My family has been ill. Pink eye, ear infections and colds, a bit of a bad reaction to food. I think everyone is fine now. Thankfully. I just feel so sad when the little ones are so sick. They bounce back pretty well though.
I have been reading my old copy of Sarks Make Your Creative Dreams Real: A Plan for Procrastinators, Perfectionists, Busy People, and People Who Would Really Rather Sleep All Day. I have discovered I am a perfectionist with my art. The description fits me perfectly. Ughh..
I have a birthday coming and I am going to treat myself to these two books. I love books!! Taking Flight by KellyRae Roberts and Living the Creative Life by Rice Freeman-Zachary. I am very excited to get these two books. I have checked them out in the store and they are great! I also bought a watercolor block and a new palette. So there will be lots of cake ( I am not worrying about calories) and no cooking for me. I will let you all know how the day goes.
Also, along the lines of the previous post... there is summersville sketch, a new blog that artist and designer Lu Summers, of Summersville started. She is trying to stretch herself by making a small piece of mixed media art every day for a year. She has done some nice work so far.
And I know having a word for the year is so popular. I don't have one. Not yet, and maybe not at all. I do love this idea. What is your word?
