Giving this blog some much needed love.

Standard

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…

Finally, I finished a drawing.

Standard

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.

Finally updated my website!

Standard

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.
