Anzac Day

I just went to my first dawn parade and it made me very emotional and filled up with tears. It made me realise how hard you have to fight for FREEDOM!

The priest that took the service was a beautiful man who spoke extremely well. I wish I had caught what he had said on my camera but it will always be in my heart.

Here is a small clip of my morning......




Over the past week I have been playing around with video editing software and today I wanted to find something to make cool slide shows. After browsing the Internet and watching a clip from www.about.com I found out that Microsoft movie maker was perfect. The about.com website is one of the best website for information on pretty much anything. I have been getting a few newsletters for different topics over the years and I find them fascinating.
Anyway I already had the programme so I got to it and created this slide show.........




My message for the day was: The 'Object' of your intention cannot be wrong or apart from God's will, because God, and God's will, only know JOY!

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 …
