First of all it was Draw Your Awesome Year and getting the June background finished and on to filling in the days based on travel notes. Next was Journal 52. This became more complicated as the grand ideas for each weekly prompt just never worked and lots of angst and rethinking followed. Looking at Chelle's samples, I felt this was meant to be simple and nothing more than a background for journaling. One prompt was "Making a mandala". Since I have absolutely no interest in this topic and a complete inability to make repeated patterns of symmetrical shapes this was a tough one. Then i found a sample of Washi tapes, dye cut a circle from it and had fun with something completely crazy. Progress was extremely slow on completing all 6 prompts and one prompt remains to be made as using my Tombows and the blending pen to create a scene did not work. A re think, well a revision of my thinking on, how they should be used, resulted so this has to be re-done.
All of this was dispersed among parties celebrations, doctor visits and tests.
Celebrating hubby's(L) birthday with Art and Kay
Yesterday was the "water boarding Day". So named as the grand finale of several tests aimed at sending you into a spin, consisted of cold water then warm(it felt hot) water being poured into the ear. A very disorienting day followed. Computer problems, really lack of knowledge about the more complex things, to me, of the computer world has been a MAJOR time gobbler. Lets start with transferring photos from cell phone to blog /Facebook/ gmail. Simple! had to download app, Dropbox, and at a speed that makes the USPS look fast downloaded photos from phone to PC. YUK!
So here we are at Wednesday. Julie the queen of WOYWW, has been "proper poorly" though there are rumblings from the throne that she is making an excellent recovery. You go Julie; hang in there and make the most of the sick status.
