Day 12 of Creative Everyday Month - most recent accomplishment

That would have to be that I am 30 weeks pregnant and I created 101 things to do list today! 
Here is a photo of my bump and my other perfect 2 year old bump hiding

Here is the link to last years day 12 on basic colour psychology -

I had such a fantastic relaxing day today, which I NEEDED!!! When you are a Mum you don't get to have needed breaks, imagine having an hour lunch break each day. I read a good article yesterday on newborns It's amazing how you really don't get having a baby until it happens! Plus I'm not very good at asking for help, so I burn myself out and get really ratty. Hopefully this time I will ask for help and it will be a little bit easier on all of us. I'm really excited about our little man's arrival and today finished organising all his clothes, talk about being super organised! 

Our little one put herself to bed early tonight, giving me a few extra hours up my sleeve so I have been poking around the net looking at stuff. I found this cool site that challenges you to do 101 goals in 1001 days. I have wanted to write a list for ages so it just pushed me along - I think it's pretty cool that a New Zealander created and owns the site. I'm looking forward to ticking off my list in 1001 days. There are some things that I would have never written on my list if it wasn't for the site like doing the 100 snap shot challenge, watch every film that Johnny Depp has been in, and receive cards from 20 different countries through Postcrossing. 

My card for the day is 
Flow in the current of love!

Whoo hoo...

I bought myself a new pillow today, I'm really looking forward to jumping into bed and reading.
Till tomorrow x x x x

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 …
