Happy Thanksgiving

Good Afternoon all, I had to remind mom to post today.  She's been busy in the kitchen with my boys cooking the rest of the meal.  I'm snoopervising from my play roasting pan.  Mom gave it to me years ago because I stay out of her way when she's cooking cause I like to lay in it.  We wanted to wish our readers a Happy Holiday. We are happy to have everyone read our blog and comment cause without readers we wouldn't be here.  For those of you wondering if  I'm going to get any turkey, mom said no cause the fella before me got sick eating people food.  So I got canned turkey cat food.  Not to worry I tried to open a bowl of chocolate chip cookies with my paws. Mom caught me and yelled at me.  Well back to snoopervising Zen Hugs and Purrs.

Caturday Art-Paint Party Kitty

Good morning everyone,  sorry didn't post last weekend.  We had storms and the wifi was just not happening.  Mom was able to get this one done and we are sharing at Caturday Art at Athena/Marie's Art Hop.  We played in our two favourite programs picmonkey and pizap.  Mom always finds new and different ways to make my bad photos into art.  I was playing with boy when mom took these photos.  He loves to tease me but I get in some good licks too.  Mom's getting ready for the Big Bird Cooking day.  Maybe I'll get some or I can steal some when no one's looking.  Have a great weekend and happy good eating.

                                            Used paint and tranquility plus increase exposure

                                                    overlay in pizap and added flowers

Holiday Pumpkin Pancakes

Good Afternoon dear readers,  I'm a little late with this recipe.  Computer had issues with the storm this weekend could not get signal to work.  So sorry no cat art photos this past week will make up for it later.  Kids of course will be home for the holidays.  Time to figure out a special breakfast for everyone to enjoy.  Since pumpkin is the go to Holiday traditional food, I wanted a breakfast recipe.  We enjoyed the Christmas holiday banana pancakes so much I wanted to try it with pumpkins.  So I played with the original recipe and here's what I came up with so yummy and delicious.  Your kids will say it smells like Christmas.

1 cup pancake mix
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup pumpkin puree

Mix up first 5 ingredients and then blend in pumpkin until smooth.  Add tablespoon oil to pan, warm up frying pan and cook until golden brown.  Serve with whipped cream and syrup.

here's the banana pancakes in case you want to try them:

Why not serve breakfast in bed with one of these lovely serving trays.

Crafting Haul-Tuesday Morning

Good morning dear readers,  I had a chance to check out Tuesday Morning the other day.  I scored some Julie Balzer stencils for $1.99 each.  They are really nice and easy to use in your art journals.  They had a lot of other nice art supply stuff other stencils and markers.  So if you have a crafter or an art journalist in your life these would make great stocking stuffers.  Check them out soon.

I have played with them a little but the face I tried to put on the page did not turn out so will not be sharing this right now maybe later.

My First Face Drawing

Good morning dear readers,  I've been trying to learn how to draw faces by watching YouTube videos.  I think I have a good start on getting it right, but please bear with me I'm still a beginner.  I've been watching the Dina Wakley video and others.  I love using the grid method this lets me get a handle on drawing the faces.  Not sure how to go about painting the faces without messing up.  Would love some pointers so please let me know.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated.  If you haven't taken the plunge her video is really easy to get started on drawing so check it out.
