Twinkle

It’s the last month, and the only thing the prompt makes me think of is a screenshot I found on Pinterest of a Tumblr post. It reads: twinkle twinkle, little starwhy is art so fucking hard up above the world so highi can’t draw the other eye twinkle twinkle little fuckdammitwhat thei give up tumblr […]

I was thinking…

I was thinking about trying to write more next year. I had a heck of a lot of fun (as I always do) writing this November (when I finally got around to it — when life settled down enough to let it happen) that I want to keep it up. Of course, that feeling might […]

Thankful

I am thankful for Bliss Kiss’s nail oil. It does a really good job of healing my cuticles (which I have a tendency to bother with until my cuticles are a hot mess) when I remember to use it regularly. I am thankful for my family. Despite my significant lack of self-confidence, I am raising […]

CREATIVE THINGS

CREATIVE THINGS

Here’s a quick update on the Creative Things I’m doing lately. It’s just #Inktober2019 I’m really enjoying it. I end up staying almost on track – right now I’m behind 1 day so I’ll catch up when I get home on yesterday and today. My version of #Inktober is lettering with doodles since that is […]

Shiver

The temperatures are finally in the range where I wish I’d planned ahead and worn my jacket in the morning, but still warm enough that I’ll forget that jacket in the afternoon. It’s cool enough that yesterday, meeting a friend to exchange greetings (and dinner), my knees shook as the rain misted us and the […]

Anxiety/Frustration

Frustranxiety? That might work. I’m anxious. And frustrated. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. When I have time to craft, I just want to be behind a computer. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK, BRAIN. I don’t like this. I want to craft. I don’t want to be behind a computer. […]

It’s not working (Writer’s Group, No Writing!)

My writing group isn’t working for me. It’s not even a writing group like it was when we started. When we started, we got together and were quiet for giant swaths of time as we wrote, stopping to ask a question, get it answered, and move on. Sometimes we talked at length about someone’s story […]

Water, floating

I learned a thing from the Internet (so please don’t take this as gospel) that you’re supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in oz of water every day. (Have I mentioned this before? Please forgive me if I have.) So I’m giving it a shot. At first it was really hard. I felt like […]

CRAFT, sleep, lack of caffeine, and other things flying through my head at a million miles an hour

How much of that blog title will make it into the site URL, I wonder? I need to craft something. Usually I get this urge in December after writing hard during November, but it’s here now. I want to cross stitch or embroider (I don’t know how to do that, by the way), or maybe […]
