Mandala MADNESS

Okay so is it just me or is anybody else totally obsessed with Mandalas???

I’ve been creating different forms of manadalas (mostly dot mandalas) for years now and I am STILL obsessed. I just feel like I’ll never get bored of them.

I saw a YouTube video last week by Rachels Rocks Canada (watch it here) and just HAD to give her tutorial a go. Since then, I’ve created 4 stones and 4 coasters with this same pattern lol. This seems to be a cycle of mine. I create something I LOVE and am then obsessed with it for a week or two before I move on to the next thing. The only consistent thing I’ve remained doing over the past few years is dot art! And that’ll never change. I’ll never get sick of my gorgeous dot mandalas! 😁

Anyways… I wanted to quickly share with you my recent creations.. For those of you that are artists I hope you find the blending videos helpful.

I hope to inspire you to give this a try yourself. I’d love to see how they turn out so don’t forget to tag me on social media.

Enjoy! πŸ’œ

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
