Flue Ridden Artist.

With school holidays happening here in Australia, and the little teacup humans occupying alot of my time, I've barely had the time to blog or art! Then my darling boyfriend bought home the flue from work, and its knocked us all around! Please forgive the huge gap in since my last post, its been very up and down few weeks, I'm still sniffling and coughing but at least I can think a little now.

I've worked on a few things since my last post, a few art cards for trading on facebook with other artists. This has been the most fun I think out of all my art lately, its going to feel like pokemon! gotta catch them all heheh.

I finally got my easel out that my dad made for me, and made some art for our bare bedroom wall, I rather like her, took me a while to actually like the finished product, but she hangs beautifully on the wall, even if every so often shes a little crooked.

I got caught up on my project life folder, biting the bullet and getting a stack of my photos printed, cornered, sorted and then arranged to make the pages of my project life as accurate as I could.

I also started a crotchet project aswell to stop my fingers from turning blue of a night strange as it sounds..its working.

and my darling man bought me these two books as a lovely gift a week ago, so I've been curling up on the couch paging through them, sighing contently as all the beautiful art and information. Soaking it up like the sunlight in summer.

hopefully my next post wont take me so long to get up, I think a few more days and our house should be flue free...*fingers crossed*
take care my darlings

  1. Love your wall art! And that atc is absolutely fabulous. I hope you are back to feeling 100% soon!

  2. So glad you all are feeling well. Love your painting that is hanging crookedly and perfectly on your wall!

  3. It sounds like you have been really busy even though John gave you all the flu.

    Glad to see you working on your project life. I am on week 28 and can hardly believe I have stuck with it. I think what works for me is doing it on a daily basis. If I did it weekly I would of quit a while ago. This old brain can only remember the details if I write them down. Would love to see one of your swap cards. *grin*

  4. I love your style it is just perfect in my opinion.

  5. Hope you're still on the mend.

    I absolutely love that piece you've done for the wall. It's beautiful. Can you post a full image for us please? I want to see the whole thing.

    Can't wait till your shop is open. Hope you'll have some originals for sale at some stage. Or perhaps we can do a swap?

  6. I love your style of art! Totally inspiring. You have a great unique style.

    I am your newest follower!

    Have a great day!

  7. Well I'm glad to hear you're getting over your illness. That always stifles the creativity.

    I love to read too, when I get a new book I can't seem to get away from it. I love your art, it looks wonderful, I have some of my own art hanging in my room, I like seeing it hanging everyday.

    Have a great day!
