Did you guys know that its the year of the Painter this year?
Whats that you say? rabbit? Huh?
Nah, I'm talking about inside my own little bubble.
This is the year that I concentrate on my painting more.
I don't often talk about my painting and work on here because, Honestly, Since Nick was born, I haven't been doing enough of it.
I figure, Kids are only little once and I didnt want to miss a thing.
Well, the ratbag is off to Kinder this year. Did you guys just hear the angels sing hallelujah too?
2 whole days a week to paint! Yay!!!
To celebrate, I finally painted my Hubbys bonnet of his big red car.
I don't know about you guys but when it comes to making things for family they seem to get left til last. alot last.
My spunky fella has been (patiently) waiting for this for nearly a year now! Oops!
Lucky he loves me :)
His t-shirt quilt car cover is still in the works too. As in, still planning in my mind stage.
Anyway, his bonnet is finished and I am wifey of the year.
Just to make things difficult he wanted the picture under the bonnet, not the smooth and easy top. No no, the rippled and bumpy side.
So its not perfect but considering it is going to be viewed by people bending down and looking at it from funny angles while the bonnet is up, It will do nicely!
I also bought a car last week!
Awesome huh? This is my second ever car. My first is my 47 year old holden that I LOVE to pieces but he is getting pretty tired.
My parents had a little black Peugeot. My Dad refered to it as his European Thoroughbred but they didn't drive it very much. So when we needed to borrow it around christmas time to bus our tribe around, Dad decided that it could stay and play at our house so with a very reasonable deal made, I now own a European thoroghbred!
Cool huh? It is so zippy and easy to park! SO much easier at the supermarket now!
I also see a blank canvas.... What do you reckon? a nice set of flames for her?
stay tuned, I will be posting photos!
