If I Lose My Magic...

Still sick :( I don't want to go to the dr. But I think my fever finally broke. :) I plan to lay on the couch and watch movies, and sleep. I'll have to catch up with my blogging later this week when I'm feeling better.

What's For Dinner: Chicken Cacciatore

new recipe I am trying out tonight. You can find it here.

Online Window Shopping

Since I am home sick today, I've just been surfing the net and doing some online window shopping. I found a new shop for handmade goods. Check out Hannah Zakari.

I am really digging brooches right now, I think I am going to try my hand at making one today, right after this. I'll keep you posted!

I am in love with this necklace...
Of course I can't resist anything with a cupcake on it...
I have loved Delia's since I was in jr. high. I've never ordered anything from there, but maybe soon I will. They have some awesome graphic Tees...these are my favs...

Warehouse 13: Claudia

So we've been watching Warehouse 13 on netflix. I think we only have one more episode left of season 1, then I'll have to see if i can catch a recap marathon of season 2 on SyFy.

I really like Claudia, she is the "young, hip, brilliant techno-wiz" who hacked into the warehouse computer systems and kidnapped Artie...well don't want to give too much away if you haven't seen it. (info found at wikipedia)

Claudia has awesome style in the show, with an attention to detail that pulls it all together. I was looking for a pic of this brooch she had with a pistol on it, but sadly I can't find it. So if you find a pic/know where I can buy one let me know.

She also has great hair! I like how the stripe changes color depending on her outfit, and it almost makes me want my hair red again lol...almost...I think working at the Warehouse would be a fun job! Hanging out eating tacos and donuts, and making steam punk devices sounds rad to me.

Today I polyvored an outfit of what I would wear to work if I worked at the Warehouse. PS the top hat is a must!

Sick Day

Yesterday I went home early from work. I was feeling like a zombie with my sore throat and thought that my head might explode any minute. Of course today I feel worse, but I have today yay. Yesterday Clint and I went and got cookie dough, but he put his foot down on the marshmallow cream. We watched some Warehouse 13, I think were almost done with season 1.

I love these gummi strawberries, I by them at the Candy Wrapper in the mall all the time.
I thought this was awesome! I love playing Cooking Mama. I'm not into the wh0le Lady Gaga thing, but I thought this was pretty rad.
These signs should be everywhere!
Oh totoro steal my heart and my snot...
My friend T is at Morphacon. This made me think of her. She went as the Pink Ranger, and has a bad ass costume.
How cute and cozy. I need to go to Japan. Back to being sick....

Now I See That You're Moving Back To Where There's Sun

Today there were:
Extra shots of espresso in my coffee.
Talks of lava lamp aliens.
Looking through Buddy Holly's glasses.
Trains to the bathroom.
Acoustic 90's music.
Family & Friends.
Thrift Store Cowboys.

What did you do today?

I Feel Like Singing Garth Brooks Songs

It's late and I have to be up early for work...booo...straight after work tomorrow, I'm headed over to the Buddy Holly Center where Clint's band is doing a summer showcase. I didn't get to go last year, but I'm excited I get to this year! I don't know what to wear...but I would totally wear this outfit!

But I will probably end up wearing jeans and a tshirt b/c of the early morning, and me wanting to sleep...
I am in love with this. I have been looking for a bad ass compass rose. I want to get a tattoo of one...someday
I made things today, but I want to make more. I wish making things was all I had to talk about...maybe from now on that is all I will talk about...hmmmm...
And randomly I do feel like singing Garth Brooks songs. What is your favourite Garth Brooks song?

Miles To Go

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there's some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost

Taking Flight

This is my Starbucks inspired painting. I did this for me, just for fun! I am trying my hand at some new techniques. The stamp in the center I carved myself a while back. I used scrapbook paper, coffee cozies, glitter glue, acrylic, and charcoal. This mixed media stuff is super fun!

I bought this book by Kelly Rae Roberts. It is super inspiring and there are lots of new techniques to try!

Right now I am waiting on some paint and gesso to dry so I can continue on another painting I am working on. I am recycling some old flat canvases. I think I will try painting on wood again soon, but bigger pieces. I could really use a easel so I can work on my huge cupcake painting! I am still listening to lots of French music, today I threw in the Marie Antoinette soundtrack, and some new Tegan and Sara. Did you know my momma was gonna name me Tegan?! That would have sooo rocked!

What projects are you working on?

I Kinda Feel Like...

NOT doing laundry, but tye-dying everything wouldn't be so bad...
going back to the past, when all i worried about was catching the next episode of Saved by the Bell....and my crush on Zack Morris
drinking's brewing right now...
painting today, and being creative....
being silly, and pretending i'm a zombie, dinosaur, etc....

What do you kinda feel like doing/not doing?

Je ne suis la belette de personne.

It's 1 am and I'm still up...shocker I know! I have been doodling, and was inspired by coffee/starbucks...tomorrow I may paint a little painting and show you :)

I want to do a little painting in my kitchen, and on canvas and other found objects tomorrow! You should too...
I've been listening to these two cd's non stop recently. French music has been really relaxing/inspiring....

I want to try some of these wedge sha-booties!
I can't walk in heels, but these seem a bit more sturdy? right? lol
I guess I should go to sleep and cuddle with my snoring puppies...I only have a minor...scratch that major headache from red bull withdrawls...sigh...

Day Off Detoxing...

I have the next 2 days to detox off Red Bull. Now that they busy time of the year, so far, is over...I'm saying goodbye to Red least for now.... :)

I love cooking, I used to be big into Rachel Ray, but then as I tried making her recipes I realized her ingredients cost a fortune! I've recently been making lots of Ellie Krieger recipes. Not only are they healthy, but easy to make, and don't cost a fortune. She has an awesome risotto recipe! So tonight I am making her macaroni and cheese recipe...there is a video below..
