New website!

Back to work today after 10 days off, including my birthday. Have launched the Slap Therapy website in addition to the Facebook page to keep the interest going for the Slap Therapy manual.

Please view at:

Will endeavor to include as much fun stuff as possible.
My first delivery of books arrived on Friday, which was kind of a big deal! The books look great and another bulk order has been placed.

Art Journaling was great last night with the gals at She Runs with Scissors. We made stamps which was super cool. Loving it! TTFN

Just a couple of rants of note in the last few days. First why do products have labels that are near impossible to get off? We have just re-roofed our deck with corrugated PVC sheets. They each had a label in one corner. I used Varsol to remove the sticky, or so I thought. This just turned the remaining glue to a pale purple "snot" which then spread like hell and coated everything that it touched, mostly my hands! I was not a happy camper. Thus said Mark did a great job of the roof which looks excellent.

Rant two, why can't people signal when driving, or signal as they start to turn? Hello.......the indicators on a car are to indicate to other drivers of your intentions to turn into junctions/roads etc. In Campbell River the drivers appear, or I am just so unlucky to encounter then on a frequent basis, awful drivers. At a junction yesterday, van parked near junction, car in front braked, so I brake, van continues to pull out despite me stopping. The van then honks its horn at me! Hello...braking to avoid hitting the car ahead.

No wonder I think slap therapy is a valid intervention!

1930's influence.

 I have posted a number of art journal pages onto the Gallery page. These were inspired by a thrift store find, a 1930's Eaton catalogue packed with black and white images of the fashions of the day. I have of course added my own slant to the images by adding some risqué comments or a modern twist to make them fun. I have also scanned these finished pages and had then printed to stick onto greetings cards (at the suggestion of a friend). They are not half bad.
It is Victoria Day today (Public Holiday)_ so we have been busy building a new roof for the back deck, sadly rain stopped play at 4pm. Dinner is being prepared as I speak. My contribution is Lemon Brownies, never had them before (recipe posted on Facebook and Pintrest) I hope they taste as good as they smell. TTFN

Sorry for the delay....

Over a month since I posted anything on this blog.....sorry. Been kinda busy with stuff. Lots of work in the garden, thanks to the good weather and then the self publication of Slap Therapy. The book is now available to purchase, in three styles from Prices start at $13.99 so it is absolute bargain. It would make a perfect gift for a good humored friend or relative.

A big thank you to all my work colleagues who have been super fabulously supportive with this crazy project. Decided to self publish and may try my luck with some local bookstores?
