Sometimes you just gotta suck it up - 2 by 

One of 3 of my works featured on the Homepage – 22 June 2009 – Yay!!

Placed third in The Beauty of Childhood challenge in the First Things group – June 09 – thanks for voting! ( :

Featured in redbubble’s featured art – May 09

For some reason, my ‘models’ were ALL keen to get in on the action in this shoot… could it be the wonders of spaghetti?? This is one of my daughters, Grace (6).

Canon 400D

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
