It's almost Fan Expo time!

I wanted to make a post like this last year, about Fan Expo but I never got a chance to. (We got a lot of our information late and some of it was wrong anyways) Below you'll find the layout of the event for this year and it'll will be running from August 23 to 26.
Fan Expo is just less than a month away, can you believe it?
This will be our second year at Fan Expo, in the Artist Alley. Justin and I will be selling our artwork at table A204.
I think it's a pretty good area, I like that we're still by the main traffic of people walking by... I'd rather be nearer to the centre than facing the wall. I remember last year this one lady had a table facing the wall and she complained about it. A lot. I don't think it would stop people from coming to your table, but I think it would be boring since you have nothing to really look at. I like to people watch.
Another great thing I noticed is that we're very close to the food court this year. Last year the Artist Alley was against the far wall, I hope we'll eat a little better because last year was filled with junk food and rushed visits to Subway. Not that Subway isn't awesome. I love Subway! I plan on at least packing us some snacks this year so we don't stave or waste money on vending machines.
Anyways, I'm so excited. Ever since it started getting hot outside, all I could think about is this. It's just so fun!

Good Morning

I always try to catch a sun rise atleast once a year. They are just so pretty and so much changes just in that 30 - 60 minutes. I mean sun sets are pretty too, but those are pretty easy to catch. Also If you catch the sun rise in the summer it is so much cooler at 5 am! It's so nice. Here is an picture of the sun rising from a few days ago. I really like how it turned out.

P.S. Didn't notice the scanner was so dirty. Sorry about the weird little hairs and stuff. :[

Colourful Cupcakes

I made some colourful cupcakes about a week ago... don't they look pretty?! They were pretty yummy too. I realized I probably could have made two batches of normal sized ones, instead of making huge cupcakes. I want to make a colourful cake too but I don't have a good enough reason... plus who's gonna eat all that cake?!

This cutie is finished. You can check out the original here (and the WIP here.)
Also available over at Redbubble too. :]

P.S. I think it looks pretty cool as a sticker.

Nail Art 39: Pink and Gold Leopard Print

I don't know why I have so many pictures of these nails... guess I just liked them that much. Not a huge fan of gold, I always prefer silver more but gold does go good with pink!

WIP: Shy Raccoon

Whaaat, two WIP posts in one week? I know. Crazy.
Just wanted to show off how the Shy Raccoon painting was coming together. I couldn't help but make his sweater ugly and tacky, I think it's coming along nicely... we'll see how the fur turns out though.

Lame Park

Last week, after I realized my contract was done and I was free to do whatever I wanted... went on a walk with Captain to a new park. This park isn't super far but it isn't close by either. Lets just say that with the heat, Captain was already tired by the time we got there.
Waiting to go.
Overall the park was a huuuuge disappointment. The front of the park looked so nice. It looked like it would go into a trail, like a walking trail. Which is what I love, back in my hometown there were a bunch of walking trails through little woods near my homes. Anyways this park with a 'trail' ended within 5 minutes of entering the park. So sad. It had some nice flowers around it though... atleast now I know what's there.
It also had a cute waterfall at the front of it.
Oh, I also found this under a tree.
And here is a funny picture of Captain back home after our walk. He looks so crazy.

WIP: Heart freckles

Here is something I started working on last night.
I don't think I've mentioned it yet but I've finished my contract and the first two days afterwards, all I did was sleep in and just be lazy. It was pretty awesome, I was ready for a break. But now that it's been almost a week since I've had to work, I feel like it's time to get back into it. What better way to stay creative than to prep for Fan Expo!
So (I'm hoping) I'll be posting a lot more WIP and painting posts in the next month. I even got some new canvas too, which always gets me excited to start something new.
This also means I have time now to go develop all those rolls of film that are just sitting around.

Back to life


The one day it was super hot and I left this one plant too close to the window, the whole day pretty much. It looked like it was dead so I watered it like crazy and then noticed it was slowly coming back to life. I sped up the video a bit to make it sort of like a timelapse, cause I like it. I think it looks cool.

