autumn breakfast

Always discrete. Breakfast Jones loves this time of year.


come back, friend

During a lovely hoar frost, my camera decided to cop out on me. I'll need to take it in to get fixed, which has me feeling a bit nervous because I have been in a comfort zone for so many years. I'm not quite sure if I'm ready for change as of yet. I'm stubborn with gadgets, I suppose you could say..? or just stubborn in general. Yes, that's it.

Now if I can figure out where I left the lens cap...


bike fun

I think next year, I need to get myself a bike. 



I heart buttons... and of course tea.. and pretty black and white patterns..

fall sandwich

I took my camera for a walk today, to enjoy the cool fresh air and find some fancy bits for inspiration. I love this season for the colors and textures that come with it. If fall came in sandwich form, I would surely eat it. I don't know what that means... I love it, that's all.

There's a certain silence that comes with the chill in the air. I often encourage myself outdoors when it's like this simply for the sake of learning to deal with change, even if it requires more layers of socks and warm beverages to thaw out one's fingers. Did I mention how fun it was to see frost on the windows this morning? This, I know will wear out its welcome in time.

It has been confirmed, I love this season.


sketch shark

Sometimes this is what happens when I decide to keep a sketchbook.




Doing what he does best.


carving miss sadie

I'm working for a Shih Tzu again; which is really such a treat. I got to meet the lovely Miss Sadie not too long after Breakfast arrived in the prairies. We shared a pleasant walk, some wine, and even some decent poop stories; which is typical for dog related conversation.

When I was asked if I was interested in creating another banner for the blogging pup, I suggested a dabbling of sorts with different media. Something new to keep my hands busy, something challenging. I may even be wrinkling my brow a bit more than usual. This is a good thing.

I enjoyed taking sculpture in college, but haven't done much with it considering the amount of mess and dust which it creates. This, being smaller scale (using Sculpey) has minimal mess. I have a cup for my shavings, am whittling (yes, whittling) the figure with an exacto blade among other carving tools, and have yet to tamper with painting techniques to finish it off. So, yeah, I'm a tad nervous about the outcome, but am enjoying the process.


kick start

It's October, my favorite time of year; the season of change. Yes, it's time to put my crafty pants on. Let's kick it.
