Totally Blanked…Grrr

First, I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Now, it is no surprise that I have a terrible (w/ capital “T”) memory. <——Yup that’s me….lol

Over the weekend I worked on the cards for my Mom. Friday things were not going well…not well at all. Friday was one of those craft days that ended with a head bang on the desk!….ok…well not for physical real, but I sure was thinking about it.

Thankfully Saturday and Sunday were a ‘lil less craft brutal. I even managed to make 13 cards, which is roughly half I need.

What do they look like? How did they turn out? Funny you should ask. Especially since I usually post them on this blog. Well somebody(me) didn’t take 1 picture…. not a 1….. duhhhhh

So, instead I’m posting my progression of working on my  little sketch heads. I can definitely tell a difference, but I find I’m having a few decision making problems. It never fears every time it’s time to draw(sketch) eyes, lips and nose I can never decide how I like them to look…..for now we’ll see what the pencil(my hand) leaves behind. Then move on and be surprised after every ‘lil face….lol Fun Fun Fun!

Sorry for the lack of variety. With any luck I will be a better blog owner and remember to post my next creation.

Happy Crafting!!

Whew..Time Flies…

Man, I can’t believe it has already been 14 days since my last post. How crazy fast that felt.

Finally! Several weeks ago I bought Jane Davenport’s book, “Drawing & Paintaing Beautiful Faces”. It is also available on her website.  What’s the big deal you ask? Well, I have been wanting to take her Beautiful Faces Workshop and she requires her book that I mentioned above to be used in tandem while taking the workshop.



Since money makes the world go ’round, and life is as it is I was in a short holding pattern for $$$ to purchase the workshop…lol Especially this time of year!

WooooHooo! Today’s the day!! I’m sure I don’t have to say(type) I couldn’t start watching the first lesson fast enough…lol

By now I have obviously watched the first video and have been happily practicing my heart out on any available writing surface…..well ok…almost any..heehee Although I have a lifetime of fun fun practicing ahead of me I have to start somewhere.

Unfortunately, as readers of this post you get to experience the rough beginnings. Luckily this documented beginning could’ve been worse…lol



Ok…..sooo sorry if you’re doing an eye roll, but I decided I needed to post my last practice of the day.You’ll be glad to hear(read) that I’m not going to post a bunch of 50 practice heads each day…go ahead say a silent thank you to the sky above….lol. I figure maybe the first and last each day…….could more likely end up being just the last of the day.

For the record I will be doing other workshops and other stuff. I will for sure be starting to make some Christmas cards my Mom just asked me to make. Ok, as dumb as this sounds it is so much easier for me to sit down and bury myself in paper & art goodies(I LOVE TO DO) when I have an actual mission. Somehow it gets me started and I can just start playing. It’s like I have a boulder clogging up my creative everything otherwise.
