I hate being sick.

OMG I so hate being sick, feeling like crap is not my best look!! And I haven't even done my pic for Gallery 12 which is due in less than 24 hrs!!

Last week I forgot to put up my weigh-in for Wednesday well it was 71.3kg , bit pissed as I have been busting my but for weeks only to find that I've gained .2kg but my trainer said that I have gained muscle and tone so I'm not giving up, now I'm feeling better I'll be back at it ready for my weigh-in next Wednesday.

I've decided to have a day in town tomorrow and I'm going to go and see the Andy Warhol exhibition, a bit of insperation for the soul and me thinks I'll try and soak some up.

I have to share a pic and a thought......Here is a leaf thats almost human with viens of blood showing that all things in nature bleed and we must be careful and tread on this earth softly.

Better late than never.

Here is last weeks art journal entry for week 7 ' fly ', I cut the bird from a photo and made the wings with folded newspaper and had a super time finger painting the background!!

I almost forgot I have not introduced our new addition ' Jubes the Snake' , he is getting to know use and had his first feed on Sunday and WoW it was so amazing to watch!!!
His name came from the way he was delivered to us, check out the pic.

Not the best photo but will hopefully get some better ones this week, you can kind of get the feel for how small he is when you look at the toilet roll house in the background, just so cute!!!!

Have been playing with jubes to much need to let him be so I can get some work done.

Hey Hey!! Baby Snake arrives today!!!

Gosh have been so busy getting ready for the arrival of baby snake, the kidlets are so excited about finally having there little pet!!
We were going to have a girl snake but the breeder only got a few so we settled on a boy, can't wait to see him so we can give him a name??
Snake is flying down from Townsville and will be ready to pick up at 7.00pm , I know he will be a bit cranky from the travelling but hopefully he will feel right at home in no time at all.

Must go, still a few things to get done and the girls have swimming after school too.

In your skin comp at Embellished.

Last week I signed up for the Embellished ' In your skin ' competion , here is my week 1 page about finding out what goes on inside my head.

Bit hard to read the little bits of journaling! sorry about that!

They go something like this: Whats in side ??? maybe a brain / Fluff and stuff , Cobbwebs, An alternate universe, sawdust, sunshine, cuddles / love, hope and dreams / You know what I just don't have a clue!!!!/

Hey remember those insentives well I forgot that I have to weigh in to see if I've lost anything, so I've decided Wednesday every 2 weeks will be the go starting this week. I'm enjoying my workouts and have got in the habit of going 4-5 times a week so now its time I got a little something for my efforts!!

Week 7 voting at Gallery 12.

Ok its time to vote at Gallery 12 for your fav pic for week 7 ' Summertime ' and don't forget to tell your friends!!

Had a great time this morning teaching a wonderful group of ladies my boyz paper bag book at Passion for Paper, I hope all had a fun time and now set to work adding lots of piccy's to their awesome little books.

Time for my art journal for this week, the word was ' emotion ' and as you have seen I was inspired to do a photo shoot with this in mind!!

Back in front of the camera.

I had so much fun to day, I was a makeup artist with not much makeup to work with, a model and a photographer!!

I did my own glamour shoot, which was inspired by 2 things America's next top model and Emily's word of the week ' emotion', I wanted to see if I could capture emotions on film like models do so first it was into makeup which is not that easy in this house as I don't wear it! I was able to find a light foundation, some very old black eyeliner, my daughters eyeshadow, some very funky fake lashes and a lipstick that wasn't melted!!
I hung a dack sheet up on the back deck because I get good light there most of the time and away I went.

Its was really funny when Kalin my very wise 3 year old came looking to see what I was up to and stopped dead in front of me and told me to go wash my face because I looked scary!!!

Ooops almost forgot to remind you that there is only 1 more day left to vote for your fav Circles pic over at Gallery 12, so if you have not voted yet please take the time to do so ASAP!!!

Now here is an insentive!!

Ok I need a bit of insentive to get the weight off so I have got myself a few treats wrapped up, so as I reach each goal I get something to reward my efforts.

I would like to thank Mel AKA Poppysmum for the insperation for this layout, not sure if I will do any journaling or just leave it as it is. This is the only piture of my Mum and Dads wedding day and its just so beautiful, and finally I found the right papers for it.
