Obsessions

Didn’t get around to blogging yesterday (obviously) because I was way. too. tired. Weather changes do weird things and rain makes me sleepy. I might have allergies, but Claritin seems to give me headaches (or maybe it’s all in my head?). Anyway, I’m mixing “authentic thursday” in with today’s “media friday” […]

Artsy

Almost every night for the last couple weeks I’ve been working on the new illustrations for my book. This time around (almost exactly a year later) I’m doing it completely differently. Last year, I sat down in my studio, with pencils and paint, and sketched and painted immediately. I didn’t really […]

Brain Dead Monday

It’s Monday again! yay. We had an exciting weekend, and I’m really tired. Putting words into the box is becoming a somewhat difficult task on the day I made up to be the easiest. 😛 See? easy right? words just aren’t coming to me today. I haven’t completely woken up yet, […]

Follow Friday

I *never* do this on twitter or anything, and I’m not sure if I’ll actually do this every week, but I thought I’d try it.

Inspirational Wednesday

Earlier this year I signed up for an email list called The Brave Girls Club. Everyday they send me an email with a letter. I don’t read all of them, but sometimes (a lot of times) they write something that I *really* needed to hear and know about myself and it […]

Artistic Tuesday

Last night I went to an artist panel hosted by the local creative arts association that I just joined. The topic was basically how we write ant talk about art, and how we *should* be and what ways are helpful to engage the public. We had a journalist, historian, and a […]

Made Up Monday

There’s sun today! Well, there was and I was excited about it. The other day I looked up a story I started working on when I was 11. I got three “chapters” in and never really finished. The inspiration and muse just sort of went away for it. I was re-reading […]
