River Flow

Big things are happening in this river girls life right now.
 I have bought a house in town, with my girlfriend Kathy, and the boys and I have moved in. The new house is fabulous and still on my beloved river and offers so many opportunities to us all.  Moving was epic and overwhelming and we are almost finished bringing our things to the new house now we just need to sort everything out and settle in. 

The animals have all been moved and have settled in well, the parrots were the easiest and the poodle, Indi is very mobile and adaptable. The 2 cats Minx and Domino have settled in mostly but they still dont like each other and they dont like going from bush cats free to roam out at our old place to town cats confined to the house. They will soon be getting a catio built for them to have access out into an enclosed area out the back. The chooks have also made the move and they didn't miss a beat and kept on laying eggs right through.

The really exciting thing about moving into town
 and buying this house in particular is I am opening an art studio downstairs where I will be running lots of different classes and workshops. There is still a lot of work to do before the studio opens but we are here and taking it one step at a time. I am studying a certificate 4 in small business starting next week and starting the renovations downstairs as soon as I can. 

The bad thing about all of this is I have been so busy I have not been able to get any art done really and most of my art materials are packed away. So I am not very active at all over in our fabulous Australian Art Swap Group on facebook  and I have opted out of the next round of the Australian Art Journal Swap but if you pop over to the blog you will see the beautiful journals developing.
