Introducing Running with Buddha.
Many of you might not be aware of my Hempy Stalkers.... probably because every year I am lucky if I can produce 10. This year only 8. Each Hempy stalker is made with THC & TLC & every year they get better and better. It’s only been 3 and like any other work you get better and fine tune it as you go along. The problem is - NOT a problem for me - I have a few collectors that come back every year, so in essence they are sold before I even display them.
NOT this year!’
I did 2 things. I told all, they have to wait until the EXPO is officially one before they can purchase anything and Running with Buddha is NOT for sale. I decided that with my ‘show special’ (More on that Wed.) 100 bags- every bag purchased is the only way you also get a chance to WIN Running with Buddha. 1 in 100, those are pretty good odds!
If you do not win you still get an awesome limited edition bag full of Happy Hippie stuff.
This way someone that might not be able to afford a Hempy Stalker can possibly own one.
My hubby is right now in the garage building me an awesome display! Just for my Stalkers ;-) Each made with THC & TLC! Here are a couple of photo of Running with Buddha but like everything else ‘she’ is much more beautiful in real life.
Of course there will be several available to purchase they are priced from $65.00 Up to $400. for “the Twins” if you are interested you better decide early...
Each takes a long time to make, almost a full year, proper drying and prep then painting, bringing to life - most of them guide me as to what they become ;-) I add little details, charms, beads, glass and what ever else seems to want to be part of Hempy Stalker ART.
I have had Running with Buddha on display in my own living room and it is going to be hard to part with. Not one person walks by and does not make a comment! What a wonderful way to start a conversation about Cannabis. Ideal for a Compassion CLUB, HOME. OFFICE anywhere! I have a friend with one on order after the EXPO to display in her store front window! EXCITING!
To me they are sculpture, art... that is what they are, NOT for Children. They are not toys. They are a little delicate but made to be handled, touched and appreciated for all they are, and all they represent!
LIFE - GROWTH and LOVE.
Want to see more!? See you at the EXPO and I will have a blog with all the Stalkers after the EXPO - sorry no point even showing them now, I don’t like to tell people “No.”
I read all the time. Every now and then I come across an article and think - wow I did not know that! That is what happened when I read about kids drinking low fat milk - the healthier choice. IT is NOT a healthier choice.. I read that they remove the fat - using it for other products ($$$) and all that's left really is sugars in the milk - making it harder for your body and actually making it fatter. I am trying to find that exact article but It was a few weeks back - no matter just GOOGLE. http://butterbeliever.com/fat-free-dairy-skim-milk-secrets/
<Just one of many!
I am not - nor have I ever been a fan of milk unless I have a warm brownie fresh baked and want a glas to wash it down. I am also not a fan of Ice cream. I want the good stuff if i DO and that means CREAM. Why do we let them play with out stuff? Our food our nutrition and our life? I am even less a fan of milk after I did research on hormones.
Please pay attention, I really would never wish my twitch on anyone. Dr.s DO not know what caused it or still do not know what is causing it. WHO knows? I am learning to try to live with it. BUT why take any chances?? This is our children.
Please look at some of the links below to read more on LOW fat garbage. If it's low fat don't buy - learn to make healthier choices.

Wow, this cartoon smacked me right in the head ;-) Awesome.
It started with a joke from my best bud Cathy.♥
I was stressed wondering what to draw for 4/20?!
The universal day of
Celebration for Cannabis!!!
Grown from a seed.
Made by *GOD.
(*original patent holder)
Medical, Recreational, Hemp, Food, Fuel..
It's the day and I want to say THANK YOU!
I have said it so many times, I thank God daily for this Plant!
Give us this Day our daily Bud... <3 Wow. YES, I read recently how powerful that prayer is; Give us this dayour daily bread, -not thanks for yesterday, or make sure I have it tomorrow. Give us THIS day. Focus on today.
.. and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and that ^ ^ ^ That simply put means ^ ^ ^ : PEACE, PEOPLE!
Religion aside... who can argue with those lines? How else are we going to get ahead, clearly WAR is not the answer! Thank you Marvin, now in my head for the rest of the day.
People all around the world who suffer over a plant. A plant less toxic than many others, proven helpful to ease pain, yet illegal and lives destroyed because of it.
WTF? O.M.God. How disappointing.
A PLANT. While others rape, kill, abuse, terrorize, suffer & starve needlessly...
enough with the bullshit distraction.
FOCUS on the REAL problems at hand.
Rise Up people! Speak up! <3 Celebrate this Plant! Let it be a symbol of change.
It all starts with a SEED!!! Life.
So.. Yes! Give us this Day our daily bud, and thank you Lord for it!
I do! Everyday! Keeping the Love of my life happy - How could I not give thanks?
