Gifts and giveaways

What a wonderful experience to be part of the One World One Heart Event for the first time! The winner of my painting The Bliss of Silence is Lorna from Artymess. Send me your email Lorna and I'll get my little Buddha out to you asap!
Sharing my art with others always feels so good and this gift giving made me think of all the gifts in my life so thought I's share some thoughts on that too :)



Soooooooo grateful for my little purple studio which used to be a very ordinary backyard shed until my wonderful man waved his magic wand and transformed it into my very own arty space.



Grateful for the gift of music and the fact that my love and I can share this together. You can listen to some of our songs here



Super grateful that on the days I can wake up early I get to walk to work along the beach and watch the dolphins play in the beautiful waters of Jervis Bay



Grateful for our garden and the surprises it holds.....



Super, super grateful for our 2 gorgeous girls and all of the fun we have together




grateful that our family took a leap of faith in 2008 and went adventuring for 7 months together. The girls did their schooling on the road while we explored the coast from California to Canada and then headed to Mexico for some fun in the sun. It was rather a miracle that we pulled it off...you can take a peek at our travels here












Filled with gratitude that I get to paint and play and share my art with you x
Until next time..have a blissful weekend!

One World One Heart Giveaway

Welcome to the One World One Heart giveaway blog hop! Click here for the complete list of participating bloggers.

Hi everyone!
What a beautiful idea to share ideas and meet other creative souls around the planet.
Looks like I wont be getting much sleep for the next few days looking at all of these amazing blogs...only joking...I love my sleep! I might give up the vacuuming instead!
I am a mother of 2 gorgeous girls, Aussie artist/singer married to a wonderful Mexican/American(honorary Australian as he has been here for 24 years now!)
We live on the beautiful South Coast of NSW in a mudbrick casa...I'm lucky to have my own purple studio in the backyard and my husband enjoys his recording studio which is right next door to mine...our three cats believe that they are actually the rulers of our little kingdom and they're probably right although Miss 17 would most probably disagree and Miss 13 would confidently and quietly "Know" that she is really in charge. My husband patiently awaits the day when maybe a "boy" grandchild will help to correct the unfair amount of female energy in our household. My giveaway is this small mixed media piece just completed on the weekend. May it bring a little peace into your world :)
