People Have Asked

A handful of people have asked what I have been creating lately.
I'm knitting a new purse.

Knitting is good therapy for me. 
I have to slow down. 
I have to accept process. 
There is NO instant gratification in knitting.  
One stitch at a time is the only way I will get to the end.

Art Journaling

For many years, I have been intrigued by art journaling. It's fun. It's therapy. And there is no wrong way.
For many years, I have been intrigued by art journaling.  And it always made me angry. What are the cool pens, the right pens, the pens you can't afford...the wrong paper, the crappy paper, this technique...that technique! No. I'd throw my soul into an internal arms-crossed-eyes-closed-head-turned to-the-side pout. "Humph! No. I WON'T play!"

Friday, a coworker was kind enough to show me her latest art journaling book.
I was inspired!
"Hey, I wanna play, too!"

I did! I played.

THANK YOU, She-Who-Likes-To-Remain-Under-The-Radar.

A Cold In August

Stayed home from work, napped...twice, drank tons of water, watched a movie. At the closing of the day, sometimes you just have to COLOR!

Late Night

Drawn late at night while talking to my daughter on the phone.  Happy.
