Well after all the work of painting walls, bogging holes and all that goes with renovating a 200 year old hall, the time has finally come to open. I am opening on Sunday.

Hi all, I am so Sorry I have not been in touch for so long. Things are going totally mad. This is the best thing I ever did. Here in Langhorne Creek we have one deli, a pub, a post office, 2 churches, a primary school and lots of wineries. We are on the B road in South Australia and I am on the main road so get all the through traffic. Who would have thought that little old me would be driving tourists to the town. People are hearing about my unique pyrowax and are coming to look for themselves. I give the local children one of my A5 sized paintings I do with the iron which had resulted in the school principle coming to see me and I am getting all the classes through for a demonstration in wax painting. I am open Wed - Sun 10.30 am till 3.30pm. My next step is to revamp my webpage and get all my new business cards and fliers done.So you see why I have not spent time here with you. I will post you some pics tonight I have yo go open up now.

 :thankyou: Dennis and Mea. Today was another busy day.  It is the cards that is making my money for me at the moment. I had 14 people through today. One was a school teacher of a school in another town. i said that I accept school excursions for a fee and all the kids get a card with a wax painting painted with an iron. Looks like I will have a much larger school coming through. I love encouraging kids to do art. A month ago I was an unknown in this town. Now I have kids running up to me and their parents thanking me. When I walk my dog, people are waving and beeping their horns. This town is full of millionares so it is only a matter of time before my big paintings sell. In the mean time I am living off my cards.
