Busy Bee

I have been  a busy bee ... creating new works  from the line of handmade shadow boxes I just  loaded on to my etsy  supply shop .
 These are several necklaces and  hanging  display shadow boxes  I  created.
The need came for  me to create a line  of small "ready to decorate " shadow boxes or small shrines  when I found that  I loved  creating  wearable  art jewelry but often found I did not wear jewelry.

This was the  shadow box base  I used  that  I now have for sale under the  "ready to decorate" section of my etsy shop


This was the base I  used for Expedition. This base is also for sale on my etsy shop under  the 
"ready to decorate" section 
Below are some  of the  other ready to decorate handmade  items I have on my esty shop .

Thanks of stopping by - XO Julie

Gypsy Stew

I recently had a cold and this is a super Chicken Stew to help the lows  that come with a  cold.
I rarely  eat meat and when I do it is fish and organic free range chicken ONLY . I have a hard time eating another creature that  has given its life so I might  have a meal. I also will not eat any animal that has suffered the cruel forms many companies use to raise and butcher  the animals we eat.  I research the companies  I buy from and stores I buy from too. WALL MART IS A BIG NO NO FOR MEAT as  they buy from  cruel processors.  OK  my rant is over.) Here is the recipe for my "Gypsy Stew" it is from the restaurant  'The Pink Adobe"  in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

2-4 = breast  free range organic chicken  cut up into  large bites
1-2=cartons free range organic chicken stock. You may need to add water too as all the ingredients need to be covered with liquid
3-4=yellow onions chopped into in chunks
4-6=small red potatoes  cut into  small chunks
3/4 cup cooking sherry
Salt and pepper to taste.

Place these items in a pot and  slowly  cook for an hour. Try not to boil.

1-2= 16 oz can diced tomatoes.
1=13 oz.  frozen  tub green hatch fire roasted chiles, more if you like it very spicy  !!
Put these  2 ingredients in  a bowl and marinate them together while the top ingredients simmer.

 Once the stew is done , add the  tomatoes  and chiles  then simmer for another 1/2 hour. Just before serving add another 1/2 cup of cooking  sherry and DO NOT  BOIL.

Serve in bowls adding diced Monterey jack cheese and sour cream . Also serve  with warm tortillas  on the  side. YUMMY !

A lemon desert such as key lime pie  or lemon sorbet is a perfect after treat.

Plans in the works ....

After posting on  face book and getting positive feedback. I am working on creating ongoing  watercolor  journal workshops. My first  step is to create an online  class  in the basic  how too's  which would be a highly recommended pre course to the actual live walking and painting  on site workshop. I will  also offer an online class in making  a suggested journal for your water colors. I hope to entice other teachers to offer their version of a watercolor  journal to go along with my classes   so student have a variety  of journals they can pick from to make as they develop their skills and fill each journal ( I life long process) .
When this is done  I will go on to post the places I will be  traveling to  in my  little  travel  trailer  I have named " Peanut ". I will also post the workshop time frame and links to suggested lodging for each place I visit. All travel arrangements  will be up to the individual. Workshops will be from 2-5 days depending on your mood. Does it sound  like  FUN?
 I hope to launch the online classes on May .

Thanks for visiting ! Xo julie