Celebrate 4/20, Spread Peace and Love !!! - there are already enough assholes doing the opposite;-)xox <><
Tomorrow is the BIG day! Cannabis will be celebrated all over the world! What started as a time for a bunch of guys to meet to smoke some 'marijuana' at 4:20 everyday , has turned into a world wide celebration! On April 20th - 4/20.. People all around the world unite and light up! AWESOME!
At first I thought it was 'neat' but then to see it grow and share! People get together to share, hang out, talk, laugh, educate and stand up for something they believe in!
Medicinal and recreational, the crimes against Humanity regarding this plant are shameful. Every year it grows larger, parades, marches, sit -in's & MORE! Think about it... When else do they do this? Not enough times I'm afraid. We should have a world wide NO GMO day! Or Celebrate the children day and stop abuse!
I was asked to post a cartoon early at 7:00 p.m. my time - because it is April 20 on the other side of the world already! ;D Yes, I will admit in my small mind, I did not think of that at first! How many realize the problems regarding cannabis are all around the world? Some people even die because of it.
I do! I have been educated! I plan on doing what ever I can to help educate others!
If it is as simple as drawing a cartoon that will get some attention, create a curiosity...
I have another new toon to post tomorrow a.m. ;-)
Have a great time all who plan on doing something special for 4/20! Remember to do it 'peacefully' < something asscoiated with pot smokers, and I'm fine with that!
Stand up for what you believe in! Why else are you here?
"Where's the scale?"
My son asked... “...skelator” as he loving calls me, reminding me I need to eat. ;-)
I threw it out... I've stressed over that piece of *&^% for far too long in this life time! Before I was always on it, and all it did was go up! Every morning I’d get on ... weighing myself, worried about the size of ‘my ass & gutt’ both of which I hated for years. O.K., I will say looking back... I was too heavy. I was usually around 180 - 210, I’m 5’6”. I see photos of myself and think - OMG!? WAS I that big? I did not think I was that big, when I was there.
Then, I was on it all the time lately with the opposite! Every morning stressing over weight I lost! WTF! LOL
When I get to 115 I panic. I know I look too thin, I’m use to voluptuous
.. I had curves. ;-) So I thought, forget this! I tossed it! “Chucked it!” (Thank you Candice, a post she made on FB, a while back).
All kidding aside, I hate a bony ass! Poor Santa - I get it! ;-) I feel my bones when I sit on a hard surface. I miss my bum! The thing is I want to get healthy. So I am eating BETTER (JUST say NO to GMO!) and can’t seem to gain weight but I feel better! ;-)) So today I made Kale chips - I tell you I was thinking, I’m more addicted to these kale chips than cannabis! My friend Theresa introduced them to me. I don’t have a dehydrator so I make them in the over and it is a bit of work as I have to keep going and turning them. But it is worth it in IMO.
I also have to say, I was sent a beautiful gift, more than the person realizes I bet. Honey. Medicated honey, from a friend I don’t take medibles from people I do not know. I have the best appetite with it! So does Storm!
You know it’s not true! You don’t always get the munchies - I think that it’s a frame of mind. If you naturally always get the munchies that will only heighten it.
I have eaten more in the past few day in a long time and I am craving all the good stuff ;-) Like Kale chips and nuts.
Oh, I also made - homemade ‘almond joy’ today! I saw on PIN.
NOM NOM NOM
Click here for recipe: http://vanillakitchen.blogspot.ca/2009/04/coconut-truffles.html
The Kale chip recipe, as from my friend Theresa also below.
I do them in my oven at 150 and go down every hour and turn them when they start to crisp up I eat! LOL - They have trouble making it to a bowl! Really! TRY them!!
Either way - Glad I chucked that metal menace! It ruled for far too long! I shall let my body be my guide and love me how I am. Every inch! I hope to get my bum back too.. well at least 1/2 of it’s former glory. LOL <>< xox
I'll admit I thought you could get high licking the toad.
I did a cartoon about it a while back & someone educated me on the facts.
I am so glad he did because I find it really funny that you don't lick the toad you milk it.
I have another toon already in the works.
What is a drug?
There will always be a drug. We can't ban, prohibit or kill off everything that is. To say Cannabis is one of the most dangerous, is just lies.
Just like I was told not to lick toads!
Not that that was ever a concern of anyones. I was also told 'not to eat the little black berries- they would make me sick and die,' and I never did. I was told not to drink too much - but did time and time again.
I am ALSO sure at some point, I was told that smoking marijuana was going to fry my brain. My brain feeling a little fried these days, the only thing that seems to help me is Cannabis! Thank God for small miracles.
It is a small miracle on this planet FULL OF PLANTS, that can make us feel better or poison us. I read in places where few plants grow - like Alaska - the people there would 'get high' by air deprivation, and spinning. Cannabis is safer.
