My blog has taken a bit of a backseat this last month. Sorry!.
Being a Mum and all that entails has engulfed my every waking moment. I usually have to wait till everyone is in bed (husband included) to get in the right head space to even think about doodling. These last few weeks has seen me put the kids to bed and crawl into my own almost immediately….completely spent!
I signed up to Doodle Day Mayto try to give me the incentive but the flu has had its own claim on my time. But now…finally..here I am…snot free and ready to doodle.
This is my 13th May doodle..the theme was ‘Through a Window’ and this image popped into my mind. The view from our hotel room when we went on our (1 night) honeymoon 18 months ago. Amazing view, amazing food, amazing times…all my memories are…amazing!
I recently joined an online group challenge…’Doodle Day May’ I came across Alison Hertz blog…well I can’t remember how but I did..and it was just the push I needed.
Each day Alison uploads a Drawing Prompt word and then you’re off. http://alisonhertz.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/doodle-day-may-day-1.html
My favourite so far has been DAY 10 -Draw One-Continuous-Line. Something I would never think to do but becomes quite addictive.
Three exciting things happened this week. One, Society6 sent me an email saying my “I Like Black” girl has been added to their print shop. Not quite sure what the implications are of this but I’m guessing it means I will reach a bigger audience. Woohoo! http://society6.com/product/I-Like-Black_Print
Now I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing in regards to Twitter with all the @ and # but I’m fumbling my way through and have …wait for it….6 followers already…none of them related to me in any way so click the link on the right and join the throng!!!
Things have been quiet on the blog front…family life has taken a bit more of my time lately but I have managed to squeeze in my first ever paid Illustration job!!!!!!!
Probably one of the most nerve-wracking things I’ve done so far….the sketching….the totally agonising wait for feedback but then the pure joy of hearing how happy my little doodles made someone ….so happy in fact.. they were willing to part with their hard-earned cash!!!
Now what I was paid compared to the hours I put in will not see me buying my wine by the bottle instead of the box yet…but I’m on my way!!!!!
