I finished all the HTML videos on Team Tree House, made three pages, an input form, iframe box, chart, lists, various linkage and made my little inner geek happy. Actually ended up learning some things my husband didn’t know about which was also kind of fun. Posting screenshots because, well, I can’t link to any of my clever bits. This is the finished bit of everything I did today from the index page. I have a link to an alternate page (that hops to a different folder) and then a box (there’s also a link to that in the shot, it’s the “fun page”) with the third page (that isn’t in a folder) and the cool little input thingy I made up.
And the screenshot of the finished form – I wish I had a dev site open so you could click on it, because all the buttons work (though nothing is process-able, it’s all clickable and labeled).
When you make something and you love it and are proud of it and aren’t really sure you want to sell it?
I bought two 7×14 canvases the other day so I could use my acrylics again, and this was the first thing I decided to do.
And also, yesterday, I was interviewed on Home Life Simple and featured on Harvesting a Legacy!
Now that I have Rebecca Black stuck in everyone’s head….I painted the Eleventh Doctor today (Alex has great ideas).
I realized that watercolor isn’t exactly the best for portraits, at least not when I make them watery…but still, I’m pleased. When I get some canvases again, I’ll have to make another and see the differences. I added details to his coat and of course, added the sonic.
After that, I had an idea for an ACEO, which is basically just a mini version of the painting I made yesterday…but with words.
I made this in reference to “The Doctor’s wife” (Season 6 Episode 4). Which we watched last night on the Apple TV and was just awesome.
In between the paintings I went to check out the farmers market, and then Alex eventually went to Starbucks to work so I could work out. Since Alex usually works in the living room…which is where I need space, it usually works out for him to get a change of scenery and it seems to help him concentrate. Then I can bounce around the living room until I get tired.
I made eggs for lunch today and cleaned out the fridge a little. Tonight I think we’re going to go out and watch a movie. 😀
Recently Alex and I started watching the 2005 Doctor Who – although we started in season 5 (2010) with Matt Smith (!!!!).
We….I’ve become somewhat enamored and geeking out over anything TARDIS or Doctor related. So, today, I decided to take Alex’s suggestion and paint something Who-ish. I wanted to show the TARDIS in an in-between state, so I allowed the paint to drip unevenly and added swirls around it to depict having just left or entered traveling and the TARDIS beginning to establish it’s form. All I can hear in my head is the parking break being left on. 😉
I listed some art cards on etsy today so I can trade, and also, because I thought it would be fun. I’ve also joined a team that started organizing a promotion system that I’m really excited about.
I also spent much of the afternoon cleaning and re-organizing my office. I moved my art stuff back in there and got my easel set up (learning to paint standing up, it is actually helpful). I emptied a box holding junk and organized the junk and put it away so now Tonks has a little box to sit inside that he likes. He actually likes to sit under anything. Then I put up a bunch of my watercolors that I had laying around and the ones that aren’t taped to the wall are in my portfolio.
Alex and I have been enjoying the new grocery store that expanded and reopened. Yesterday we got some fresh buns and made hamburgers for dinner tonight. They were really tasty. We’re also addicted to Izze (sparkling juice they sell at starbucks) turns out it’s actually healthy for you.
