April 18, 2016


I'm so glad that yesterday was a lovely day full of sunshine, the garden and art because Saturday was full of frustration and worry! My computer has crashed and despite hours of working on it, it remains in need of attention. Justin is taking it into the shop today and I'll be trying to figure out how the heck to do all my work and also make sure that everything is even more secure in the future. In the meantime, Shannon and I had a great art day working on our series for the Year of Yellow. This is bringing up lots of challenges, but we're working our way through! I'm sure we'll share more during start! Oh... I have to figure out how I'm going to do that!


It has been exciting to work on some art in charcoal, one of my favourite mediums of all time. Messy, intense, and forgiving. All good things in my book!


This weekend was all about work. Working on recipes I was commissioned to make, a video on making beef stew for Reg and getting a giveaway post and newsletter prepped for Monday ahead of time since I have my procedure Monday morning. I am so exhausted, it's stupid. Everything always happens at once!

Wow, both of you are so talented! It's seriously showing through your art all the effort you both are putting into it, it's amazing to watch.

So sorry to hear about your computer Jamie! I hope they can fix it ASAP.

What a full weekend Jamie! I am so sorry to hear of your computer woes, but I'm glad we were still able to get some art day-ing in. And that you got out in the garder, now that must really feel like spring!

Things really do happen in waves, don't they Suzie? That beef stew looks amazing! I hope you have a reprieve after all that work work work.
