Embracing Imperfection

I have a small 'booklet' journal I made from plain computer paper.
It’s only eighteen pages but I’ve promised myself I’m going to fill it if it kills me!
I’ve never finished a journal yet and I’m determined to finish at least one!
I added color to some of the pages thinking it would help with the ‘blank page’ syndrome.
I was wrong…..
This is one of the pages.
It’s wonky and totally out of perspective, a really bad drawing and yet……I’m satisfied with it.
Go figure, lol!
Reeeaaallly embracing it! lol

Throwback Thursday

Can’t you just hear him grunt as he picks up the pumpkin? It took a while to explain he could only have ONE.  He kept adding to the pile….

I’m Having Too Much Damn Fun

I signed up for yet another Carla Sonheim class. Cats!

I’ve been overextended this month so I didn’t get around to it until yesterday.
I’ve only done lesson one so far and I didn’t really think much about it when I viewed the video.
Similar to her other classes I’ve taken.

Draw stylized cats.
Make watercolor ‘blobs’ and find cats in them.

So I just splattered around some paint and let it dry.

Went back in to ‘find’ the cats and……suddenly……here are these amazingly expressive characters. 
I don’t mean to toot my own horn (she says tooting her own horn) but I’m loving these three!
And as I was scanning them, these captions screamed to be included.

So here I sit, scanning and typing and giggling like mad. 

I’m easily amused.

Punny Monday

Why did the capacitor kiss the diode? He just couldn't resistor.

My Mother Thought This Was Terribly Funny

I had an impacted wisdom tooth.
They broke my jaw getting it out.
I don’t have any recollection of that whole week except:
            My mother thought it was hysterical and it HAD to be documented.
             I was on a liquid diet.
             I  prayed at the altar of Percodan. 
This is further proof I come from perverse genes. What kind of loving mother thinks this is funny AND takes pictures for posterity?????

The visual definition of ‘self satisfaction’!
