Ask anyone what my "crack" addiction is - Maple Syrup!! Canadian - of course.
I'm like the cops in Super Trooper - often I can be seen taking a swig directly from the jug, always in my fridge -Maple Syrup! I love it! In my coffee, on pancakes, swimming with strawberries, frozen on a stick - Maple Syrup is my favourite sweetest thing on the planet...
then comes Cannabis!
Healing my mind, body & soul!
When Storm & I attended out first protest years ago we met a young man - he caught my attention because he had a little plant - in a little Maple Syrup can. I said Hello - we introduced ourselves and he later said 'hi' to Storm - before the Protest ended - he gifted Storm his cannabis plant. That young man is now working for one of the biggest in the Industry & I couldn't be happier for him - it's because of him & a few others - Tweed is the one Big Companies who'll be providing cannabis. No longer just 'medical' - why should they be? The times they are a changing!!
Big business is big business to think it wasn't going to happen in the Cannabis industry is to fool oneself. So - as far as Big business goes- I guess Tweed is the one company I like so far - I like the 'Canadian' feel to them- the people, Snoop too.
At this point I'm celebrating legalization in ALL ways, - I don't care who is doing it because - Canada is doing it! That's all that matters at the moment. Adios - Stigma! I'm thrilled to see many we've met the past 10 years succeed, they should- they are wonderful, caring, compassionate people... they deserve to be where they are because they have worked for it. I'm also incredibly fond & proud of my son & who he works with - of course. Above all I am thrilled & excited cannabis is going to be legal in Canada and people will have safe, professional options to purchase!!
This represents the best of Canada right here for moi!
Cannabis & Maple syrup! OH Canada!! How many days...... about 46 & counting Down!
Not long now- got your bong ready?
With TLC & THC
*thanks to Adam for the inspiration then & now.
Today I painted a Halloween tiki! Yesterday a garden tiki.. the day before a pink passionate love filled tiki! I can't get enough.. I put a piece of wood down, turn up the music, get my girls settled, spark a joint and let my imagination & pencil run wild! YeeeeeHeeeee! I love painting these Tiki!! I laugh at myself - I was determined to paint a canvas a day- who knew it was tiki Time? They are more fun that canvas imo, I currently have 3 hanging in my bedroom! I wake up, look over & smile - WAKE up to another CREATIVE day!! Happy to be Alive - Blessed that I get to stay home with my dogs, paint ART that makes me and others SMILE & laugh, I don't know what else I could want - well, perhaps the same thing on a few acres in up North in my own studio.. How will I pack the bluejay? ;)
Norm's got the 'Tiki fever' - like it or not- lol - I think he likes it- he laughs every time he see's a finished tiki - loved the 'first custom' - he remarked I really "caught the look & feel" of the male tiki in it. I'm glad because after he works all day - he comes home to cut out Tiki! lol & he is building a Tiki Hut display booth! Why not? It reminds me of TY booth days gone by... currently on #17 tiki -but that includes my other 'Tiny Tiki - "Hook-Em-Eh!" they are called.. what a hit! IF you show up the TWTIKI booth you can 'try before you buy.'
We played on the weekend with Storm and had several giggles - I KNOW they will go.
I'll be loading the video on Instagram any day of my first Purple passion "Hook-Em-Eh!" DEMO- hee hee . These TWTiki are NOT work.. they started with a funny idea, I am truly enjoying creating, thinking, giggling and excited to CREATE each one.. pure pleasure.
That & I realize I'm not thinking about any bullshit or *anyone.
I'm doing what I am meant to be doing.
The official name is : TINI Weenie Tiki '
;D Can you guess why?
I decided to have fun & a giggle with my first Tiki- called "the Shaman" I can not get the Shaman out of my mind for some reason- he's about to do BIG things... history changing. You 'meet' him here NOW! I wasn't sure what to paint 'when at that area' - should I paint 'a leaf' to make it 'kid friendly' - and I realized - NO- that is part of the problem. Men have penises- fact- we must talk about them and teach kids what is acceptable & not acceptable as soon as possible to avoid any problems in life. Help eliminate #metoo for our young children before they can say... #metoo. What better way yo educate than with FUN- and creating an opportunity for conversation - kids will think it's just 'simply funny '- because they are.
