I’ve never been good at photographing my daily activities, regardless of how exciting they are. Parties, birthdays, nights on the town, trade shows, conventions–I forget to photograph all of them. But toting around an iPhone all day every day means that some things get snapped. I don’t usually post photos unless they tie into a larger article, but that’s what social media is for, right? You can find some of these spontaneous snaps on Instagram, Vine, Facebook, and Twitter throughout the week, but each lazy Sunday, I’ll post some of my favourites here.
This week, I made some awesome tofu pizza, using hummus instead of sauce or cheese, with spinach, sliced tomato, mushroom, tofu, and avocado. Is there anything better than homemade pizza?
My dog, Paco, realized that being adorable is sometimes a messy business.
Khepri became the vet’s new favourite patient, even if he did leave her with a messy parting gift.
I fell in love with a pleated mint green dress that reminded me of a jellyfish, but decided to keep the memory on Instagram and not in my closet.
Prom season is coming–I never got to go to prom, but if I had, this would have been my dress. Seriously, look how perfect it is!
On 29 March, some of my pieces will be featured in a new exhibition. I was so excited to be invited to take part, and thrilled when seven of my pieces were accepted. I’ll be showing five gouache paintings and two cut-paper collages, many of which will be available for purchase. Unfortunately, I’ll be away for the opening, but it runs for two weeks so I’ll still get to see my work on the wall.
At least someone enjoys the schizophrenic weather we’ve been having! If you follow me on Vine, you’ll find tons of videos of Butts, our bulldog, romping and eating the flurries.
I also made the blog its own Facebook and Google+ pages–you can “like” or “+1″ for updates. If you’re on Instagram, Vine, Twitter, or Facebook, follow me! I’m always looking for new people to follow for cute photos and videos–Vine is still so new that it’s a little barren. Help populate it with me! Social media can be addicting, but it’s a fun way to keep connected and record life’s more memorable (or not-so-memorable) moments.
