Art Every Day Month Day 14 - Funday I mean Sunday

The last few posts have been so serious so today I'm going to have fun with my post!

Yesterday I pulled the ENCHANTMENT card

it said...recapture your childlike sense of wonder and awe. View the world as a magical place. Remember when you where a child and the how magical the world seemed? The sense of enchantment is the spirit of the inner child. Somewhere along the way did you loose that sense of wonder? The angels ask you to recapture your magical sense by remembering that a miraculous power surrounds you. 

Laughter is such a wonderful thing, I like to laugh and don't even mind laughing at myself.. 

Mona Nessa, my sister
Shaughek and Deona
Shaughan Van Gogh
Frida Tizard 
Little Dee Scream
Wanganui Gothic 
Mother Dee and Child

Ever wondered what you look like as Frida? Check out it could have you also rolling in fits of laughter for hours.

We ended up going to the Wanganui AMP show. I was really excited as we walked through the gates, I felt that rush you get when you go to these things as a kid. Here are a few of my photos..

Maddy was watching the people going up and down on a ride

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 …
