ppf and my jelly bean baby...lol...

OK...so, I wanted to do something different and try a sort of abstract piece of art..it really didn't turn out how i had hoped...lol...but it was a learning experience non the less...although i must say my hubby likes it and he is usually hard to plase when it comes to the things i do...i wanted to show the love of a mother to her baby, but experiment a bit with colour...well..i did that, but i must say the best thing that came from this is Jacob started to do a painting...i inspired him...so, without further ado here is my mother's love...i am of course linking this to the party....the paint party friday hosted by eva and kristin...yay...

Thanks for all the beautiful comments to all that have come and popped in....it really makes my day, and so look forward to see what you think of my scrambled attempts at trying to art...xxx

until next time
lots of it

Starlight Starbright...PPF

Hi there...
Guess what I got to do...I got to get some arting on....
I started a painting on mothers day, and used a piece of cardboard from a frame I bought as the the paint palette...and I loved the colours together, so I began smudging and scrapping and lightly skimming paint...oh the JOY....and came up with this...
Starlight starbright, first star I see tonight, wish i may, wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight...
A little thing my mum taught me when I was little....
when my babies were very ill I made a wish that they could live so they could grow up and be together....
This celebrates that wish coming true...


 And this is a wip of the painting I began...
Linking this to Eva and Kristins PPF...
until next time
lots of it

New Art and Paint Party Friday

It;s been a while. I think I need to art, or craft, or whatever you call it. I had these half done and since it's mothers day here in Australia tomorrow I thought I'd get an early start in my ME day...hahaha..






I am linking this to paint Party Friday...
I think I am giving one of these away and one day I plan on opening an etsy, or something like that...we'll see.

These are called, soar and enjoy the flight.....

I will finish with a photo of the twins who had a bit of a celebration last weekend, along with Jess and Cameron, oh, and I had a whole lotta fun too...

Until next time
lots of it

A new Blog

Hey everyone. I have been fairly quiet in blogland of late. I have still been visiting, but not getting much done myself. Home education is a full time job. It's insanely busy, thereare moments when I feel I am about to implode. But, of course I don't.
I have made another blog with the kids called... REALLY! HOME EDUCATION...it's a little journey of our antics, with results of all their, and my, hard work.
Home education is quite a lifestyle choice. We started it with Jacob due to his health issues, and then Maddie began it this year. They are doing through Distance Education. But as of now, I have started Connor through the Board Of Studies. He has been sick 5 times already this year missing too much schooling. You can't just whip your kids out of school. You have to apply and be very prepared with what you plan to teach them. It's been too many hours of hard work, but it's been interesting.
Enough of that. Today we looked at the rennaissance period, and looked at Da Vinci's works of art. We listened to Verdi's La Traviata and had fun using paints and pencils and charcoal. YUM!!!

Me

Connor

Jacob

Maddie

Would love for you to check out our new blog.

Until next time
lots of it
