What a week! Getting back into the swing of things after the Holidays was just not that easy this year. Back to work, Back to “normal” just isn’t what it used to be. I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy to see a Friday arrive – I hope next week is a little better, but I suspect it’s going to be just as hectic and crazy!
With all the crazy, stressfulness of the week, I was making a point of tangling each day – such a great stress reliever and it doesn’t take a lot of time – a few minutes here and there add up and pretty soon, you have a finished piece.
Patterns – Featherfall, Indy-Rella and my Cirque with a twist to it – Cirque-Flake.
This was done in my little 5.5 x 5.5 inch Global Arts Handbook, Sketchbook of Strings that I talk about in one of my video. I love that little book and recently ordered a rectangular version to start working in. Global Arts Handbook are wonderful quality sketchbooks, I highly recommend them. Quality paper, very well made and they will lay flat, which makes it easier for me to work in them. This little 5.5×5.5 is easy to tuck into my bag, so I take it everywhere with me. I used my new Derwent Graphik Line Maker pens which are just amazing. I love these pens and they are wonderful to work with – they come in a set of 6, different size nibs and are so smooth going on the paper. They nibs seem a bit sturdier than the Sakura Microns, though I still love my Microns. The also come in a pretty carrying case, so you can easily tuck them into your back and have a nice set of pens to take with.
I’m approaching a milestone on my Youtube channel – so close to 100 subscribers! I’m at 98 right now….so, so close! I appreciate the support and all those who’ve taken the time to watch my videos and leave me comments – you’re all so kind and encouraging! This weekend I’ll be making a few more videos and I hope you’ll check in – even better, subscribe and you’ll get notice when new videos come out.
This weekend there is nothing I HAVE to do…well, except the food shopping – you need food. But nothing else. Over the Christmas Break I received three DVD’s from Tiffany Lovering – I was a winner in her giveaway! This weekend I think I’ll finally get to watch them and play around with what I’m sure I’ll be learning.
What are you doing this weekend?
