Easter in the Autumn?

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 3, 2015, 7:26 PM
Okay it sounds a little odd, and yep I'm still getting used to having Easter in the Autumn down here in beautiful New Zealand, but that's what makes the world go around!  We've been here for 8 years now, and yeah there are some things I really miss in the States but when all is said and done, it's family you will move mountains for, to be beside, right! :nod: 

:heart:  So, HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!! :heart:

I'm so excited to hopefully catch the lunar eclipse tonight!! We won't see another one until 2018, but funny thing though, my hubby and I were outside last night around 11:15pm waiting on the eclipse to hurry up and happen, and where we live the sky is relatively dark and OMG you can see the milky way and Orion's belt so clearly :faint:.  We waited for a while and nothing happened, so hubby marched into to look at his iPad and realised we had the wrong night :lol: Stupid Me!   I was truly exhausted because I had gotten up around 3am that morning because there was too much light in the bedroom, because of the full moon and I need complete darkness to sleep, so I got up! :shrug:

Anyway, tonight's the night and I will not miss it for anything! :D  As far as things with me are concerned, I'm doing well and I'm in no pain which makes me the happiest girl in the world :Dork Dance 2They (doctor) doesn't see me coming off the nerve medication I'm taking, but it's okay I'm fine with that, as long as it continues to work for me, I won't complain :D  

My art is really coming along nicely :) I've finished a rather tricky commission piece which I mentioned in my last journal, so I'm VERY happy about that, and what was cool is that my father-in-law said it was like looking at a photograph :Dance!  I'm now on Instagram #sapphirestarz  and Pinterest…, plus I still have my art page on Facebook too as many social sites as I can to network and get my name familiar, it really helps :)

Below is some wonderful new works of art and photography, that need some love and attention, and if you have the time, they are well worth the visit!!

Stopping By To Say Hi!!

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 25, 2015, 9:01 PM

A great big HELLO to everyone :)

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that left a message on my last journal, I was overwhelmed and although I didn't reply which is extremely unusual for me, I read all of them!! :huggle:sss :blowkiss:

Happy Spring to my friends in the north, we just went into Autumn and already the temperatures are cooling down, and the rain is making it's entrance, just to give us that reminder that Winter is just around the corner...yeah thanks for that! lol  Anyway, we (us folks in New Zealand) were spared by Hurricane Pam, and I have to thank her for that, because it was touch and go for a little while!  Glued to the weather channel, and securing all the outdoor furniture, making sure nothing was going to project itself through any windows...we waited!  We got rain, and some medium style winds...but that was it!! EH!! Hey I like drama what can I say :lol:...although okay it's good we didn't get what those POOR people in Vanuatu got :(  Yes I donated $3.00 by text to help out, and New Zealand alone raised over $150,000 for them (well that was the last count I heard anyway), just by people texting in and donating $3.00!! 

Anyway...I have some great news! I am officially showing my work in a gallery!! :w00t: :party: It's a medium sized gallery downtown not far from us, so I am just riding cloud 9 for a few days...I promise I always come down with a crash though :D  I'm a very humble gal!

Also I've decided to go into business for myself, since I'm going to be paying taxes on any artworks sold...I better study up on everything I have to know about being in business :faint:...busy Bev!! :D

My commissions are going well, except I'm at the hair pulling stage on one of them!  You see their is a CEO of this plant that is retiring, and they only photo they gave me to paint from, was an aerial view of the plant...which by the way is closed down now.  Well my hubby and I searched the entire internet to get some photo's of this plant, when it was a functioning plant, and almost gave up when we came across something I could work with :phew:...Now you would think that being the number one fertiliser plant in NZ, they would have photo's of the place...but NOOOOO!!! Geez, how frustrating!!...okay, so now I'm about half way done and it looks pretty good except this one part, that has a staircase leading up to the top of a HUGE tank and it's in semi darkness so I can't visualise I'm just painting it as I see it!! Also get this...the whole thing has scaffolding wrapped around the entire I have to try and eliminate anything that remotely looks like scaffolding!! Like I said, hair pulling stuff!! :faint:

Lot's of other things going on regarding my art, but for now that's in the future forecast :)  I'm doing fine, a few niggles here and there but that's what med's are for right!! :D

I hope everyone is doing okay...Marilyn :iconblueivyviolet: you've been on my mind so much lately hun, how are you doing?? I hope much better than last time we spoke! :please:  Love to all my dear wonderful friends, never ending hugs of course :) and I will be back soon to do a feature!! 

I want to shout out a Happy Belated Birthday to :iconwagmorebarkless:, so sorry I was late but I hope you had a fantastic day my friend!! I think I've caught up to date with a couple more birthday's in progress! :please: :pray:

Take care and spread the love! :heart:

Love and Light, Bev :tighthug:
