Call me a kid at heart...but my latest inspiration is all about Paris and Sweets...and so you see these toys just make me happy!!!
Hi Everyone!!! I am having a blast with all of my courses...but had to take a moment to share my special gifts in the mail...well gifts to myself that is....I love sweet treats....and I love Paris ....and most recently a fellow illustrator...Jannie Ho introduced me to Re-ment miniatures...well I though they were cute before but when you get them it is like opening up the cutest little gifts....These are my latest inspiration to create and be happy each day...I have a total of 13 boxes of these treats and plan on taking my time opening and enjoying them....The first picture is from the Pierre Hermé collection...holy smokes...these are so cute and so fun and so small!!! I really have a love for miniature things....

I grilled a thin Sirloin steak over the flame for added flavour....then sauteed onions and peppers....once the meat rested I sliced it really thin and added it to the veggies.....place cheese on the top and bottom and in the middle of the bun and then the meat and onion/pepper mixture in between ...placed it on my wonderful "FREE" grill from Dempsters Bread Company.....and voila ....this thing was so delish....I just had to share it!!!

I also noticed that this week on the "Created by Hand Challenge Blog" the theme is Favorite Backgrounds...and I have to say that I really love the way watercolour backgrounds look...the way the colours change and come together....anyway this is a background I just finished and will have to use in some of my work....hope you enjoy it!!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!
