Diabetes Blog Week - Diabetes Art Day

This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. These are just a starting point today – there are no right or wrong ways to get creative!

So I didn't have any time to make anything new this week for Diabetes Art day but I'm rather proud of the project below.

From Left to Right - Oregano, Chives, Basil

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm trying to get healthier so as soon as spring hit, I thought I would try growing my own herbs. I thought it might inspire me to cook from scratch more. As I've never really grown anything (I killed a cactus in college) so I am extremely proud of these and consider growing an art form


  1. Nice! I myself don't have much of a green thumb so I can appreciate your hard work. Those will be so great to cook with! Good luck!

  2. Nice herbs!
    I have just discovered your blog and have read all the posts :-) I'm an Alberta girl too. We live in Hinton and our youngest is a type 1 also. We are in Edmonton a lot as we visit the Peds diabetic centre at the Stollery.
    Thanks for sharing through your blog. I look forward to reading more!

    1. Yay! I love finding people in Canada, let alone Alberta.

  3. I'm trying to grow my first garden this spring also. If you figure out any good tips, you will have to share! I have a tomato plant, jalapeno, habanero, cucumber and basil plants and I have no idea what I'm doing :-P
