It's Christmas Eve and I have been putting off going into town to finish off my Christmas shopping, if I leave it any later all the shops will be closed. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope your day is full of love, food, peace, loads of gifts, and happiness. BIG HUGS AND KISSES x o x o x o

A recipe exchanged from Deanna - Green Curry Chicken

1 whole chicken breast cut into thin slices (very)
1 T green curry paste (I use Mae Ploy)
1 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup sliced beans
1 can bamboo shoots (sml can)
1T fish sauce
1T sugar (I use brown)
2-3 kaffir lime leaves (you can get dried from asian warehouses)
fresh basil leaves
2T oil

Put oil in pot, add curry paste, lime leaves stir 1 -2 mins
Add coconut cream - bring to boil, add chicken, stir 2-3 mins
Add fish sauce, sugar, beans, bamboo shoots and bring to boil.
Add basil leaves.
Serve on rice.

I add more beans and a lot of fresh basil - one of those bunches you get from the
supermarket in little pots 

*To turn it into a fish curry - leave out the chicken, add chopped tomato one or two, spring onions 
and instead of beans I add frozen peas and add the chopped up fish at the end and only 
just cook through. 

I love chicken green curry! 

The Youtube clip for the day is Christmas lights gone mad

My card for the day was FOCUS ON SERVICE
I wish Wanganui retailers would focus on service, they offer the worst service in the country.

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. 
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 …
