Introducing my Zodiacs, each one different, I tried to include on each doll something that represented that particular star sign-
Each one has a small plaque on their body showing the sign, dates and 2 characteristics of that sign, what do you think?
I just listed all of them on my Ebay page at- http://shop.ebay.com.au/merchant/michellesbambole_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZQQ_mdoZ

So I will show you a few pics of my garden, that is now in bloom, it is a smallish garden but it brings the family together for BBQ's and get togethers quite often, very peaceful and relaxing, especially when the fountain is running.
Now that my roses are blooming I can have fresh flowers in the house, makes me feel happy.

I found a little time to do some painting, just for something different, as you can see painting is not my strong point, I called it 'By The Light......'
I have made some Maubles, they are so quick and easy, I make hundreds for my kids, they give them to their teachers, work colleagues and friends.
I'm getting ready for Christmas with a new pattern and a new workshop, I'm working on.

My new web site is finally up, after much trial and error using programs such as Dreamweaver (which was way too complicated for little ol' me). I found a program called Web Plus 10, I was finally able to design my site, there are a few minor alterations I want to make when I get the chance, please have a peek, link is on the left, thanks.
I want to share with you a blog by Marjorie a member of my KING PURR SHA workshop.
This blog was started when she began working on King and shows her 'adventure' so far.
Marjorie states 'Here I chart my journey as I discover how to make the King Purrsha with Michelle Munzone'
I have placed the link to Marjorie's adventure on the left in 'Links' column, click if you would like to share her journey.

I have had no free time at all lately, so I have not posted for a while. I do want to tell you about a day celebrated here in Australia last Wednesday, actually I did not know much about it until my art teacher found out about from her school teacher daughter.
Harmony Day is a day where all cultures come together as Australia has many nationalities calling her their home. Every single person in Australia except the indigenous Aborigines, came from somewhere else in the world. To celebrate Harmony Day our art class made a collage/painting to show where our members originated from, Sue our teacher came from Britain, myself and my cousin Sandra were born here but originated from Sicily an island of Italy, some of our other members came from South Africa, Macedonia, Malta, Aborigine and an island of Croatia, love to be part of this group.
We attended a presentation at our local Library with guest speakers and members from other community groups, it was a great day.
Our painting and others are on dispaly at Liverpool Library for the next 2 weeks.

Frog lovers, just want to share this cute little fellow that was sitting in my backyard garden last night. We often have little visitors, they must enjoy the water in the fountain. We also have many lizards in our garden, the usual 'tommy' lizards, but recently we had a visit from a blue tongue lizard, my cat was very curious but we kept him away.
Want to let you know my Beaded Pin Dolls are now a web class, due to start Jan 7. Time to relax after the hectic holiday season! De-stress and give this enjoyable workshop a go!
This fun class contains many colour photos and detailed instructions, guiding you through each step of the way, showing how to make unlimited variations of these gorgeous, beaded dolls just by using 3 basic patterns and many embellishing techniques.
These cuties are pin dolls but can be made into key rings or hanging ornaments, they can even be used as Christmas ornaments by using festive fabrics.
