You know that saying ‘Done is better than perfect’?
I’ve taken it a step further…..’Done is better than nothing’!
I seem to be in that cycle of everything I touch turns to s**t mode lately. (And it doesn’t help that I need to be getting ready for a gift fair in December!)
But I’m trudging along anyway.
So, in the name of truth in blogging I’m posting the shitty posts/illustrations anyway. (Just in case you think that everything we do is supposed to be good, here’s the proof that we ALL stink sometimes!)
This is just a silly little memory that popped into my head the other day.
I was watching King Kong (the 1933 version) on TV. Well, not really watching but it was on in the background.
And it sparked a memory of the first time I saw it.
I was at Phyllis Davenport’s house.
And the most vivid memory I have of Phyllis Davenport is how I envied her hair!
(Side note: my mother always kept my hair short and in a ‘pixie’ cut. She thought it was cute.
I always wanted LONG hair that would hang down and brush the ground when I tipped back on the swings like Phyllis Davenport’s hair did!)
I can still remember how she would lean way back as she pumped on the swings and her hair would flow out behind her and brush the ground.
I have NO idea why I thought that was so cool.
Looking back on it now it’s kind of yucky! LOL
So here is a totally lousy illustration of that memory:
But I had to get it out of my head and down on ‘paper’. (I’m not fishing for compliments so please don’t feel obligated to say anything nice! LOL)
