A New Joy!

I got THE best prezzi for my birthday in August... 7! 7As in George Costanza Seven... :)

My awesome Boxer. Oh of course I still adore and love Gypsy but she has always been someone else's dog. Soooo the last week I've been teaching her to run with me and she's a natural. No stopping, no lead pulling, just great pace running with the odd Boxer grin.  We do 5kms most mornings, she looks like she's power walking with those long legs compared to me!

It's so much fun running with a dog!!

And yeah it IS a great name.... lol

New piece... a Prezzie!

OH I found the RIGHT piece for this new necklace AT LAST! Wanted a crystal in an old setting and put my positive thoughts out there. Found it today.  People always ask me how I find all the pieces that 'fit' together to make my sculptures and jewellery.  I can't answer that. I really don't know.K1 A lot of the time I need to cut things apart to get the right bit that I need, sometimes it's perfect as is. At the risk of sounding all metaphysical, I truly do just come upon the 'right thing when I need it.  Sometime I see things and just 'know' I have to get them and then within a short time they seem perfect for a new project. Never found, brought or been given anything that I haven't been able to use and I've never been stumped on a project, the right thing seems to turn up with a few days when I need it. I think the world is a giant jigsaw assemblage to assemblage artists. As well as being able to construct, we can just as easily deconstruct and 'see' the endless possibilities in everything.

For a very special person...

This Week.....

Very quiet.... those close to me know why. Things should be back on track this week. Awesome toSketch2 have my boy home... SO GOOD!... all good positive thoughts and hopes for his mate... we all pray he will be home soon too.
I'm busy making jewellery, catching up on orders and settling into the new part time job... who knew it would be SO much fun and so rewarding. Love helping people with their projects and it's a really friendly, nice place to just be in.
A ray of sunshine in a dark few weeks! Tempting to even work full time again! But NO got to have art time. Working on January Exhibition... something a bit different. News soon.

As mentioned before... the lovely phone bloke erased my sim card when I upgraded my phone a few weeks ago so I am missing a few people. Text me if you want/need to be on my phone. Same number :)
I'm looking for Lisa in particular... your necklaces are READY!

Itching to paint again... here we go... lol why can't I just settled down! Sketching sketching....
