Busy days and ,odds and ends, and pondering

Hi all,

Speech night done and one more day until school is over for another year!!!!! Bring on the holidays!!!!! I so love love the summer holidays and Christmas time. I love the feeling of life and excitement and celebration and family and friends and holidays...............

Still getting Christmas organised though and I haven't wrapped one single presents hard to find the time with a precious 3 year old around.......and by the time night time comes I am also ready for bed and zzzzzzzzzzzz's!

Off to a wedding in Dunsborough soon and just had an Intimo party with a lovely friend of mine who I went to school with. I invited 20 odd people and only one person turned up!!!!!!!!! Lots cancelled, some forgot and others.....hmmmm my Xmas list!!!!!!!! Only joking!!!!

Paintings for the Regional Art Gallery still underway!!! I am still working on the painting of Starzia and I am loving it. But I have reached a stage where I love it....but it has such a long way to go....but I don't want to spoil it!!! But I have to get over the luxury of having that feeling, be brave and get on with it! I believe in myself so I am sure I will enjoy the challenge and love it in the end!

Between painting I have been pondering.....and............................. it is so important to live life and not just let it flitter flutter or fly by!!! My father said to me the other morning to make the most of each day and of being young because it goes by too fast. He is right! It is so important to stop and prioritise what needs to be done and what you want to do and do what you want to do!!!!!
I even feel now the days running away with me and becoming one!!!!
That's why I find it so gorgeous watching my beautiful angel playing. Watching her experiencing life .................and moments and being so thrilled and captivated by it......and she teaches and inspires me to do the same. It really is incredible!!!!

So I am determined to make the most of these holidays....throw myself into opportunities and experiences that present themselves and challenge myself to be more courageous and hopefully more than once take myself out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to be and become a better person!!

So, in short, while I am doing all this, I will be away for a short while and will not be blogging or posting photo's or organising my etsy shop etc etc.......all things on my very long to do list. But I am going to put it on pause for a while and enjoy my daughter and the wedding and my family and most special day of the year. I just love it!

So cheers to you all....I hope you have a very safe and exhilarating Christmas full of thrilling opportunities and adventures.

I will have lots of stories to tell you all....or here's hoping!!!!!!

Take care and talk to you soon.

The Mid West Art prize!

Hi all,

The Mid West Art Prize 20011 is coming up shortly at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery.
There is a prize pool of $45 000.

How cool is that!!!!!!!!

I have been spending my hours painting a picture of Starzia in the pool....a bit different to the photo in the last post! But very similar. So I haven't had time to sew or post up photos on my gallery or etsy shop, as yet, but I will get there.

Apparently there is a very strict pre-selection process.......I would so love to make it through and actually win something. That would be an amazing way to start the new year!!!!!!

Wish me luck!

Lots going on!!!!

Hi all,

Lots going on..... Here is a 1 to 5 of our busy life at the moment..........

It is all going past so fast........and Christmas is just around the corner!!!
Please head over to and order your Christmas cards before you miss out!!!

Starzia and I have snuck in another market stall and it went so well. So much positive feedback and sales. All good!!!!
The place was amazing and it was a lovely afternoon spent chatting and meeting new friends!

This was my little corner!!!

This was one of my own designs and one of the first items to go!!! I just love it!!!

This is the back of the dress, which when the child grows can become a skirt.

And the front. This lovely dress/skirt is made out of my very own fabric.....which is one of my children's paintings printed onto fabric, via Spoonflower!!!!!

If you love it please email me and I can make to order!!!!! The price of this dress/skirt was $45 AUS

The local ACDC gallery in Geraldlton is holding a GIFTED shop where all the local artists are invited to display and sell there works for Christmas. Very cool!!! The opening day is this Saturday at 10.00am, although I hear that there have been various sales already!!!!!!!

A lovely friend of Starzia's just had her 5th birthday party and I was asked to paint this board for photos. How do you like the crazy clown???? Cute hey!!!

This was another one of my very own designs and the birthday gift. I love this one too!!!

How cute is my little model!!!

The local Regional gallery is having an Art competition and I am thinking of painting my gorgeous Starzia....
Check this picture out!
Fun in the sun

So this is just a sneak peek at what we have been up to lately.
For everyone that is waiting for my to upload images of clothing and paintings onto the gallery and etsy....please bare with me.....they will be there soon.

I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.
