Yes I know.
No, I don't really have an excuse. I mean, I have WiFi now, which is jolly. I have enough time, which is also jolly.
At the moment, I'm just a little bit brain dead when it comes to blogging ideas.
I need to start writing ideas down and putting them in a little clear mason jar, so that when I'm stumped I can stick my hand in and pull out a pre-thought-up post idea. Bountiful!
LET'S DO A LIST!!
A LIST OF HAPPY THINGS!
1.) I wore a cute sailor-y outfit today. I felt quite fabulous. (we won't mention how I may have splooshed wine on it, because that's not a happy thing.)
2.) My sister and her husband and their youngest came out for a weekend visit last week! (Hence no Picture Saturday.) We did lots of stuff and things, and it was really epic.
|Yes, I make funny faces at babies. WHO DOESN'T?|
3.) I figured out how to make the scanner scan stuff on high quality so my pictures aren't grainy. THIS MEANS I will not be using the camera anymore, and my drawings will look much more better on here. This delights me.
4.) I bought copic markers. *Flails*
Right, so happy thoughts done! (What a freaking relief.... can we get back to the sarcasm now? Thank you.)
Picture Saturday has... very little color. See I have my colored pencils on a shelf. And if I want to use them, I have to get up and get them and that's so much work. I will color more next week. And I will draw Luna the MLP next week as well.
1.) So first we have the bizarre doodles. Yes, I draw people kissing. What can I say? I'm in love with the idea of love.
2.) More bizarre doodles. But I finally drew a smiley person that I like!*
3.) HUG, because HUG.
4.) Le fairy, because fairies are always awesome, and I really like them.
5.) I had a really bad week, and this was the Postcommunion at Mass, and it just sort of made my day. And yes, I totally botched writing which Psalm it was, because I got ahead of myself and tried to write the wrong letter first. In pen. Go me.
6.) My co-worker's birthday was last week, and a couple weeks ago, I found out that she really liked this song called Bus Stop by the Hollies. And since the lyrics were so freaking cute, I figured for her birthday I would draw her a picture illustrating it.
This was the rough draft.
7.) And this was the final version. I was very proud. AND she really liked it, so BONUS!
8.) The semi-self portrait that I did. Semi, because A.) I don't actually look like that. B.) My hair is not that fabulous. And C.) I'm a leftie.
9.) The really terrible dual.
10.) Jack posted the other day about how she looks when she rides her motorcycle, and her description was so cute... I had to draw it.
11.) Le scowly girl who did an admirable job depicting my feelings at the moment of her creation.
12.) Le mommy and her daughter, which was inspired by my sister and her kid. I shall probably color it in eventually.
13.) So I was listening to Taylor Swift....
14.) And that led me to my country music mood. And I just happened to listen to Play It Again by Luke Bryan, and that song is fabulous. (So yous all who don't like country *coughHannahcoughJesscough* can go somewhere else, because this is CUTE.)
15.) I bought Copic Markers.....
WELL THAT WAS A MISTAKE. Because see... as soon as I try new art supplies, I can't live without them. COPIC MARKERS ARE SEVEN BUCKS A POP, PEOPLE. Why!? So I only bought two. Yeah, I know what I'm saving up for....
GUYS IT'S ACTUALLY SKIN TONED. IT'S SKIN TONED! NOT PEACH! SKIIIIN.
Yep. My hobby is very expensive and it's sad. OH WELL! *Dances off to work for markers*
Goodbai. I shall see you in a few days.