Where there is a will there is a way.
Just like people creating bongs out of apples and pineapples.
Time to stop treating people like criminals, educate them. It is human nature/desire to alter the brain and mood, some will learn how to milk a toad - me... no.
I will stick to Cannabis, perhaps a buddha beer from time to time.
Moderation people ❤❤❤
We are talking and planning garden!
We are thinking, healing herbs and healthy vegetables! I have been searching PIN - ton's of fantastic gardening ideas. Tips and tricks!
How to attract butterflies!
I plan on spending as much time as possible in my garden this year I have even researched plants for by the pool.
Grow! Live and eat off your own land if you can.
It is not easy - nothing in life is. It is HEALTHIER!!!
I am so excited! My project for this Easter weekend!
Tomorrow is Good Friday and I am taking the day off to think, reflect on life!
New life and hope in a seed... Tomato and Mustard.
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
I believe that we must give thanks.
Every day, all the time.
I wake up and I say thank you. Really, I did not use to.
When I woke up and never had a problem with my health,
it never occurred to me to say: Thank you.
Now with each new day I am given - I say, thank you.
Yesterday was a very bad day. I have to learn to listen to my own body and do what it says like rest, relax and sleep... when it tells me to stop - I have to learn to stop, take a break.
My pain had me in tears and in bed on and off though out the day. My twitch never stopped, I caved and curled up under a blanket for most part of the day. Both my guys aware, left me pretty much alone. I was not in a very good mood by the end of the day...
not miserable - simply exhausted. I did draw the above cartoon.
I force myself to draw everyday.
I am thankful to be able to sit and draw. I will use it to thank people.
The little worms are: Hear no, See no and Speak no...
something else I try to practice daily.
If you are here and still breathing, heart beating - that is reason alone to
Say it now! Out loud! I am thankful to be here!
I saw Brave Mykayla mom's has a new tattoo...
"With every heart beat there is hope." ♥
We watched an interesting doc. the other night, I was watching it and the guys joined me at some point. It was called: Food Matters http://www.foodmatters.tv/
We watched it on netflix and it was awesome.
We are juicing most mornings and they don't always taste so great - especially the kale BUT - They taste better than medicine, they taste better then sick!
I will say I made kale chips and LOVED them - 250 in the oven for 30-35 min.s
Rubbed in olive oil and a bit of lemon seasoning - YUM!
Must get more Kale tomorrow. Watch the documentary. It is informative.
Do you want to be healthy? I WISHED I had seen it an listened years ago!
I will admit I have had an exhausting week leaving me thinking... is this as good as it gets?
Is the slow to heal excuse just that ...
I have decided to do what I love best draw and paint.
I smoked a cigarette. Once. Thank God I hated it and became very sick. Never touched it again. I find it incredibly frustrating to witness the addiction that people have with cigarettes. First thing in the morning and they NEED a SMOKE. I know people that wake and bake - start the day with Cannabis - but it is a desire
not a NEED many say - why not - gets them going!
Much like people have their morning coffee.
It is 8:19, my coffee on my desk, Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
- I will wait a bit before I medicate, I usually like to get up and get something in me see how my arthritis & twitch are and take it from there. ;-) After my surgery for months the very first thing I did was vaporize. The pain gone, twitch tamed - It helped me REST, relax and forget about he fact that I just had surgery and could feel my brain rattling around.
How is this still happening? Cigarettes KILL - LOOK it up! Prove me wrong!!!
A slow painful death. Cigarettes are LEGAL and Cannabis is NOT?
There is NOT one death attributed from Cannabis alone - THEY cannot prove it causes cancer - as a matter of fact they seem to find the same over and over - that the opposite is in fact true. Does Cannabis actually help counter act the damages of Tobacco?? YOU tell me! On my Cannabis education page there is a very education Doc. Link http://www.georgiatoons.com/cannabis-education.html
- several... take the time, educate yourself and then tell me, why is the one that kills legal?
I have one word that comes to mind...
Genocide. And the 'group' is humanity[G]enocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

"This is a country where, as soon as a visitor steps off the plane, he is bombarded with cigarette ads on billboards and logos; and where, as "2020" found out, there is more than one "smoking baby."
Second-hand smoke is harmful for everyone, but it’s especially harmful for babies and children. Second-hand smoke can cause ear infections, breathing problems, SIDS, and serious diseases in kids. Kids deserve special protection against second-hand smoke.
There are some 4000 known chemicals in tobacco smoke; at least 250 of them are known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer in humans. Tobacco smoke in enclosed spaces is breathed in by everyone, exposing smokers and nonsmokers alike to its harmful effects. http://www.who.int/features/qa/60/en/index.html
I cannot find any such stats. backed up by facts, on Cannabis smoke.. hmmmmmmmmmmm......
