Feeling a little inadequate

Its blowing a gale outside.  A little bit chilly so I'm holed up in the old Studio, on the computer cruising around blogland.  Gosh there's some talent out there.  Makes me feel a little inadequate.  I decided to pull out some old canvases that I never finished. Those of you who know me well, know I've had these hanging around for ages.  But I've got to admit I still like them!  So here goes.....Here's where I'm up to.  Lets see what can be achieved!  Anything is POSSIBLE!  CREATE! LET YOURSELF GO!  Blah Blah Blah!

Real Life Cards

Just dabbling making some cards and so far I have been happy with the results. Splitcoaststampers is a great source of inspiration.

Cooking = Creating

I'm still continuing on with my little business, Gourmet@Home.  A personal chef service where I come and cook a delicious dinner party for you and your friends in the comfort of your own home.  I think this is a just another channel for my creative juices.  I love food with a passion and seeing people enjoying good food cooked with love (sounds Corny I know) in their own happy environment is just a lovely thing to do.  So while my little business isn't exactly a multi-million dollar conglomerate I am happy doing what I'm doing.
Allow me to show you some of the food I have just recently done for a Girls night in for a 50th birthday.  Tapas was the order of the day:
 Vodka marinated Kingfish Ceviche
 Arancini Balls on a bed of chargrilled capsicum with Garlic Aioli and Crispy Jamon
 Andalusion Style Pork and Garlic Aioli
 Grilled Scallops on Smoky Chorizo
Garlic Prawns

Again..... Predictable??

Just sharing a couple of little gift cards with you.  Not doing too much except cooking dinner parties.  I'm being lazy and not posting any instructions with these cards but I'm positive you can work it out, but if you ever want to know how to achieve anything here don't hesitate to ask.  I'd love to chat with you.

Now I just have to work out how to take decent photographs!

I'm back!

As you all know, yes its true, I was a bear in my previous life!  No really.  I hibernate in winter.  I think George was a bear too.  He loves sleeping.  Yesterday I finally got him to have a bath.  Smelly dog.  Do you think he was impressed?
