Another last year's Round Robin. I started with the left penguin, BexMadeMe added the right penguin with balloon, and MissM finished it with the background party penguin.

This is it for this year. Wishing you all the best. See you next year.
Happy New Year!

Animals decorating Christmas tree

Another last year's Round Robin. MissM started it with a Christmas tree, I added the reindeer and the penguin, and BexMadeMe finished with the background and mice.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

We're coming close to the end of the year. With all the crap that happened to our family this year, I must say I'm glad it's coming to an end. Hopefuly next year will be better. I won't say, it can't get any worse, because I don't want to jinx it.

Hope everyone is enjoying themselves!

Reindeer ornaments and Christmas tree greeting cards

I made some ornaments with my kid. Granted I did most of the work since he's only 3 years old. He did paint the wood sticks and picked the pom-poms for the noses. The gluing I had to do myself.

For the greeeting cards I tried finger painting with him but he still doesn't like having dirty hands, so I improvised after the first two cards.
I made a Christmas tree cut out and gave him a painting brush to paint the trees. We used a sponge for the tree trunk because as you can see, he was pretty agressive with the paint brush and the paint got under the cut-out. But it's ok, it makes the tree more festive. I used his finger for the ornaments though and he was really impatient to wash the paint off.

How is your festive season going?

Elves

This is last years Round Robin that MissM started with elf's legs, I finished his body and Linda4atc did the rest. I didn't get it back until February, so I couldn't show it last year.

How's your December going so far? It's been unusually warm at the beginning of this week for this time of year. It didn't even go below 0°C at night. On Tuesday we had 14°C. It felt like spring and I had to take off my winter jacket. Yesterday, of course, we had snow in the morning.

green & black big hair girls


Tomorrow is December and that means advent calendar for the kid. It's his first one. Last year I made a similar version where I put ideas of what to do every day on paper, cut it up and put it in a bowl for him to take out every day.

This year I bought little bags with numbers and threw in toys and candy bars with some crafty stuff to do. I feel like I'm spoiling him too much with toys. And I know it's my problem because I enjoy seeing a smile on his face when he gets new toys. It's not like he needs them but we're all like that with gifts, aren't we. 

We celebrate three different "present-bringing-holiday-men" in our household. First one is St. Nicholas on Dec. 6th. Then Santa Clause on Christmas day and last one is Father Frost on New Year's day. He already chose his presents and wrote to the first two "present-bringers". I haven't told him about the last one yet. But he has a present chosen for that one as well.

How's your Christmas shopping going?

Bathing Ladies Round Robin

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, sends to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

MissM started this one with the bathtub, Linda4atc added the ladies and I finished with the background.

Happy Black Friday everyone! :))) Hope you get good deals today.

All about the ladies

I was reading a story to my kid and when I went to turn the page, I tapped it. It wasn't a Kindle, it was an actual physical book that I tapped. I felt silly for a moment. 

He got Alice in Wonderland from my aunt about a month ago and it's currently his favorite bedtime story. It's not the original story though, it's adapted and shortened.

What's your favorite story or book at the moment?

Farmer Couple

Sorry I forgot to post last week. Days are going so quickly, I keep forgeting to post. Granted, when the kid is at home and not in daycare, I tend to not know which day of the week it is.
Randomness:
  • the kid was back in daycare this week but got the sniffles today and stayed at home.
  • we went clothes shopping and I spent way too much money. Now I need to lose weight to fit into them because they're all strechy and my fat rolls show too much. :)
  • cue in the juice fast I'm on since yesterday because I just have to do something to restart my metabolism.
  • my grandma is coming for a visit tomorrow. It was funny, because she's hard of hearing, she can't talk on the phone, so she sent a letter saying she's bored to death. :))) We're driving tomorrow to her place to bring her here.
  • we have new neighbors. We haven't met them yet because the weather has been foggy and rainy and I haven't seen them outside.
  • I have 3 photobooks to catch up on. Luckily, I already selected the photos, now I need to put it all in the program to make a photo book.

Witches with familiars

The latest stunt my kid pulled was swallowing a pebble. As a toddler he didn't have a habit of putting stuff in his mouth but now at 3 and a half years, he keeps chewing things. And as it was bound to happen, he accidentally swallowed a pebble while we were on the playground. Of course there's nothing to do but wait until he poops it out. Not that I'll be checking.

How was your week?

Witch's Cauldron RR

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, send to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

MissM started this one with the cauldron, DeniseMDupree added the spider and gravel and I finished with the hand holding the eyeball and the kitty.

Hey guys! Guess what? My kid's got chickenpox. I bet you envy me, right?! That's sarcasm, if anyone is confused.

Kid's going to be home for the rest of the month. That makes is 4 (FOUR) days in total he spent in daycare this MONTH. And it's only October. I can't even phantom what will happen in winter months. Why am I even paying daycare, if he's home sick all the time?

