Over the weekend Reg and I participated in International Tabletop Day Halifax Edition. I had never really done tabletop games in this manner before and was a tad nervous.
Until we choose the game Zombies!!! And I swapped characters with Reg. I wanted to be the dude in all-black holding a shotgun.
Amazingly, I got my first zombie kill quite easily.
Still, like typical me, I went off in my own direction on a suicide mission, wanting to clear the board of as many zombies as I could.
Even though people (ahem, INCLUDING Reg) sent zombies my way (which I responded in-kind) I amazingly... survived!
Soon, I had a whole hoard of zombies at my feet! But of course that could not last!
I got a brain cramp and lost all my lives! Overrun with zombies and bad luck. I was D-E-A-D dead.
Resurrected, I decided it was time to play with the others and go for it since they were attacking me while I was on my own. Things were bad but then...
They got even worse! The board was covered in zombies, all the way to the helipad where the helicopter would pick one lone survivor up.
As the others tried to search for ammo and extra lives, I said, "To hell with it!" I am just going to go for it and if I die, I die. I had no ammo, no lives left. Everyone thought I was crazy.
But I did it. I honestly am not sure how it happened (they had to tell me I won) I made it to the helipad and took off on the helicopter alone! Leaving comrades and zombies behind.
Best game ever!

Yesterday something actually HAPPENED in my limbo life. I got together with my sisters Jamie and Shannon for another episode of stART: Creating As We Go. In my collage you can see some of the foodie projects that will be coming up on my blog.
You will also hear about how my foodie blog's 4th birthday is around the corner and some of the projects I have been working on. I am hoping that this is going to be a big fabulous year for me as Suzie the Foodie. I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen trying to keep myself busy and inspired. I love that I can share these adventures and ideas not only with my sisters but you as well.
We love hearing about creative projects! So let us know if there is something you are working on and want some feedback or inspiration. We are hear to help with your creative journey.

Back on Vancouver Island my friend Fran bought an egg to our women's circle on the spring equinox. She said that she heard you can rest an egg upright on the equinoxes and wanted to see if it was true. We went outside and sure enough, she could do it. I could not believe it.
I went home and did the same thing. First on my kitchen floor and then on concrete outside. This was truly magic for me.
Ever since I moved to the east coast, it hasn't worked. Every year Reg asks me to try again and the egg falls over. But not this year! In fact right before his eyes, still all dressed up in winter gear I ran to the fridge, got out an egg and on my first try, it stood straight up!
It remained that way as I got up off the floor and went to get my camera. Now that is real food magic and helps inspire to me think that maybe things are "righting" themselves in our lives.
I am taking it as a positive sign!

I am hoping my videos are helping people truly see what's going on with the products I have been getting. Plus, it's fun. I always want to keep learning, whether it is about food or tech.
When the two come together? I am in heaven!

You know what is amazing? I keep thinking I have control over my creativity but in reality, I just seem to be following a plan. One that wakes me up at 3 am and tells me to play with clay, Alpha-Bits, acrylic medium and charms. I will be sharing the project which you probably already know soon but this photo just made me happy and I just had to share.

OMG, I keep forgetting to move that dishcloth out of my shots! LOL. Please, ignore the dishcloth.
We have changed the format at stART a bit and this is me sharing my creative musing on superstitions and rituals that get in the way of my creative path.
I don't know what it is about me getting my hair done and our car falling apart and spending money on myself jinxing success but when it comes to this ritual and superstitious thought, I want it to end!
Do you have rituals you use that are not helping your creative process? What thoughts do you need to let go of?
