The Big 30 + A New Painting!


On Saturday it was the Big Day! The day I turned 30. The start of a new decade, boy that sounds scary :0 Still I’m sure God has great things in store for us so I won’t complain.


I had a lovely huge cake which Mum in Law made (Thank you!) and it took me quite a while to blow out all those candles lol

Thankfully the rain held off till later on so we were able to enjoy a lovely BBQ with family and friends. A very blessed day all round.

Thank you all for the Birthday wishes on Facebook, I was so surprised to see so many :D

This new week brings some new paintings to share with you over the coming days…


5 x 5”

{Original Sold thank you! Prints available at Etsy}

‘Sweet Hearts’ A cute little painting on wood, with a touch of vintage. I used vintage style collage papers to make the flowers and finished it off with some glitter (of course ;) ) and an antique wash. Ahh love, makes the world a much better place don’t you think?

The outpouring of love shown to me over the weekend really touched my heart, it’s wonderful to know so many people care. Sometimes we think that ‘we aren’t enough’ or ‘nobody cares’ and it’s hard to dig ourselves out of that pit. I’ve fallen in many times and probably will again and again, but I know that people around me love me and that they are always there to give me a hand up and a lovely warm hug.

Don’t forget, You Are Loved!

These two little gorgeous owls are waiting for a new home, find them on ebay now.

Hope you had a great weekend,

[...] It’s been a while since I painted something for my ‘Sweet Hearts’ series, I think the last one was the owls. [...]
