Inspired by lettters

Greg brought in a bushel basket of old wooden letters he found in his barn. He said his dad probably picked them up at an auction. Our class focused on lettering today. We talked about ways to incorporate creative lettering styles into our journals. Even though I was supposed to be coming up with sketches for creatively expressing a quote or something, I couldn’t resist drawing this basket of letters…it was the first thing that caught my eye when I walked in the room…and I am glad I didn’t ignore it. It’s such an unusual collection and was great fun to draw!

Sleeping the day away

This afternoon I took a few minutes to draw Karson. He is seven months old. He is so cute when he sleeps. I love to sleep next to him and cuddle up to his warm little body. Sometimes when he is sleepy he likes to hold my fingers and look into my eyes until he falls alseep.

What started all this…

Today I began my Illustrated Journaling class at Ella Sharp Museum. I waited unti the last minute to sign up, but I am so glad I did. My reason for taking this class is to get my creative juices flowing again and do something creative for myself. I hope I can also develop a consistent habit of journaling everyday. I enjoyed today’s class so much. I am already looking forward to next Saturday!
