Social Networking ROCKS!!!

Yesterday I found a cool place on the net which allowed me to start building a social network website for all creative people.
It was so much fun and I'm really excited to have a space for all my creative friends. I have been lucky to have friends from all creative fields and I have always wanted to have a space for everyone.
My last job in Auckland was a casting assistant, so I was surrounded by actors and people in the film industry. I got to know all the agents in Auckland which was MAD fun!
I have always had a passion for music and I seem to attract musicians like you wouldn't believe. And of course all the visual friends I have made over the last 6 years.
So here is hoping that everyone will feel as excited as I do and we can get a good bunch of people together to share their creativity and passions.

I had a beautiful surprise on Monday in the post, my sister In-Law, Christine Tizard, had sent me a book 'New Zealand's Favourite Artists 2' which she featured in.
Would you believe me if I old you it has 50 of New Zealand's favourite artists in the book?
It is a beautiful book and I'm so proud of her, she is such a Gem!!!!
I just found a 11 page PDF sample of the book click here to view.
It's only $50 so go buy a copy, you won't be disappointed!

For the past couple of days I have been adding books, music and movies to my website. It was like walking down memory lane as the website I was using had some great old movies and music, click here to check out my lists.
I have just emailed them to ask them to see if they can get Chrissy's book, so I can sell it through my website.

The Internet is such an amazing place!!!!! I LOVE IT.

I'm looking forward to Shaughan's birthday party! It is going to be heaps of fun, I'm dressing up as Nina Simonne. I'm not sure yet which is the best way to make my skin dark? I love all the old girls of JAZZ! I'm really bummed out because my video camera has died so hopefully I can get my sister's one?

Here is some useless information for non-smokers.....I bought a packet of papers, not the normal Zig Zags and they made me feel yuck, my tongue felt like it had been pulled out of my mouth and snapped back in. It would be interesting to see if anyone else feels like this?

I better get back to doing some work x x x x 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...

I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere.

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 …
