We had our local show last weekend.
Once again, I left everything until the last moment to get my entries organised but I managed to get a few in.
My lead up to the show revolved around organising and gathering the entries of our clients as well as my own. This year, I also worked a stand on behalf of our organisation for a large part of the time. Continue reading →
There is too much heaviness in the world right now and so here is my effort to lighten the mood.
As I sit listening to the Pandora Christmas station, I was inspired by Cybele to play around in photoshop once again. I haven’t done this in quite some time but it is always a fun exercise. Continue reading →
Yesterday evening whilst I was in here catching up on comments from the past week and writing my blog post, I kept overhearing giggles coming from the living area.
They piqued my curiosity so when I had finished with the computer, I wandered out to the lounge room and found the Garden Gnome and the Teen sitting on the floor and laughing hysterically.
I asked them what was going on. Continue reading →
Many times, television commercials just get it plain wrong. I must admit that I really can’t stand the ads that show the perfect family enjoying unrealistic ‘quality time’ and smiling at things you just know you would pull your hair out over.

…… then nothing will.
It’s been a rough couple of weeks. When I’m ready, I’ll possibly fill you in on some of the details however in the meantime, business must resume as usual.

In my quest to schedule a gazillion posts for you all, I decided to ask my friend Mr Google for a writing prompt. For something different, I went to the images and hovered my mouse over the page before clicking on one. Kind of like a lucky dip only on a monitor lol Continue reading →
Today Don has asked that we colour in the picture we drew yesterday.
So here is yesterday’s effort once more to refresh your memory.
Today Don has asked us to paint it. So here is my coloured in version.
Thank you Don for a bit of fun on this beautiful morning.
Using a white background and a medium brush, I created this little drawing that took shape as I went along. The balloon morphed into a heart. The little girl/woman hasn’t quite got a full grasp on the string (it keeps breaking up) and the flower is one I have drawn a million times since I was a young girl. Always four petals and always without lifting the brush or pen/pencil from the page.
So I have saved this original file waiting for instructions for step 2.
