Sunday Night, and All's Well ...

Hello everyone,

It's Sunday night, and I've had a lovely weekend ... hope you have too.

It started on Friday (OK, I know that's not technically the weekend, but in this instance, it is !!).

I went to a craft workshop ... Easy Printing Fun ... with Val, where we learnt different printing methods to use at home, and we made a couple of print blocks, which we can use for card making and the like. It was a lot of fun, and quite messy (LOL), and made me realise how un-artistic I actually am (when it comes to free-hand stuff) !!!

It did, however, get my creative juices flowing again, and I spent a lot of my weekend painting !! Yep, I got back into my Folk Art / Tole Painting / Decorative Painting (whatever you like to call it). I dug through my Folk Art books, and picked out a few pictures I wanted to do, and chose my favourite ... it's on a canvas board (which I had picked up on the way to the workshop on Friday), and it's sort of an outback scene, with a sunset, a building, trees, a horse and cart, a couple of men on horses riding into the sunset, and the whole scene is sort of in silhouette ... it looks great. I have pretty much finished it, just need to sign it, and seal it ... and then get it framed (wonder if Hubby feels like doing some woodwork !?!). Then I may even take a photo of it to let you all see it ... don't laugh, will you !! It made me realise how much I miss painting (I haven't done any since midway through last year, I think !!), and how much fun it is. I have got ideas in my head, and can't wait to get them underway !!

Other than my painting, Chicky played netball on Saturday and .... they won, yay !! It was a great game, they played hard, and did very well. Afterward, Chicky and I went to my parent's place for lunch (Hubby was home sleeping, after a night shift). We had a lovely visit ... I always enjoy catching up with mum and dad, they are wonderful people ... wish they lived right next door, so I could see them all the time !!

So, there you go, that was my weekend.

I'm really excited, that so many of you have signed my guestbook, and added a photo. It's wonderful, being able to see you all, just by opening my blog !! It's fun, too, that a few of you have exchanged MSN addresses with me ... I know it's difficult catching up, as many of you are on a different time and day than I am, but hopefully we'll connect sometime. If anyone else wants to give it a go, my MSN address is

I hope you all have a brilliant week ... I am working on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, then we are off to Bonnie Doon on Friday (Chicky has the day off school, and the following Monday is a public holiday ... Queens Birthday), so my week's looking pretty full. Hopefully I'll get a chance to post again, and drop by you all for a visit.

Enjoy yourselves, and stay safe.

Take care,

I had fun signing your guestbook.

You don't sound like you're UN-artistic at all.
I not artistic at all. I can't draw or paint or sew (anything other than a button) or crochet...
I can bake good cookies though!

Enjoy your busy week ahead.

Meow, I'm really looking foward to seeing your painting. The subject matter is also of interest to me.

I might be going to Zart Art today to get some printing inks so I can make more prints of giraffes and martini glasses, heh heh.
