Latest Kids that Creep painting



Hi fellow bloggers! I finally had a productive weekend, thanks to the miserable weather. I stayed in my pajamas most of the day too, lol! First off, here is the latest in my Kids that Creep series. I am very happy with her...a few weeks back I showed a photo of another creepy kid painting I couldn't get right. Well, after letting it sit for a while, I didn't think I could salvage it, so I painted over it, added some vintage paper, and created this latest little girl. I hope it's not too morbid...after all, I can't paint pretty girls all the time :-)

I also am working on a Halloween painting on a larger canvas, an idea I had planned out a while ago. It is proving to be tougher than I thought. The girl is no problem, I am stuck on the background again. I will figure it out though, and post it here once it is done....

I'd been thinking that it would be a good idea for me to do a detox before winter gets here. I am addicted to sugar. This is not an exageration, I really crave it. So I began last weekend. There are instructions that for 15 days, I should try to avoid coffee, sweets, fruit, anything with flour, tofu, condiments, etc...
I've been waiting for possible symptoms, like headache, nausea, or moodiness that occur when the bad stuff is being removed from your body, but nothing is happening. I re-read the pamphlet, and think I messed up. I thought eating cake and having coffee wouldn't affect it but it looks like it did, so starting tomorrow, I will follow the instructions. So next blog post, I may be very cranky, lol!

Has anyone had any experience with detoxes? Did it work for you?

Good luck with the sugar detox-That sugar is powerful stuff-I know that feeling of craving it too. Sending you strength and good luck!

"Kids That Creep"...what a wonderfully ghoulish theme...and picture! Creepy, yes but I like it!

Good luck with the sugar detox. I too am addicted to sugar and have cut back drastically in the last three months. Trying to only eat sugar found in fruits and veggies now. What a difference it has made.

Lol, I have never stuck a detox ever. Really bad of me. I would love to see how you get on with your's. I will keep my fingers crossed for your shear will power. A tough one in which I would admire you so much. Well I admire you already and have to say, your painting is lovely. I love the girl and the scary surroundings. She has such a look of weariness on her face while still looking very cute. Sometimes the second painting turns out wonderfully and is just ment to be.

Fabulous! Yes do a detox just for a week and you will see how much better you feel! X:-)

What a cute and creepy painting :) This is definitely great weather to be hanging around in your pjs. That's what I'm doing today! Good luck with the detox. I have never done it myself. I know I would get a migraine from caffeine withdrawal - even though I only drink one espresso a day.

Hugs!

I've tried the detox and yes, I was cranky. My biggest trouble came in the form of nagging headaches. I was not able to stay off of sugar, it will always be my nemesis!

Renee said...

No detox but boy am I addicted to sugar too.

Love Renee xoxo

Love Renee xoox
