Flowers in a Vase

pencil drawing flowers in a vase

 Yesterday I got out the good old sketchbook and had some quality drawing time.  I was in serious need of some drawing practice.  Back in my college days it was easy to keep it up because I had assignments due every week.  I had deadlines and motivation and time.  

Now I'm a stay-at-home mom and my time to sit down to draw is very limited.  I had forgotten how much I love drawing.  I don't ever want to lose it.

Simple Magnets

little car magnets

 Here they are... the easiest magnets to make in the world! 
  
Here's what I used to make them:
  • Magnetic Buttons
  • Chipboard Circles ( I found these at Michaels for $1)
  • Tacky Glue

Winter Flowers

ahhhh, flowers! These make me so happy!  My husband gave them to me for Valentine's Day and one month later, they are still alive, mostly.  They don't get quite enough sunlight in my dark apartment.   I prefer potted flowers any day to cut flowers.  They last so much longer. 

Things have been super slow around here, as you can tell.  I've started a few projects, but have been unable to finish them.  I'm still working through health stuff, which seriously stinks.  At least I have my flowers!
