I finally got another box unpacked today ha! It’s such a slow and boring process. But it must get done… I cannot stand looking at these blasted brown boxes anymore. Maybe instead of unpacking them, I can sort of decorate them…a bit o’paint, some doodles, some collage maybe… would make them more pleasing to look at anyway.
Okay, I’ll unpack them.
Our little yard so needs a haircut. The weed whacker was out of cord so we bought some several days ago. It needs to be threaded onto the spool. I can’t do that. My hands don’t work that way anymore. So this afternoon, you won’t believe what I did (okay, yes you can). I went outside, scissors in hand, and began cutting. LOL I’m sure I was quite a sight. I got the longest pieces cut around my plants. Progress. My hand quickly cramped or I probably would’ve worked my way around the yard. Snip! Snip!
I’m having a large time on Pinterest. I love that place. It’s a fancy bulletin board where I can pin up all the things I want to remember or re-visit at some point. I’ve been watching some great videos from an artist that I really admire. Exploring other artists really helps me. I start to see how things are done. Next step is being able to do it myself LOL One in particular I’ve really enjoyed browsing… I pinned a few of his drawings on my boards and he followed me! Oh how embarrassing! He’s so on another level. But I guess this is one of the best ways for me to learn and grow.
I am looking forward to my big payday. I’m going to Hobby Lobby… I want to get some more acrylic ink, india ink, and some nibs to work with. Oh, and some better watercolors. I sweat when I go in that store… not a good thing to let me loose in there unsupervised.
A blog friend has been making some great dolls lately. I love looking at her work when she posts. She is so creative and full of talent. She also paints and does all sorts of other artsy stuff.
I guess I should end this here… seems I really don’t have too much to say, just rambling around here.
