Creative endevours

Not a bad day. I mailed a postcard that I had painted to a friend who has initiated a postcard exchange. She suggested it as a way to start her painting again. I've done some A215 writing, and posted a piece of freewriting for my tutorial group to laugh at (you can read it here). Beth might recognise the beginning! I've started something for the tutorial exercise. And I've done some more illustrated journalling. Here is yesterday's and today's. Neither are brilliant, but I'm enjoying drawing and painting them. The scanner did something wierd to the first one, but I quite like it. Serendipity, I think that's called.

You have been productive! I feel ashamed of my idle day.

I left a comment earlier on the structured freewrite.

Where did you leave a comment on the structured freewrite? On Writing Me Down? Oh, dear. I'd better check my settings. I can't find one.

As for your day being idle - it's DIY Friday. You can't possibly be productive under the circumstances ;)

Your painting is very nice, the colors are beautiful, too.
It is pouring snow here. Power will probably go out, not to worry anymore we have a permanently installed generator that clicks on automatically, it doesn't supply everything, but we get what we need.
My son bought me a Nano IPOd with a portable dock.
I am listening to some gorgeous music right now.
I start my memoir classes at Gotham Feb 22.
Well, I am off to journal and then work on a story.
Bye all,
The wild ducks came to the pond yesterday, so I assumed it was nearing speing and now it is
snowing.

Connie,
Thank you, I'm glad you like the paintings. They look better somehow scanned in and put on a website.

I hope you are not buried in snow. Is it pretty? Do you get a lot of snow? Poor Ducks will be pretty cold.

An ipod is a nice present. Rick has one, he's wild about it.

Glad you're still journalling and writing.

Stay warm,
Carole

I LOVE the orange and blues together. And I like how you used blue to draw the notebook on the table, which was a much better choice, in my opinion, than black would have been.

BTW... welcome to the Everyday Matters list! I'm not sure if you're aware yet or not, but we have "challenges" almost every week. You don't HAVE to participate, but I find that when I do, it motivates me to draw and is just a lot of fun! You can find the back ones here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/everydaymatters/files/%2AWeekly-Challenges-FAQ/
... feel free to do any of the back ones that you want. Oh! And, if you do, and you feel like it, under the "links" section, you can link to the specific post for each challenge.

I've just read through severael posts on your blog and found it quite enjoyable!

Welcome, Misa!

Thank you for your comments on my pictures, and for the welcome to Everyday Matters. I think the weekly challenges are a good idea, for the same reason as you - I think they would make me draw. I will have a go at one next week.

Glad you enjoyed reading my blog. I'm never really sure whether my rambles are interesting or not!

Take care,
Carole

Welcome to Everyday Matters! I like the drawing of your journal and coffee (?) in your journal! Neat!

Hello Carole,
The snow is beautiful, but it brought some erribly cold temps with it. The ducks are still there and they have increased from 3 to seven.
Did you read about the new tomb discovery in Egypt? I think that is an extremely interesting discovery after 80 years. It didn't get much news coverage, probably because it is not violent. We get violence covered well.
Bye for now,
Connie

Lovely!

Malinda - thank you for the welcome!

Connie - I read the tomb discovery via Woolgathering. It's amazing. And I share your frustration that violence takes priority on news coverage.

Hashi - thank you!
