Looksy Wednesday - Gretchen Mist

Omgosh. This is SO great!!
[[but then again so is ALL of her work!!]]

That is all. :)

Yum for One! - Foodie Friday

I love food. I love to cook. I love reading about other folks food related adventures. I want to be part of that adventure! Ha. Thus!! "Foodie Friday" is born. I know i generally talk about food related things quite often on here, but i will try [[operative word is try!]] to limit my love for food related things to Friday's blog spot.

Enter "Crunchy French Toast". Crunchy French Toast is something my mom used to make us growing up, and a food i still love 20 something years later. Essentially, it's french toast with frosted flakes on it, but it's SO MUCH MORE too! :D

I peeled and sliced one apple [i like fugi-ish type apples for this] and sauteed them with honey and butter and a smidgen of brown sugar. I like my apples al' dente, but you can cook them as long as you like. I put them in a bowl with a litte cinnamon and more honey if you'd like.

I then drudged one piece of Arnold's 7 grain bread in an egg with a little milk and cinnamon in it. Then dipped it into a plate of Frosted Flakes. I put the slice of french toast frosted flake side down on the grill and put more Frosted Flakes on the other side.

Make sure to cook the slice long enough that the egg cooks [i seem to get impatient and take it off the burner/flip too soon] but not too long to burn the bread.

And Voila! YUM for ONE! :)

Is there anything YOU like to cook for yourself?

Smiles and Blessings to you friends!

10 good things.

When i came across the "Good Things Daily" blog, it helped me tremendously! Whenever i can remember, i try to come up with 10 blessings. It's a brilliant way to stay positive and so great to read everyone's daily blessings.

I seriously HEART my new drawing!!

It's official!
I am seriously OBSESSED with PB+J.

My free sub was delicious, and [i think?] healthy! AND it fed me twice! How stellar is that!!
All in all, today was a GREAT day!

What are YOU thankful for??

Smiles and Blessings to you all,

BEHOLD! Nightly Doodle Greetings

ALAS, i have finally made quite a few "nightly doodle" greeting cards. I have many more to show, but for now, a brilliant sentiment, and a lovely way to send the sentiment. ;D

These "mini prints" are on this card with four clear corners so you can take the print off and frame it if you like.

Let me know if you would like any. :D

Smiles and Huzzahs to you friends,

Life..among other things...

Still working through my "self worth" issues. You see, it's funny...i thought that my issues were purely complication only within myself. But this weekend, i realized that they linger in my business as well.

While having a trunk show at one of my favorite galleries, i realized that i ended up losing money because i undercharged for a hand full of items. Which is quite silly. I wrote down all the prices, but when people approached me, i clammed up and blurted out a different [sometimes MUCH lower] number instead.

I don't know why i do this. I know i am not the most talented person in the whole world, but i do in fact know I AM talented. I just wish i let myself know that more often.

Do any of you battle your self worth? Especially those who are artists?

Ohhh yes i do. My jewelry, YOUR ARTWORK, they aren't YOU. You created them yes, but they do not SCREAM your self worth. If someone doesn't purchase or even like your work, it IS NOT a personal attack! In fact, it has NOTHING to do with you.

You are not your art! You are NOTNOTNOTNOTNOTNOT.

::enter dramatic sigh:: ;)

You are so valuable! I hope you know it!
Smiles and blessings to all,
Jenipher :D

Looksey Wednesday! - Yumi Yumi Studio

I was stumbling on Etsy's "new listings" broswer and found Aline's shop
Yumi Yumi Studio.

I love how many different styles her prints are painted it. All very beautiful. :D
Make sure to stop by and check out the rest of her work!

I hope you are all having a brilliant week!
Smiles and blessings to you!

A weeks worth of nightly doodles...


i have to admit it was bothering me to have both vertical and horizontal images, so i just posted all of the horizontal ones. :D


We have a pizza place here called "Lazy Moon" and it is SPELNDID!
The pizza is literally the size of my torso. :)

Guess what this lady is doing friends??

Nothing overly exciting happening yet today. I did make AMAZING apple cinnamon french toast FOR ONE this morning. :D I shall post pictures later. I hope you're all having a BRILLIANTLY WONDERFULLY CREATIVE DAY!!

Smiles and Blessings,

I want to go HERE!!!

Please someone decorate my kitchen to look like this!

Blogs are Scary if you have Feelings.

It's 1am.
I should be in bed....but i had the urge to blog. [[kind of]]

I've been MIA from the blog-o-sphere for a while now. Mostly because I'm dealing with a lot of things right now. For a while now actually...

...and honestly.. i didn't feel i had anything of value to say, share, bring to the blogging table.

Among many things I'm "working on" right now, I've been dealing with self worth issues for a while now. I've most recently realized that i just have to DO things, and not fear them. I should just blog, because i feel like blogging. Not ignore it in fear of saying or not saying anything gratifying to those who read it. Isn't what essentially when a blog is supposed to be??

I suppose [and I'm supposing not just for myself]] that it's somewhat intimidating to try and create a blog that shows your true colors. YET, one that INSPIRES others.

But how can i even inspire anyone if i, myself, don't feel inspiring/inspired?
I feel like I'm talking in circles. But you know what? At least circles are never ending. And perhaps if i talk enough then I'll eventually make a full one.

I hope you're life is a full circle!! One filled with happiness, joy and everlasting creativity!!

Smiles and Blessings to you my crafty friends!
Jenipher :D

Hardware Dangles

Cherry Runway Presents....

The "Steam-ish Punk-ish" Collection!

What do you get when you mix mini washers, clasps, springs, garnet glass beads and a miniature broken fork?

Fun earrings of course!!

These stellar earrings are few of a kind and are different enough to stand from a crowd while still being neutral so you can wear them with anything!

Earrings are approx 2.5 inches long and will come in a pretty green drawstring baggie.

Looksy Wednesday! - Claudia Pearson

I stumbled upon the wonderful works of Claudia Pearson a couple weeks ago and have been wanting to write about her. Not only does she have a very distinctive style, but she also draws food! And we all know how much that intrigues me!

I love how simple-ish, yet accurate her illustrations are! And i LOVE LOVE the recipes on her blog that she illustrates. :D

She also has a neato coloring book and calender on all the produce that's fresh each month.

Make sure to check out her etsy shop, and her website to see more of her beautiful works.

Fruit Head.

I call him fruit head. I think he's kind of weird, bright and silly.
