Saturday 29th September

What a beautiful day it is here in Wanganui today! The sun is yet again shinning and the wind has settled so it’s a perfect day for people to take their loved ones out and enjoy the day having fun!

I sent my aunty a few cds in the week as she said she was sick of the music she had and she rang me yesterday and said she loved all of them, even the one I sent for her granddaughter she wanted to keep, it was drum n bass, she is a funky grandmother!

I can remember one day we went out for lunch at a lovely restaurant in Parnell with Sianshine and we ended getting all the people around us up dancing, what fun!

We always have racky times together its fun! I miss not being close to my family in Auckland and miss the madness we share. Most weekends Sian and I would go and have an adventure from going out to Goat Island snorkeling, fishing with the boys, doing lunch, having dinner parties, going to cool parties and hitting the dance floors around Auckland. Sian’s great to rark up and loves dolphin diving on the dance floor I don’t know how she does it.

I have a very cool family there is a bit of drama but what family doesn’t have drama? Mind you I don’t talk to my Dad sometimes it’s best just to let things go and one day they may come back healed? He knows I love him with all my heart and I am here if he changes his mind or his circumstances change.

I am very blessed to have my lovely Mum in my life! She supports me with the choices I make in my life and is always there with unconditional love.

And a beautiful sister who is pregant with her 5th little treasure. It's great her loving having kids as it keeps family members from asking me when I will have them.

I decided to paint my studio yesterday so I went down to the gallery and got all the pots of paint I had and am going to mix them together and hopefully have enough paint to paint all the walls and hopefully have enough to paint the lounge! Our house has all been painted with paint I have acquired. I hope to have the first coat on before the end of the day so I better get cracking.

My message for the day was: There are no limits to what we can do in your life. We are very, very powerful human beings.

Love and Light x

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 …
