Striped Cat Studio
I still love this painting of Paint, done last year by Kate of Striped Cat Studio. Paint is my parents’ family dog. Their massive old dog with a puppy personality. He has suffered with arthritis and other ailments for years, and the last two weeks has seen a drastic turn in his health. This morning, he is being put down to end the suffering he has endured for too long. It’s hard to swallow, and I can’t imagine going over to visit my parents and not seeing him lounging under his favourite tree. I’m going to miss that lethal wagging tail (it would knock you right out), his playful manner, and his unending adoration and love.
Paint, you are loved, and you will be missed.

To honour the most loving dog I’ve known, here are 10 of my favourite 10 art pieces honouring our furry friends.

Blog | Alt Summit Cards Roundup

Creature Comforts

The Sweet Escape

Meg Says Hello

The Proper Pinwheel

Alt Summit is just shy of a month away, and I’m starting to stress about business cards!
If you’re familiar with Alt, you’ll know that first off, business cards aren’t just business cards, and they are a big deal. I was trying to explain it to my brother and he was asking what size the business cards are. My response: “Size? I think you mean what shape. Or if its 2D or 3D. Or if it’s even a card at all”.
You never know what little delight will be passed from hand to hand at Alt!

I have quite a lot of cards left over from last year (can you spot them in 2 photos above?), so I have to be totally lame and reuse my cards, which is possibly the biggest faux pas anyone can make at Alt. But! I have other plans for them, and while they aren’t cemented yet, I’m hoping it will be kinda rad.

But if any of you have suggestions you wanna throw my way, I’m all ears.
Heck if you wanna make them for me that’s cool too. Ya know, just putting it out there.

Will you be attending Alt in June? I’d love to meet you!

Eat | Perfectly Valentine’s Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes

The Perfect Vegan Red Velvet Cupcake on Wayfair by Squirrelly Minds
I’m a huge cupcake fan and red velvet is my absolute favourite. There’s something about that hint of cocoa and deep crimson colour that makes it an absolute delectable delight. I love it even more around this time of year, because who can resist a red velvet cupcake that is so perfectly suited to Valentine’s day?

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I used to be an awful baker. No matter what I did something went wrong – especially with the seemingly fool-proof packaged cakes. The egg somehow always settled, leaving a nasty omelette crust on the bottom of a chocolate cake. Yes. Gross.
It wasn’t until I became vegan that baking and I got along. With the threat of omelette based cakes gone, I was able to make baked goods that tasted not only good, but amazing enough for vegans and non vegans alike to devour.

Pop on over to Wayfair today to get the recipe and learn how to get that piped rose icing that’s perfect for Valentine’s day.

Have you tried vegan baked goods before? What’s your opinion?
