I'm going to have a go at the same.
So, this week. I did some pastel painting. 'Tree of Cyclones' is still not finished, but is slowly getting there as the children allow. I've set up a space for it in my studio (also decided to call my art corner a studio, because really, that is what it is) on the easel and it is working well so far, though I'd prefer it outside on a sunny day.
I've started my first painting for The Creative Color Challenge over on Louise Gale's Dream, Inspire, Create. The colour chosen is certainly an challenging one and not one you usually see by itself. The results will be interesting. The topic I've chosen is a little bizarre and I'm not sure I can pull it off to any degree of success, but then this is supposed to stretch our boundaries.
I've designated Sundays and Tuesdays as art days. Sunday because Hubby is home to help with the children (he can have Saturdays), and Tuesday because my eldest goes to playgroup with Grandma and it's just me and Izzy and sometimes she will sit and allow me to work as long as she can see me.
Oh, I forgot, I definitely achieved something in crochet this week. I completed a scarf I was making and started another. The results can be seen over at Ravelry, but as one or the other is for a gift, I'll have to leave piccies here until after they have been given.
So in the meantime here are a couple of piccies celebrating the Creative Colour challenge this week.

I think the bug is the Giant Jewel Beetle, Julodimorpha bakewelli. And 'giant' is the key word. It was a good ten to twelve centimetres long. North of Cervantes, Western Australia.
In summary, juggling the house, the kids and my creative works is hard, particularly this week with Izzy having undergone immunization and has been feeling poorly for the last few days. But I'm getting there. I'll just spit a few chips along the way.
Oh, I nearly forgot to mention! I won a beautiful mosaic piece over at Glittering Shards! I'm tickled pink and a little stunned. What an introduction to the creative community. Check out Concetta's mosaics, she has some lovely stuff over there.
Here's hoping I can squeeze in enough time to complete the challenge this week, because I reeeeeally want to.
See you on the otherside :D