Sure enough when I finally showed Storm after painting the 6th, my own son said: "Do they have to have a penis??" LOL! (eye roll) so - you can thank him for the added detail of the TiniWeenieTiki Skirts - more fun! hee hee hee - if you don't want anyone to see the 'tiniweenie - don't tell them! Leave the skirt on- I'm not showing any TiniWeenies here! Hee hee hee - if you want to see you have to come see them in person. ;)
They will be seen on my 'Tree Videos' - how I'll be introducing them on IG.
'I'll paint a tini weenie penis on this tiki & ALL of them - to remind us we are all human and not to let our TINI Weenie rule our big heads. Male & female. The next thing I knew a complete tiki sat in front of me - from wood to Tiki - it took Norm minutes to cut it for me & he also paints the backs black & applies hardware & clear coats them to protect them should they be hung outside- but i don't reccomend it- they will get ruined in time - unless you hang them in a sheltered area- like in a covered tiki bar. These Tiki are good to go -
Hang in your front entrance hall to welcome your guests or in your bedroom to wake each day with a smile - I know.
The tiki who need one also come with a Tini Weenie Tiki Skirt - detailed with fun mementos (Provided by the clients for custom) I wire on to each one- SO- only the owner knows whats under that little grass skirt! Is it a big weenie or a TINI Weenie- No matter - you seen one you seen them all! It's just a Tini Weenie... no matter, everyone who looks at them smile- and then you cans see as their faces follow it down from top to bottom - a giggle escapes at the awareness of the tiniweenie. It's all about fun.
AS I create I sing, pray & play with the girls & I 'bless' (Ginger took her first dip) every Tiki & as I tie on the tiki skirt - The LAST detail in one of many - I touch that Tini Weenie & tell EACH Tiki:
Maker others Laugh!
Teach Only Love for that is what you are little tiniweenietiki.. created out of love.
#2 - I named "Tokem Tiki" to celebrate legalization!!

It's Easter weekend and there lots to do.. actually - it's all done! Easter bunnies have been made & decorated! I have company coming and they go home with a gift - homemade! Poppy is testing them out and they passed - no wobble - isn't she fricken the cutest!!?
Sat there until I lifted her out now on my lap as I type - Norms in the kitchen making sliders, Storms rolling some medicine to enjoy during a movie later with dinner- it's peaceful & I'm grateful. The house is clean, I've got a painting on my desk and tomorrow there will be Easter dinner at the table! Nothing too fancy.. Simple but good.
Storm and I hung out in the kitchen while he made 'picked chips'- noting the one in particular was a 'nuclear warning- I hope not- life right now is good.. spring is around the corner - I'm working on a few projects which I am very excited about, everyone is busy and I can't help but feel - still- Life is only going to get BETTER. F*ck Trump.
I apoligoze for not showing you my current project - but it's a work in progress and will be AVAILABLE in a month or so to purchase. I want to take this opportunity today 'Thank you. Weekly, I am asked about my art and purchasing prints or originals which is business & business is daunting - so I rarely sell or do anything about it- but some of you have become pretty persistent as of late - so I did it! I've got some things being printed in small numbers - limited editions.
Once gone - gone. No re print.. it will be on to a different project.
ONE is already planned for the next 3 years!
On a side note- I'm still dreaming about France- lol - Literally - and I don't know what it's about but this a.m., I was dreaming about a romance in France and I was with ... (LOL) Dan - Oh, my gosh I'm cracking up- Storm also had a good laugh.. I guess because I researched him bit recently- In my dreams I was with that 20th century cave man. Yes, in my dreams- I doubt very much in real life - either of us would think it was more a nightmare. It did cause me laughter first thing this morning and it's a great way to start the day - laughing at myself.
Well- there still a tiny bit to do and always painting to be done..
Have a Great Easter! What will you create?
