My Creative Space - Recycling

Things are very busy here this week.

During bub's sleep time today, I got started on a painting that I'm donating for my school's fundraising Race Day, coming up in a couple of weeks. I said I'd do two decorator pieces, as top prizes in one of the draws, which, for me, is better than doing one 'masterpiece' to be auctioned (which is like saying 'take my heart and see if someone can get a bargain' - usually awful).

I'm painting this first one over a painting I did two years ago (that hadn't found it's destiny yet), and it's nice to farewell the old and welcome the new.

By the way, I've just found a description of a terrific way to mark where you want to hang a picture  on a wall - here at 'Tatertots and Jello' - read down past the tutorial on specimen art (which is pretty cool, actually) and there it is. Involving painters tape and a thumbtack. Are you intrigued yet?

For more creative spaces, head over to Kootooyoo.


  1. Ooh! Looks like a successful upcycle. Glad to have found your blog, Anna!

  2. That's a good idea about recycling.

    I could imagine how heartwrenching it'd be to put all that effort into a painting and then see it given away!

  3. Lucky school!! Tell the media an original masterpiece is up for auction at school, might send some big silent bidders in, make the school zillions!! You're so good to donate. I'm my school's fundraising coordinator & donations are like getting blood from a stone, we'd appreciate you, build hype, make money!! Love Posie

  4. what a wonderful donation. i'll have to check out the tatertot tutorial, intrigued :)

    happy weekend!
