Repost from @oyamalake_lodge 💜 my Soaring bird painting is still hanging out in a cabin with a lovely bear piece by @ameliluke 😍
Bees swarming our tansy patch a couple days ago! Even a wasp joined in the fun...And some cool moths I couldn’t get a good shot of 💜🌼🐝🦋 #summerbugs #pollinators #lovebees #beesofinstagram
THIS is the look I’m getting as I dare to have a treat in my hand that I’m withholding...how dare! #labradoodlesofinstagram #doodlelove #howdareyou
I meant to post this picture of my awesome flower! It’s off one of the succulents I got a couple years ago from @plantshopyyc - of which all four of them are doing fantastic I might add! #succulentlover #succulentsofinstagram #plantshopyyc #shoplocalyyc #shopinglewood
My one and only peony! So pretty and tough...considering it’s got the worst growing conditions 😂 poor thing. This year it managed to grow a beautiful fully formed flower 🌸

Had a lovely taste of the mountains today - old friends and old fave swimming lake = relaxing good fun 💜
Had the opportunity to host a painting party for some wonderful ladies at a team building event the other night! They all did super fun pieces and I had a great time at my last pre baby paint party 💜
Made me remember why I really love doing them 😘 thanks girls and nice work!
Came home from a week away to find some fun mail! Duckie helped open it of course...thank you #truenorthmakerswap for bringing me some joy 😊 Swipe to check out the sweet project pouch by Just Putterin!
My art will be featured at the Oyama Lake Eco Lodge this summer 💜Open House is May 27 and is sure to be amazing 😊🎨
Thank you Nickie for the photo!
Did some painting with @nickie_burditt this weekend at her beautiful Oyama Lake Eco Lodge! Stay tuned for more info on her upcoming art gallery set up!
Progress...but will it be fast enough?? 😉

Welcoming my easel to 2018! Can't believe it has been so long...💜🎨
Privileged to receive a package from Michelle at Textile Custom Linen Works this week as part of a maker swap! She does beautiful work 💜 Thank you Michelle! If anyone is interested in taking part of the next True North Maker Swap - drop me a line! Awesome! #truenorthmakerswap
Awesome night at @rawcalgary - so many amazing creatives. Here is a taste...
Real talk! I've been sporadic on social media lately…My month so far has mainly been compiled of planning goals for the year, sourcing inexpensive art supplies, trying to find ways to live off my self employment income and organizing/purging the house...you know, boring stuff 😂
I am in awe to those of you who can continuously take beautiful photos and write interesting captions all year round - it can be overwhelming!
I am excited for all the new projects on the go and ideas in the brain - I can't wait to share them with you all 💜💜💜 I just need a little more time to regroup ya know?
Happy freaking new year all you brilliant and beautiful people out there! From the bottom of my heart I wish you the best year yet!
Ps. At least I managed to get a cute calendar and daytimer to help me organize all the stuff - off to a good start!
Useful things to do with rocks: Go!
If you know me at all you know I've have had a lifelong obsession with rock collecting! Yes, it extends to beach glass, shells, driftwood… You get it 😂
I need ideas on how to use rocks in a useful way or at least a dust proof way of displaying them. Help!
Detail from a custom demo I did for a kids birthday coming up soon! If you're looking for an original party idea - drop me a line 😃
Icy -30 walk at nose hill today! I have never seen the parking lot so empty...but no wind was our mini miracle for the day 😉
Opening 🎁 on Christmas morning and what do I find?! A kick ass travel mug by Terre Ferme Pottery! And a fun bonus gift as well! I'm so spoiled - you are the best Kentia 💜
Thank you for helping make this day extra special 😘 From my family to yours...Merry Christmas!
Sending you major good vibes and love for 2018! This was a crazy year for me and my little budding business - I learned a ton, met some amazing and inspiring people and have so many exciting plans for the new year! I want to thank everyone who supported me this year - all the customers who booked art parties, bought art, knitting or requested custom orders 💜 I seriously would not be here without you - every little bit of it is appreciated!
Taking a holiday break but please enjoy a completely unsolicited Duckie pic to inspire that wintery festive feel 😆 🦌
Cheers to 2018! Christy
