Yesterday started with breakfast, then routine email, Instagram, website, Facebook and Tangle All Around, and then I took some time for myself. That doesn’t usually happen. But I needed some time to make art for me. Or for swaps, actually. Hahahaha! I have a few swaps in Creative Crafty Friends I signed up for and one thing led to another.
I started with this little girl. I have a ton of stamps but lately I have had trouble coloring them. I can’t get the black ink to heat set. Then I remembered I used to have a good many digital stamps. I searched and searched through stacks of DVDs until I found them and put them on my computer. I think this little mermaid will look amazing in my Zen-untangled book somewhere. I am thinking about week 4 – there is a spot open that she will look incredible on. Hahahaha!
Then I moved on to this one. I totally forgot about the swaps. I love this girl! I printed her at 6 inches tall so she will fit on a page in my Zen-untangled book and fill the space from top to bottom. I now have all my Copics on my desktop and am trying not to mess her up.
This is as far as I got yesterday. I hope to finish her today. I really enjoy doing this kind of thing when I need down time. And I am thankful for this project we are doing in Tangle All Around that allows me to incorporate other types of art with my tangling. And I did print out some stamps for the swaps. I hope to show you those soon. Once I complete them.
Mark and I drove over close to Jason and Bobbie’s for dinner last night. It was Tuesday. Free cake day at Brookside Inn. They love their customers. And they had lobster bisque! Best day ever! By the way – that’s snow, a whole lot of sky and the moon.
They were already at Brookside when we arrived and the Frankles had a gift bag ready for me – happy belated Christmas! is what she told me. And check this gift out! Are you watching The Madelorian on Disney Plus? If you are not – why not???? You need to watch it because . . . Baby Yoda!!!! Bobbie found a lady who made this with a 3D printer. Isn’t he adorable? And did I mention . . . best day ever??? And yeah, there should probably be a frog in that bowl.
I can not believe I didn’t take a picture of my lobster bisque. It tastes just like the bisque I used to get in Cedar Key in Florida. So yummy! The Frankles had a hamburger and she wanted to try the curly fries. And wouldn’t you know she found one shaped like the vowel e. She was like take a picture! And then she was like put it on facebook! Hahahahaha! And I did.
She declared this to be the vowel a. I guess they are working on vowels at school.
And the vowel o. And then it was free cake time! Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing and all five of us got a piece for free. I love Brookside Inn! Just saying. You can’t beat free cake day when you need a break. And family around you. And Baby Yoda. Best day ever!
