nearly bedtime...

i've decided my blog definately needs a new layout. this one's a bit drab don't you think? anyway, i'll get around to updating it soon. right now isn't the time. i should be in bed. i nearly was actually. i pulled the covers back and then thought "i really should update my art records before i go to bed"...and then i started updating those and found myself here - updating my blog.

tomorrow is my cousin tarn's wedding - she is marrying a lovely guy called Michael McRae. Tanya McRae - that name sounds nice and it will suit her - if she's going to change it...which i think she is.

anyway - speaking of bed - i've found this bed...
now that's something to dream about....!

bella's bracelets are back.

i think i've decided what i want for my 1st Mothers Day - a mag subscription to 'Frankie'. It really is an awesome magazine. then again, there's a ton of mag subscriptions i would like...

so tonight i'll be busy taking some pics of some new items for my eBay Store. If you didn't know already, I also have stores on Etsy and Madeit as well! Both of which are FABULOUS websites! If you're not signed up with them already, do it! You won't regret it.
There's quite a few things starting at only 99c in my eBay Store, so now's the time to shop. I've also got more "Bella's Bracelets" back in stock! Yay! These have been really popular! You can click here to go to the listing.

on the home front, we are busy looking at real estate...! it's a bit of a drag, but it does have exciting moments...

does anyone know of an awesome house for sale in Brisbane at an awesome price? if so email me at: artbyjaz@yahoo.com.au

Go Green!

Happy Earth Day everyone!
I've tried to make an effort to recycle today. Well. I try to make Earth friendly decisions every day, but today I wanted to make extra effort. Whenever possible - Go GREEN!
Just a quick post because I'm about to go to bed. *yawn* dealing with a teething baby certainly takes it out of you!
We've been watching old skool episodes of the Simpsons tonight. I like the old episodes better than the new ones. I feel like the new ones are trying to be like "Family Guy". And I love "Family Guy" but I don't like it when The Simpsons tries to be something they're not. Does that make sense? I'm so tired I probably won't remember actually typing this. lol.
Before this week is out - there will be some more *new* jewellery items in my eBay Store!

my latest online discovery - madeit!

I'm abuzz with excitement about a new website I've come across called madeit.com.au! It's so cool. I saw it on TV originally, and thought I'd give it a try - and I love it. It's very similar to Etsy - but it's Australian! I don't know why I didn't think of doing this! Anyway - I've started by opening a little shop on there. You can click HERE to visit it. I'll be posting more in this store as the night goes on...(oh, and no, they're not paying me to advertise this...but they probably should. lol).

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Wow. I've eaten so much sugar this weekend. Time to get on the Wii Fit I think!
Actually, I should be in bed right now. It's 11:34pm and I'm typing this just after posting new eBay listings, while watching an Ellen re-run. We've got to be up early tomorrow to take Janeen to the airport. I haven't had much sleep this week - because Wade's on holidays & has been staying up and I've been staying up with him.

Anyway - enough about that. Here are some new listings tonight: (you can click on the picture to go to the listing)



Night!

Happy Easter!

This morning Wade, Ari, Janeen & I went to The Ginger Factory. I had the yummiest ice cream there - it was Spicy Ginger Apple Crumble. So yum. Wade bought this HOT Chilli Ginger Lemon Cordial - which I'm not yet game enough to try. It says the heat factor is 8/10 on the bottle...

After a little look around the shops there, where I found a cute kewpie doll for only $6.25! (see pic below). These little guys are so kitschy-cute. I just love them.


We also had a look at the Macadamia Nut Factory across the road where we bought some Chilli & Honey Sesame Macadamias to bring home - I'm eating some now =)

I have 2 Auctions ending today in my eBay Store. One is the "Hot Pink Skull & Crossbones" Cameo Necklace (see below) - which is currently only at $5.75. The other is a "Gold Octopus" Necklace (see below) - which is only at 99c so far! You can click on the photos to go to the auctions.


Tomorrow is Easter Sunday. Ari's 1st Easter! Lots of fun & choccies galore...
Happy Easter Everybody!

Good Friday

At the moment we have Wade's Mum (Ari's Nanna Neeny!) staying with us from Sydney. So far we've been to the Eumundi Markets, Sunshine Plaza & Mooloolaba Wharf...with more places to go over the next few days! Ari got incredibly spoilt with lots of new clothes and Easter pressies (yes - already!) from her Nanna.
My eBay Store is going really well with lots of jewels in there...including some new ones that I will be adding tonight (a black bat necklace & a silver seahorse necklace!)...
My painting for the music festival is almost finished. I'm not going to post any work-in-progress pics now - i'll wait until it's all finished. Which reminds me, I have to send in the entry form this weekend!
We picked up some fresh prawns today at the Mooloolaba Wharf which we'll be having in our chilli, prawn, parmesan & cashew spaghetti tonight! YUM.

Supanova

Today we went to Supanova in Bris and had a great time. Wade had to go for work really...but at the same time I helped out in getting some good movie footage and photos etc...there were so many amazing costumes there!
I'm sorry to any of my friends in Bris who read this. I really wanted to come and visit so many of you (you know who u are!) today...but we got there @ 8:30am and didn't finish up until later in the afternoon, and by then we were SO tired, and so was bubba. We got home around 5.
Tonight I'm going to work some more on my piece for the Music Art Show....
Bye for now...

pancakes swapped for sushi

Today Wade & I woke up with a hankering for pancakes...so we headed to the plaza and then ended up at Kawana (by my throw-away suggestion)...which didn't happen to have pancakes, so we had sushi. oh, and a gloria jeans skinny iced-chocolate (no cream, add choc sprinkles and caramel!)...yum!

Seeing as my "Aunty Dot" sunglasses broke at Aunty Dot's funeral (pure coincidence?)...I bought a new pair. And yes - against all my protests - I bought a pair of
wayfarers! I don't know if you've noticed...but sunglasses are really weird at the moment. There doesn't seem to be any one particular style that I like. Of course, I'm still loving the moviestar/jackie O BIG sunnies...but I feel they're a little outdated now...and it's hard to find the right pair.

Tonight - it's all about
my eBay store. It's back up and running at full speed and I am currently adding ALL of the past jewels (+ more new ones!)...

Now what am I going to order from the Chinese shop for dinner.......? Honey Chicken I think!

The smell of chocolate and giant squid!


Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way....I can smell the chocolate already!


Wade's Mum arrives from Syd next Tues to stay for Easter. Should be a week filled with lots of shopping and fun! I will have to try and get some painting done at some point though.


My eBay Store is now back up....but not yet running...i will be updating it later today - putting all of my lovely jewels back in the store, so check it HERE later this afternoon.


I managed to get some work done on my painting for the music festival gallery last night. It's coming along quite nicely. I still haven't managed to take any photos of it yet! (sorry). I WILL post photos soon though, I promise!


Last night Wade & I watched an awesome documentary on the search for Giant Squid. I am just SO intrigued...I just know that researchers are so close to finding evidence of what's really out there. I know they're out there...
