art journal, inspiration

>Star of the Show

>This one just came to me tonight while watching television. Absolutely nothing planned. I had no idea what I was doing, I just went with the flow. I LOVE this page.

She’s in my spiral journal. I used a piece of wrapping paper (the tarot cards on the left), a page from a children’s book, a piece of ruled paper, acrylics, watercolour crayons and pencils, crayons, Glaze pens, Sharpie PosterPaint Markers and Micron pens. Oh and a small paper flower with a brad.

I’m too tired to continue my book tonight. I’ll have plenty of time tomorrow. Besides, the word count came easier than I had expected. So off to bed I am.


>My new mug

>Two weeks ago, mom and I went to paint another piece of ceramic. This time, I decided to go for a huge mug (for cafe au lait) and painted it with fun colours. Mom painted a cute little piggy bank. She picked up the finished pieces this week and I was able to finally use my mug this morning. What great timing! Making a huge mug of cafe au lait while getting started on my novel!

That’s right! NaNoWriMo has started. I stayed up late last night so I could get started at 12:01 precisely. And I did start then.

So far, I wrote 1941 words which is pretty good for my first day. I might continue tonight after watching CSI and Grey’s Anatomy. I’m telling the story from the point of view of a bird. And so far, it’s about a girl named Miss T (or Misty but I wanted her name to count for at least two words!) She understands the language of animals and insects. Plenty of possibilities can arise from that! I’m excited. I’m tired but pumped at the same time.

Now I should eat lunch before going to work. It’s a ped day (no classes, just daycare program) and I’m working a bit more hours. I was supposed to work 12:55 to 5:30 but I was asked if I could come in this morning from 8:00 to 9:00 which I did (AND I’m getting paid an extra 15 minutes because I agreed to do it!) I swear to everything holy, I am loving LOVING my job at this school. So different from the last one. So much better. And Anik and I get along so well working together. It’s wonderful.

Now, if only the Universe could send me that wonderful, loving man I asked for! 😀

Oh yeah! I’m getting a Nikon D40x tomorrow! My brother bought a better model and is selling me this one for less. Woohoo! (One more answer from the Universe!)
