Month: March 2011

Finally, Spring is here!! It's hard to believe we had snow on the ground last week, it's so nice out today.  Nothing reminds me of Spring more than tulips so that had to be today's drawing.  I corrected the name of the pen I've used for the last three , it is a Pelikan 120 not a Pilot 120 as I had written previously.

I don’t know what I’d do without this lamp on my desk.  The older I get , the more light I need to see.

If Ithought I was exhausted yesterday, eeshhh!!  We are all recovering from being sick but the oldest two had said they would go to the youth lock-in and DH was to be a chaperone, so they all left last night to have an all-nighter with their friends.  I stayed home with the two youngest and we had a movie marathon and junk food fest.  When the rest of the gang got home at 7 am, we hit the sack and didn’t wake up till 5pm.  Talk about messing up your schedule!!

Today is just a sketchy sketch, half the family is sick and I’m running around feeding them and doing the ‘Mom’ thing…  This was my spoon as a baby.  Compared to the spoons with plastic handles covered in bright cartoon characters that my kiddos had, it seems pretty plain.  It really looks like someone bent a regular silver spoon into a loop for a baby to hold.  I like the simplicity of it.

I was scribbling around with a fat 4- 4.5 mm sketch lead and testing out a new Stonehenge journal when R4 saw my monkey drawing.  He said it wasn’t scribbling and should be todays drawing.  How sweet!

I cleaned  and polished the stinky Swan pen from yesterday to see if I could get rid of the burnt rubber smell.  It smells better now and is OK to use, cool since it is a nifty vintage fountain pen.  I drug this little dolphin-shaped, ceramic ocarina off the shelf for today’s drawing.  R3 screeched when I tried playing it, LOL!!
