Lee Ann – “The Butter Compartment”
Born in Texas, Lee Ann currently lives in New Jersey where she works as an art therapist, which allows her to channel her artistic energy and skills into helping others develop a positive attitude about living with diabetes. Diagnosed in 1978 when she was 5-years-old, Lee Ann was at odds with her diabetes for much of her youth. She was diagnosed with depression at age 16 and also developed an eating disorder. Years of not accepting her disease left her with some complications, including retinopathy (that has been successfully treated) and minor kidney damage. As an adult, Lee Ann has learned to face her diabetes head on. She counts carbs, wears an insulin pump and a CGM, and is an advocate for dietary moderation.

Friday Food File: Spicy Asian Slaw
Once upon a time, I thought it would be fun to review food products and offer the occasional recipe in series I dubbed, the Friday Food File. It didn’t really stick, and I’m a lazy blogger, so it’s been awhile since I did a Friday Food File post – almost 3 years to be […]… Read More

Day of Light
This post is my contribution to the #DayOfLight initiative, “Bringing Depression Out Of the Dark.” #DayOfLight was February 5th, but I didn’t learn about it until later in the day, so this is a late contribution. I was 16 when I was diagnosed with depression. I had been depressed for… Read More

Diabetes Art Day 2014
Today was the 5th annual Diabetes Art Day. When I started DAD in 2010, I figured it would be a one-time event. I’m so grateful… I mean, so grateful that it has endured. I have lots of thoughts and emotions swirling in my head and heart after spending the day finishing my own painting,… Read More

How I Learned to Breathe
This is somewhat graphic, and if you have food and body issues, potentially unsettling. I woke up with a high BG. I didn’t know how high because I didn’t check, but I knew it was high. Not just a little high, but probably hovering in the HI stratosphere. That’s what happens when you… Read More

Oatmeal on a Plate
My 95% vegan-5% vegetarian experiment continues, although I need a more succinct name for it. The fact that I’m still calling it an experiment says something about my level of commitment I suppose. I feel weird saying, “I’m a vegetarian,” partly because some people have less… Read More

“What was accomplished?”
#8220;The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fightng the old, but on building the new.” ~Socrates I arrived back in Philly at 6am on Monday after taking a red-eye home from Los Angeles to attend the Medtronic Diabetes Advocate Forum. Despite having attended a number of… Read More

The Persistent Experiment
Some of my favorite foods are chicken, cheese and turkey. Chicken has been a staple in my diet since forever, and I swore I couldn’t live without it. I said the same about cheese. My favorite cheese, Wensleydale with cranberries, is a heavenly, buttery snack cheese. I’m also keen on… Read More

Self(ie)-Actualizing
The last time I posted, I was in the midst, and actually getting close to completing 30x30x30. Then I went on a solo road trip to Texas to see my family. I brought a big bag of art supplies, but I also brought my dog, Kaylee, so between the trip there and back – a […]… Read More

30x30x30: Even More D Cards
Like I said yesterday, I expect many of the rest of my 30x30x30 posts to be artist trading cards for The D Card Project. Today is one of those days. To make these, I used craft paint for the background, then dripped oil-based latex paint, and on top of that, I dripped acrylic-based latex […]… Read More

30x30x30x2.5×3.5
After three days, I’ve come to the conclusion that 2.5″x3.5″ artist trading cards are the perfect size for fulfilling my daily 30x30x30 art projects. It’s quite possible most of the rest of my 30x30x30 art projects will be ATC’s as I prepare for the first round of The… Read More

30x30x30: More D Card Fun
I’m really excited about The D Card Project, which I told you about yesterday. I’ve been making more cards, which has doubled as my 30x30x30 project for the last couple of days. So far, six people have tole me they’re interested in joining the first artist trading card swap, and… Read More

Vegan Adventures: Peach Walnut Pancakes
As I experiment with a new approach to my diet, I’ll be sharing recipes and other thoughts about trying to eat for a better me and a better world. I’m not really sure where I’m going with it, so for now, I think of it as an adventure. My adventure in shifting to a primarily… Read More

30x30x30: The D Card Project
I’ve decided I have a brain parasite that eats my brain tissue and poops out art project ideas. I have at least two solid ideas with project names, and a few more fuzzy, unnamed ideas. I posted about my parasite on Facebook, and Courtney kindly helped me name it Arturo. If you can’t… Read More

