Wednesday 7th November

I had a lovely phone call from Coke one of the people on the course last Saturday. She wanted to buy this painting "Always" for her husband. It's nice to start the day with having a phone call like this!

Oh I also had another wonderful phone call, Gwennie rang me from England which was so great. We talked away for about an hour, man my ear was hot when I hung up. She is happy as and hopefully she will pop over for a holiday next year. I really want to go and visit here in the next few years too! She was telling me about all sorts of things she has been up to and I can't wait to go and see them with my own eyes! Love you Gwennie x

It really was a busy day with lots of things happening. I have 2 new artists, Ixia and Azarn on they both come from France.

I spent loads of time playing with facebook it's such a cool website! The thing I like about it the most is that it is for your friends. Myspace is great for meeting people but facebook is great to find friends. Plus it has heaps of cool stuff to play with!

My friend Rere has just started her job with Open Studios and they have asked me to be a trustee I am keen and am waiting to hear back what this will involve. I do have a pretty busy life and if I was to do this I would want to know that I would have time to give it 100%.

It's our no TV night, I can't remember if I wrote about our Wednesday night lucky dip tin? We sat down and came up with about 50 fun things to do on a Wednesday night and last week we pulled for tonight 'Invite 2 people each to come up for a 3 course meal'. We both chose people who had never been here before and I'm looking forward to having a big cook up this afternoon.

I have been painting some new work for the exhibition and I'm so happy with them. It's nice when you find something that works for you. I think Cracked Pepper is going to look fabulous when we open the exhibition.

My message for the day was: God's thoughts of love created us. Since the creator's loving thoughts are unlimited, there is an unlimited number of angels.

Mum has just popped up and has fixed a top for me, thank you Mum! Vanessa and I are so lucky to have her!

Right I better get a wiggle on.

Have a fantastic day. 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 …
