Happy 2015!?! Yeah, I'm a little late. I have no excuse, other than living.
I have no project's to share.
I can't even recall that last time I touched a sewing machine or needle and thread.
There's been lots of cooking (I could do a whole post+ about how I've changed my eating and feel fantastic!), some knitting and bits of doodling.
I'm happy to report that after a long drought, I'm feeling creative again, all thanks to doodling. I started the new year with a new sketchbook and a desire to experiment with watercolors. I tried, but I wasn't feeling it. Then I rediscovered my Scribble Diary. I LOVE my Scribble Diary! I'm not sure if I ever blogged about it, but I got it 3 years ago...and it's BRILLIANT. There's no blank page syndrome. There are guidelines, which I like... and it's journaling!
I use it by randomly opening a page, then filling it out. Sometimes the prompts work for me, sometimes not. If they don't, I simply scratch it out :-) Sometimes I draw flowers or hearts in the empty spaces. Whatever. It's fun!!
And then I color it. More fun!! I treated myself to "nice"colored pencils (not the cheapest set in the store, but certainly not the top of the line), quality does make a difference! My goal is to fill the entire journal by the end of the year. I think I can do that.
Since turning on my scribble faucet, I am feeling the flow. More than once I've felt the urge to pull out some scraps to start sewing. I feel a quilt coming on.
The lesson I've learned from this is sometimes you've just got to do it - make that first step...you never know where it will take you!
I'm hoping that 2015 is filled with LOTS of making and doing ;-)
