Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

Cool Monday

Good morning everyone, look what I came across the other day.  No, not for me, I brought it to the attention of someone else who was delighted.  Her husband explained, she had one rooms with wall to wall villages, all for the month of December.  Yes, it was kept out all year, there was too much of it to  put away each year only to be taken out again in a few months.  Her happiness at this find was INFECTIOUS.

I happily went on my way towards the area I wanted to check out. But it was a good reminder on how another person’s happiness can have such a positive effect on others. Everyone around got into the “spirit” as she told us about her Christmas room.  Meanwhile for me it was back to the search for items to work into my fright journal. –smiles— just thinking about the black soot pages, splattering of dried blood, and other fiendish fun things I can find.

To each one’s own…. pleasures be… and happily for me, I delight in the décor and fun of Hallow’s eve…. pour me another !  coffin- tender… stale black coffee with a lot of ice….make sure it is cold enough to turn my fingers blue…and I’ll thank you with a wink from my stitched and bleeding eye, if you are quick about it, I will tip you with a 1000 year old egg.

oh dear, oh dear, I think the fresh air is too intoxicating for me

Have a screeching fun day.

ON a serious note..Service is at 10 tomorrow... {Ancestors Day ceremony} by then, we hope to have tamed the brat in me.

Remember spread happiness today and always.

You have your own way of doing things and others have their way of doing things  Don’t worry about what other people say.  Simply take care of the task at hand

Good morning everyone, we are beginning a new week with more sunshine.  I woke up thinking about how often I am struck with the fact many people spend their waking hours searching for something that they already have.  Reality.  Think about it, we live it every moment of our lives.  The key is for us to be aware of our true selves and to take responsibility for the lives we live.

aug 20 Susan TanyaTake time to look beyond the immediate vista before you.  Often you will discover there is a whole new “happening” within your reach and in your realm of possibilities.

Life is a kaleidoscope, a myriad of natural wonders that the Universe provides in abundance for us to discover and enjoy.

Take yourself out today for a walk into happy spaces lets work together to make this world a happier place.  Share your smile with a happy heart.

Salad anyone?

tuna,avocado, egg noodle salad

Scallop noodles – 1 cluster, cook, drain and cool

Solid light tuna in vegetable oil  (99g)   use the oil to mash eggs and avocado

Fresh garlic stem*, thinly sliced (to taste)

Fresh crisp lettuce

Sweet red pepper

Green onion and slices of sweet onion (to your taste)

2 hard-boiled eggs

1 large avocado  scooped and mashed with the eggs

salt pepper to taste

mayonnaise 1 big tablespoon

Tossed together this is a great easy salad – other seasoning can be added as your taste dictates, ie, squeezed lime, ginger, wasabi…. it is your call.

Make this a day to remember, like a salad, how we put things together, the choices we make, all become a creation of our own doing…..

*garlic stems, I have only found at Asian groceries they are not chives, they are shaped like a pipe cleaner, taste is crisp, and can vary from mild to strong in taste. sold in bunches

PL Calendar – day 9  – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU

A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about.  An optimistic person will attract happiness.  A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.

PL Calendar #5

A cheerful greeting brings people closer to one another

Interactions between people start with greeting one another.

Take the initiative and be the first to open your heart.


A quilt is made by piecing pieces together, each quilt is different.  Even a quilt done using the same pattern, when done by another person, will end up looking very different.  Choices in size, material, colours used, textiles selected, like people, no two are alike.

A smile, a friendly word, listening with an open heart, make today another special day. Share an invisible hug, smile and say hi!

domingo, segunda feira

water colour 3.30

Sunday Monday – Happy start of the week everyone….

Bom dia…thought to start the week off with some colour.  this was a water-colour I started, it has advanced several steps since the picture, but.. that was the beginning or part of it anyway.  Blending, and marrying of different colours, adding texture, and different strokes applied with changing the brush. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a surprise.

Life is Art, (PL Precept #1) how we decide on what steps we will take, to address challenges/opportunities, will dictate the outcome.  We can either accept what we “see” or take creative measures to embellish or completely change what “was”

PL Calendar -day 2- Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.
