🐹🍯🎨 WELL BEAUTIES! WE CAN SKETCH OUR COOKWARE TOO.

Amy Yun Art

I haven’t been drawing for a while – I’ve been writing more often. Most of these aren’t great at all, but they enabled me to at least get some drawing in, even though I was “catching up”, which isn’t exactly a drawing a day. But I’m trying not to give up!

Beet Cured Salmon Recipe

🌊⛵HELLO DEARS! IT’S TIME FOR THIS “DELICATESSEN”. HAPPY MEAL !

Lauren Charman

This jewel pink beet cured salmon is surprisingly easy (promise!) and perfect for  entertaining. It makes a great appetizer for parties and you can serve the leftovers on cream cheese smothered bagels at brunch.

This recipe requires 24-48 hours curing time but can last for almost a week after curing, when made with fresh salmon and freezes well. 

Ingredients:

1 side fresh salmon, 1.5 to 2 lbs, skin on or off, pin bones removed (wild sockeye salmon is a great option but this will work with any salmon, or try arctic char)

Curing mixture:

Scant 1/4 cup sea salt (non-iodized)

1/4 cup maple syrup

Approximately 1 cup beet puree (from 1 bunch of beets) OR 2-3 grated raw beets

1/4 bunch of roughly chopped dill

1 teaspoon toasted fennel seeds

2 teaspoons toasted coriander seeds

5 crushed juniper berries

* Optional: You can also add aquavit or brandy to the mixture for a…

A Mongoose….plus dessert

🍰🍨🍦🍧WELL LOVELIES! LET’S HAVE A BREAK. IT’S TIME FOR DESSERTS.

Make Art...Magic Happens

Good Morning … I’m not sure why I illustrated a Mongoose, other than they are so darn cute. And, the food drawings, I’ve been working on a illustrated journal of desserts for about a year, I only have three pages left to fill. When it’s done I’ll post all of the art.  Have a great day and have some dessert!

ham it up and feel your beans

🌞🍴I LOVE THE PLACES WHERE SUN LET SPOTS OF LIGHT AS WE CAN SEE IN THIS WORK. ENJOY YOUR MEAL!😊

Jama's Alphabet Soup

“Breakfast at the Aloha Cafe,” by Beth Marcil.*

Howzit! You’re just in time.

I saved a table for you right here out on the lanai. Please take a seat and make yourself comfortable! What a lovely day. Can you feel that gentle ocean breeze caressing your cheek?

Hope you’re hungry, because today I’ve got soup! I would be very remiss if my first recipe of the new year wasn’t a bowl of soup, especially since January is National Soup Month and all.

Since we’re all about Hawai’i, I’m serving a local favorite: Portuguese Bean Soup. My long-time friend, Lynn, gave me this recipe eons ago, and it’s still one of my all-time favorite homemade soups. It’s usually made with Portuguese sausage, which is widely available in Hawai’i, but I’ve substituted other spicy sausages with good results. Feel free to experiment with your own favorites.

The recipe is easy to make, but requires planning ahead…

Molstad Residence, February 2, 2019

🎑 HI DARLINGS! WE ARE WRAPPED OF A LOT OF MOTIFS THAT WE CAN SKETCH AT HOME. THE IMPORTANT IS TO START😉

Urban Sketchers Edmonton

Although it was an extra-chilly winter day, ten of us came out to sketch the peaceful beauty of the historic Molstad Residence. We gathered at Juniper Bistro afterward to eat and share sketches under low light conditions because there was a multi-neighbourhood power outage! Fortunately, Juniper cooks with gas, so we were able to indulge in warm comfort food.

   Scott and Erica Richards’s dog Molly helped keep us warm.

Maybe because our sketchouts of historic Edmonton buildings are being shared around via my Historian Laureate social media, we have garnered a bit more attention. We are now being invited to sketch! Scott and Erica Richards, invited us to their lovely home: the historic Molstad Residence at 9633 95 Avenue.

Sketches by Yvonne Rezek

Edmonton realtor Edward H. Molstad and wife Addie, built their home in 1912 during Edmonton’s economic boom. The house is a stately two-story brick and…

🔥Paris heart on fire !💙

Hi folks ! I think that Colin’s work has more of memory and feeling instead of details, for that reason this is into our soul.

I had never heard from bells such a wonderful combination of notes as that from the belfries of Notre-Dame, and for that reason, this night I feel blue.

Nixie Briefs

🌱🐰🐰🌱 HI SISTERS! LET’S GIVE A FUNNY TOUCH WITH THIS STYLISH AND GENUINE PRINTS FOR KNICKERS.THANK YOU JENNIFER.

Thimble & Threads

I got the pattern for the Nixie Briefs from Jennifer Lauren Handmade back in April but it wasn’t until last weekend that I sewed my first pair. I figured that all my jersey scraps would make an excellent underwear collection.

I’m in-between size 10 and 12 and wasn’t sure which would be a better fit. So last weekend, using the leftover yellow/cream stripe organic interlock I used a few years ago for a top, I made a size 12 (accurate for my waist measurements, but big for my hip measurements). They looked great but after a day of wear felt a tad too loose for comfort. Then mid week, with this fantastic acorn print I made my BFF a top out of, I tried the size 10 and it feels much less precarious.

So this weekend I set out to use up all my scraps (perhaps that was over ambitious)…

More Paste Papers

💮🔘💠WELL BEAUTIES, IT DOESN’T MATTER: PAPERS, CANVAS OR CLOTHES ALL THESE STUFF ARE READY FOR GOOD ABSTRACT MOTIFS. MANY THANKS TO WENDY.

THREADBORNE

January and February have passed with me learning about paste papers. I am really quite interested in the varied applications of this genre – historical, contemporary, practical and just plain fun to do! I came upon paste papers as a medium because I have temporarily had to give up the exacting work of cutting and folding papers for bookarts. I was looking for a way to work on my art while suffering severe bursitis (threat of frozen shoulder) with muscle impingement in my Sword, Pen, Needle and Brush etc. arm…only a range of motion of about 12″ across my work bench and no cutting of paper…oy.  So welcome paste papers. (I think it might become an addiction, dear Reader…you should see my stash…)

I reported last month on various experimental papers I  made using corn starch paste and methyl cellulose paste as paint carriers. This month I was also into…
