climbing mountains


This week’s theme at Small Fancy is “Climb every Mountain“. It’s an homage of sorts to our friends Anastasia and JosuĂ© who just got back from climbing mountains in Africa (!).

My trip last weekend was so much fun! Even though I was dreading turning 37 (sounds so old), I think I might have had one of my best birthdays yet. I was thoroughly spoiled. I want to thank everyone who made it such a great day, especially my lovely husband who held down the fort while I was away. The kids had so much fun, I don’t think they even noticed I was gone. 🙂

pet peeves


This week’s theme at Small Fancy is “Pet Peeves”. I decided to draw a page from my Grade 8 year book. Back in 1987 there seemed to be an epidemic of both brothers and soggy toast. Click here to see them! Happy weekend.

summer food


While we happily eat our weight in greens and veggies, summer is all about beer and BBQed hamburgers for me (closely tied with ice cream and homemade pizza on the BBQ).

Summer Food is the theme over at Small Fancy this week. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.



This week’s Small Fancy theme is “sweethearts”. Mine was inspired by my recent walks with Sosi. We’ve been collecting leaves on our way to and from school. We cut out little hearts in them with our finger nails. She then leaves them on the door steps of our neighbours.

I think this week is my favourite match of Mia’s and my drawings.



This week’s theme over at the Small Fancy is “Camping”. I had fun with this one. I miss my camping days. They ended when I met my husband. He generally does not enjoy the outdoors… bugs.. getting dirty. Not the makings of a good camper. He makes up for it by being awesome in many other ways.

Happy long weekend!

reincarnated as…


This week’s theme over at The Small Fancy is “reincarnated as”.

Is there really any other animal to be reincarnated as other than a cat? You would always be warm and cozy, you would get lots of sleep, cuddles whenever you want and no one expects too much from you.  Man, the cats have it good.

To see the full image and to see Mia’s take on the theme, visit our Small Fancy site.

Happy weekend!

I will have my shop update done for Monday. I will have 6 little mini barn paintings for sale. I have put my “You are Loved” screen prints on sale. If you want one, now is the time to snatch them up!

See you Monday.
