this very true statement.

Suffering With Sweetness

Leisel, otherwise known as our marshmallow wrapped in a razor blade! seems to be my sentient.
Teela, my beloved departed used to be my ever trusty watcher,
before her it was our lovely Ella-Luna who took on the job
....always seems to be a female bun that's my watcher.

When I am laying in the bed Leisel comes and checks on me almost hourly,
sometimes she waits and watches me from the end of the bed...
If I don't move for awhile she keeps nudging me until I do move and say "I am okay baby".
It's really really very very touching and sweet, especially coming from our broken Leisel,
even when my head is feeling like it's going to split open, the utter sweetness of it isn't lost on me.

On these days another sweet lovely thing are lovely large sweet soy lattes with a big hit of
coconut whipping cream! (I know I know 'the sugar' but my sugar intake is otherwise low).
Sometimes the hit of strong caffeine with a dose of codeine helps me out a bit pain wise so I see it
as medicinal in a way ha ha! But they do truly feel needed, well deserved & certainly appreciated too!

A Gash Ack!

Back in the Fall my sweet man gashed his head open.  He was building me a new studio shelf
and in a battle between a ceiling fan and a forehead, the ceiling fan won! Ugh.

Of course, he's a man, so he was protesting that he didn't need to go to the ER, even though
you could see skull-bone!!  As you can see, I got him to go, he'll have a scar for awhile though.

Big Books Small Bunny

Is it the big bookshelf's and picture books that make our Higgins look extra small...

or is he so small he makes everything else look bigger, ha ha, either way here he is in a favorite spot.

Owl Moth?

I am always finding these amazing guys in mornings in the summers
when I go out to fold laundry that has been hung to dry outside.

His awesome little precious face looks so much like an owl to owl moth?
Does anyone have any idea what kind of moth this is, I can't find a match up anywhere!?

Make Good Choices

Cruelty-Free products are the only way for me, it's sooo important to me
and I've 100% been trusting my hair to this hair dye for years now...

It's natural and cruelty-free...why should bunnies or any animal suffer for our beauty?!
Testing on animals is the opposite of beautiful & what's done to them is sickening & grotesque,
BUT the beauty market is a horrendous evil for millions of animals every single year.

Don't be part of the torture & make sure your making an effort to buy cruelty-free too.
It's so so easy, just look for 'Not Tested On Animals" or the leaping bunny
or check the list here if your not sure.

Bambu Coffee Substitue

I am a coffee addict, no doubt about it, especially when I am having a rough day,
I just want a huge sugary soy latte to soothe away the crap, emphasis on the sugary!!! 
BUT I know my body doesn't like it & I've really been making more of an effort to listen to my body.

So I've been slowly replacing my big caffeinated coffees with this acorn/fig substitute from Bambu,
with lots less sugar....not every day is a success, I admit that!  But it's a work in progress.

Have any of you tried it?

On The Way

I have more of Jaks Glitter Jewels on the way, at least 5 are all colored and ready for the next step...

but I am really struggling for studio time lately, it's been a pretty rough season for migraine pain.
