View Kills Stress

I do my best to avoid stress… but some days it just finds you. I had just had ONE of those days – in hindsight I’d say it was an “over reaction” (whom me???) to “who knows what” but it felt real and stressful at the time.

My all time (ever!) favourite cake icing (cake frosting). I have made this Dairy Free or Lactose free by using Nuttelex and it tasted great – and I can’t see why you could not use your own favourite butter substitute. I’m sharing this as my friend Maree has asked me to send it to her and I figure everyone else might like it too! And you Continue reading...

What is Trompe-l’oeil?

So, what is trompe-l’oeil?  I’m lead to believe it’s pronounced “tromp loy” with a nice french accent of course  Trompe-l’oeil is an art term to describe a painting that appears to be in 3D. It’s a french word of course and translates to loosely mean “fool the eye”. Very hard to achieve and very technical to paint. Here are some examples for Continue reading...
