28th September 2007

Yay it’s Friday!

It’s 12.12pm and I’m still sitting at my computer in my dressing gown pretty normal for me. I woke up and wasn't feeling very well so I went back to bed and turned the TV on and got to watch a lovely movie about a princess it made me cry.

I have been designing a new business card for Carolyn as she has an exhibition coming up in a few weeks. Carolyn has been creating some wonderful work and I would love to buy a special piece of art I saw yesterday. I will let you know more details about the show when I recieve them. I would love to pop a photo of one of the dresses but I don’t think she wants anyone to see them before the show opens.

I was up to 9pm working on the Wanganui Art Society website last night uploading photos of the exhibition they are having at the community art centre. It’s a nice exhibition and hopefully next year they will host it in the Sarjeant Gallery instead of the Community Art Centre. If you are in Wanganui pop down to the art centre and check out the exhibition it’s on till the 7th of October 2007 or you can visit their website:

I spend the afternoon yesterday sending out tickets to my friends and people in Auckland that I thought would like to come to Breakthrough to Success event in April 2008 which I will be attending. I have been given a massive pile last night so if you are reading this and would like a ticket let me know. I have about 30 to give away they are worth $895 each. I wrote about it in my blog yesterday and have more information here if you need it.

My message for the day was: You need not wait until a crisis or some other dilemma has hit before asking for help. In fact, it is a good idea to work with us in any trying situation before it gets to the boiling point.

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
