Another perfect day in Paradise!

First I want to wish Rere a very happy 30th birthday and a big sorry that we missed your party, I hope it rocked your socks off. It was lovely to have coffee with you in the morning and give you your gifts!

I gave her the painting that I did last Wednesday it is all about shapes and what effect they can have on your life. I painted it after the workshop that I held through the open studios. It reminded me of sitting at the back of science class doodling on paper. Yes I didn't pass science from a lack of interest and a busy hand.

I have had a good week, Sunday after the open studios I went and stayed at Maka's. I was so worn out that it was nice to crash out there!

We went to Mike's 50th party on Saturday night which ROCKED! They have such a cool place and great friends to party with.

Monday my house had lots of people in it.

Tuesday I crashed out on the sofa and watched movies all day and turned off my phone and door bell.

Wednesday I got into setting my house up with new projects. I started painting musicians and their energy they bring when performing. I have been wanting to paint these paintings for such a long time now and it's fantastic that it is happening!

Thursday I had another relaxing day and yesterday I finally caught up with my computer, Vanessa took me out to buy me a gift and coffee. She rang last night and we thought the baby was on the way but nothing came from her pains so maybe today?

I went through one of my old photo albums and took photos of when I was a little girl and posted them to my facebook.

This photo was taken when Vanessa and I lived with Dad in Auckland. From the top: Ness, Dad, Me and my cousin Sian. We had so much fun living there. Looking through my photos brought back many good memories and I have already had comments from some of my old friends who have said the same thing. I was lucky to have such a fun loving father! Thank you Dad for all the good times.

My message for the day was: You have angels assisting you in your healing, teaching, and service work, so do not hesitate to call upon us to support you.

Additional Message: "Spend time alone in nature, meditating about your desires and intentions. Ask the angels to help you gain positive perspective."
"Your life has been noisy lately, and you need to escape into a place of natural tranquility. It is time for you to be alone in nature, even if it is for just a brief while. You don't need others' permission to take care of your soul in this way. Simply plan your sojourn, and then follow through on those plans."
"Once you are alone in nature, allow your mind to wander wherever it wants to go. Notice your thoughts and feelings, and perhaps write them down. After a time, speak (aloud or silently) to the nature angels that surround you. Ask them to clear your body and aura of any stress that you may have absorbed. Then, meditate and pray about your desires and intentions. Prayers are amplified by the power of nature, and you will feel very refreshed when you return home."

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 …
