Feels weird not blogging...

it has been good as we have all been a bit off! Maddy and I have had a cold and Shaughan has on going problems but yesterday was a bit of a scare for us.
From his post on Facebook..."A bit crook today, 111 and ambulance time. Turns out a stomach full of blood isn't really conducive to having an excellent day. Many tests, tubes, and x-rays later, it appears I'm all good, with said issue not likely to re-occur, as the doc put it down to the pills I've been taking, and me being so hard (or stupid) I didn't notice there was an issue till this morning. Dee has looked after me awesomely, good wife :)" 
Poor man I always tell him not to be such a drama queen but he really was not very well yesterday.

While we waited for Shaughan we hung up with Leah, my niece, while she was getting stuck into decorating her wall. Ness had ripped off the wallpaper so that the kids had a place to go mad with writing on the walls. 

I just have to say that Imlay Butchers rock the party, thank you for the roast popper.
The best service I have had in ages!

This is the beautiful sunrise we had yesterday.

Good to know this HEALTHY change is just what we need! 
Maddy and I are off to the doctor to so I'd better go and get ready :)

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 …
