I've had another busy week making another journal and more jewellery. I've also found out I'm going to be a RoRo (grandma) again. Both of my daughters are pregnant so it's going to be a very hectic time in November and January.
I've also had a request from my three year old granddaughter for a 'princess' wall. I painted a mural for her featuring a scene from Nimo, but she's now moving into the bigger bedroom so hence a new painting.
About this time every year we have an abundance of these gorgeous 'red hot pokers', that's the only name I know them by. They used to be in another part of the garden and only had one or two insipid flowers so I moved them and look what's happened, a brilliant display that attracts the honey eaters especially as it's winter and there's not a lot of flowers for the birds.
This is the journal which is now on my Etsy
I'm holding a painted/collaged canvas workshop from home at the beginning of August, this is the type of thing we will be painting, so if anyone is interested please email me.
