Spice of Life

“Spice of Life” was created with watercolor, acrylic, pens, and a few of my favorite stencils. My message is; Life is full of variety, don’t be boring using the same spices day after day, mix it up a little, explore the possibilities!

I’ve had spices on my mind lately. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I finally found an awesome part time position that will supplement my income, and allow me the flexibility to keep my art gig going!

I’ve always considered cooking and blending spices an art form, so I was thrilled to accept a position with Penzeys Spices! I haven’t worked retail in 30 years, but this was too good to pass up! It’s a great company that values the safety of their employees, and I get to talk about cooking and recipes with passionate cooks!

Back in the day, I wrote a rather successful food/cooking blog for many years. It still gets a lot of traffic even though I haven’t posted anything new in years, there are some great recipes! If you are curious, I Don’t Cook, But My Boyfriend Does!

I hope you are having a great week, stay creative my friends! πŸ™β˜ΊπŸŽ¨


    1. Awesome! I’m having a lot of fun, and I thought I knew a lot about spices, but, no, I have so much to learn! Cooking really is a creative process, it is perfect for me right now! πŸ€£πŸ˜‰


  1. Oh, how lucky you are, blending spices. So many wonderful smells and taste – but I guess you are not allowed to taste or?? I hope so. I love tasting food or dishes I have not tried before.

      1. You are so cute. That was eight good size scones. We ate four each in two days. However for thanksgiving this year I made two sweet potato pies and we ate half a pie for breakfast one day. We are pretty bad. Of course we honestly work out in the house pretty hard. Now you will wanting to be experimenting with exotic spices. How fun. I hope everyone is really cool where you are going to work. Sending you lots of love my sweet friend. The fairies will be stopping by to check out the spices. Love ya πŸ€—β€οΈJoni
