My Lately

+Pretty blossoms that look like snow...

+Super-fun mugs! (I have a bit of an obsession with strange/unique mugs...)

+Lotsa recipe testing for Celine and Tami's new cookbook, and for Isa's new cookbook. So much yum! I can't wait to share more!

+When it's nice out, my neighbor let's their parrot hang out in the backyard. It's a bit surreal to hear a parrot squawking in Brooklyn...


There's something in my tea!

Vegan Quiche and a yummy salad

Doughnut Ice Cream and Kitties

Ice Cream and Kitties are two of the best things in the world, am I right? Nik and I ventured out in the beautiful sunshine this weekend to Lula's for some Doughnut Ice Cream (made with Dunwell Doughnuts!!) So delicious.

My silly little guy is feeling better lately, with his insulin shots giving him more energy and getting him back to his old self again. <3 

Not letting me work. He's too cute to move!

Sammy Narwhal

Sammy Narwal in his magical place.

Hello and Happy Friday to you. I have a new painting to share! I've been trying to paint more these days, and get myself away from the computer (not that the computer is a bad thing, but you know, paint!) I am pretty excited about this print, as it gives me a little bit of spring fever, even though all the blooms are underwater. I really would love to go scuba diving someday and find a magical colorful place like this. Anyways, a print of this painting is available and Sammy Narwhal is eagerly awaiting Spring just like me (Daytime savings is this weekend! Don't forget to change your clocks forward!)

Print is available in the shop here.

Happy Friday!

Being a grumpy-pants

Long Cat

Happy Friday! This week flew by so fast, I've had trouble grasping what day of the week it has been. My kitty cat, Miles, recently was diagnosed with Diabetes, and I learned how to give him insulin shots the other day. It isn't as scary as I thought it was going to be. It's a really small amount of insulin with a tiny needle, so he doesn't even notice me sticking him. It's amazing how much his energy came back though! So happy! I missed my little guy over the last few weeks, and I'm glad that he is finally starting to act like his normal self again. Now here's hoping that he is one of the lucky diabetic cats that go into remission, so that he doesn't have to continue with shots forever. With the insulin he is on, a great deal of cats will go into remission within 1-4 months of taking it. I'm hopeful! 

It's been a weird year so far, with so many people I know and love having serious health problems. I'm amazed that I have stayed so positive. It's a good reminder to hug the ones you love and tell them so. Anyways, I hope you have a good weekend! I'll be staying in and working on putting together all the Fab orders I received (thank you!!) and finishing up a bunch of paintings (I'll show you more of those next week!)
