Weekly Review 01/11/18 – 11/11/18

I’ve been away from social media for almost 2whole weeks! It was lovely, we went away on holiday to north wales which was amazing. I’ve had a little break from art and social media. Not that I haven’t been doing any art, just that I haven’t been bothered to photo it. I guess if it’s not on social media it never happened…. right?

The only pic I took with my phone while away in north wales. What a little beauty! I love the colours, they way he’s gripping the reeds, they seem to just float peacefully. Even with several stinky humans pressing there fat faces on the glass.

I’m working on a couple of commission pieces, which I’ll be able to show you after Christmas. To say they have challenged me would be a massive understatement! I still struggle with people!

I can show you a few other works in progress though. Some chipmunk coasters I am working on.

Yes, I have used a stencil with these ones. It’s hard enough trying to get them all in the right position. Do I feel like a cheat. Hell no. You know why? Because I still have to hand paint each little dude individually. I need to place the leaves by hand. This just makes it easier for me to do these little beauties justice. Do I care what anyone else thinks? Nope.

I love purple, and gold, and Christmas. For our Christmas tree we have mostly purple and gold baubles and tinsel, and I bought this little beauty from Katie and K8tieSparkles on Etsy. I can not wait to put it on my tree!

I have also created a “Colour your own” Christmas card this year. My kids are loving it.

Nail art

Some more cute nail art I’ve done. The Christmas nails are probably part of my all time favourites. I love Christmas, it’s my favourite time of year! Gathering around with the family. Christmas in Australia and the UK are so totally different. In Aussie we wear flip flops and swimmers to a BBQ. More than likely we’ve been swimming at the beach already in the morning. In the UK, obviuously we have the fire going and lots of food in the oven. It’s a lot more stressful in the UK I must say, it’s more of a production. I do miss an Aussie Christmas but dare say once we move home I’ll miss a UK Christmas too!
