Thank you once again for all the kind comments... and as you can see, all it took was a couple of nice days out at the weekend and I'm starting to feel a bit more like my old self... and here I am blogging again. I can't stay away!
Yesterday Laura Kemshall wrote about how she seems to collect empty sketchbooks and she challenged herself to make a drawing a day, starting today on 1st September. She also asked if anyone would like to join in. Well, I have a ridiculous amount of empty sketchbooks... these are a mere fraction. I cannot resist those lovely empty pages and I'm constantly buying new ones, convincing myself this will be the one to make me draw every day. And I'm not even going to tell you how many there are with just one or two pages filled. It's a disgrace!
So I've decided to join in... just a quick 10 - 15 minute sketch each day. And then maybe by the end of the month drawing every day will be such a regular habit, I won't be able to stop
Today I drew my lunch (well - part of my lunch). Nothing wonderful, especially when you see Laura's fabulous drawing today, but I've done it.... and I'll keep you updated with my progress. If I'm sharing on here I might actually do it!
I've also done a little more painting in my Frida Sketchbook
They are meant to be drawings of Mexican tin art, but I'm beginning to think I could have a new career as a tattoo artist!
I've also remembered that over two weeks ago I said I had some buttons to give away. With so much going on at home I had totally forgotten, so today I picked out a name and the buttons will soon be on their way to Marian.
