It's been one of those days where I feel immensely creative and the need to be busy. I want to draw! I want to write! I want to clean the entire house! I want to want to make a dollhouse out of a cardboard box! (Actually that's a good idea. Remind me to do a tutorial on one of those next month.) I want to make little fairy dolls for the cardboard doll house! I want to bake cookies! I want to get a care package together for someone I miss very much! I want to make little clay things! And I......... I....... I can't.
I have very pressing obligations which must get done before I can do anything recreational. (I am taking a break from those very pressing obligations at this very moment. Shame on me.)
But I still feel the urge to create.
Rainy days tend to bring that out in me.
It's the first rainy day of the summer.
I don't know about you, but where I live our pollen season starts later than everywhere else. It lasts longer too, because we never get rain. We get a lot of snow (a lot of snow), but it hardly ever rains. And you need rain to make pollen go away.
Let's just say I think our pollen season is finally over. :)
And now, Cait, over at Notebook Sisters very kindly gave me permission to copy this from her blog.
Thank you! :)
I finished the picture last night, and I'm rather happy/unhappy with the finished product.
It didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but I really like it by itself.
Now, before you say, "That doesn't look anything like her/me!" please note that I was really just trying to get the pose she was in.
Also, as a side note, glasses are really, really hard to draw! I must work on that, they are super difficult to get right.
But thanks again to Cait. It was very nice of her to let me use her picture as a model.
SQUEEEEEE! I have fifteen followers! Thank you all for joining, it gives me such a thrill when I see a new person. I'm considering a giveaway for if and when I make it to twenty... but I have no idea what I would, you know, give away. So..... suggestions?
And now I go back to my pressing obligations....
Who knows? Maybe my creative juices will continue to flow until I can start utilizing them.
