The flowering balls can usually be reused two or three times without the tea becoming bitter.  It is unknown if the tea balls are from modern China or much older.  So give it a try, you… Continue reading The Amazing Flowering Tea Balls.

Not aloud to laugh…

However grammar is no laughing matter... The words 'aloud' and 'allowed' sound similar and are sometimes confused. Aloud The adverb 'aloud' means 'out loud' and refers to sound (almost always speech). Examples: Please do not read aloud. You're disturbing everyone else in the library. The public are not keen on lip-syncing; therefore, medal hopefuls must… Continue reading Not aloud to laugh…

I have completed a bit more on this piece. A bit of a close up of the paper boat, which I am very happy with.

How I Met Your Mother. Season Finale. No spoilers.

So just finished watching HIMYM, season finale, loved it, loved it, loved it.  My 19-year-old son summed it up by yelling at the screen "OMG it's happening, it's all coming together!" (we are not quiet reserved people in our house). I think I watched the entire episode with a big silly smile on my face. … Continue reading How I Met Your Mother. Season Finale. No spoilers.

  Oh I had to laugh the other day, going through some old school stuff and found my sketches from the subject loosely titled "Fashion".  I'm guessing it is aprox 1985.  I'm sure we could probably guess just by looking at these two pics. This one is my favourite.  I was a little put out… Continue reading Fashion Sketches From The 20’s and 80’s.

Hair Moose And A Fairy Tale.

Once upon a time there was a little girl.  She loved to be outside when all her friends wanted to watch the television.  She didn't care at all.  She, in fact, preferred it. She preferred to be alone in the wild wild woods.  She proclaimed the woods her realm.  She walked those woods like she… Continue reading Hair Moose And A Fairy Tale.
