Thank you...

this is a scheduled half scheduled, half bodgied post as I am off at the beach
no doubt sunburnt slightly
drunk on afternoon naps and the smell of salt water

But I wanted to try to keep up with the whole youtube thing so I filmed while I was painting this bottle up, and I even remembered to film all parts of it. so it is done from start to finish with no gaps... getting the hang of it all now. 

I have to say I aml obsessed with this hand soap... It smells so insanely awesome and is just about the best thing I have come across recently. Lime and coriander are two of my favourite smells in the whole world, plus no nasties, awesome company, and fab packaging... And the smell... Did I mention the smell...Dear god it is amazing...
Of course their hand sanitiser is also a new obsession as it smells like a gin and bitter lemon which is my all time favourite drink, so the company is obviously very tuned into my smell loves
So I decided to combine the inspiration of the divine smell and packaging with my desire to actually get better at the filming thing so here we have it...

This improvement with the filming process was helped no doubt by the fact that this one was painted without Barry the cat on my lap
Mushu the wonder mutt liked sitting on the table, slowly inching across closer and closer until his snout edged onto the palette so he could steal my tea when I got engrossed in what I was doing, But Barry is a whole other thing. Barry has to be right on top of you.
He has to be in everything, watching and swatting the brush at odd moments. It is taking quite a bit of getting used to as Mushu didn't notice much, or if he did he couldn't be arsed getting excited about much other than chicken, or you coming home. He would always act as though you had been gone for years rather than minutes. In fact hanging the clothes on the line and coming back in the house was met with rapturous welcomes from Mushu. Barry however wants to help hang out the washing, then supervise all else you do for a time after, and it isn't until he is sure there is nothing interesting happening that he decides to nap. 
So pet tales aside here is the demo if you are interested...
I have no clue how to get the embed code via the iPad so a link will have to do you
happy painting all...xx

Ooh... can't wait to see the new video! But I will miss the surprise guest star in the form of 'Bazza' in the middle of it! IMO he should feature in all of them, lol! I'm not a cat lover, but he seems to have a personality all of his own, just like Mushu! Loving the bottle! Off to watch the video :0)