With TLC & THC
Just playing with paint. :) & scissors.
Day dreaming about Elephants... wondering if I'll ever see one in the wild, probably not.
Especially not, not feeling confident for Elephants in the future or any BIG beautiful Beasts with humans like this in charge:
I do not understand why the large majority of humans who do NOT agree with 'thrill killing'
cannot stop the few who do. I understand less how the majority of humans can't seem to change the rules - which are harming innocent others. Gun violence, drug wars, violence against each other & child abuse... animal abuse.
Back to day dreaming & painting.
Focusing on Ravens & Totem poles. Totem Poles are Majestic.

I spied this empty container in the blue box.. Can you guess what it's from?
It was from a bottle of expensive, high end Whiskey which Storm enjoys from time to time.
YUK! I can't even stand the smell of whiskey but this container screamed - Paint me!
It was a surface which resembled brown newsprint with a gold deer logo on it... next thing I knew it was on my desk with a sketch on it.
This is how to give a bottle of expensive alcohol! Hand painted with TLC by me...
It was a short break during my regular painting. Recycle! Don't toss everything- get creative... this can be used to store many items - including a bottle.
I painted it for Storm... we use to say this when he was little.
Tonight were off to friends again for dinner, last time it was home made pizza which I'm still drooling over every time I think about them... I can't wait.

I love pockets! They are so handy, you can fill them full of love like in this card!
Valentine card # 3. I've really enjoyed making these cards with the intent to have others make them. It's not that difficult! Explore your creative side & I've mad it easy for you- fear free! ! I was sent an image from a young woman who made the 'Honey jar card in DE! It turned out terrific and she made it herself (without the printout) with my instruction, with feeling so crummy it really came at the perfect moment. Nice to see & it gave me a little boost - I had to make the pocket card which has been in my mind for over a week.
It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday - it took me longer with this cold' but I feel worse when I don't paint so I decided to try & then the next thing I know it was complete and I felt accomplished and ready for my next nap! lol This card was fun, make your own, use my template.. It's really easy to paint the front, it's more or less shades of blue pointed with a BIG brush then some lines with a finer brush and a bit of red. You would only need to buy 2 colors- because you can make the darker shaded by mixing the two to get a purple :D Below is the image containing the pocket contents!
Print it out, cut them out and put them in your pocket!
Have fun! - What might you leave out or add in?
I'd include a real joint for fun too- thats the idea behind the card you could add a gift card, stickers, cash - anything that's slightly 'flat'. I'm keeping this card! It looks cute on my desk!
See below to see how to make this card! Share with someone you love or try to make one for yourself! I hope what ever your plans you have a LOVELY day! & btw- Im continuing to make cards filled with love all month & all share another soon - I've been busy with some fun templates- wait until you see how creative 'You' can be!
The free download printable "pocketstuff" image is below!
Supplies I used:
Water color blank cards (and envelope)
paper for pocket goodies (or printed version*)
Print and glue onto cardboard first for extra strength!
Gouache paint: red & blue You can use any pant or supplies- I suggest red & blue ;)
paint brushes 1 large flat and one small detail.
scissors, white craft glue
Made with TLC & THC
!! I realize the condom was an after thought! I've been married 26 years people.
The condom was an after thought.. so just add the REAL deal!
Which is much better than the sentiment anyway! xox G
Nothing says loving like something homemade! Crafts, cards - so why should cannabis be any better? Giving someone a jar of your bed preserved home grown bud would be telling them you love them and then some! You want them to be happy, relaxed.. inspired - healthy. Here is another VALENTINE card for you to make and give - the great thing is - you could give anything from bud, candy, medicated cookie, shatter... diamonds -preyty much anything that will fit in a baggie'.
Below is the actual image you can download & print OR make your own from scratch!
It's not as hard as it looks - the hardest part was the painting (easy for me), *thank you to my son for the cutting work. I highly reccomend you glue your paper to thin cardboard or use a good quality 'card stock'- I buy my blank cards by the box (bulk lol) from DeSerres (Canadian craft supply store- free delivery & competitive prices) Water color quality, complete with envelopes... so when ever I feel that need to create cards - it's there! I'm enjoying this card making session- wait until you see the next.
