My family always has an "after Christmas-we survived" celebratory dinner :D
Tonight will be extra fun for me since it will be a vegan feast!

The menu:
Seitan with Homemade Onion Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Japanese stir fried veggies
Spinach salad
and dessert will be vegan chocolate cake and frosting

anyone wanting these recipes can find them on, even though I always customize all my recipes to taste...

My Pre-New Years Resolution

Argh. Ok I am going to post this because I am determined to go through with it: I want to go back to eating vegan. *Sigh* ok there it is. The reason I stopped eating vegan in the first place was because I had children, and just couldnt keep up with the work I had to do to make my recipes and simply couldnt afford it where I was living. I know these reasons are cop-outs but there ya go. So I now have two lacto-ovo vegetarian children and my husband who is willing to try anything who is also a vegetarian and my goal to become vegan and try to get them to follow my lead. I know that not many people read my blog but if there are any vegan moms out there who can give me some advice, please feel free to share!

At least now there are so many articles and blogs and info on the internet for someone choosing a cruelty free lifestyle--it may not be as hard as I am anticipating. We will see ;)

~♥~♥~On another topic--yesterday I donated 10% of my earnings from my art sales on Etsy to Blind Cats Rescue and Sanctuary :D THANK YOU to all who bought my art and I'm sure those kitties would say thanks (meow) too!~♥~♥~

I am now going to go e-shopping (is that the word for buying things online?) for some much needed food items that aren't available here in our area, wish me luck!

It was a busy weekend! I finished a custom painting of Zuma and a set of custom ornaments (two cute kitties named Hogan and Sascha). I have more orders to complete--I feel like one of Santa's Elves :P

Here is Zuma:

Doggies, bunnies and work :D

I just finished a set of custom kitty ornaments for a very nice lady named Joan. She asked for a tuxedo cat, a calico, a muted calico, and an orange tabby.

I am almost finished with a custom pet portrait of Zuma! I will post the finished painting here soon !
