MCG demo 2

demo 2 mcg 5.2.19

Happy May 5th. Bom dia!

Another mixed media done for demo.  The idea with a demo of new and old products is to show artists, budding new crafters and seasoned expressionist  how to use some of the newer products that are arriving on the market daily.  Yes you an see YouTube videos but a video isn’t something you can touch, feel and  at the same time, have knoledegable staff who can and will help if you have questions.

I know that there are many who prefer to deal online for supplies, and if you know the product, and the supplier, have a particular way of working, and are not going to deviate from what you know.. then go for it.

My experience is that when I am in a creative mood, or am working on an idea, I want and need my inventory handy.  Part of the creative process in mixed media is to be open to new possibilities.  The demo -before- during prep.. sometimes, what is down could be up =^_^=   Abstract work, is lived in the moment.

demo mcg 2,5219The beauty of abstract mixed media… given the same products, no two pieces will come out the same.  How perfect is that.  We are all unique …  talented and beautiful.

PL calendar day 5    Start by thinking “this is interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it. From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come of it.

I took a chance, and brought them home and gave them some love. Love is a powerful gift.  Share your gift with the world. PEACE  begins within.

A reminder, if you are in the Ottawa area and want to see some amazing dogs, and mingle with a dog crowd.  Visit the market today for the special event, to showcase, our dog population.    games, fun, prizes, special, canine treats.

Happy Mar..17th

Velcro Guinness 2.14.19

day 17  of  Perfect Liberty calendar

Have clear goals and take appropriate Actions       – Always begin with a clear idea o what your goals are.  Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.

If you celebrate the wearing of the green, from our home to yours, we wish you a day of rainbows and golden moments to cherish always.

If you are like Velcro, he was patient for the picture, but much happier when his “duty” was over.  Our “babies” are constantly reminding us, that altho’ they don’t always understand our actions… they graciously put up with us.  Trusting that we will get over the moment soon enough.  And we do!    Cheers!

Wordless Wednesday -Achievement

VaughnAd_CDF

I am very proud of Steve and Paul,  their achievements with the dogs that they breed, raise and share their home with.  Our whippets come from their “home”.  They are so dedicated to their “family”. “Achievements” such as the ones that they strive for, are met only with hard work, focus and total commitment.  Main ingredient is LOVE.

When we love, truly love, unconditional love… it will reflect in all we do.’

patience

may 3

Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute.  And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.

Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t.  They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or  is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.

There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered.  This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them.  Until I actually  say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.

Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap.  They instinctively  know, that there will be no sharing.

Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily?  Are we considerate of others?  Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day.  Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.

Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync.  This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.

Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere?  Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.

Friday – Happy Day!

Pippa in backpackGood morning,

Meet Pippa, she is a female Whippet who lives with her human parent(s).  You can see that in her very short time with them, she knows how to handle them so that life is extra good for her.  I’m told that she is a very patient and willing model, just look at that face.. her eyes are wise beyond her years.  A ride to work in a warm cozy wrap with a fall coloured whimsical cap –    she’s got style.  What better way to get around  and keep her pedicure and paws perfect for her lazy sprawl on the living room couch after a hard day.

Her owner graciously allowed me to share her pictures, Pippa can be found on Instagram, she is a raising star in the “diva dogs” on Instagram    pippa_g_thats_me  Pippa was born, in the spring of 2017 and lives in Austin TX.   If you enjoy a smile from time to time, she is a whippet you might like to follow.  She already  has a lot of followers, the numbers grow everyday.

This is the picture that caught my eye.  I call it the Gatsby look.  Pippa is really good, if I tried to get Velcro or Keeper to sit and model, sigh, let’s just say, ” have you ever chased a hound when its got another place to be??”..Pippa you are a super model already, I look forward to following your career.  Your wardrobe attendant is going to be one “busy” gal.

You all know that this has been a very challenging year for me, I am so grateful and appreciate so much the kindness of you have shown “us”   The Thursday Door posts yesterday were just so varied and so interesting.  With cancer now part of our lives, we are home of course, much much more.  There will be no wandering the back roads, for a while, but I get to visit such fascinating places, and see so much through “your” eyes.

I wanted to share Pippa with you, because when she pops up on the screen, there is always a smile being shared.

Life is good, we are very blessed, the seasons give us blazing colours, shades of gray, brilliant whites and our views, stories and photographs all come together in a cornucopia of blessings, different for everyone, but there non-the-less.

PL Principle #3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

PL Principle #4  I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others.

“Do your best to live in harmony with the world around you.  Life will flow easily and gracefully  along with the current, gently caressing each adventure along the way.”  Q

Disco Monday aka Wednesday

arriving for some disco

the clan start to gather

the fun began

at Pacifique (SL) the music, the atmosphere, the friends,

a musical interlude, a nice way to end the day.

Ok that was how I ended my day, but the start was just as great.  We drove out to visit with our new whippet, here she is spending some time with her soon to be brother.  Who is being as aloof and distant as he can be.  Real party poop.

Keeper 10.18.17b

Meet Keeper, she is 5 years old.

Keeper 10.18.17cOK she saying, I’ve done my few minutes with big brother, now let’s do something else. She is a sweetheart, can’t wait for her to be home with us full-time.

There is room in a day to do a lot of things, attend to what needs doing, resting, and having some “chill” time.

PL Precept # 20  Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.

Sweet blessings to take you into the night.
