Magic Positive Messages

I have been making little positive messages. It's therapeutic for me but I would really like to think that others feel the love from my message. I don't have a huge Instagram following, nor is my YouTube channel very popular...but that doesn't mean that I will stop. If it makes one person's day a little brighter then I'm happy.


I have made a little collage video of my positive words...hope you like it...
If love for you to follow me on Instagram, and maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel.
I would like to check out you Instagram and YouTube as well...
You will find my YouTube channel HERE.

And don't forget to share your own links in the comments so I can check them oit.

Until next time

How to Edit to make your Image POP and weekly Round up.

What have I been up to this week?
Lawn bowls, teaching, painting, playing games, shopping and creating a wicking bed.

And all the everyday stuff life brings.


Another week has gone by and it just makes me realise how quickly it goes, and I really need to make the most of it.

Lachlan turns 23 tomorrow. How blessed I feel to have him in my life.

So many people wonder how to edit an image, as sometimes the photo never looks as good as the original...I have made a short less than ten minute video n how to edit, just like in the below image.

Let me know what you think...
Here is the YouTube instructional video.

And this is what I got up to paint wise.


I have also been creating little positive word videos and putting them on instagram. I would love for you to tell me what you think.

Here is one of them...

And here is another.

If you are on instagram I would love for you to follow me...

Easy Cheesy Scroll recipe

Today is Monday so a recipe it is. Got to love a quick and easy recipe with using stuff most of us have in our pantry.

An did this one is it.

Easy Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls.



I have created a video for those of you who like to watch and learn how to make.

Pre heat oven to 180 c

Ingredients
2 cups of self raising flour
1.5 cups Greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1.5 cups grated cheese
Vegemite(can omit if you don’t like it)

Basically just mix the dry ingredients then add the yoghurt.
Mix until a dough consistency. Add more of either one til it’s right if needed.

Roll out onto a piece of baking paper and then spread the Vegemite and then sprinkle cheese over the top.
Roll into a scroll and then cut into about ten pieces.
Place on a lined baking tray and cook. I put mine in for 23 minutes. Time will vary so just watch and take out when Brown.

Let me know if you tried them.

Would love for you to like and subscribe to my channel. Then you won’t miss out. ❤️

Until next time

How to Video for Begnner Artists

Seems I am wanting to  spread the word that everyone can create.

I so often hear people say they are not creative or they cannot create art. But I am a great believer in the reality that everyone can create.

I am on a mission to show how it can be done. And  am learning a new skill myself. How to create videos...lol...so forgive me if I inundate with them.

I’d also love for you to like and /or subscribe to my YouTube channel. The more that do the more it gets the word out there that anyone can create art.

I believe that creating and being creative is good for the well-being. Producing something that looks good makes you feel good, and even the process of it all is relaxing, makes you forget the worries or concerns etc you may have.

I did this with Jacob, and remember we are beginners...just the second time I have tried it, so it’s not perfect.

But we created this together.

So, here’s is the how to video.

HOW TO CREATE AN ACRYLIC POUR FOR BEGINNERS



Let me know what you think.

Owning A Pet

We have had Byron the Labrador for 5 years. He is like part of the family, and just quietly he thinks he is a human!

He had to visit the vet last week as he had a rash on his belly and he seemed to be scratching at his ears.

It turned out that he had a very little infection in his ears, apparently from all the humid weather, and he had just a bit of inflammation on his belly, so he got some meds to help with both. Almost a week has gone by and he is almost back to new.

Dogs are truly a great addition to a family. Who else will listen with such intensity to your problems with no judgement. Dogs in particular are great walking buddies (don’t forget to take a bag to clean up their poops). They also have been known to have great health benefits and are great for anxiety and other mental illnesses. I guess that’s why they have companion pets right.

He is certainly not an inside dog but he does come inside (and goes quite crazy at times running and sliding on the floor) and enjoy the coolness on those really hot days.

He has been on a diet for a while now as he is a little bit too well fed, so we give him a little food in the morning then a little more half way through the day. I think he has lost a little which is good. The walks help as well.

I have included a little video of Byron, with all his slobber, and tongue licking and food demolishing...lol...I am new to creating videos so any suggestions would be welcome....

I would ❤️❤️❤️ to hear about your pets. So let me know about them in the comments.












Would love for you to like and subscribe to my video. Thanks...๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜
Until next time

Painting, Illustrations and a New Video

Well. I have been busy doing many paintings and illustrations and I thought it was about time I shared some of them.
I have joined a Facebook group called weekly character design and absolutely loving the prompts. Below are some of the illustrations I have created.





That last one was a present I painted for my 4 sister' for Christmas. They each loved theirs.
Now, I thpught I wpuld try something new and started a YouTube channel. I recently created a few simple Valentine's cards. And actually suitable for kids to create too.
Here is the link to it in the "heart card" text below.
                                   Heart Card   

 I am going to link this to Paint Party Friday too. Haven't linked in quite some time and you will find the direct link to PPF to the left.

Would love to know what you think of the little video.
Until next time
