All Change

Well, it's all change in the Smith household. I was made redundant on Saturday and I have decided to be a full time mum and concentrate on my painting and knitting. I was offered a couple of days work with a pay cut but I just decided I would take this as an opportunity to do something that I've always wanted to do. If we start to struggle or I go a bit mental from being at home all the time then I'll start looking for some part time work, but we'll give it a good go. My first week has gone pretty wall and have made a good start on both my painting commissions and the dirty washing mountain! My lovely husband said that he would introduce me to the washing machine (cheeky git!).

So here are my paintings so far (both not finished...especially the top one. A work in progress so watch this space)......


and here is my groovy 80's chick who again dressed herself! Absolutely gorgeous :O)

Good luck in all your ventures and tell that "cheeky git" when the rubber gloves are!
Your new paintings are great, I love the colours and textures in the top one :)
