Fortunately however, I had a brilliant thought come to mind the other morning while I was out in the fourteen degree weather riding my bike for cross training. A small few of you may remember the idea journal pages I was doing last year that all fell by the wayside along with the rest of my sanity as we waited and waited and waited to finally move...I wanted to pick that back up again but differently as I thought maybe it was a bit distracting. Plus I seemed to track more writing projects on there rather than art projects and this year I fully intend to focus more time on my art. So I reconfigured the page to list current projects, pieces that need finished pretty much yesterday (miss deadlines much?), and then broke down monthly, weekly, and daily prompts and exercises, along with a few 'off in the future dealio endeavors' that I plan to work my way towards as I (actually!) finish the current projects at hand (aka: motivation to finally see something through to the end! Maybe if I track them all this way I just might be able to finish some??) And, of course, I had to make it all pretty and colorful and even left room for checking off actual accomplishments every day, plus space for doodling and scribbling in more notes and ideas to carry on to the next week...brilliant? I'm quite happy with it:
Another little bit I did yesterday, an exercise from One Zentangle a Day (I so love this book!!)-tangling on colored paper and experimenting with shading and highlighting. I picked up a little pack of primary colored index card sized cardstock (to also use for Index Card a Day projects later on...just heaping more and more on my plate...and why do I have trouble with deadlines??) I only managed the one as I had a houseful of boys after school that Bug invited to stay for dinner-he's ever the gracious host...so more play today!
Finally, this is just a tangle of the day, also from One Zentangle a Day, using Jetties, Sampson, and 'Nzeppel:
Today, today, today...I am refusing to go anywhere today (jammie day??!) Jammies are HUGE up here...folks wear jammies like regular clothes-I'm serious! No matter where you go, I guarantee you will see multiple people out and about in jammies. Hey, I'm all for super comfort--why not?! My kinda place--except Bug has vehemently informed me that I am NOT allowed to wear my jammies in public because that would just completely embarrass him. Mannnn!!! Sometimes that kid can take all the fun out of a day...But, I really do need to do a little bit of cleaning at least, then play time...it is the weekend after all! Thanks for taking a peek!
Today, may you go in the grace and peace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
May the grace He has given you be the grace that you share with others.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing.” Galatians 2:20-21, NIV
