Behind the scenes...

Well it's the final days leading up to Christmas and I have been a very busy artist... but not on the canvas.... nope, now that I am painting in my new favorite medium of mural paints, nothing is safe! I have decided that my kitchen table needs to be white, with two white chairs, one purple glitter chair for my daughter and one blue chair for my son.

Note the plastic cover to try to prolong this new fad. I never thought I would be the kind of mother that puts plastic over everything, but look out sofa, you might be covered next!
Following this, the kids' trundle bed needed to be magicked into blue and their door into an auspicious color called 'Yeeha'!

I finally ran out of energy after creating my absolute favourite addition to mix... the 'hot seat'. I love love love this humble chair painted undeniably red! It is the centre piece of my inspiration corner and the icing on the cake to get my mind turning and ideas happening.

My P.A. Leighdoll just loves to sit in the 'hot seat' when I am not using it. I think she is also the same one that makes all the mess and spills the paint on the carpet while I am sleeping.

And thanks to the rainy weather so far this holiday, I have finally created my new workspace and the above-mentioned inspiration spot where all the magic happens.

Balls of colorful yarn, magazines, knitted dolls, crystals, Ruby Shoes and flowers...Just add a cup of tea, and I am in heaven.

I would love to hear what kind of things inspire you!... so if you have a moment and a cup of tea in hand, email me, or leave a comment on this blog, with the things around your home that bring a smile to YOUR face.. you never know, they could end up in a painting!!!

Merry Christmas to you all and I hope your holidays are filled with much delight, time out, rest, adventure and laughter...
