Happy Australia Day....


one of my p cards from the alpha swap....

Just thought i would pop in and say Hello....
I hope all you aussie ladies are enjoying your long weekend with your families and finding some tme to create. I worked sat and may have to go in today unfortunately! depending on how busy it is. I think the shops are open way too much, its just greed!

I've been painting still, the hole has taken much longer to repair than i thought. I ended up bogging it with that expanding foam. The piece i cut off is an interesting shape and has neat patterns on the cut side. It will make a neat stamp! Would you believe there was a fight over it??? ...only in my house!

Charlie has been down at Howqua in the victorian alps, camping with a friends family. I was worried about bushfires but apparently there is not a lot left to burn as it was burnt last year. I will be glad to see her back, i've been a bit paranoid since the accident next door.

We have been having some computer issues [cant get into any typepad blogs and some web pages] so may be offline for a day or two while the hard drive gets flattened. Luckily my brother the computer whiz/geek/nerd does all the fixing so manages to save all our stuff first.

So i am off to put my first coat of purple on..... have a great weekend jenxo

Happy Australia Day to you too Jen (I hope you didnt have to go into work).
I've had a creative morning. Done a few journal pages (finally got motivated) and may do a bit of stitching this afternoon.
Have fun with your painting!

Happy Australia Day! I saw it on my calender for Monday, also Chinese New Year :)

Your Party Possum is wonderful, the bow on the tail is great too!

Giggled reading about the coveted foam piece, only an artists eye would see the possibilities in a piece of repair foam = Love it!

Hope you get your computer up and running smoothly again, it's terrible not having them running, altho you'd get more painting done ;)
