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.

Australia Day - Cultural Award Nomination :)

Travelled to Banana on Australia Day to attend the Official Ceremony at 2pm. I had received a letter of Nomination for the Australia Day - Cultural Award for the Shire on Christmas Eve which really surprised me. The ceremony was held at the Hall in Banana, all nominations were presented with Certificates of Nomination and the Moura Nomination received the award. Congratulations to her. I was nominated by the RADF Committee here in the Banana Shire.
Below is a photo of Col Nutley, Cultural Services & Council Promotions for the Banana Shire and myself. Col is part of the RADF committee and I Thank you everyone involved in my Nomination. I really do appreciate your time & support with considering me for this nomination.

Daughter Maggie, checking out the afternoon.




We stayed on for the afternoon and there was a Tug of War, Banana Throwing, Thong Throwing and Horse & Coach Rides. Banana Throwing cracked me up....not to sure about throwing them around, gets pretty messy after a few throws. Everyone had good fun. Well Done Banana Australia Day Committee. Next year it is to be hosted in Biloela. Look forward to it next year.

Hi Kym,
Congratulations on your nomination! I'm on the RADF committee - so I knew about it, but thought I'd best keep mum about it at the time...:)

A well deserved nomination, I thought!!

Hope to actually catch up with you 'in person' at some stage in the near future - I'm looking at the BAVA Calendar....

Congratulations one more,

Tracey.
