Day Trips (Photo Heavy)

So my old car, a 12 year old Pontiac Montana (Betty the First), was finally sent off to car heaven. She’s been replaced by a brand new Mazda 5; which luckily for me has A/C, Bluetooth, no leaks and functioning brakes. Let’s not forget to mention she doesn’t chug $120 worth of gas every month (and let’s not even mention trying to drive on the high way with old Betty).

I have aptly named my new car, Betty the Second, so naturally I had to test out her maneuvering skills, mileage and Bluetooth capabilities the second I got her.

Here are a few photos from my day trips to various places:

This was the day I got Betty the Second; we went down to Caledon (lots of dangerous curves on those roads), we checked out a place my friend loves (she communes with her water spirits on the regular) and then checked out the badlands. Betty came home with bright red dust marks all over her. This of course was after our bi-weekly trip to Costco and Petsmart.

I think this was Jack Darling park in Mississauga, but I’m not positive. My friend and I had a picnic (a flask of Heering’s Cherry Liqueur was included), it was really cold that day, or at least I found it cold, but I’m always cold so really, who knows. It was really beautiful though, we celebrated my friend’s new job with Chocolate covered Sea Salted Caramels.

That’s all for my adventures, mostly I’m trying to prove that I’m not a shut-in. We will get back to our regular content soon, once I get some proper downtime to do some drawing.

Earrings!

My last post was on September 17th. I need to get back into posting more frequently, although that’s
hard to do when your life becomes unexpectedly busy.

There have been a few birthdays this past little while, and I’ve been hesitant to post photos of my crafty projects (ones I plan to start selling), but here are a couple. I want to apologize in advance for the poor photo quality, these were taken with my phone and while I was in a rush.

Sock Garters

2014-09-17 15.18.40

I’ve been burnt out from work (not having had any form of a vacation in almost 4 years will do that). After watching the trailer for Laika’s “The Box Trolls” I started thinking of knobby knees and sock garters. I am the only one who thinks sock garters are glorious things? Probably.

Have a Happy Wednesday!

Cars, Cats, Buckets and Bats

The title kind of rhymes, hahaha that’s awesome.

This is a little nonsense post to spam up your dashes, mostly to show you all I have not died. I’ve just been very very busy and stressed.

Firstly, to kick off my Halloween brain, I got a new clock for my room that I actually like (it’s really quiet which is nice), I believe it’s made by hand from the person whom I bought it from, which is crazy cool because I’m supporting a fellow artist. Drop me a line if you want the seller’s store. The bat swings, which is why it’s blurry here.

Secondly, a few weeks ago, I spent an awesome evening hanging out with an old friend, who is usually the driving force behind my skeleton girl pin ups. They were wonderful enough to join me at Hwy 55 for a late (really late by my standards) dinner. Hwy 55 is a 50s style diner, the food was pretty good, it was also halal, which was nice I guess, and I got a sweet 1958 Bonneville! It’s papercraft and came with stickers, overall it was an awesome weekend.

And now for customary pictures of Eevee:

She’s developed a love for buckets, the one above is the bucket my lil’ bro used when his friends challenged him to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, she naturally flung his shirt out of the bucket.

Below, the Eevee has commandeered my lil’s bro’s bucket for uni (that’s his stuff for going back to school underneath it). She’s been calling for him everyday since he went back, it’s really sad actually.

That concludes the summation of my past few weeks, I’ve got a lot of other work to do now, hopefully soon I can get some Halloween themed images up. Have a Happy Wednesday!