What We Wore: Birthday Cake

My good friend, Tania came over for a day and a half for my birthday last week. When she came over we did a little bit of shopping around and we ended up buying some new shirts and dresses! We took some fun photos on my actual birthday after we were walking home from having dinner with Justin. So I thought it would be fun to make this into a sort of 'What I Wore' post, you know...since we look so good.
Details
Sunglasses: Ardene
Dress: Katie
Belt: H&M
Bag: Pelle - Bentley
Flip-flops: Ardene

This is one of my newest dresses. I love it. I love the colour and how it feels. And it's so flowy too! I look at it now and I realize it may not be the most flattering dress for my body but I've worn worse...and It makes me feel pretty. So whatever. Plus I think the belt saves it, just a little. I can't wait to wear some of my dresses this fall/winter with tights and layers! We ended up taking some jumping pictures later that night at the beach, but with Tania's film camera. (Because I was a dumb-dumb and didn't charge my camera. Always have a backup.) So I hope they turned out! I want to point out my new bag my Mom got me. I love it. I've been needing a newbag/purse for a few months now.
Also, It's summer and it was mad-hot that day, so excuse the fug hair and facial expressions.
Details
Dress: Katie
Belt: Katie
Bag: Clairs
Shoes: Ardene

I showed Tania the Katie's store while we were out shopping and once we walked in she spotted this dress. I think it looks lovely on her. I almost went and got myself one too but I had already spend some money that day, so one dress was my limit. Plus I can always go back later for it, right?

Mini Instax Rainbow 3

Another instax rainbow! I guess this one can be a sort of special birthday edition, because almost all of these were taken during my birthday weekend. Long story short I had big plans on taking lots of pictures all weekend with my digital cameras (and some film) but each time I went out I would either forget; the memory card/to charge the battery/bring the camera. Good thing I had my other cameras on my and my friend has brought hers too which had flash.
You can check out the other mini instax rainbows here and here. :]
Red: Night-time-beach-jumping pictures! Hot Pink: Shot at the bar, Sneaky Dee's. Light Pink: Justin trying to take a picture of me but I was like, hells no.
Orange: A shot at the bar but earlier in the night, while we ate nachos. Yellow: It was supposed to be a picture of us three but Sean was cut out. And it looks even funnier because it looks like Justin's pushing him out of the picture. Green: Sean wanted to take a picture. :D
Dark Blue: One of the picture I took with Tania on my birthday. I like this one because she looks nice and I look so weird. Don't even look like myself. Blue: Double fisting. Light Blue: The days have been hot! Purple: Another shot at the bar near the end of the night, at a different table.

I also want to point out that I hate our scanner. The last set of photos I was trying to scan turned out so bad. That was as good as I could get them! (That last one is supposed to be purple, and it looks blue.) I just gave up after probably scanning it over 10 times and always getting the same result. Ugh!!

How does your avocado grow?

A while ago I started growing two avocados from seeds. Only one made it. These pictures are from a few weeks ago too, so it's actually a bit taller now. Maybe in a few more weeks It'll be ready to be planted in a pot.
Has anyone else every tried growing their own avocado?

P.S. Make sure to come back tomorrow for a cute giveaway. :]

At the Dog Park

We try to go to the dog park(s) as much as we can. We do end up going a lot more in the warmer months though and weekends are usually the best times for us.
This summer I found a fully fenced dog park not too far from us. The last time we went I decided to bring my camera with me. I can't wait to get some pictures in the winter time at this park.
My favourite shot!! This is super happy Captain. He looks sooo cute. Look at his faaaace.
I love all these shots of Cap running around. The first few minutes at the park he always has the fur on his neck standing up. Guess he's nervous about the other dogs, and probably super excited.
Look at that cute little dog chasing Cap. Look at the ears! Hehe, makes me really want a second dog.
I love this action shot. Cap deciding to turn around last minute.
