I know that it has been months since I last wrote. I have been super busy and going through some personal stuff. And unfortunately, I know that the next few months is going to be really insane for me. So this is a quick post to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about you guys, just been busy.
One of the things that I have been doing is cleaning out my yarn collection. I have 7 huge plastic bins of yarn, two storage ziplock bags, a trunk full of yarn, and not to mention the little boxes around the house, full of yarn. Then my hairdresser gave me some yarn that one of her other customers gave her. And when I said some yarn, I mean two huge boxes. My plan is to try to get the yarn down to 5 plastic bins and maybe a couple of small decorative boxes. Those boxes are by the couch where I watch tv.
That is bag number 3 and 4 that I had sent to donation. There is a church here that is looking for yarn donation so they can knit blankets and other items for the homeless. I already been going through my patterns to see of what to take off my list of things that I want to knit and crochet. So far, I had removed 65 items. I am still wittering down the list.
I have been doing some art journaling lately in order to relax. One of the journal prompts is to do 4 backgrounds, don’t think about it, just do it.
I had this pattern paper for years and I had no idea of what to do with it. I finally put a coat of thin white paint just to tone it down. I am thinking of using the one word prompt challenge. But so far, I haven’t found a word that I like. I have been using one word generators on the computer, but the words they come up are either ones that I have no idea of what it means, or hard to do. For example, how I can art journal about flinching, bending, or northern. I want art journal to relax me, not to stress me out.
I am hoping that I will be more vigil with my blog.
