Amazing Response!

If you’ve been with my blog for a while, you’ve known my intense struggles with trying to get my art out there. It’s been hard, complicated and generally a lengthy process.

So, I decided i’d just take a chance and share my pieces of cat art in some of the facebook cat groups and the response has been positively amazing. Quite overwhelming in fact — and not in a bad way.

I sold 8 pieces of art in the last 3 days. I don’t even think i’m able to comprehend that this actually happened. It blows my mind.

I’m still trucking away at making more pieces of art but it’s takes time. So that’s currently what i’m working on.

New ART!

I just listed this piece of original art on my etsy store! Part of the proceeds go to help the cats in my community.

Please Share

Work is REALLY slow right now and I definitely could use some extra income..which gives you or someone you may know an opportunity to own some very unique art.

Etsy is here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/retrophiliac

On a much lighter note

These are my TOP FIVE favourite Cat videos. I figured i’d mix it up a little bit and infuse a little bit of humour on my blog. Enjoy!

New ABOUT ME video!

I’m honestly not sure if my microphone even worked, it was plugged in.. Hopefully the sound is okay for my viewers!

 

Meowbox Unboxing // Art Pictures!

Photo Update

My mood has been absolutely awful lately so I haven’t been able to get any words out. I still don’t feel like I can write anything in an adequate fashion….so here’s some photos of new things instead!

NEW THINGS as of August 27th to 31st

I hate going so long without an update, I really do.. So I figured i’d do a bit of a mashup of what i’ve done this week.

I set up my ring light and started playing around with it. It’s amazing how even the lighting is!

I couldn’t resist snapping this photo of my beautiful Buddy Boy. He is so nice!

I made a new piece of art. I wish my liquitex pens weren’t so streaky. I may have to do some additional purple layers on the background…. of course, i’m my own worst critic.

Made a video about new packaging for Neal Brothers! It’s one of my interests.

Squishmallow Review!

 

I think squishmallows are incredibly sensory friendly and a great tool for anyone who is autistic! They are squishy, great to hug and very soft.

Thank you Kellytoy for sending me these to test out and keep ❤

Travel with Me: Vernon, BC 

We concluded our trip in Vernon, BC. One of our favourite towns. The weather kept up with the sun shining non stop.

Our first stop was our accommodations, located in the country, we stayed in a tiny house on a farm. Surrounded by horses, nature and some more incredibly sweet animals.

After we got settled, we went to our very favourite restaurant ever: The Curry Pot. The owners are of nepalese descent. We both ordered dinner specials, I got the Paneer Lababdar and Justin got the Butter Chicken.

We went the next morning to the Vernon Farmers Market. There is a great variety of different things being offered, such as: crafts, food and even a prayer tent.

My favourite is the Crepe Bistro. I got a Nutella Crepe, made fresh right in front of you!

Our next stop was Eatology! Justin found it on Google based on their 4.6 rating. He ordered the Mexican Skillet, completely vegetarian. “oh man it was good!” is his very personable review. I ordered buttermilk pancakes. The coffee is from Oso Negro in Nelson. This restaurant seems like it belongs in Vancouver. It’s hip, the menu is vast and it’s hard to not find something to eat. The water is self-serve and also is really nice – no chlorinated taste (which I am so sensitive to).

We had a really incredible vacation and can’t wait to go on our next one. I hope you enjoyed all my instalments. Travel is fabulous for the soul and makes us feel connected with the world around us.
