First world problems! Watching Cupcake Wars and am now craving cupcakes. Knowing I don’t have much in my kitchen, I look for a “from scratch” recipe online. Then I realize that I only have 3 cupcake liners and no cupcake tin for baking. Now searching cake in a mug single serve microwave recipes and realize now that I don’t have a microwave. WHAT TO DO

SO, since I desperately need to go grocery shopping the cupcake is gonna be a

CINNAMON BLUEBERRY COCONUT POPPY SEED CUPCAKE …

Pics below of the daunting task:

All kinds of issues, I’m not even posting the recipe it was so ridiculous!

The original called for the items on the left which I did not have,
on the right is what I used as substitutes!

Vegetable Oil – Olive Oil
Milk – Water
Cocoa – Cinnamon
Extras – Coconut/Poppy Seeds/Blueberries

True life episode of Chopped or something…
I extremely enjoyed the challenge and the finished product
but I would also eat anything if I was hungry enough!

Here is the homemade healthier recipe we’ve been using!

Smoothie Base
1 Ripe Banana
Frozen fruit (Strawberry/Banana/Pineapple/Mango, can sub mixed Berries)
Chia Seeds soaked in Apple Cider
Almond/Coconut Milk
Blueberry Coconut Yogurt
Agave/Honey (whichever you prefer although I don’t think either is necessary)
Strawberry Protein Powder

For a thicker consistency you can blend some ice into the smoothie as well– These bowls have been my favorite thing in the morning and even a snack/dessert later in the day 🙂 These recipes are great because there is no dairy in them which means I can eat as much as I want (guilt free on that part)! Also eliminated the coconut oil, almond butter, and peanut butter to cut some of the calories.

Toppings
Granola (we used Bear Naked, V’nilla Almond)
Sliced Almonds
Sliced Strawberries
Sliced Banana
Goji Berries
Coconut flakes (Bob’s Red Mill)
Dash of Cinnamon

Pictures below of four different bowls >> Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I often ponder the accessibility of my art.
How can it be recognized? Where has it been shown?
Public art, whether it be signs, murals, or graffiti
reach masses on the daily becoming subliminal.
Graffiti in the forms of stickers seem fast.
Easy, risk free… Keep your peepers peeled!

Need this. Afraid I’ll just be signed up for more emails from the site that’s supposed to help me disconnect from the randoms. Sounds like a good idea though…

Last night I decided to do some late night spray painting.
It’s not really what you think, although that’s a lot of fun too. I have some oldish Nike’s from who knows when that definitely had that grunge look. While I do want to stock up on some new kicks (maybe when I get to go to the Nike employee store *hint hint* *cough cough* *wink wink*) I thought I’d coat these oldies in a fresh layer of paint, or two. I had originally planned a black and gold design but after seeing the shine pick up on the pleather parts I knew I had to go all in.

The paint I used I talked about in my previous blog post, Valspar brand– and I can’t wait to use this for my other non-shoe projects in the future. I didn’t think to take a before pic of the shoes because they were a bluish/greyish/white-ish– so anywho, here are a few of the afters! I’m still trying to decide if I should spray the bottom white like the new Nike Air Max in the photo below. I might just have to try them out as is first…

Update J2F

Mid Sept/Oct I took a little break from drawing.

I found that my hand was needing a rest from the detailed designs I was creating.
So, I embarked on another endeavor, which was creating a dress out of completely recycled/recyclable objects!

Here is the result!
