Spring is coming...

This picture was jumping out of my computer this morning, it is of me and my sister, who is pregnant with number 6! We are all really excited and can't wait to meet the next little treasure she is bringing into the world.
It has been so nice the past few weeks as the weather is warming up and we are getting out into the fresh air more. We have had 4 baby lambs born in the last month, the bird life is coming back and everyone is a lot happier. It's amazing what a bit of sun does.
Maddy is growing so fast last time we weighed her she was 8kgs, 2mora she is 20 weeks old. She is growing into such a happy little girl. Last night she slept till 6am I couldn't believe it, so I am feeling like taking on the world today :)
Shaughan bought me a new car this week it's a BMW I have always wanted one so I'm pretty happy, I love driving it! Shaughan will have to fight me to drive anywhere now :)
We have been upgrading my site it's starting to look great! I'm so lucky to have Shaughan!
Two weeks ago we found out the he has diabetes so he has to take pills and be careful of his sugar intake. He is a lot happier and is sleeping better now so things around here have been a lot easier. If you are feeling a bit off I suggest that you get a check up to see that everything is working right as it can effect your life! Shaughan has been feeling off for the past 4-5 years and hadn't done anything about it until he got sick of me nagging him to get a check up.
I have been painting a little bit and have a plan for my next painting but I find it a little bit difficult to find the time, I'm sure it won't be too far away. I'm looking forward to not breast feeding it will give me more time and energy!!!
My little one has just woken up so I better go. Have a beautiful day :)


my best wishes for you.and for your happy artisitic family..

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 …
