When Babies attack.

So my daughter decided it would be awesome to poke me in the eye. After she had been up all night slept 3 hours then woke up wide awake..While I  try to sleep a bit and let her play on the floor. She gets up on the bed I literally open my eyes STAB. Yep good times.  I am in pain and cannot open either of my eyes tears pouring down my face I finally open my eyes to see her looking at me weirdly and starts to smile. I am completely freaking out. I get up look in the mirror see blood... "Shoot me in the face I am going to be a bloody pirate! Eye patch here I come... " I call my mom she gets here get us ready and off we go..

She takes me to a walk in clinic. I did not wait long and then my Doctor walks in. He was my maternity doctor. Dr. Mourai I love him.. He has such dry humor.. It gets me everytime. He puts some numbing drops in my eye. Then some dye and shines a light. No hard core scratch on the retina but it was hella close. I was lucky! The whole time I was sitting there and thinking this man has had his hand up my va lay ho.. It made my day.. heheh man. He told me I was looking good ..Yay. What a day.. This is also the first time baby will be away for 2 days. I am kinda not ready but am. I have a ton of shit to do too.

One of my friends from my Value Village days ask to paint her a painting. I am excited.. She wants me to paint her wonder woman. I am really excited for it really. I would have never painted her. She wants a frame and everything. The one I have is 12x24. Its probably my favorite size to paint. So it makes it easier. I am going to sketch out examples for her.

 I have been crazy busy lately! Trying to get everything done is crazy. I need to keep up with this blog.. I have done a lot of new paintings the last few weeks.  I did Breast Fest which ended up being a bust! The organizer totally did not advertise as much as he should let alone it was on a bad weekend... Warped tour other shows and Festivals.. It was all just blah. i made like $30 off of Little old ladies buy my Eye Glass keeper on-ers. I hope I have a table at another festival but I have not heard back ...But It should be better due to paying for a table and not just showing up.. So Paintings.. I painted Snow White awhile ago. I love her. She is 16x 20. Nacho man was from my childhood. So I had to paint him ..He is 18x24 and even had a theme song.. I wish I could get them both a nice big gold frames.

This loverly lady I painted for my Dad for his Birthday.. Its a Blind Faith album cover. Its something I always remembered seeing as a kid.. Plus he really likes it.. I think I officially made my Papa proud. He keeps hounding me to set up my Google+ I just might tonight.   
I painted this one last week I am in love with her shes 8x10 but still great!!! Now I am off to eat hella late. Im starving after my 45 mins of roller skating.. Woot.

I am a dealer at Breast Fest its a charity event thats happening Aug 13th. I am trying to finish as much as I possibly can before then. All the while I sold 3 painting. Im very happy about that. I redid  my Facebook  page so its easier to find things. I also submitted some of my art to Hi-Fructose *Fingers crossed* I hope someone up there loves me. 

Olivia is standing and is crazy trying to walk. Shes not even 8months yet. She is going to be a crazy early walker... I have a feeling.. My house has piles of pillows blocking the dinning room area ..AKA my studio. Its her daily goal to get in there. Drives me insane.. But all in all the past few weeks has been pretty good.. Other then me trying to kill myself and my baby..Lifes good.. 

 I finished a bunch of paintings . . . .

I have been neglecting this blog. I need to keep it up. The last 2 paintings I posted are still not done. I have finished another and started a completely new painting. But I PROMISE to finish those ones after. I need to. Bah. I have to reschedule my tattoo appt. since her at home studio was shut down. Makes me mad since it was someone in town who threw her to the dogs. Her studio is nicer and cleaner then all the shops in town. Oh well she is opening a store front in 2 weeks. She said she would come to my house.. I dunno how thats gonna work but I am down.

I owe her a painting and this way she can pick out which one she wants. I have been painting everyday I leave everything out so I don't say fuck it. I started a Marie Antoinette painting. Which I am in love with... Its so pretty. I will post progress pictures later. I finished this one a few days ago. I am debating on weather to fix the arm area since it does not make sense. The hand should not be there. The forearm is to short. Hmmm I dunno by looking at it makes me want to Im guessing I will end up fixing it. Bah. So much work for a little part.

My little Miss Olivia is CRAWLING.. Well push crawling. She gets around so fast I do not want to know how fast once she is truly crawling. Its crazy how big she is getting. I also started Yoga on Monday which I am going to keep it up. Gets me out of the house and I get a good walk. I am back on track with my weight loss. I lost everything I gained during the 2 weeks I was feeling down. Plus I lost 1lbs extra Woo. Go team me... It feels good. Working out everyday helps. It makes me full of energy and I feel a lot happier. I just need My boy to get on the band wagon again. He fell off hard and is not happy with his life right now. Which stresses me out. Thank god I have painting to go into my own world and escape into.

Today we are going to the Price is Right. I better win something.. Bah I need to. So I am going to start a bucket list and the first one is being on a Game Show!!! So thats checked off. Yay!!

I have been working on a few painting.  I really want to add Please take off your shoes on the first one. But I dont know. I love the lady I did but I dunno if I want to ruin it again. I already had the words on. Then I hated them so 3 hrs later and no words. I guess I am just going to do it. I have been watching a lot of how to videos to get tip and tricks. Talking to a few other artists that I adore. 

This one I cannot wait to finish. I keep putting it off tho. Drives me insane. I only have so much spare time. I have around 3 hours to do what ever I want. I can only squeeze a few things. I also always stay up late when I paint the hours fly by. Its like my own world to get away. Nothing really matters. I stop thinking so much and just paint. I definatly feel better the next day when I paint. But sometimes I want to laze on the couch and watch a movie I WANT TO WATCH.. Yay. Like I love you phillip Morris just go watch it. Jim Carry gay.. Its one of my favorite movies of the year. Bah I am off to go put pin curls in my hair and get my little girl ready for Grandmas and Grandpas. I hope I bloody win something or someone in the family does!!!!

So I discovered I am allergic to the numbing cream we used on my chest. The whole thing now has to be re-done. So lame. At least I learned my lesson. You are allergic to everything ALWAYS TEST! Bah. Its been 3 weeks and I am still healing. Went to my Doctors he told me it looks like a chemical burn WOOP WOOP so exciting...bah. So yea I am not looking forward to fixing it but I so am. I love my chest and want to be able to show it off. It looks horrid and lame so I am one pissy girl.

Ive had other sad news in my life. My Grandfather is not doing well he had a horrid fall at my parents house on Sunday. Hes 81 and hes so secretive.... But by what we know we think its cancer and hes dieing....My awesome Grandpa. My Grandpa...I want Olivia to know him have some memory of him and his great humor. Even after he fell and had a huge bloody scrap on his forehead he was telling everyone he wanted the Chicago Black hawks to win not our Canucks.. Making my dad laugh it was good. He was going off how there is more Canadians on that team. He touched me and hugged me so much it was weird. It was like he was telling me he knew. He held my face. Man I love him.

Also a very awesome person passed away yesterday. Victor was one of those people who you wish and strive to be like. He was on multiple sports team in Jazz bands, organized charity functions. He would sing and dance to make you smile. Walking down the isles at work we would walk side by side having a full on conversation in swanky English accents. I can see him dancing with packing strips. Man we was a wonderful person R.I.P Good suuurr..

I think its time for some awesome-ness Jughead.

Having money coming to you but you do not know when. There is so much I want to buy, I need a new king mattress, Bedding and side tables. Depending on price 2-3 bar stools that are comfy. An art cart..Not to mention Art supplies. More Canvases I want a huge one so BAD! I also giving Shawn $300 to go towards a tattoo. A new Stroller and maybe a fancy ring set.
