These flowers have been in this vase for well into the second week now. Orchids from a friends garden and the rest from mine.

Hello to all. I have been busy doing other things that were not based around the computer. I certainly cannot complain that I have nothing to do. Lots of visitors to our home and a little bit of visiting our family and friends. Lots of creativity.

I had to share this awesome plate with you all. I went to a coffee shop with my daughter on my birthday in September and the staff found out it is my birthday and they all came out and sang happy birthday to me and presented me with this yummy muffin.

I have been making Christmas things to keep. The odd decoration here and there to keep year after year in my new Christmas keepsake box. I have not bothered about doing to much decorating for Christmas for such a long time. The change begins this year. We are actually not home for the main holiday days as we spend each year with my parents one day and then Micks parents the next. But I want my house to look festive and to get into the spirit of things. So I made these two pillow cases. $1.00 each from a $2 shop and then a bit of rick rack sewn across the top and tada - I have my very own Christmas pillow cases to use each year to brighten up my bedroom.

More of these amazing flowers. The bulbs have all came up in the garden but I can't see them all day every day so I cut some and placed in vases around the house and they just simply last for ages and look extraordinary. Oh they make me feel good to just glance at them constantly all day.

Our Tiaro Creative Arts Group met today and joined another group from the local area at Curra. We were invited to a members home that is set on top of a mountain and has incredible views to choose from for painting and drawing. It was such a relaxing day. I am still very new to this and have  this tendancy to stop myself from trying and saying things to myself like, "I can't do that - I don't know what to do". You know, just the negative self talk we all drown ourselves in every day. Well not today. I got out my colour pencils and sketched this drawing below of the shed above.

I really like it.

I am also making a set of placemats for a gift for someone for Christmas. Each one has a little saying on it about friends and home. I really like this one.

And roses.....

And sunflowers.....
3 more to go to finish the set. I am going to finish them of tomorrow.

Our Creative Art Group will be holding an exhibition of our members work starting at the end of October and going through to the end of November.
