It seems this today has bought great joy to this little soul…
Last week I was luck enough to be a challenge winner in Uncommon Supports to paint on and if that wasn’t enough excitement, this morning i woke to see my latest 6 works have been featured on their page and i am a featured artist…
I have to say that the support and encouragement i have received from Ina and thea has been very inspiring and motivational and i can not thank them enough.
So this evening i find myself wandering around in the bubble pondering that thing we all get emotionally worried about… you know… age… and where its going to take me in a couple of days i will find myself another year younger you see during this moment (that has possibly lasted a few days) i have come to the conclusion that life is where the road of age leads us. we are all on it and without age we have no life to enjoy… so i have decided to share a few thoughts on this matter i have been pondering.. take time to notice the little things that should be making you smile and feel light of heart… often these little things pass by and we ignore them only to later realise that the moment to enjoy it has passed… stop and notice I see people these days rushing from here to there and not looking …
so i dont do this very often, but i stumbled across a most talented artist this evening that has just joined RB and i believe her work needs some attention so thought id share a link to her new corner here..
So this evening i was most surprised when i checked in and discovered i made a few sales today.. So heres a huge thankyou the the lovely man who made the purchase i hope they give to you what they gave to me as a was creating them.. many thanks again enjoy xoxo
It has been some time since i have posted a journal and i thought i might take the time to share a bit of what has been going on… first of all Many congratulations to all of the wonderful featured images for yesterdays birth and maternity mothers day features xox …
As for my mothers day i was woken to kids attempting to be quiet (and we all know when they try to be quiet they are generally twice as loud) while they prepared the most beautiful breakfast, got to love scrambled eggs on toast with tea and flowers, loads of hugs, cards, pictures and sweets then my darling eldest (mr 11) informed me that at this years mothers day stall he was one of the last classes to attend and by the time he got to buy something there was nothing but chopsticks left so he decided to get me something els
This evening and heading into the wee hours of the morn i have been sitting here ever so quietly and working away very hard every now and then taking a short break and adding something to my facebook page due to the dull-drums of creating more and more forms for the business… and all of a sudden from the corner of my desk… bleep diddle bleep… (terrible at impersonating mobile phone tones) there was a mail message informing me that SOME EVER SO WONDERFUL MYSTERY PERSON purchased an… EXTRA LARGE CANVAS PRINT of my dear friend MANDRILL …
message to the mystery buyer out there heres a great big HUG and many thanks it has made my tired morning all sunny even before the sun has risen
I sincerely hope that you enjoy the print once it arrives as much as i enjoyed photographing this fellow he really
As i sit here on this balmy evening, cicadas singing and the wind whispering to the trees. My thoughts go out to all of those affected in one way or another by the floods currently sweeping their way across this country. xo
So last night i sat up till all hours framing a few lil pieces for an exhibition myself and my family members are involved in for the third year running… i think my head managed to hit the pillow at 3:30 only to have to get back up after 6 to begin the day.…
lil snippet of what was entered
(keep in mind that even photographers are not always good at taking photos on their mobile phone after the witching hour)
Sorry about the over sized image

well enough waffle out of me for one night greatest apologies if this is a little mish mashed as i have had very litt
