Here is the progress (above) on
my January calendar that has
a bit of drawing each day...
and a weekly page on which I decided
to write a few quotes.
"I have decided that I no longer want to
be an adult...if anyone needs me, I'll

There have been several days
of snow showers, but not a lot
of accumulation that lasted.

gesso on with a nearly dry brush
to resemble snow.
Some Artist Trading Card-sized

and that gives me room for lots of
doodles! Above, some colorful
squiggles and circles, along with a
sketch of the Rooibos Red Tea blossoms
drawn from my herbal tea packaging.
Also, I made Ginger Muffins after my
friend Elizabeth blogged about them!
Linking up with the T Tuesday blog hop,
and wishing you a creative week!
