Hello, friends! I have to confess that I've been trapped somewhere between burnout and depression lately. But I'm rallying. So let's focus on the positive!
Here's a little bit about life around here right now:
FYI: DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK IN THE WORD T-SHIRTS. I DID NOT PUT IT IN THIS BLOG POST AND I CAN'T SEEM TO GET RID OF IT.
Pajama bottom like they're pants, ice-dyed t-shirts, and lots of handmade masks:
So. Many. Baby. Things. Our most recent purchase: a bag full of silicone balls and blocks. He seems happy with them:
And, yes, I did shove one of our couch cushions in the back of the PackN'Play so that he wouldn't conk his head when he falls backwards. His sitting is getting better, but he's still wobbly. His head size is in the 99th percentile, so I'm very impressed that he can sit at all!
What are you reading?
I continue to storm through the harlequin romance novel e-books on my phone and kindle. They're complete escapism and I love them for that. I just finished The Captain and The Wallflower. It had a better than usual mystery component.
Current art crush?
Can I crush on a collaboration instead of a single person? I'm 100% obsessed with @patricia.nordeen and @nullsie's #100daysofpandemicpenpals. In essentials, they are each making art in a blank sketchbook every day and then plan to mail them to each other at the end of the project. How cool is that? And how awesome to have someone along for an epic 100 day journey. And what a bright light during quarantine! There are so many things I love about this project, including the fabulous art these two talented ladies are creating. Check it out:
I love this project and I love this pages...but I'm not sure I could give away my sketchbook to someone else. I'd have to really loooove them. How about you? Could you participate in a project like this and let your sketchbook go at the end?
So, there you have it! That's the scoop on life around here at the moment. If you're a member, I should have May's vlog up in the online classroom this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
