Bloody Good Week!

Well loads has happened since I wrote last.
This picture isn't the best photo but we had a car crash into the scaffolding last Wednesday night around 10:30pm. I was in bed trying to sleep and I heard a terrible noise and went running down there in my dressing gown. The ambulance had to come and take the passenger to hospital but I'm sure she is ok. It was a bit of a shock and I found it hard to sleep that night.

The night before I had slept with Ralph cause I was worried about him after his operation he was a sore boy, now he is back to normal bouncing around and has been loving the extra attention he has been getting.

I finally took a photo of my piece of glass I did a few months ago in Mangaweka. I haven't found the time to sit and give it a good going over with the dremil and sandpaper so it's in the raw straight from the mould. It's going to be a real cute bowl when it's finished. I couldn't believe how heavy it was!
For my first piece I was really happy with it and can't wait to do more.

I have been over to Palmy 2 times this week and have had a great time visiting there. The first time we went and had a BBQ with my mate and the second time I went and helped him move house I was Sady the cleaning lady for the day. It was a blood good work out!
I bought Mum and Nana back with me the second time and we cam across a house on the road and drove behind it threw Bulls, the only place you can get milk from Bulls. Dad used to always say that every time we went through there when we where kids.
There is heaps more I could write but it's time to go and make dinner for my wonderful husband. Man it was a sticky day here today.
My message from the angels was: Even if you are unsure or disbelieving, the act of calling upon us has immediate benefits for you if you are ill - as well as for your loved ones.

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 …
