Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?
It depends. Grocery shopping on a budget sucks, but shopping for craft/art supplies or gifts does not provided you don’t have to stick to a tight budget. Also, I enjoy parks when the weather is nice. The great outdoors isn’t so great here right now.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
Oh this is easy! I would be a Birkenstock sandal, purple suede Arizona style to be exact. I wear my Birks as much of the year as possible. Having large wide feet really makes you appreciate a well-made shoe.
What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?
The one and only time I’ve ever locked myself out of a house was when I lived in my great-grandmother’s house with a roommate. There was a screened in front porch that had a locking storm door that I didn’t realize she had locked. Fortunately the basement had small windows and one of those wasn’t locked. Nothing like crawling in through your own window.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
I prefer that Josh keep his pants on while I’m eating. 😉 Again, kind of depends on the food but most of the time I enjoy nuts.
While running the errands on Saturday, Josh and I ended up at Target. That place is totally my undoing. Most of what we picked up was stuff we needed, but I just had to check out the Legos in the toy section. And I came home with a mini-fig. Wanna see?
I came across the idea of using mini-figs to hold charging cables on Pinterest. When I opened my pouch and saw this little fellow I knew instantly that he was just the man for the job. I’ve attached him to my desk using poster putty and so far it’s working quite well.
I’ve also been working hard on my 28 day challenge. I was able to finish removing the backgrounds from the remaining designs this morning. I also started two new designs last night after I shut down the electronics. This is what they looked like when I resumed work this morning.
I had originally intended this to be a single design, but I really just don’t think they look like they belong together. So I finished the outlining and then did a scan with no color so that I could play with manipulating them digitally. I’m still going to finish the color by hand with my pencils, which means I’ll have to scan and separate them digitally again, but I want to see if I can get a satisfactory result if I do color through the software.
I am taking a self-proclaimed snow day. We got something like 8″ of snow on top of some freezing rain over the weekend and I just turn into a total bundle of nerves when I have to drive in this shit. I’ve got a fuck-ton of vacation time on the books and nothing scheduled for today, so I’m still sitting here in jammies. I plan to get ahead with my school reading and get a few bonus chores done today on top of coloring the drawings. Since I don’t ever have sick kids to use as an excuse to miss work this is how I make up for it.
