a new painting

I love messing around with photoshop and my self portraits....
I find it easier to paint myself for some reason, maybe because I'm not trying to get it exactly right, as when I'm painting someone else I tend to want to get it as realistic as possible....and I find that tough!
So.....
here's the photo I took....


and the beginning of the painting I did today~

Brooches


I just wanted to show off my girls brooches.
They made them by laminating their drawings and gluing a brooch pin on the back.

My girls are only 9 and 10, and are very creative!

A Holiday in Findhorn

Me and the kids decided to go off for a few days to stay in a gorgeous cottage by the sea.
CORTACHY APARTMENT
is in the village of Findhorn, on the Moray coast.
It was amazingly cozy and just a few steps from the beach.



I love the sea and the sound of the water on the pebbles.
The pebbles at Findhorn are so smooth!



We visited the Findhorn Foundation while we were there.
A place I love to walk around and look upon the eco houses and sweet little gardens.








My lovely Sister lives and works in Findhorn at the Shambala Retreat Centre.
It's a beautiful house on the beach.

We did lots of walking in the sea air, pebble collecting, beach combing, charity shop rummaging, leaf throwing, forest venturing, cottage gazing, seagull avoiding, and more!
