Ok, this is just creepy… I won’t be taking any midnight walks for a while! We also got some footage of this Lynx, gorgeous animal! I’m working on adding videos to my site then I will start uploading the animal files we are getting.

The whole family doing chores. So cute how they all want to chill with us. It took Donn a while but she joins in and comes for our walks etc now. She is hilarious when we decide to head home, you have never seen a cat move so fast, she is a blurrrrrrr.

Stanley Cemetery signs

no comments

I was commissioned by the Friends of Barkerville to design and produce these signs for the cemetery at Stanley. It was a great job, love that I’m getting known in the area for this work. I have a few other projects on the go I will share as they finish.

I sure learned a lot of history!

13 Moose, 26 Bear and a porcupine

no comments

First porcupine of the year, just a little one. I love the look of these guys, I might try to paint one in pastel one day.

The bears seem to be gone from the other end of the property, phew. We did not want them getting comfy!

We had a sketchy guy stop here so the game camera has temporarily been turned into a security camera. We are working on a second camera for security.

24 bear and a lot of scat!

no comments

Barry walked over to the old studio tonight and found 9 piles of scat on the road so we have a bit of a bear infestation. One pile looked different from the rest so we think the grizzly was around again. The other day Barry came home and there was a black bear in the front yard and today it was up by my office. He is moving the game camera as I write this so we can see what’s going on over there! A little nervous that he’s wandering around out there! NOT MY FAVOURITE TIME OF YEAR! Also the bugs are getting ridiculous… thank you Frog Snot!

4 Moose, 1 bear

I saw my first bear last week.  They are awake!

Barry was housesitting at Len and Hildurs, he got there one night to feed the dogs and there was a momma with 2 tiny cubs up a tree. ┬áBernie couldn’t get at them, he was fenced in but he was close enough that she wasn’t coming down. ┬áHe put Bernie inside, searched high and low for a camera then watched them a long time. ┬áHe only got one good shot and I’m not allowed to post it since it might be a painting one day. ┬áSooooooo cute! ┬áLittle gaffers.

I’ve started letting Mini sit on my desk if she wants to. She sure feels special. So cute! She has mellowed a lot and wants to be snuggled more, yay!

Pots and pans!

no comments

Got an early birthday present when we found a set of $1000 pots and pans 70% Off!! Wow are they amazing! Changed the way I cook. Stainless steel with copper layer in the bottom. Cooks nice and even and stays super hot for a long time. Love the glass lids too.

Wrapping a snowboard for Troll Mount Everest Challenge. We donated it as a prize and Len and Hilder decided to keep it!! They want us to do one each year.

Walking Jack

Every time we go down the driveway Jack has to join us. We have to lock him in if we don’t want him to come.
