The Cottage

In previous AEDM years, I would slowly give up as we got to the middle of the month because weekends are tough for me to get me time in.  I wouldn't feel right if I didn't finish a small piece.  This time around I'm looking at it differently.  It's about taking the time out to do something - anything.  So even if I only had a few minutes, I felt satisfied.

Today was a day spent crafting with friends.  I don't think I accomplished much other than talking more than I have in a long time. #aedm2011

I ended up having a great three day weekend!  For the first time ever, I got together with friends old and new to spend the day crafting and chatting.  SO MUCH FUN!  I didn't seem to get much done because I would stop what I was doing to either talk or listen.  But that's okay, because we made times for ourselves.

Moving ideas to watercolor paper for #aedm2011

On the other days, I took a few minutes here and there to complete one project.  Sketching out ideas, moving an idea over to watercolor paper, inking in details, and adding in watercolor.  All baby steps that I took starting on Thursday and finishing up on Monday.

Started inking in more details and #watercolor painting for today. #aedm2011

I don't feel like I accomplished much, but the fact that I got something done at all is awesome!