Anyway, hope you're having fun wherever you are.

With flowers in their hair

Well, these girls might have fabulous hair but I don't since my kid decided to play a hairdresser with me.

I was sanding down a fence and the kid decided to play with scissors. I didn't even notice him cutting my hair. He told me himself really casual, mom I cut your hair. And I didn't even believe him until I pulled hair out of my pony tail.

Yeah, this is his pout when I told him off.

Acrylic pour painting #12 - double ring pour


Randomness:
  • This is one of my earliest acrylic pour paintings. I really like it, so I thought I'd share with you.
  • My little pooch got a haircut and she's happy about it.
  • Kid is addapting to daycare. He still has a bit of anxiety but he's happy when he's there. And he finally started eating there. 
  • Unfortunately he caught a cold again and has been home since yesterday.
  • I took a work out class yesterday and I'm so out of shape it's not even funny. 
  • In other news, one of my mom's cats died this week.

Foxes

Randomness:
  • Last week my computer broke. I think it was a virus and I had to get it fixed, that's why there was not post last week. 
  • The kid went back to daycare after being ill for a week and it was an all around disaster. I'm just so frustrated with this whole thing. If it's this hard getting him to daycare now, I don't even want to think about teenage years.  
  • To top it all, the first day he ate breakfast at daycare, he got a rash on his chest. He has a dairy allergy and I checked with the cook about his breakfast but it was the same thing he eats at home, so I have no idea where the reaction came from. 
  • I have to take my little pooch for a haircut and I have to schedule an appointement for myself to get some birthmarks removed but I have to sort out this daycare fiasco with my kid first.
  • I'm just emotionally exhausted.

Rainbow colors

Randomness:
  • It was kid's first week in daycare. It went well. Only he woke up with fever and a runny nose today, so we're staying home.
  • I'm still learning guitar.
  • I'm also doing acrylic pours but I'm not happy how they're turning out lately. It's discouraging to waste paint.
  • Grandma is visiting and we celebrated her 89th birthday last weekend.

Big hair ladies & a guitar

Guess what I'm doing these days. ... I'm learning how to play a guitar at 40 years old. LOL

I always wanted to learn how to play instruments but found it hard because I thought you have to go through theory first and that was tedious.

However, I recently found an online course that had some free videos to check out before purchase, and I found it interesting and easy the way they were teaching.

Of course that got me excited, and I had to buy a guitar so I could learn how to play it. It's been over a week and I love it.

Oh, and I just recently realized that I'm considered a middle aged woman now. That's a whole melt down of its own. How are you doing these days?

Acrylic fluid art painting - blow painting technique w/ straw

I really liked how wispy this painting turned out until I went to photograph it after it dried and I found that a fruit fly landed in the wet paint. It made little circles behind when it tried to save itself. I zoomed in on the trail in the video below. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Frida Kahlo ATCs

Randomness:
  • I'm struggling with creativity lately. I'm not satisfied with the way my art turns out. Luckily I have some old ATCs on the back burner that I can whip out for a blog post. Although, I'm not sure about the third Frida.
  • I'm slowly preparing the kid for daycare in September. He's still not keen on it but hopefully we'll do better than last year's fiasco.
  • It's hot. But I love summers because of salads and fruit. Luckily, my kid agrees.
  • I need to go out more. I feel like a hermit. I don't think I can afford another vacation but I sure would like to go on one again.
  • What are your plans for the rest of summer?

Acrylic pour painting - slanted / tilted pour w/ ribbon pour (wing pour fail)

I attempted another wing pour but I over-tilted and lost the wings, so I did a ribbon pour with a contrasting color to make up for it.

Hope everyone is keeping cool in this hot weather and having a great weekend. :)

Orange Catz & R.I.P. Roadie

Another one of my pets died. My very first and the oldest cat Roadie. She was 17 years old and she had kidney failure, the same as Bolha who died in February. She was the alpha cat and my favorite. I'll miss her.

Rainbow cards

Randomness:
  • Tonight, Friday 27th of July, is the full moon total lunar eclipse in Aquarius. If you're into astrology you probably already looked it up what it means for you. I'm Aquarius sun, so I'll be feeling it for sure. 
  • We've been slowly painting the walls downstairs and redecorating. It looks fresh and it changes up the energy. We need some of that fresh energy.
  • Consequently, while mom and I were otherwise occupied, the kid decided to paint paving stones in the front. He got this idea when the other day I tried to occupy him by "drawing" roads with water and a painting roller. Luckily it rained not long after and we managed to get most of it off but not all.
  • We're dog-sitting one of the neighbor's dogs over the weekend. She doesn't want to stay the night here with us, so we only bring her here during the day and she sleeps at her own home. It's next door's, so it's no big deal.
  • How are you these days? What are your plans for this weekend?
