One More Day Till I Turn 33

I'm excited! Being a lover of numbers turning 33 is going to be fantastic! I loved turning 30 and I feel that 33 is going to be an even better year!

Mum took me shopping yesterday for my pressy and we bought 2 fish along with all the rest of the stuff I needed.

I haven't name my fish yet as I'm going to get people who come up for the open studios to suggest names for them. I just checked on them and they are happy as swimming around their new world.
I picked a black fish with a beautiful flowing tail and googly eyes, he is my favourite, and a big strong motley looking one. I have already spent lots of time watching them and am so happy to have finally got them! I felt like a kid, all excited, cause I had to wait a few days before Mum was free to go shopping. Rat my cat has seen them but didn't seem very interested as she just sat on the step and watched them with me, so lets hope she doesn't try and get in there with them.

On Wednesday I went to the opening of the Open Studios and I was so impressed with all the artists that turned up! It was so nice to see everyone there networking. I snapped this photo of Rere, the event coordinator. It wasn't the best photo I have ever taken but I love the pose she did for me!

I have donated this painting called First Day @ School, to the St Mary's Parish for their development black tie fundraiser.

If you are interesting in bidding on this painting the auction is at Element Cafe on the 2nd of May 2008. If you require any further information call Sarah on 348 5578.

Yesterday Shaughan bought the card for my computer I needed so I downloaded my movies onto my computer and he even put in another 80G hard drive in there. I'm so happy as my computer has been running so slow and it was nearly full. I'm sure it wasn't all the photos I have in it hahahahaha. He is a good boy!

I got all my catalogues printed thanks to the help of Stefano. Plus I got to go into the UCOL library which was so nice and new. I pulled out a book called The Power of Your Other Hand - a course in channeling the inner wisdom of the right brain by Lucia Capacchione. The minute I started ready it I knew I had to spend some time with this book as I have been suffering from a sore right hand, from being on my computer too much.
It would be good to get my left hand working again! My Auntie told me a few years ago that I was born left handed but my father wouldn't let me use it so it's time to get it cranked again!

Vanessa hasn't had her baby yet she is trying to have it tomorrow so he shares the same birthday with me. I think he is going to be called Johnny?

My message for the day was: Your unquestionable power rests upon your decisions, your intention, and your commitment.

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...

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 …
