Image Transfer on Wood

I just finished doing my first image transfer on wood, after seeing the how-to in this link:

I had previously attempted to do it on canvases (see image below), but this is by far my favourite result. I used a black and white photo I took of my brother and his girlfriend walking in Bruges, and I am planning on giving them the piece as part of their Christmas gift. I'm sure they will love it. I will do a couple more for my fiance and me after the holidays.

The wood piece I got from Michaels, I used Glossy Mod Podge, and printed the image on regular paper using an inkjet printer.

First attempt at image transfers. Still nice, but way too blotchy.

Walking Dead Workout

Ok, this I just had to share. I don't know how long these awesome workouts have been going on for, but they're an amazing way to keep active, especially when you're spending an hour in front of the TV for most shows nowadays. I've seen some Game of Thrones and True Blood workouts on the internet, but the Walking Dead one is my favourite. You can probably google your favourite show and the word workout and find one of these, or you can create your own and up the ante every episode (10 squats to 15), you'll be super fit in the season finale!

Delicious Vegan Lunch

Just wanted to share how easy it is to have a nice, healthy, simple, and VEGAN lunch every day. Today my lunch consisted of a super-fast-to-make salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and yummy avocados), a baked portobello mushroom with salt and herbs, sauteed french beans, and a mix of wild rice, brown rice, and quinoa (I usually cook enough for the week and then just warm up in the microwave!). All prepped and cooked in under 20 minutes.
