Middle of August already!!

Talk about a long time since I have written in my blog. It's been good not using my computer as much as I did.

Yesterday I went for a walk around Durie Hill and got this photo of our building with it's lovely new colours.

Last week I found out that I'm pregnant. It was a bit of a shock but we are both very happy and talk about getting excited. I'm so lucky to have my sister helping me out. I was trying to talk her into becoming a Midwife yesterday as she would be perfect!! Wanganui has a shortage of them I think there are 15 midwives and 800 babies being born a year. I heard some people are being shipped out of Wanganui to see a midwife.

This was another photo I took yesterday I love it when the moon is out!!! I think the moon coming over Durie Hill is one of my favourite sights. I'm lucky to have such a good seat in our house to watch this!

I have been busy doing lots of different things like the Tarot every morning which has been interesting. I have never kept a note of the cards I pull, so it is interesting to see which cards I keep pulling out. It was funny this morning as I woke up grumpy and wanted to lash out, the cards I pulled said.... wait, relax, trust and have good judgement. It totally pulled my head in!!!!

I finally used Skype for the first time in my life on Tuesday. It's pretty cool as I got to talk to my mate Kohava in Ozzie!!
And I had a group of people come and paint with me in the morning, it was a lovely, we are heading off to the gallery on Friday afternoon together. It's really cool meeting new people that hold the same passions as I do.

This is the beginning of one of the 5 mask paintings that I wanted to have finished by the end of August, man how life gets mixed up. I have only started 2 of the 5. Maybe today I should get cracking and get some more done??? Or maybe I should go watch movies keep warm and eat chocolate hahaha.

My message for the day was: The bliss of the Creator forever permeates all of creation, and it is only in the forgetting that misery exists.

Yay Spring it on it's way!!! x x x x

Here is a funny little clip I made of Ralph yesterday.....

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...

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 …
