I scream, you scream we all scream for... avocados [ice cream recipe]

by Andrea Mulder-Slater My daughter loves ice cream. Unfortunately, ice cream does not feel the same way about her. When she was a baby, we were told (based on some recurring symptoms) my girl likely had a milk protein allergy. This is different from being lactose intolerant. Folks who have a lactose issue can still eat  lactose-free milk products (including some aged hard cheese, yogurt that's been fermented for 24hrs, etc.) but those with a protein issue have an allergic reaction when they ingest milk products (lactose-free or not). This is something that she may outgrow. This is likely, considering she can now eat small amounts of cheese, yogurt and even gulps of milk, with no trouble. However, there is a threshold - and when she crosses it - whammo... hives. Back to the ice cream. Her first big taste was this summer, in the form of a scoop of vanilla on a cone.

Painting with Coffee and Studying at Etsy U

by Andrea Mulder-Slater I've loved etsy since I first discovered it a number of years ago. The concept of an online marketplace for people who made things by hand, really appealed to me.  I joined the site when I was pregnant, back in 2008.

However -  recently, I've made a concerted effort to go "back to school" and learn all that I can about etsy. And I am having a lot of fun with it - especially since I just had one of my items featured on an etsy Treasury list (this is a good thing - I've come to discover). I'm sharing with you now, photos of some of the products I've been adding to etsy. They are (of course) inspired by

Looking Through It...

Life is a whirlwind at the moment and between the sale of our house, the epic move, family visits and art show openings, I haven't had many days available for painting. However, I have been working on a new series of abstracts when time allows and I'm really excited to share them with you. These new pieces range in size from 4" x 4" to 12" x 12" and - as with all my abstracts - they are inspired by the land and sea. Hope you like them! ~Andrea
