Last Week @ a Glance (nov 28-Dec 4) / Daily Affirmation 

    Artist mom life… Check out the quote I wrote for this week. 🤓 what does this mean to you? To me? Well, celebrate every success, big and small, but don’t linger there and think you’ll still grow closer to your goals. If you aren’t careful, in a blink of an eye, you could be working your way from the bottom up again. It happens, trust me. Always keep it moving forward. 
❤️ Daily Affirmation: I will always keep moving forward❤️

I’m getting better at balancing housework and my art work. It’s Not Easy but totally doable. The only frustration is finding some time during the day (other than 6am) to work peacefully. 

  Having this little booger floating around while I’m focused is ridiculous and hard. She’s the little ninja of the house. Silent, quick, and curious. Bad combinations. Still, I’m figuring this all out. I’ll let you k of if I come up with a surefire plan. ❤️

   I think I’m getting another calender for Christmas. I hope so. I’m going all crazy on it! I don’t know, I’m such a sucker for keeping track, colorful pens, and… Stickers…. Don’t judge me. 😌 

How about you? Are you a calender keeper? Do you have to balance art and kids?

Night Owl Chronicles :Change is Good : Daily Affirmation 

   I know it’s Thursday (already Friday for some of you ☺️). Here’s a  glance at my week so far,minus Thursday . Changing my routine a little, like my pork out at night, is an adjustment. I’m not sure why I decided to do it, but the change made it fresh for me again, I guess. Working out usually wakes me up, but I  think it’s calming my mind down now. I still do my Night-owl thing, but falling asleep when I lay down hasn’t been as hard as usual. Change can be good, even one’s you didn’t plan. Especially those.

 ❤️ So, Today’s Affirmation : The changes I make will change my world in a good way.❤️ 

   What other changes have I made this week…  working  with Batman’s overtime schedule , first time at “toddler time”  tomorrow , oh, and I shared some #lineart I’m really proud of today. 🤓 THAT was cool. 

Talk about getting over a “fear hump”  or two. . . or three. 😡 such is life, and I’m damn proud of myself!  I recorded another video of the “Lyme Warriors ” banner today too, but I’ll post it tomorrow . I put alot of energy into my work today. And I plan on doing it all over again tomorrow .

 I know what you’re  thinking, somethings’ off about this line art.  Your thinking,  “why a Mermaid? ” . I’m kidding, the butterfly in the jar?  I don’t know. When I first drew It, it was just an empty jar. Then Batman asked,  “why a Jar? “.  You  see the rabbit hole with a question like that,  right? 🐰 

When  I did the initial sketch, it was 3am,and I was trying to make myself go to sleep. Well, somehow, a pencil and my sketch journal ‘fell’ into my lap while laying down. It was the strangest thing… 🙄

   One thing I can tell you I believe , when you have inspired thought, you have to act on it, no matter what. I can’t remember where I’d heard that before, but it stuck with me. The urge to draw was strong and I still don’t know where the idea came from… L.