Steps for the Mason Jar card:
-print out card on card stock or glue your print out to thin cardboard, empty cereal boxes work great for this.
-Carefully cut out inside of jar around edges *these steps are in the photos below.
Green slice Matt & cutter from dollarstore or staples.
-glue the cut out part of the card 'only the sweetest..' to the inside of the card- *make sure you place it so that you can see it when the card is closed.
-place a small baggie and glue- tape (glue would not hold on its' own) it as you see in the photo, both sides and the bottom, when the card is closed it should look like 'clear glass'.
-fill your card with TLC & THC!
Sign your card- date the back, put it in an envelope - pain on a few hearts to tie it all together, a bit of twine would take it up a notch ' Have fun! Think Love.
You can add cannabis/medicated for your adult friends/lover/mate
NOT medicated for the kids. Please take care with delicious tasting goodies.
The baggies could be filled with many creative ideas- I think it would make a nice packaging idea by the way for a dispensary, I know many don't have the creative marketing budgets some of these big places have so get creative!
*I purposely did not paint cannabis on this card - so a kids could make it for their friends (with some adult supervision) and fill it with healthy treats for their friends! It's all about
Have fun! I have one more card idea!! It's titled
You've got all I need! We still have time right? I love the creative side...
I don't go for this 'Valentines DAY' stuff- Show me love all the time not just one day of the year or not at all. It should not require a DAY on a calendar for anyone to express love to anyone... I will admit - it is a good time to 'take a chance for romance!' as many have 'Amour on the brain.
I hope you enjoyed this card - to the point of creating one yourself - if you do send me a photo- I'll send you a postcard. ;) The next card is a print out as well, one more before Valentines day so you have time to get your cards created!
Love is in the air! It's February and I'm making valentines! 'A little early -you might add.
YES! I have to make it early so I can share it with you - in time for you to make one too!
This little card turned out better than I expected- it made me smile when i was complete and - it actually worked!
Roses are Red Cannabis is green- this is the cutest little 'canancard game' I've ever seen!
Spin the centre & You'll see - who your Valentine Bud is to be! Hee Hee Hee
A interactive card - Let's Play!
Not sure how you'll spend Valentine day? I've taken some of the guess work out for you!
Give it a spin- start your evening with what the Canna Wheel suggests- heck spin until you sample them all! Once complete- I found myself spinning just for fun, Storm was impressed and gave it a spin too. The best part of this Valentines Day Card- YOU don't need a partner! Make it and 'play with yourself. ;) Show yourself some love.
I' have included the Free Download links below - click on the link to print it in color or black & white.
I painted my card on water color paper- so it is stronger...
If you are printing yours I do suggest these steps:
1. Print your card
2.Color your card
3.Glue the entire sheet to a piece of cardboard- an empty cereal box would do
4.Let it dry over night
5.Cut it out and assemble as in the steps below.
Supplies needed: Scissors, white glue, crayons, pencil crayons, paint & one Brad (found at craft supply stores & the dollar store- IF you don't have a brad' use some string with knots tied to hold it into place.
By gluing your paper to cardboard it will make your card stronger and spin easier. I have included the version you can color yourself & the colored version to print if you wish.
Come on Give it a Spin! Have some loving creative fun!

Sometimes I contact strangers on IG and ask them if they want an original (like I did with Holly & you will see who's next - I've offered a free logo to a young woman who is setting a lovely example on IG.

I saw it on my desk this a.m. and almost skipped this post- I'm so excited to get back to my Mushroom cow. :D
Step by step photos and a few notes in the images below. I posted it early so you will have LOTS of time to make your card, lol (I woke Storm just to film the video.. he's a bit jet lag but got up to do it for US' ;) I love my son) possibly even a few- I can think of several friends who would love this card.. but I think I'll keep it to Spin on a rainy day.. just for fun - Because:
I Love Me.
Made with TLC & THC
