We all want the same thing.
It is simple.
I'm excited! My new craft feature should be out in magazines soon! I LOVE to craft and with sites on the internet now - I have a hard time keeping up with all the things I want to make! I am trying to focus on FUN, fresh and affordable!
This one was pretty much - FREE!
What to do with all those T-shirts- some a little too manly for me - there are all sorts of things you can do and below is just one idea! Easy and fast I can't wait to see all the home made bags at the next expo!
I might even have a craft demo!!! ;-)
May 24 weekend*2013 at the Metro TO convention centre! I'm already excited.
Thank you to the compassion club http://section56.ca/
*for the T-shirt donation - even after I told him I was going to cut it up! LOL

How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?
- Dr. Seuss -
That is how I feel most days.
I decided not to get my botox injections even though I'm due (was due) because I figure the surgery will be soon enough and I don't want to if I don't have to. Unfortunately the past two days has me wondering if I have made the right decision. I wake up with my twitch ready to rock! Strong to the point where the pulling sensation can send me off balance if walking ;-( . So - it once again appears to be gaining control. God I pray this operation is successful. LOL- Irony - with the added stress of the surgery - it is pretty much constant. Not 15 minutes can go by with out one. I wish it was just a twitch - it is a mini shaking and controlling of my mind that I am very much aware of by the instant loss of control is - frightening. Not a fun way to spend a day. I am happy to say I am not drooling as much! LOL able to close my eye and laugh once again with the somewhat appearance of a smile -
I can not tell you how powerful that is! To look in the mirror and be able to smile.
Careful what you take for granted.
Other than that I feel great! I am excited about the craft issues! It is keeping me inspired and having fun looking for ways to encourage others to express their creativity!
I have drawings to keep me busy and sitting at my desk I have decided is the best place to ride out anything! Mental or physical ;-)))
I need a time out because my time between twitches & feeling normal is more limited and suddenly I am very much aware of every moment. Don't want to waste that time watching when I can be doing.
More and more older people are turning back to cannabis! Why? Because although old they are far from stupid! As we age we go to the Dr. and are given pills for our aches and pains.. they come with age for most of us. That is life, happy to still be a part of it.
Unfortunately, as we continue to age we are prescribed more pills for each ache and pain, sleep problems, stress, tired-- the list is endless. Chemical cocktails, add to this already deadly mix- the fact that we forget! Accidental overdoes is a common problem with the aged.
That does not just happen to older people- it can happen to us all when not feeling well or distracted. It is not a problem with cannabis. There is a 'home' in Isreal where Cannabis is handed out to patients who need it and benefit from it and because of -LIVING proof- it is becoming even more common. The next generation under the boomers - I was born in 64
are watching our parents being drugged for this and that. No wonder so many are turning back to something they KNOW makes them feel better- Still gives them a desire to live! Watch this short vid.
*if you click the CC box on the bottom you will get subtitles!
It is just one of many examples! It is NEVER too late to try and feel better and that is our right! Share this with your parents!
*Moderation. As much as I talk about anti booze- I do know several people who have always been able to have 'a drink'. A drink after a long day - to take the edge off.. relax, unwind with a glass of wine. A (ONE) drink. EVERYTHING in moderation! My husbands dad was well into his 80's and said a shot of rum- kept his blood flowing. One shot - that was it. Usually in his evening coffee. He died because of complications due to a car accident, it was not the rum - and he was by far one of the 'SHARPEST' pencils in the box. KEEP IN MIND, studies show that alcohol is more damaging to the body and brain than marijuana.
*the bong- Storm and I went to a great little new store - http://www.thekockydog.ca/
nice to not have to drive to TO. for stuff.. any how I spotted this bong (a giant penis) and had to giggle! I said "who buys this..." and Storm said -"NOT YOU!" LOL so I thought I'd have fun with this toon! Of course I thought of the sippy cup* my friend Sue has a photo on FB with her and this cup and it makes me crack up every time I see it. Life is about having fun and feeling good. Not work, work till you die. So have a laugh and educate your elders about Cannabis! <>< XOX
One Love. I have seen images like this and love them, more so the idea that they stand for. If we could put it all aside and see each other for WHO we are. Not race, religion or class that we belong - yeah, yeah, I know broken record... Oh well, If it has to be said a MILLION times every day - I will say it again- in HOPES that it will come true. ONE LOVE!
