Thursday Art Date: Cakes


Hello Friends!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to Thursday's Art Date, today our theme is Cakes. Bugs is really channeling his inner pin-up gal as he pops out this giant cake! I hope you're all doing well. Things are chugging along here slowly but everything is moving in the right direction! I can't say I'm feeling great, but the weekly therapy is doing wonders for my spirit and emotional health! It's a long process. Thanks for all of your well wishes!! ๐Ÿ’—


This week's highlighted artist is Gillena from Lunch Break blog. Gillena's Betty Boop art is just fabulous, as is her haiku!

Bugs makes a great pin-up as he pops out of that cake GREAT hair. Gillena created a fabulous Betty Boop. Hope you are OK and you are soon able to relax a bit.

I am glad things are improving, take good care of yourself. Have a happy day!

Christine said...

Fantastic celebratory cake. Nice piece from Gillena!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh dear, I wonder if I have an inner pin-up gal like Bugs? LOL! Sorry Rain, but I had to fudge the theme in order to post something so I focused more on "May Sweets" than on "Cakes."

Gillena Cox said...

Thank you for featuring my image today Rain

much love...

Martha said...

I'm so glad to hear things are moving in the right direction Rain. Hang in there!

Cathy Kennedy said...

Rain,

LOL, I love your bugs popping out of a cake! Why didn't I think of this? My brain is so fried after last month's challenge. Phew, am I ever exhausted still! Thanks for hosting the weekly fun and I'm sorry for being AWOL for the April art dates. Hopefully, I'm back now! Have a doodletastic day!

Irma said...

Nice image of Bugs and the Cake.
Betty Boop is a lot of fun too.
Good to hear you're doing a little better.
Greetings Irma

Mary said...

Cheering you onward dear Rain! I'm struggling a bit myself currently plus am sad because we've had to cancel our May trip home to England - too many negatives still for internatioal travel! Will shoot now for Sept.
I love haiku, used to write some myself and should try again now there's more time to spare!
Warm hugs - stay strong.
Hugs - Mary

Well Bugs does make a lovely surprise for whoever gets that cake :) So glad things are going well ... and yes, therapy is a long and arduous experience and I think you got passed that gate just by beginning. Hope all is well and time will bring you back to us in great shape.

You have such fun!

Yay for improvement..Great image. Have a blessed day

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Bugs makes a good cake pin-up gal, Rain. While sorry to read that you are not feeling great, that can be understandable. Many folks, myself included, do not feel so great these days. It's good to be able to share thoughts and feelings and helpful too, I believe. Thanks for letting us know you are doing better.

Mae Travels said...

Very cute Bugs Bunny. With rabbits eating our garden plants, we re more allied with Elmer Fudd at this point.

Keep going! We are all rooting for you!

Phil Slade said...

Hi Rain. Good to hear that your feeling better. And that popping out of the cake is a self-portrait from this week huh?

Rain said...

LOL...how'd you know Phil? ;)

Thanks everyone. I'm learning new skills for stress management. Funny, I thought I was doing all I could, but there is always something new to learn!!

Breathing deeply is the best way to stop anxiety when it's starting, but there's a way to do it. Breathe in very deeply, hold the breath a little bit, then blow out the breath slowly as though you're blowing out a candle...but exhale twice as long as you inhale. So if you inhale for a count of 5, exhale for a count of 10, repeat 5 times. It really works well! :)

Martha said...

HAHA! How cute. Can never get enough of Bugs Bunny. :)

Andrea @ From The Sol said...

5/9/21 ... Just to let you know I am thinking of you. We miss you, but I am glad you have the courage to tackle your issues in a positive way :) See you soon ...

Stefanie said...

I'm glad therapy is helping you. I'm sorry you've been stressed out. Good, ol' sassy Bugs.

Becki said...

I just want to say a big Ta Da! to Bugs popping out of that cake. I'm glad you're feeling better, Rain, and thank you for the tip of breathing when anxiety strikes. Stopping to remembering is the trick for me. ;^)

Magic Love Crow said...

I love Bugs!!! I'm happy you are going to therapy! Love you my friend! Take everything one day at a time! Big Hugs!
