My friend Fred recently told me I need to blog more. And he's absolutely right, though ironically he's the one who got me back into photography, which has left me with a crafting deficit and not much to talk about. So, I was bored yesterday evening and started doodling and this is what I ended up with:
These are just some drawings of some photos I took, I especially like the way the newspaper one came out. I think it would make a great threadless shirt, though I'm sure Fred wouldn't want his image plastered on a bunch of t-shirts all over the world. (At least I don't think he would?) But anywho, I like them enough that I may have them framed together and use them in a show someday. They took me forever because I really need to draw more often, but it was worth it. I think I want to try taking some candid shots of Angela while she's painting and do some drawings of her. If you'd like to see the original photos then check out my flickr here.
I know it's been, what, a month since my last post? Eh, I know. But there's really nothing too exciting to report here. The weather's finally cleared up and all this springy sunshine has been making me get out of the house, and subsequently, away from the crafting table. But even though I wish I was crafting more, I've been having so much fun going out and having a real social life for once. I've made a lot of new friends and I've been to some really amazing places. Spent a lot of time at the beach and at art shows, and the new food blog has been keeping me fat and happy lol. Instead of crafting, these days I find myself out taking photos. Or when I am home I've really been practicing hard on my guitar and I'm getting pretty good at Ring Out the Bell by Travis and Closer by Dido. And I've been writing poetry again, something I haven't done since high school. So sorry I haven't got a new project to share, but life calls and I can't spend all my time inside doing crafty stuff even if I want to! But here's a pic of the latest full chalkboard, with a warning that there is a bit of adult content, lol.
