A tishoooo. . . atishoo. . . we all fall down!

Grrr... two weeks back at school and I have one almighty cold. The works, runny nose, feeling hot and cold and so darn tired.... a tishooo, atishoo non stop.... thankfully today Wednesday is a no school day... so I've flopped about all day. I've done a bit of drawing and painting mainly for my on-line course that I'm doing....
This is the page that I did for last weeks mixed media homework... I couldn't resist a little story.. Missy mermaid is wondering if her bum looks big... "No Silly" says the little fairy "I've bought you a dandelion flower to cheer you up.... you have to blow on it and make a wish"...
Will upload this weeks homework later on in the week....

I re painted the spare room and turned it into my art room... my gorgeous daughter Rebecca said that I should give my room a name... her boyfriends Mum has a creative room that she calls her "Pod" which sounds cosy and cool. I couldn't very well pinch her name "Pod" so I've been wracking my poor sick befuddled brain for a name for "My Room", work station isn't right, coz it's not work, studio didn't sound right either - far to grown up ... then it came to me...
"The Dolls House" 
because it's where magic and make believe come together, where I chat and have fun with my friends. All creative souls out there know that the drawings and dolls that we make talk and have wonderful stories to tell and share... The Dolls House where I go to leave the real world behind......for awhile at least.

Rebecca and Emily Jane...
check out my wonderful daughters' video that she and her friend made for Freshers Week....

AW those germie little buggers!. I was a substitute teacher for awhile. The little ones in elementary school just can't keep their germs to themselves. Some one is always trying to hug you or hold your hand. :) Get well soon xoxo Terah. Your girl is good on TV!

Her bum is not big - she's voluptuous! Nice work getting your own art room/Dolls House! Look forward to seeing what you create in it.
