Salad a day 2012 - Update

My project of eating, photographing and instagramming a salad a day is still in full swing.  Today will be day #65.  Oh yes, it's true, there are currently 64 pictures of salads on my instagram feed (@theskartist -- in case you want to follow) For review on this project or to understand what I'm talking about you can click HERE.

The challenge has become not actually eating a salad a day-- that's easy, in fact sometimes I eat TWO salads a day -- it's eating a new and interesting salad as well as making it look pretty enough to get validated by at least 1 "like"

Well, the other day I was beyond validated when the National Post contacted me asking if they could publish one of my salad photos in their newspaper.  Yup that's right, one of MY salads printed in full color in their Gastronomy section.  It was a picture I took when I was out for Lunch at a Toronto restaurant called Chickerie.  You get one side with your chicken and although I really wanted the mac and cheese I got the salad (see there are health benefits to this project) and a beautiful photo, mostly due to the restaurants own wonderful food presentation

So here it is listed alphabetical - click on the picture to see full size.

How I Met Your Mother - The Nursery!

Guess what?  ---Lily and Marshall had a baby!
And you know what else? ---They have great taste!  
Why? ---Because they decorated the Nursery for their little boy with Skårt!

Yup that's right.  Season 8 of How I Met Your Mother premiered a couple of weeks ago - The new Nursery set featured prominently and Skårt's Night Owl Series and Flying Around the World were there decorating the walls.

Displaying Kid Art

I was over at friend's house and I happened to notice the great "Gallery" she created of her child's art.
The art display has a wonderfully symmetrical feel to it and seemed to effortlessly float in the air.

Upon closer examination I realized she had just taken two clear push pins and strung a piece of heavy duty fishing line connecting the two.  Fun colored chip clips from the dollar store and voila an easy way to display and change your little one's masterpieces.
