NaNoWriMo, Blogging, Journaling, and Blue Hair…

So, today is the first of November, and I have made myself some goals.  The first is to write a lot more.  I am not doing NaNoWriMo per se, but I do want to write more this month, so I am making my challenge to just write MORE every day.  Already kicked off a nice little story today, so I feel hopeful.

The second is to blog every day.  I don’t think I have ever done this, but I would like to see if I can pull it off.  Some days it may be a picture of a finished work, a work in progress, on my pets doing something cute.  But I am aiming for daily (and even I know I am not THAT interesting 😉 ) so we will see what happens…

And third, keep up my daily journaling.  Right now I am on the sixth day of a streak… I slagged off for a while, so I am getting back on the horse… and enjoying the process again.  I hope to keep it up.  Maybe this will keep me accountable.

So, to make this post vaguely interesting… Here is a picture of me on Halloween with blue hair.  I am hoping one day to have this hair…

My Two Blonde Girls

This year I have been taking a class called When Frogs Sing.  I love it!  We learn something new every 3 weeks.  Lately, I have been posting more of what I have done in the class.  This last round we have been learning how to draw, shade and color folk and semi realistic faces.  Here are a couple I have done.  I call them ‘my 2 blonde girls’ (although, they are really both the same girl. 😉

My Heart Belongs To… Me!?!?

So, you remember my heart from yesterday?  Well, I finished it!  This one kinda turned in to a self-love kind of spread.  And, although it’s pretty unlike me, I like this one (crooked heart and all 😉 ) But Effy does have a way of making me stretch myself, and push me out of my box 🙂  And I am counting this one as part of Your Stuff… Use It!, it is an art journal, and I did use my already owned stuff… (notice the rare, unique, relatively new picture you will see of me…)

To this spread I added:

  • a picture of me, printed at home on the inkjet (sealed with hair spray)
  • washi tape
  • more stamped ink
  • deli paper
  • ball point pen for journaling
  • I had a Golden High Gloss Varnish that had come in a multi-pack, and I thought this was a good opportunity to break it out. (and I LOVE the look and feel =D)
  • oh, and liquid mat medium to sick on the deli paper…

Words are blurred for the protection of the innocent (or at least me) 😉  So, has anyone else been using their stuff this week?  Tell me about it in the comments.  Leave me a link… come out and play! 🙂
