Still here...

I'm still here.


I hope that soon I can start a blog post without complaining about how busy I am, and how I wish I had more time to dedicate to this space and to my art... But truly, it has been crazy over here. Work, work, work. And when I'm home, I'm thinking about work (at least half the time anyway). I'm trying to fit in as much as I can, but some nights, I really just want to crash in front of the TV, read some blogs and sleep.

I have been creative though. In fact, here's a list of my on-going creative endeavours for this month:

  • I signed up for another Christy Tomlinson e-course, this time hosted by Danielle Daniel - HerStory. I think it will be a nice complement to the She Art course I took this spring. 
  • I've been writing - and "publishing" - a new story on Wattpad. My next goal is to get my Krez story up there too.  
  • I've been working away at my 2013 Woodland sampler - and planning on signing up for the autumn sampler to go with the spring and summer ones.
  • Lastly, I've also been doodling away in a new sketchbook (the simple ones by Studio Pro that I find for cheap at Wal-Mart and Target). Here's some evidence of that:
  • Besides that, we went skating for the first time this season on the long weekend (and I hope to go as often as possible... as soon as they reopen public skating. Ice time is all booked up at the beginning of September for hockey and figure skating). I'm so ready for the cooler temperatures! 

    On top of all that, I've also been learning German through a fun app called Duolingo. I would have gone with Dutch since I randomly tried to learn that language last year (I really want to learn another language!), except the app only offered a few languages and Dutch wasn't one of them. So German it is (in honour of my heritage of course). I'm having fun with it!

    Ich habe eine gute Zeit!

    How is your September shaping up?

    Sound very busy! It's been that way here too, but this and next week will be a little slower, like a very welcome lull...and then full force again