Looks like Scruffy did not win the Fido contest- but we sure had fun! We allowed ourself to dream of a mini vacation. Had fun drawing and thinking of toons. Had she won, the toon was terrific! You'll just have to wait till next year to see that! We will try again! Scruffy is our sweet little girl - LOL - who is even cuter since she lost a tooth (?no idea how) last week! Fido would have been - fun. We have fun every day!
It was wonderful to see all the shares and those votes so I wanted to make it official to thank everyone once again! She may not have won FIDO but she won the hearts of many - especially ours!
Today our son is 20! 20!!! Even typing it brings tears to my eyes. He is up and had his birthday breakfast and off to work! 20.
It sit here and I breath deeply and I thank God with every beat of my heart that our son is here and celebrating his 20th! I feel like a milestone has been reached! A 'magic number' if only in my mind. My son- no longer a toddler, boy, teen- he is a man.
When you are a parent of a child with a serious illness you take nothing for granted. When you are told your child might not be with you as long as you imagine as a parent - FOREVER- It can mess with you mind to say the least. So....
Today I feel like yelling a big "FUCK YOU!!!"
Fuck you Dr.s you were wrong! A fuck you filled with LOVE because I am so happy they were wrong!!!
My boy - now man is everything parent can hope for and more. He is a gentleman, handsome, polite, hard working, smart and determined to make something of his life! It has not been easy, Storm does live with chronic pain every day - always has and always will - he is an example to me and my husband, we would not change a single thing if we could. This lesson has been one of love that we are blessed to be a part of. So today I am beside myself! Everyday is special but today is a day to celebrate!
The day would not be right if I also did not say Thank You God. I have prayed for years and will continue to do so- not for a miracle but for the continued strength we all need to face each new day. Thank God for my sons medicine - YES, I thank GOD! For the plant he put here! A medicine that helps our son function, work, hope and dream and LAUGH! Some may still 'not get it' I honestly HOPE you never do. I look at the baby photos and now the young man before me and I could care less what anyone thinks. I KNOW why we do what we do. FOR LOVE. Happy 20th Birthday Storm! MANY MANY MORE!!
xox LOVE MOM & DAD ... Tequila, Scruffy, Daisy, Darkie, Jaws, Fluffy & Larry
Please plant the seed of Cannabis education. I can honestly tell you I do not think my son would be with us today if not for his medicine. Please share - You might be helping other parents- other children. xox <><
I am amused and can't help but think everything for a reason. There is a reason Storm was one of Canada's youngest to use Cannabis - I pray it is to teach other parents - show them there is a safer, less toxic option for their seriously ill children. A reason I am a cartoonist and am able to break into a market not yet discussing such topics, having my drawing shared all around the world- I feel blessed. YES, there is even a reason my husband DOES NOT like Cannabis.
I'm not kidding - he would rather NOT. Give him a pill before a brownie anytime. I thought this perhaps because he came home one day and ate (unknowing) 3 medicated cookies... but as he has explained - he has never liked Cannabis, even when he was younger. My husband recently hurt his shoulder and was give pain medication. He takes it and in no time is out in the garage at it as usual. I take a prescribed pain pill and feel like I am going to vomit, get dizzy and all I want to do is sleep. I fell DRUGGED on prescription medications. He feels Dizzy, can not think properly and can not function on Cannabis. So be it. It should end there. It should be about choice.
The only reason I don't have a problem with my hubby using pills (well I do- because I have researched and see just how damaging they are - not to mention addictive!) is because he would rather take nothing - so as soon as he feels better he stops.
We are Not Dr.s but we do not like to see our loved ones suffer. Tell the truth- who has ever given someone one of their pain pills? Even though they tell us not to. We give someone a pill to ease their pain because we love them and do not want them to suffer.
We do NOT give them pills hoping they will become addicted and it will mess up their lives. Unfortunately, that is what happens to many on serious pain prescribed medications.
So yes if my own husband is in pain I want him to try Cannabis because I know it is less harmful, less toxic. I make him sage mouth wash all the time - what makes this herb any different? He won't use Cannabis but, HE WILL RAVE about how Cannabis has helped our son until the end of time! He will tell people how he witnesses everyday Cannabis helping our son and his wife - he sees it. He is LIVING it and he thanks God for it as well.
