Spin bike in my PJ's…

because why can’t I do exercise in my pajama’s at home.. in self isolation.. locked away from the world with this dreaded virus everywhere we turn?! It’s not like anyone’s coming to the door! Don’t want to over-do it though… I think a good ten minutes for today is a good start lol I totally stood up for most of it though.. so doesn’t that count as double the calories?? 😉

Spin bike in my PJ’S!!!!

So what else did my exciting day at home yesterday involve? Cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. My bathroom is spotless, the washing’s all done and little Miss and I started sorting through her room. Got her 2 bottom draws sorted… she’s wearing size 5 clothes now and I totally found size 3’s left in there hahaha… so it was definitely a job I’ve been putting off for quite sometime!

The second half of the day was spent doing some much needed ART! We had lots of fun creating some Halloween themed black coasters lol… not my idea.. but they actually turned out pretty cool! Will add some sparkles and give them a coat of varnish tonight.

Halloween coasters with Missy Moo.

Woke up to the changes in rules currently taking place in NSW, Australia. The PM is doing his best to emphasis the importance of ‘social distancing’… and fair enough too! Definitely don’t want to be going down the same path as Italy… those poor buggers!

Our day today is looking quite chill. Getting the animals out for a run is my priority as well as reading a few books with my mini me! Also put on a chicken broth this morning. Read that drinking warm liquids every half hour keeps the bugs away! No better drink to be had than an organic chicken broth full of veggies!!!! YUM!

Until next time.. stay safe peeps!

Self Isolation begin #stayathome #coronavirus

March 23rd was the official start of our lockdown here in NSW, Australia. Shops closed at midday. Cafe’s and restaurants are only allowed to do deliveries. Cinemas and casino’s all closed. Thousands of people lost their jobs. We are indeed living in a crazy time!

My morning was spent finishing up a guidebook on Shrinkie Dinks and uploading a new YouTube video. Then my daughter and I managed to get out the old Wii and set it up. Can’t believe it still works!!!

This whole self isolation thing is going to take some getting use to. I’m an introvert, and a home body.. so staying home for me is EASY. My 4 year old isn’t quite the same. Ayla hates being at home for longer than a couple hours. So I’m going to have to think of new and fun things to do with her. I don’t want her sitting on technology for a large chunk of the day. Going to think up some sort of schedule that includes exercise, education, cooking, games and fun with our animals.

Any advice and tips from school teachers welcome! Comment below.

Looks like I’ll be writing blog posts more often now…… will definitely have the time for it! lol. My days will now he starting at 5am so I can connect with all you beautiful people for a couple hours before bub wakes up… xxx

Until next time my beautiful peeps… stay home and keep safe xox

Otauna Pattern Designs no more :-(

Started writing this post some time ago and just haven’t found the right words to finish it.

To say I’m dissapointed is an understatement but, as always, I do my best to remain positive.

Otauna, the Dot Mandala company I work for as a Pattern Designer, has closed down all future pattern sales. When the CEO, Ginger, informed me it was hard to take. I felt my ego’s voice say, “BUT WHY???? After all the hardwork and effort we put in??!!!” It just didn’t make sense to me… This WAS going to be one of my passive income streams that would continue to grow and that I would build on every month indefinitely.

After giving it some thought, I reminded myself that everything happens for a reason and that Ginger (aswell as Otauna) is on her own personal journey. I can not question or doubt what she is going through, and I am infact honored that she even asked me to become part of Otauna’s mission, even if it was only for a year.

So, I find myself in this very familiar, and some what uncomfortable place again…. trying to figure out how I can create other ways of passive income! While I’m brainstorming ideas in the back of my mind I’ve managed to create 3 Ebooks. The first of many…

Let me know what you think! 🙂

Hey beautiful people!

So this morning I woke to 2 new custom orders and a sick 4 year old! It seems like the universe is indeed giving me more work, but also not giving me the chance to get it done!!!

My dot mandala art is skyrocketing at the moment and I’m loving every minute. You know when you’re so engrossed in something you love (tv show, book etc) that you even dream about it at night time?!!! Well that’s where I’m at with my resin art! Last night I had multiple dreams about colour combinations and different shape coasters! I love being in my ‘zone of genius’ so much! 😀

This week i have 3 custom orders to get done and a guide book to answer all my amazing followers questions. Fingers crossed I manage to get it all done!

See ya soon!
