Tuesday 16th October

I was looking through some of my photos and this one cracked me up. It was taken in my home in Rotorua with Josh, me, Ralph, Chevy and Chanz. The boys were drinking coke!

Chanz and I lived together and had so much fun I think we bought some extra rarkiness to Rotorua. She is one of the most talented artists I have ever met and I love her dearly and feel blessed to have had her in my life.

Josh and his Mum Kate came and stayed with us for a holiday and we had a fun filled time as you can see. That house just brings back great memories. We had a big thermal pool and a big bath that we used to have people come and use all the time. We painted murals on the fences, it was choice! We even had a thermal pit were we cooked food in. We even had our own lake access which was the best place to go and meditate so quite and peaceful. Being so close to Auckland loads of my friends used to come down and stay, I miss that being in Wanganui is a bit too far for them to come for the weekend. And it doesn't take 2 1/2 hours for me to get there :(

Yesterday was cool I got out my boxes of Cd's and ripped the music I didn't have on there. I was up till midnight doing it and thought I would have a sore wrist today but it's as good as gold.
I didn't end up going with Shaughan to buy the new car we have it was pissing down and I was happy on the computer. I will go and take a photo of it. Wicked car to drive I'm going to go and pick my sister up for a spin when I have finished here.

I had a bit of a moment today about making money. For the past 3 years I haven't had any money and my Independence is out the window. I'm lucky that I have such a supporting husband but I want to make money so I'm going to sit down and sort out some money making projects this afternoon.

I caught up with Kev yesterday and went and had a look at his painting that he picked up for $25 what a bargin! It was painted in 1929 by a famous painter, I can't remember his name but it is worth looking at selling and making a tidy profit of thousands!

My message for the day was: Before doing anything, ask your higher self, God, and us the angels to guide you. In this way, you are assured of continually floating in a sea of miracles that will astound you with their beauty.

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...

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 …
