Short post today. We are having an ice storm here and the weather is abysmal. Posting short so maybe I can get this live before the power clicks out again. Never fear – we have a generator and we are good.
Starting with my Getting Sketchy for last week. I am trying a new sketchbook from Cheap Joe’s. Hahaha! Great name, yes? I thought this sketchbook would be perfect for storing patterns and I decided to start with cute ones.
And the pages are white so I have no idea why these photos look like they do. Hahahahaha! Check out this Remy pattern from Silke Wagner. People are doing so many different things with it. She named it Remy after the little mouse in Ratatouille. I’ve seen it drawn as mice, teddy bears, Santa Clauses, snowmen, penguins, a seal and I am sure there are others.
The color background is Lindy’s Magicals. I love their colors – they are all beautiful so far. I haven’t tried every one but I am working on it. Hahahaha! For this I just tangled up a whole bunch of crescent moon and shaded.
But I felt it was a little plain so I added white gelly roll pen and liked this a bunch more. My instagram friend Phillis said they were staring at her 🙂 hahaha! Yes, they are! Hahahaha!
The weather is supposed to be crazy – pretty much all over North America. Stay safe and be responsible. If you have to drive – take your time, watch out for crazy drivers, and be safe. Maybe throw a couple quilts in the car and make sure you have gloves and a hat and a warm enough coat. We already had to get AAA involved early this morning to pull our son out of a ditch on the side of the interstate – heading home from work and hit a patch of ice. That is all it takes sometimes to ruin your day. Thankfully both Jason and his car were in good shape. Love you guys!