30x30x30: Back to the Easel
Today, I returned to my regular painting class after a summer hiatus. It felt really good to get back into painting. I have everything I need to work at home, but with school and other things going on over the summer, I just didn’t do the work I had wanted to do. […]… Read More

30x30x30: Prepping to Paint
Today’s drawings, which represent my 30x3x30 submissions for yesterday and today, are a continuation of the drawings I submitted yesterday – same idea, but variations as I experimented with the imagery. As I said yesterday, these drawings relate back to my paintings, and tomorrow is… Read More

30x30x30: 16 and 17 on 18
Somehow, my art-making has gotten away from me this week. On Monday, I was scrambling to complete an assignment for school, and that had to be my priority. On Tuesday, I had clients and lingering school work to do. I thought I’d have a chunk of time to make art for both Tuesday and […]… Read More

30x30x30: Artifacts
30x30x30 has turned into a good excuse for making progress on my tree-leaf themed altered book, which has reminded me of a project I did in 7th grade for life science class. We had to do a tree identification project, so my mom and I went to the Philadelphia Zoo, where the trees are […]… Read More

30x30x30: Day 14
I wanted to add another Zentangle (TM) tree to the altered book I’m working on for today’s 30x30x30 installment, but this time I wanted to break in my new colored pens…. Read More

30x30x30: What Not to Do When Your Eyes Are Tired
I spent a decent chunk of time updating the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange website yesterday. I was leaning towards not doing the postcard exchange at all this year because my ability to manage the logistics of it has not kept pace with people’s interest in participating. Also, in… Read More

30x30x30: Recycling a Book into Trees
This is an altered book I started several months ago. The cool thing about an altered book is its limitless possibilities. It’s no different from blank canvas in that respect, but there’s something richer about it because of its history and symbolism. If you google “altered… Read More

30x30x30: Landmark
I’ve been feeling sad today. Needless to say, 9/11 has something to do with that. I actually had an idea for some artwork related to that, but I didn’t do it. I generally avoid saying or doing anything related to 9/11 to protect Jason. He worked in Lower Manhattan at the […]… Read More

30x30x30: Reminders
I was looking at my site stats this morning, and saw that someone had been to an old post, Cracked Veneer. I recognized the title, but couldn’t recall what it was about, so I clicked. There are always old posts listed in the stats that people have happened upon, and I never take particular… Read More

30x30x30: I Almost Didn’t Make Anything
I had a busy day planned. Supermarket shopping, doggie class with Kaylee, office hours – including a perfect chunk of unscheduled time between clients for art-making – and lastly, home for the Eagles game with Jason. Then, this thing called diabetes happened. I noticed I was running… Read More

30x30x30: Day 8
I totally cheated today by not staying within, or even close to the 30-minute time frame that is one of the 30′s in 30x30x30. This took me about two hours. I’m happy with it, I had fun making it, and magically, I’ve managed to keep posting for 8 days in a row now, […]… Read More

30x30x30: Reflections on Death
My much admired, beloved friend, and comrade in snark, Christel, who blogs at theperfectd, posted this article about dying, The Ultimate End-of-Life Plan. It describes one woman’s decision to not undergo possibly lifesaving treatment for a heart condition because she didn’t want to die… Read More

30x30x30: Day 6
I was a little spent after the paper-mache disaster yesterday, so most of my creative energy went into making a vegan apple cake. Technically, I’m not vegan, but I’ve been eating more vegan meals and snacks. It’s actually my intention to write some posts about whatever it is… Read More

30x30x30: Day 5
Today, the 30 minutes of 30x30x30 turned into 3 hours. I had an urge to paper-mache test strip bottles this morning. Needless to say, there is an entire tangential discussion about why I would even have such an urge, but in the interest of getting this posted before the day expires, and also… Read More

30x30x30: Day 4
Back in August, my sister-in-law and her family were in town, and Jason and I had the pleasure of babysitting our 5-year old niece and 19-month old nephew. My niece likes to introduce herself as an artist, so I was super excited to do an art project with her. I decided to do […]… Read More

30x30x30: Day 3
I like tree and leaf imagery. Trees are rich symbols of so much, depending on how they’re represented and the context – knowledge, history, creation, gifts, growth, relationships, renewal, home, community, family, life. Today, I was in the mood to do something tree-themed when I got… Read More

30x30x30: Day 2
I don’t usually have a clear idea of what I want to create when I decide I’m going to make art. I often have a vague idea, or at least some sense of what materials I’m going to use, but today, that wasn’t really the case. Without even a vague notion of what to […]… Read More
