I’ve been very lazy about writing in this blog. Several times over the past few weeks I’ve thought about WordPress, but then went to Facebook or Tumblr instead. I just didn’t feel inspired to write anything. It felt like it would be a chore.
Fortunately, crafting isn’t a chore to me! I’ve been working on a crocodile stitch messenger bag, from a pattern I found on Ravelry. I mostly started working on it because I can’t stand the fact that my current purse cannot be slung over my chest. I almost feel naked that I cannot do this.
Here is the progress…
Also, I’ve been been inspired to draw, which feels wonderful. Here is a blurry picture of a sketch that I plan to scan later and turn into a Photoshopped masterpiece…
It’s been so long since I finished a drawing, months and months probably. I had a huge crochet addiction for a while there, but then that tapered off and I started to dream about drawing. So I went ahead and finished this, which I started a few months ago. It took me about the past two weeks of drawing on and off, and I finished it today. Here it is.
The colorfulness is actually made from gluing pieces of crayola crayon wrappings to make a collage. My friend Sofia and I had made muffin pan crayons, and there was so much leftover wrappings, I didn’t want them to go to waste. I still have quite a bit of wrappings left, I wonder what I should use them for next?
I have been getting braxton hicks contractions the past two weeks or so. My uterus will randomly harden for about 10-15 seconds, then become soft again. It’s only mildly uncomfortable. I have also been having a lot of dreams recently in which she is either kicking out of me, or just coming right out of me in one push of labor. I honestly hope she is not an early baby. As much as I want to meet her, my living situation needs to be fixed before she is born! Of course, babies make their own schedule.
After many months, I finally downloaded the drivers to my scanner, then uploaded a good portion of my finished drawings. I put them up on my website, that was art-less until just yesterday.

Also, those “rare” walks alone are now becoming less rare. I found a nice spot nearby to walk, that is mostly filled with trees.
