What a week!

My life has been total madness. I can always tell when things are crazy cause I don't write in my blog and my house looks like it hasn't been cleaned for a month. My mission for today, cleaning the house.

Our exhibition 'Our Love' went off with a bang! We had loads of people come and join us our local MP came which was a nice as he is a lovely man and we are lucky to have him here in Wanganui! Bobby came up from Wellington which was heaven sent as he helped us a lot. Thanks Bobby. We are all talking about having an exhibition next year, the three of us with Bobby in Wellington. I can't wait to get to a bigger town to show off our styles. Maybe it could be New York the next year after that? ROCK ON!

Rere did well in the exhibition and sold 3 of her pieces. We all had great feedback so we are very happy with our efforts Click here to read our story and see the online exhibition, bear in mind the photos don't do justice for the paintings.

After the exhibition opening we headed up here and didn't finish up till early in the morning, singing while the boys were rocking out on the instruments it was a good night. Lots of people hadn't been here before and they all couldn't believe their eyes. We have a very cool home!

One chic that came up, I had meet a few weeks ago cause she had a beautiful dog and I couldn't help myself from going to talk to her. When I walked away I said to Shaughan they were cool I hope we get to meet them again and lucky me she walked into my home a few weeks later. I love my life. Ever since I was little I always thought I had a direct dial to God and he always gave me what I wanted. Thank you God.

I got through to the top 24 in the nescafe design a cup competition, they are taking public votes you can visit the website and vote for my design 'The Promise of the universe is LOVE' just click here. While you are there you can go in the draw for $5000. Best of luck.

I haven't even had time to clean out my new fish tank. I'm hoping to head over to Palmy in the next week or two, so I can go check out the pet stores over there and get some fish. I have heaps to do over in Palmy and was going to go there yesterday but I have run out of time. Get this one of my best friends bought a house maybe a year ago and I have never been there, she is also on my list! And to get my camera fixed I can't wait to get my camera fixed I had to borrow my sisters as I'm going to go and take some photos 2mora for the Wanganui website.

I'm going to see Sue Nicholson 2mora night with Ness, Audrey and Bubs it will be fun. I have never gone to a show like this before and don't really know what to expect. The advert says to take things along of people that you would like to contact. I'm wearing Gran's ring so we will see if she says hello. I must take tissues as I can see myself getting a bit emotional even over other peoples messages, it touches my heart and makes me cry!

My message for the day was: Never worry about calling upon us because you fear that your need is not "big enough" or that one of us might be busy. We want to help you with everything, large or small.

I just want to send some love to Bex and ask God to help her with her health issues. x x x

Better get cracking and take Ralph for a walk.

Have a beautiful 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...

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 …
