Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them

Good day to you all! It's Rere here (or 'Aunty' Rere to those under 5yrs of age), and I've hijacked Denita's Blog for this day... SHHHHhhhhhhhhh... no passwords have been exchanged in this process... Denita's nicknames - hmmm, where does one start? 
  1. Her and her husband call each other "Humma", as in "Humma, sexy mamma"... 
  2. "Dee", as in the letter D..
  3. "DeeDee" - Her Gran was the only one who was allowed to call her that..
  4. "Nita" - A name the kids call her because they cannot pronounce "Denita"...
  5. "Dino" - A much hated one from her childhood (Sorry Caroline!)..
  6. "Mamma", "mama Dee" or "Mummeee" - Ever since wee Maddy Muddy Pants has been born (actually even when she was pregnant!)..
  7. "Mrs Damage" - married to "Major Damage"...
  8. "DenitaMAd" - She lived in Madeline Ave.. A.K.A Mad Ave.....! and just on the sly.. she is lovingly MAD!
  9. "Creeps like Moss" - Her Indian name.. She moved into one of four parts of a building and ended up taking over three parts...!
  10. Most important - "Mama"...... The name Miss Maddy calls her..
  11. "Bungy" - A nickname her dad gave her as a wee one..
  12. "Babe" - A term of endearment from her gracious husband... Awwwww...!
  13. "Miss Dee" - A term of endearment from me..... mille bacci!
  14. And one of her mates used to call her "A pain in his arse.." - Crikey!
  15. "Mrs T" - Shaughan's Dad calls her this.
Just quickly: I've been watching Denita and her gorgeous wee one pottering around in the kitchen this morning - So, so, so alike!

Thanks Miss Paula Ann without an E - author of and beautiful friend x x x

What a day we had yesterday it was visitor after visitor - I LOVED IT!!

We got given a crayfish and it was the yummiest cray I have ever eaten! Shaughan was lucky that I didn't eat it all!

I uploaded the new version of Skype yesterday and found out that you can video conference call! I'm so happy that this is here, just in time for my online marketing salon. It will bring the artists together just as I imagined. Thank you Skype.

I did a little bit more on my painting

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!

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 …
