Pith + Vigor

What’s the complete opposite of a green thumb?  Whatever it is, that’s what I have.  I love gardens but can’t keep anything growing but herbs (because they are essentially weeds).  Anyhow…this new magazine looks cool enough to get me to go looking for the first copy regardless of the color of my thumb (usually pink from a stamp pad or something).

How I Start My Day

When my web guy asked me for my different blog categories, I didn’t realize I could have different blogs.  I immediately said “food” “life” and “art”.  But then I was thinking about the fact that the 3 are always intertwined.  And I want this blog to be about anything.  So, when I started thinking about food, I thought I’d share what I eat for breakfast every morning.  This is what gets me out of bed and makes me happy.  I have the same exact thing every morning and never tire of it.  Anyway, to start, here is my little rice cooker.  It can make a max of 3 cups.  I have a larger one than can cook up to 10 cups of rice which is great for a large gathering.  Many times, I will put the rice on and whip up a batch of curried lentils.  It makes a nice, homey tummy full for a crowd of guests. I would highly suggest buying a really good brand.  The one above was about $79 but it’s perfect.  I put my rice into it the night before, add water and set the time to 6:30am.  This means that the rice will be […]

Wahoo – A new website and a new blog!

This has been a long time coming.  My oldest daughter was my web designer for years until she needed to move on and explore her full potential (and make more $).  So then I scraped together a measly little website that was also my shop.  I’m not sure how I managed to accomplish it, but I did.  It was basic but it did the job.  Unfortunately, every time I had to go in and change stuff around, I’d have a huge learning curve again.  It was miserable and time consuming. Meanwhile, I started up My Artstronauts club and my old blogger blog (www.teeshascircus.blogspot.com) fell by the wayside.  I have fallen in love with wordpress (which hosts my club website) and recently asked my web guy if he’d help set up website/blogs for both Tracy and I.  He said yes and I was beyond excited! I want this to be my hub for everything going on in my life.  As such, I will blog about anything and everything that I find interesting, worth the time to post or stuff to keep you in the loop.  I will add new work to my Portfolio page as I make it and you can […]

Black + White Journal

This is a journal that Tracy and I collaborated on and is still one of my favorites.  We need to do more of these type of projects.  and we need more time!
