Fun Surprises and a Heat Wave
I received a parcel in the mail this week, an exciting one! It wasn't a surprise but it took a month to get here so there was definitely built up anticipation involved. The creative, talented and ever so sweet Jazzy Jack of Natural Medley made me a bracelet and necklace and she sure had my colours figured out. She also knows that I am exactly the sort of person who would mix skulls with soft, pretty beads. We are having a heat wave, probably something an Aussie would laugh at but I am melting. I don't take heat too well and you can even see me melting in the photo. Limp hair, limp dress, just a bit too sweaty. Yes, I am going to put this picture on the internet. However, I had a heck of a time getting a tolerable photo of myself modelling my new bling.
Limp in the Doorway
I gave up on sweaty photos and went to bed. I hung my pretty necklace where I could see it.
I tried again the next day and after many hideous results that were blurry and either did not flatter me or the necklace or both I finally achieved these. And they will just have to do. Look how Jack just nailed my colours. They literally match me! And while we are at it, somebody please tell me what colour my eyes are because I have never known what to call them. My driver's license says hazel, which clearly they are not.
Damn you neck, you are giving away my true age.
A confession: Somewhere, hiding slightly under the pretty beads and their creative design, is a red paint splotch because I would not be me if I did not have ink and paint on me in one or two spots in addition to several bruises.
Writing and painting are increasingly crowding out Blog World. This is a happy thing for me, this is doing what I am truly passionate about doing. I do not expect to leave though and am still coming round to visit my favourite blogs and still posting here sometimes too. When I am not melted into a puddle that is. Peri-menopause and a heat wave. Gah!
Check out Jack's blog if you don't know it because it is an awesome blog and you will not regret it.
