Saturday 6th October

I had a fantastic day yesterday! I counted and we had 33 people come up here yesterday and have fun.

The first group did lots of painting and had lots of fun doing that! The second group did some painting and played on the musical instruments for the whole session which was fantastic. They were great and shared with each other. What wonderful children they were they had something special about them and all had some spunk. In this photo I had said to say Wanganui rocks which they did with a small voice and then the said naki rocks and the voices came with great force, it was funny! They are going to come back next holidays and I'm looking forward to their return. I will upload some more of the photos I took onto my photo album http://paintpit.dotphoto.com/

I had Mum and Carolyn come paint more of the Mona we are doing for the Mangaweka festival and it's starting to look fantastic. I still have some work to do and will get onto that today.

I have been reading Deepak Chopra's book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and loving it.

I want to share with you some of the things in the book it may just inspire you to go and buy a copy?

The Law of Pure Potentiality - When we realise that our true self is one of pure potential, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe.

Applying it to your life: get in touch by taking time each day to be silent, take the time everyday to commune with nature and to witness the intelligence within every living thing, I will practice non judgement and throughout the day I will remind myself not to judge.

The Law of Giving - The universe operates through dynamic exchange....giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And I am willing to give which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.

Applying it to your life: wherever I go and whoever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. It maybe a compliment, a flower or a prayer. Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.

The Law of Karma - Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind....what we sow is what we reap. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success.

Applying it to your life: Today I will witness the choices I make in each moment. And in the mere witness of these choices, I will bring them to my conscious awareness. Whenever I make a a choice, I will ask myself what is the consequence of this choice and will it bring fulfillment and happiness to me and also those whose are affected by this choice.

The Law of Less Effort - Natures intelligence functions with effortless ease.....with carefreeness, harmony and love. And when we harness the force of harmony, joy and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.

Applying it to your life: Today I will accept people, situations, circumstances and events as they occur. I know that at this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be. Having accepted things I will take responsibility for my situation and for those events I see as a problem. I know by taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation. Every problem is an opportunity in disguise and this alertness allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit. Today my awareness will remain established in defenselessness. I feel no need to convince others to accept my point of view and not to be rigidly attached to any of them.

Well that is 4 of the 7 to find out about The Law of Intention and Desire, The Law of Detachment and The Law of Dharma or purpose in life get down to your book store and pick up a copy of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

I have his pack of Success Cards which are great! I have just grabbed them and pulled a card for the day which is: In and of itself, money is not the root of all evil - I recognise the value of money when I learn not to confuse true wealth with the symbol of wealth. BEAUTIFUL!

http://www.chopra.com/ I just went to his website and joined up for the newsletter.

My message for the day was: You are an angel, and you are a blessing to the world.
(from Messages from your Angels calender by Doreen Virtue)

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...

Releasing my MADNESS! 

Getting more into it without distractions

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 …
