About Me

My name is Marion and I live in Glen Waverley which is a suburb of Melbourne, the capital city in the state of Victoria in Australia. I have lived in Victoria, Australia all of my life except when I lived in Stockholm, Sweden for 5 months in 1989. I love anything Swedish and we took the family back to visit in 2010 for 6 weeks in Winter, it was amazing and wonderful and I totally feel at home in Scandinavia.
Australia has a population of nearly 24,000,000
I am married to John and we have been married 33 years. We have 2 children, Alicen who is 28 and David who is 24. Alicen lives with her partner, Josh, in Launceston, Tasmania another state of Australia. David is still living at home with John and I.
We have 2 dogs, Chocky a poodle cross who is about 6 and Tia a maltese cross who is about 4. Chocky and Tia are rescue dogs we adopted.
My elderly parents live in their own unit attached to our home.
I love art and creating. I studied a Diploma in Studio, Stitch and Textiles through 2000 - 2002. I am now a Holistic Art Therapist, I got my Diploma in 2007-2008 and work casually in this field.
I love 'arty farty' stuff and I have set up one of the bedrooms in my home as my studio, just for me.
I particularly love textiles and creating using felt and embroidery threads and freehand stitching and I also love collage work with paper and painting mandalas using acrylic paints.
Fave crafts, I love anything I can do with my hands and I have just begun learning mosaics 2016.
My favourite colour is blue.
I love.............
Decaffeinated weak black tea and my favourite brand is Tetley
I love fridge magnets.
I love my dogs who are integral members of my family.
I love walking my dogs around my neighbourhood and looking at the houses and the gardens.
I love colour.
I love my home and my family.
I love friendships.
I love giving and receiving.
I love art and craft and have tried many and varied ones during my lifetime to date and I will continue to learn and try new ones.
I love cooler weather.
I enjoy writing letters.
I love teddy bears and I still have mine that was given to me at the age of 1 year old. I used to make them but then moved onto another craft.
I love creating mandala's.
I love travelling and would like to visit Canada, Russia and go back to Scandinavia.
I love IKEA.
I love gardening and I am enjoying succulents.
So that is me and I hope you enjoyed reading all about me because I enjoyed sharing with you.

Out of Action.........................

Wow, I am just catching up on all the wonderful postings for swaps.  I have not been online for a fortnight as I visited my daughter in Launceston, Tasmania and unfortunately I left home with asthma and a cold virus, which went to severe bronchitis, while in Tassie.  I am home again and finally beginning to feel 85% well again, it was horrid.  I hope everyone else is fit and well out there in TAC and…

Life

Well life, the reality of life, has taken over my artistic freedom and of late I have none.  It has been hectic.  I have been facilitating a number of art therapy workshops (which is great) and the preparation has involved all of my free time.  But...these workshops are easing with Christmas on the horizon and the summer holidays here in Aus when life begins a slower pace while universities and school are closed.  Roads become quieter and as the weather heats up people stop inside with…

Hi Marion, Loved looking through all your mandalas. I wish I could attend your mandala class. Have you ever thought about doing a tutorial? I always love creating mandalas and am eager to learn all the many different approaches. Love all your ATCs as well and I think your postcard swap is a brilliant idea. I think we are all ready to go bigger !! Thanks for hosting these swaps and bringing the swap group back to life !! XX

Hi Marion, good idea.  There were three Lindas and I didn't know where she lived or which one to send a friend request to.  You are doing marvellously with these swaps Marion, love them, THANK YOU.  Best Wishes, Dabau.

My mother and I are confuse on the art swap and the one color art work. Is this the same? Mom received a card from you and 1 other person. She is getting her stuff together to send back reply's to both of yall. Is that what is suppose to be done. Is the work from the one color art or is it ant art. Why do we need 4 returns who gets the other 2? What is ATC"s? Confused need help lol.

Gosh! Well I feel stupid! That's weird ! I'm sorry to have bothered you and Linda with this trivial matter.

I hope they come up with a cure for forgetfulness sooner than later.
