My motto this year is "use it"
That's a whole post in and of itself.
I have a problem with actually using my supplies, as I might use them up. It's so ridiculous.
Another angle is that I love new things, and once I open supplies, they are absorbed into the "whole" not new.
The problem with that is I am not enjoying them. So this is me enjoying my new calendar. I am using it to make daily lists.
I usually make a list then lose it, then spend time looking for it, and don't get stuff done. Now my daily lists can be in one location. I still don't get it all done, but I can find the list!
I am in love with this whole thing. The images are fun to color and I am using my new prisma color pencil box gift from DH, my biggest supporter. He loves it when I write stories, so he keeps me in notebooks and pens. He loves my drawings and paintings, so he buys me paints and paper to paint on...
Instead of sending me to a neurosis counselor, he kindly ordered a fresh set, in this really compact metal kit.
With a face on it! Yea! Now my big set stays with my big sketch pad, and this one stays with the calendar and I feel rich Rich Rich!
I liked to color as a little girl. I spent hours with the crayola box of 64, WITH the sharpener in the back. I like to draw, but these little weekly drawings are highly enticing. Mindlessly adding color and shadows and seeing how colors mix when overlapped. It's a small thing, but a major thing to me.
And I actually get to periodically cross items off a list. Today I re-painted my now missing pieces. I am finishing the binding on the Kaleidoscope and love how the quilting on the border came out. I have joined two new challenge groups for 2016 which means I am still carrying over the connections word from last year.
So much to learn... so much...
