Cards and Porcelain vase.

I am really thrilled with how the blue vase has turned out.

At least I will have a couple of things to enter in shows in 2012. Haven't been creating much in the way of cards lately but will post a few. I have been visiting Elaine in hospital and it really saps your energy. I meant to go today but my leg is so sore that I really need to lounge about so that I can go to the hospital tomorrow.
Now for some of those cards. Can anyone tell me how to shrink my photos???

They don't look too bad now I have posted them I was sure I had only managed a couple. I must upload a photo of a beautiful butterfly that was in the garden this morning. Art and I are not sure if it is a butterfly or a moth-because of the way it landed-it looks like a moth. Can anyone tell me?

It actaully looked like it was posing for me:)

Aiden's card.

The weather is so changeable at the moment I had to take off my warm weather gear this morning and now I have had to put it back on. I guess that is spring in Australia for you.
We babysat Aiden at the weekend and he made some cards. I only remembered to take a photo of the card he left behind. So for a six year old I think this is pretty good. I will post it to him tomorrow as he might want to give it to his special friend Adriana:)

Don't you love the hair flick? We poured the water over his head and then immediately up shot this bunch of hair. Very funny.
My brother is still in hospital as is my sister in law so I must try and visit tomorrow.

The Gazette has been posted!!

I cannot believe the trouble I have publishing the Gazette. It is the magazine of the Porcelain Artists Association. I am the Editor. Every time I try to insert a file it simply refuses to be inserted. I am doing something terribly wrong but I have no idea what. The good news is it has been completed and is on its way to be mailed out to members and I can relax -until December that is...
I have been visiting my sister in law and my brother as they are both in hospital. Fortunately in the same hospital, unfortunately they are both quite ill and not in good places. I feel for the 'children'. Not quite children as they are in their late forties early 50's but still Bob and Elaine's children never the less.
As a result of all that I have been somewhat lazy. Have also been on holidays from China painting and am thinking of simplifying the things i take to class because at present I take everything and I feel that that is so unnecessary. Like I said I am thinking-not a lot of action going on.
I have made a couple of cards-Nicolle and Maree have birthdays in the next week. And the biggest news of all Jaye has had a baby boy and he is beautiful. So that was another card. I will post photos of the blue vase and the red vase when I get back to class. Am keeping my fingers crossed that the red vase looks Ok as I had to edge each petal with gold -using a kempler pen I think that is what it is called. I haven't used this before so am not too confident that it has worked out OK.

 I am now having trouble with yet another e-mail so i am away to have a cup of tea:)
