Jumping at every opportunity

We have been down at Raumati Beach for a couple of nights. It was so good to get away and unwind. Poor little Maddy got really sick, so we didn't get to do all the things planned, all I can say is thank God I packed the Pamol! Mum and Vic took us to an amazing spot right in the beach here are some photos.

Raumati Beach

I am organising a picnic in the park for Wanganui artist to trade their Artist Trading Cards Friday 10th Dec at 12:30pm click here for more details. 

I am also hosting an online Art Marketing Salon for all artists in Jan 2011 click here for more details.

My tip for the day is about jumping at every opportunity.  You don't have to say yes to everything. In fact, sometimes, saying no to something can be more beneficial to your career than saying yes. 
Take a look at your standards and make sure they’re high enough. There are some exhibitions that just aren't worth joining. There are some connections that just aren't worth developing. 
When you say yes to something, especially something that takes your time, you're likely saying no to a host of other things by default. Leave yourself open to saying yes to the opportunities that really matter. 
Trust your own judgment. If something doesn't feel right and you want to say no, it's okay. At that moment, you may worry you're passing up a great opportunity and will be missing out. The reality is better opportunities (that are a better fit for you) will come if you are open and ready for them.

The Youtube clip for the day is Screentalk interview with Antony Starr

He told me in 2001 that he was a skateboarder that likes to act.

My card for the day is ROMANCE
it said...the angels have heard your appeals for romance they acknowledge your hearts yearnings for love. They have received and answered your requests. Now you will work in concert with the angels to manifest the romance you are seeking. The angels guide you in specific ways to ensure that they grant you your wish. The angels guidance may ask you to engage in self improvement activities such as exercise classes or self help seminars. Follow this guidance and you will discover the romance you are seeking. 
I love ROMANCE...bring it on!!!

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 …
