Welcome to my Blog~

I am keen to have ART in my life and enjoy all fundamentals of ART, the creative & social side of it.
Finding out the how's and what's of ART is so intruging to me.
Mixed media is my first love, collage, glueing, sticking ~ bringing the creation to life. Having Fun with Art :)
Then sketching, drawing & doodling ~ especially in the phone book:) Husband hates that.
I have enjoyed different concepts of Art from Book Making to Mosaics, Painting and sketching.
Just being creative leaves you with a wonderful feeling.

Week Away as Camp Parent ....

The week away was wonderful with whales just off Hervey Bay, dolphins & turtles all over the place. I got to feed "Greg the Groper" at Reefworld in Hervey Bay, one huge fish.


When we saw the whales in Hervey Bay, there was about 7 pods & there was 3 babies in those groups. Huge days & packed with lots of adventures for everyone. Went out in a glass bottom boat & had lunch on a island off Hervey Bay.
Went to Bundaberg and cruised down the Burnett River on the Ruby Belle...lots of history there.


Then went to the Bundy Ginger Beer Barrel. The ladies there were really friendly and the taste testing was really good too. (There are lots of different flavours). Lots of interactive resources for the kids to have a history lesson at the same time have fun. Game of Ten Pin bowling, I fell over playing (flat on my back) & got a strike at the same time. No one gave me CPR -just laughed at me.


Friday we were at Lady Musgrave Island,this place was excellent.
Just beautiful... So blue....blue....blue the colour and the weather was awesome.
Kids were great, I really enjoyed the sites & experiencing it all with my daughter Monique :)
