The Cutest Meal I’ve Ever Eaten

From the moment I saw my roommate’s Hello Kitty waffle maker two weeks ago I’ve been wanting to use it. Today I finally got my hands on it.

And yeah, she’s got the toaster too. She’s basically the most awesome person ever.

Luckily I had a chocolate bar in my freezer so I was able to make chocolate chip waffles. We created a sort of peanut butter waffle too. They definitely were not bad.

I butchered the first batch but, I eventually got the hang of it. If I didn’t love pancakes and waffles so much I would say they were too cute to eat.

I’m so glad I finally had a free day without homework or studying, not only to make waffles but to finally finished a painting I’ve been working on and start another one.

A Time To Tan

Pale, fair-skinned, delicate, porcelain, glow-in-the-dark, pasty, whatever you want to call it, it’s what I am.

Every summer while everyone else’s skin is dropping a few shades after an hour of sun exposure. While mine shows barely any change in colour after a week at the beach.

It’s fine, I accept it. While the rest of you beautiful people have wrinkles and skin cancer in ten years I’ll be the one mocking you for not wearing the SPF 70 sunscreen made for infants.

While on the subject of beautiful people, my grandmother’s birthday is today. Happy birthday Gammy!  For her birthday I painted a picture of her from an old black and white photograph.

I’ve got to say, Gammy was a babe. And I adore her dress, it’s so cute.

This isn’t oil on masonite like the rest of my paintings, it’s acrylic on canvas.

A Gift That Gives Back

Name two of the best things that can happen to you before 12 a.m.

If you said have a Thai brunch made for you to eat with friends then getting a huge gift you are correct!

I love being home again and being able to spend more time with the friends I have missed so much. Over brunch at my friend’s house she gave me an easel and paints she’d had for a while and never used.

With the gift that she has given me, I decided to give her a few paintings in return. At the end of the summer she with be leaving for college, so these will be a combination of a thank you/going away/graduation gift. I’ve only finished one so far.

Since this is a food blog as well as an art blog I have to throw these pictures in.
