Hello dear readers! I’m sorry for being gone so long without any explanation. Life got in the way of creating and blogging. Also, there was the wee matter of a break-up. But now I’m back and I’m here to stay… I hope! I haven’t done many things in the past month except work, work and work. I started Nanowrimo and even though I’m still technically participating, I know I won’t have 50,000 words by the end of the month. And I’m ok with it. I’ve been stuck in a rut, creatively speaking, so last weekend, I decided to participate in … Continue reading She’s baack! – La revoilà!
> Remember my mini-book entitled “33 things to do at 33“? Vous souvenez-vous de mon mini-livre titré “33 choses à faire à 33“? One of the things on my list was to attend a Nanowrimo write-in. A write-in is a gathering of people participating in Nanowrimo at a specified place where they can eat, drink and, most importantly, write. This year, for the first time, I attended a write-in in my area. In fact, I attended 5 write-ins as well as the pre-Nano meetup and the “Thank God It’s Over” meetup. And I am glad I did. I saved a … Continue reading >33 things: 1st thing – 33 choses: 1ère chose
> 30 days 50,000 words I did it! I wrote a novel and now I can move one… until next year! So I am back to blogging. Although, with the craziness of the holidays fast approaching, I don’t think I will keep a strict schedule like I had been doing for the past 6 months or so. Here’s the plan: I will be blogging from Monday to Friday, showing mostly my creations but sometimes giving you links to posts/photos from others that I find inspiring. I’ll be back tomorrow! 30 jours. 50,000 mots. J’ai réussi! J’ai écrit un roman et … Continue reading >I’m back – Je suis de retour
> This one was inspired by Tammy’s Origami Mandala over at Daisy Yellow. No curved. It was an interesting exercise. I realized I really like drawing curvy lines! But I do like the result here. Have you challenged yourself to try something different lately? Celui-ci est inspiré par le Mandala Origami de Tammy chez Daisy Yellow. Aucune courbes. Ce fut un exercice intéressant. Je me suis rendu compte que j’aime beaucoup dessiner des lignes courbées! Mais j’aime beaucoup le résultat ici. Vous êtes-vous poussées à essayer quelque chose de différent dernièrement? Nanowrimo update: 15,447 words as of last night. … Continue reading >Mandala Aztek
> I have 3 photos for you today. The first and second one were done for an experiment for Daisy Yellow. J’ai 3 photos pour vous aujourd’hui. Les première et deuxième ont été faites pour une expérimentation pour Daisy Yellow. I first drew squares with Neocolor II crayons then covered everything with a layer of white gesso. J’ai d’abord dessiné des carrés avec mes Neocolor II puis j’ai recouvert le tout d’une couche de gesso. This third photo is of a spread I made to answer 2 challenges: NaNoJouMo and The Queen of Creativity Castle’s Creative Challenge. Cette troisième … Continue reading >Experiments and NaNoJouMo – Expérimentations et NaNoJouMo
> November is here. Which means I will be spending the better part of my waking hours attempting to write a novel. I’m still planning to create and post here every weekday. But I will keep most of my written words for my novel instead of my blog. Le mois de Novembre est ici. Ce qui veut dire que je passerai la majeure partie des mes heures éveillées à essayer d’écrire un roman. J’ai tout de même l’intention de créer et d’afficher ici chaque jour de semaine. Mais je garderai mes mots écrits pour mon roman plutôt que mon blogue. Continue reading >Music scrapbook pages – Pages scrapbooking de musique
> Something simple today. I signed up for Nanowrimo again this year. And tonight, I will be attending my first Nanowrimo meet-up. I have a very faint idea for my novel so I’m hoping to find inspiration by talking with fellow Wrimos. If you signed up for Nanowrimo, feel free to add me as a writing buddy. My friend Kate has created her very own Ning network, The Queen of Creativity Castle. We’re already 24 members and it’s the second day so don’t be shy to take a look and join in the fun. Creative challenges, discussions, videos and soon, … Continue reading >Stringy mandala – Mandala filamenteux
