I love winter, I am a child of the snow, but right now I am getting a little sick of all of the brown slush everywhere and would much rather be sitting in the sand enjoying the sun right now. Making sand castles and chasing waves is much better then soggy socks and falling on your arse.

Jeanette does some gorgeous prints of fish, which has made me want to try getting prints from everything, well not fish, Sky would probably steal the prints :p These are leaves from the park with just normal ink used and squished in my sketchbook. I actually really like the pattern of the red leaf, its a very neat abstract effect. Think I might print my hand next :D

Brrrrrr! It is freezing here!! -7C to -11C o.0 I think that is the coldest it has ever been in the 6 years I've been here. Yes it would get a lot colder then that in Alberta, but I have become weak about the weather now. No longer can I call myself a hardy Canada :p ( Man up, crack on and stop dripping :P >> Mr F) I really wish he would stop with the Navy lingo.
And yes the metal poles look really pretty with the ice crawling up the sides of them, but not pretty enough for someone to lick the pole. Why do people do that?

Mike Holmes when you need him? Sad attempt at a gingerbread house....I would not move in if I was a gingerbread man, I'd have to eat my way out of the collapsed rubble. Would that be cannibalism?

I need to practice drawing with my left hand more, just in case I lose all the feeling in my right hand. It doesn't happen often, but when it does happen its a pain in the ass and is one of the only things that really pisses me off about the MS. I can live with the brain farts, the limping, hell I can even live with injections 3 times a week, but I think losing the ability to draw would really drive me insane.

I've posted this pic before, but its the only pic I have where you can sort of see my 6th finger. There are pics of me in this lovely frilly yellow dress where you can really see the extra finger, but they remain lost at mom's place for the moment. As soon as I get a copy of them I will post them tho.
Me and my sister. I always had pudgy cheeks and she always had a big forehead :p
I have no idea when this was taken. I was under 5 judging by the shirt and the fact my parents were sitting by each other without trying to practice knife throwing :p
And even at a young age I was hiding from the camera :p
There is one thing I really do miss about not living in Canada. I don't have a lot of family photos, which is a good thing and a bad thing. Its great looking at photos and then having the memories they bring, but on the other hand there are a few photos of me in questionable outfits that I never want to see the light of day again :p
For more groovy photos head over to Cams blog :)

The tree is up, but we can't find the plug for the lights. It was around before I started cleaning, but its disappeared now. So the lesson learned is, don't clean :p

Haven't put our tree up yet. Its either going to end up looking ok or it will end up in pieces all over the floor after Sky attacks it :p
Apparently I'm mean and evil for wanting to put reindeer antlers on the dog :p meh, at least I don't want to dress her up as Santa Paws :p

I really should go out and buy a sled/sledge before its all gone, but Sky keeps wanting to play on the kid's sleds in the park, and I am not dragging her back up the slippery hill :p

Thank you to everyone for their fairy tale suggestions, lots to work from and I already have a few ideas going around in my head. hmmm now to get some reference material together...wonder how hard it would be to get people to pose in a wizards hat? :p

I want to work on my portfolio, so thought that drawing fairy tales from different countries would be a good idea. So my question is; what are people's favourite fairy tales? It doesn't have to be from the country you are from, any fairy tale will do :)

I apologize in advance if I am a little absent on commenting and here, have a lot of drawing to do so need to concentrate on that right now. :)

I don't use a grid very often, I like eyeballing a drawing, but I wanted this drawing of Sky to be as close as possible, so thought I would try to grid it first. Still need to fill in a lot of the squares, and I might just end up getting pissed off, tearing the paper up and eyeball the whole thing anyway :p
and the mystery drawing isnt Sky ;)

If someone can, they can have a print of it when its finished if they like :)
*if no one guesses correctly I will put all the names in a hat and draw one out to win at the end of the week :)

Now onto a curious kitty (don't say C.A.T. in front of Sky, She goes mental. No really she does. I think she wants a fluffy snack o.0), and some Xmas dragons :)

Those brown things are dried up conkers from the park. Not sure what I am going to do with them, throw them at the junkies as they walk by perhaps?
