It is no surprise that I love photos. They take me back to moments.....special moments I want to remember. When I am looking at photographs of our kids I am always surprised at how time flies.
Photos that were taken two/three years ago make my heart skip a beat.
This is one of my favourite photos I took during our last holiday. Hope to remember this moment forever because this little girl is definitely growing up super fast!
After nearly three years in Sydney, Australia we will eventually move into our own home. This is such a big thing and we have waited for so long. Looking for a house in Sydney can be very challenging and this whole "house hunt thing" was a big test for me.
So now the big surprise when we unpack ALL the boxes in the garage, hang our pictures (can not even remember what they look like!) and make a REAL home! I can hardly wait to sort out my "hobby" room - to make a special space for my scrapping, sewing, photo editing and painting! I need SPACE!!!
We are still enjoying Sydney (summers more than winters) and know that we have been blessed with regular family visits and great friends.
I need to be creative. It makes me tick! It makes me HAPPY. So when a very creative friend from University started art classes I signed up. Bought some paint , canvas and decided that I am going to use palette knives and not brushes. It opened a whole new world for me.
This is one of my favourite paintings so far. I knew that I could not paint realistic trees so decided to create a style that will work for me. I am thinking purple mountains, red trees, orange grass.....my mind is running wild and I suppose that will show in my paintings. More to follow.
Just a quick digital page. It is great to be at the start of summer. I am definitely NOT a winter person and was not aware of the fact that it is dark at 5pm in winter (our first winter in Sydney). The days are very short in winter...So just a few more weeks and it is getting warmer every day!
Took this photo of Tasha on the 1st of September with her new dress and hair that ONLY looks like this for about 5 minutes after I tie it up. This child has busy hair (the reason why she looks good with hats).
Still love to scrap and create but somehow I seem to social a little bit to much, hopefully one day I will have time to scrap a bit more.
The weekend was extra special because we met up with some friends from South Africa who moved to the Gold Coast early last year. We compared notes on our Australian experiences, played Backgammon, explored the historical little town called Morpeth, talked and talked and talked.
The farm is called Top View and it has an amazing view that stretches for miles and miles and miles. For the kids the friendly horses must have been the greatest highlight of the weekend.
Here are some extra photos of our weekend.
