About two weeks ago I got two brand spanking new journals to draw in! Happy!
The Fabriano Quadrato Artists Journals are 9×9 inchs in size and are no where to be found in North America. I scoured the internet until I located some in the United Kingdom but sadly the company did not ship outside of Europe. I contacted artist Lorrie Whittington who resides in the UK and together we began a Facebook assault to see if other’s were interested in going in with us to buy them. A big thank you to Lorrie with whom I coordinated the ordering and buying of these skecthbooks with! Continue reading

I drove to Michaels one snowy day not to long ago and perused their isles of dream’s. I really did get lost that evening in that store, along with the other 12 or so women and a few men who had ventured out into the cold. It’s funny how in an art store it’s so quiet. It’s akin to walking into a library.

I couldn’t bare to throw out all the wallpaper we took off the walls. Much of it came off in large sheets; big enough to draw upon. I rolled it up, bagged it and saved it. The bottom most layer of wallpaper dates back to Circa 1920.

Between life becoming busy and life seeming mundane, grey and somewhat frustrating I can’t say that I haven’t been feeling sad lately because I have.
I’m tired of being single and feeling lonely
I’m tired of people writing and blatantly saying they are going to copy me but as they don’t sell on Etsy; it’s ok.
I’m tired of idiots that are disguised as gentlemen who won’t return a journal that rightfully belongs to me.
I’m tired of this city
I’m tired of not earning enough to own my own place
I’m tired of being so close I can taste it
I’m tired of not understanding Google Analytics
I’m just very tired lately and everything seems to be bothering me.
…and I’m working hard and I’ll be damned if I’ll be down for that long because there are goals to meet this year…
And a wave of sadness washed over me
