Here are a couple for IF - clean

I was considering starting a blog on spiritual and laundry advice. Actually more laundry than anything - but I'm not actually that good at washing either. Patience grasshopper....

Oscar the cat was feeling indulgent and posed for me. A quick sketch done in a couple of minutes .
Remind me to tell you about the time he rescued the baby possum.

tumble MSO

ahhh the beach in winter. Frolicking dolphins. Crisp walks. Building uber-castles in the seaweed.
Approximately 0.03 seconds after the shutter closed, sparky here took a dive. We spent the next 3 weeks getting the sand out of her nostrils. I think theres still some in her hair. She's 17 now.
the judges score - 9.8. She needs a little work on her delivery, but technically BRILLIANT.

1 love

And this....for inspiration thursday. I'm in a bit of a Sabrina Ward Harrison Mood lately. I hope she forgives me for the shameless borrowing of her look.


This little jounal page i created with the inspiration from Illustration Fridays topic - sacrifice. I was having a bit of a dark moment. I wasnt even going to post it because it looks so miserable. But....
on the weekend we had Shanti baptised and that (beautiful service) got me thinking about relgious icons and then I thought that maybe this is my version of mary with a sacred heart.
Anyway if after this you're in need of something happier with the same theme check out blu collage. It made me smile.

whimsy is one of my favourite things... the very thought conjours images of swirls and dancing colours in my mind...and yet of late it seems there has been not so much whimsy in my days. So -its a timely reminder to search out more. More pink. Alot more glitter.And definitely more flags. Some mosaics maybe. Skipping and fairy lights. Scones with jam and cream. A tea party a la Alice. I feel better aready....

ps - the jester is an sticky tape transfer. I painted a gorgeous little fairy to transfer with the inkjet transparency method but i just couldnt get it to work. Maybe the combination of my brand of gel medium, transparency paper and printer ink dont get along. I thought mabe next time rather than try and transfer - i'd just collage it. Gotta love a collage.

oh the humiliation

Ok so its a little embarrassing to be removed from a host website. I figure that its probably because I've made mistakes in my addressing linking type thing so I'm not welcome at Mama says Om this week. I dont feel so Om at the moment.
Perhaps the universe is trying to tell me to stop spending my time searching for inspiration, nurturing, connection on this crazy machine. Just get on with it. Turn the computer off and live my life...
ok ok Im going already
No need to tell me twice.
Im off.
Dont try and stop me....
Here I go.
I'm going.

So - now I'm really embarrassed. I'm typing posts to myself and even I'm not listening....
Oh dear.

"Crickey " she exclaimed "I'm atop a rock and a big one too"
Its true the climb had been long and arduous but despite inclement sunshine and occasional blinding lense flare she had summited the birrung ma mama without oxygen.
What remarkable athleticism, what stamina, what next ?
"Another Treat" the cry echoed across the valley...
and it was so....
a puppet making workshop, japanese for T and a hot chocolate worth writing home about (that was for me!)
