What have I been up to these last few days?

Well, since I can't stick to one thing for very long (but I do eventually revisit usually) I have been making some things for my Etsy shop for Christmas. I don't have the Christmas items up yet but I do have some of the pendants up.

And also I have always loved headbands--even when I was a child I used to wear all colors of headbands but they weren't cute back then. As I mentioned in a previous post I have bad hair days sometimes but when you put one of these rag bands in--no more bad hair---cute hair! Yes, you do look like a Bohemian flower child but---hey what's worse, Bohemian flower child or---bad hair? Bad hair gets my vote!

I also doodle in the "closet of creation" at home. (look below) I love these Westwind graph pads. They are part of my supply list for Italic Calligraphy that starts November 2nd (shameless plug!) I like to watch my TV programs (I am a TV junkie) but I am very particular about my shows. Durning a commercial I run to the closet and add a doodle. It's good exercise too--running to the closet and I do a 1 or so minute doodle or some quick lettering. As you know, I am addicted to the doodle---I call it POWER doodling! POWER TO THE DOODLE!! It's cathartic.

And as you see I am also taking Monica Zuniga's online class, "Drawing Faces" with Pencil which I love. I love drawing eyes. And I love a pencil. It is about my favorite art tool.
Monica is good!

You are so funny. I jump at commercial and run wash a dish. I get it done by the time the program is over...so many commercials. But absolutely YES to power doodling!

I love your new necklaces...just darling. I think I am going to have to buy one soon. Are you going to offer them up until Xmas?? Love the headbands too. You are just so creative. I was so glad to see that you are taking Monica's class on drawing. I learned sooooo much from it. It is great to learn how to do each of the features and practice until you get them down! I love to just sketch faces and features in my drawing journal. Another good TV pastime!!! I love Sharons' words..."power doodling"...good one!!

The necklaces are fabulous and I adore those rag headbands. Do tell me you are selling them on etsy and that they will fit an adults fat head. They are wonderful. I like your power doodles, they look more like sitting and concentrating to get it just right. I can just see you jumping up and running and then running back again. Great exercise routine. :)

HI again Martha~Just wanted to let you know that I think Mysele is offering her class again after the first of the year. She is just such a wonderful person. I love her videos we are getting in her class. A natural born teacher and has a real way with words. I am learning so much....trying to get out of my uptight box and letting go.....learning how to paint and draw from our gut...It is great!

Thank you so much Martha for your visit and your offer to help in selecting calligraphy pens! I was at Michaels and got a little overwelmed!
Are you supplies for class available at Michaels or would I have to order them online? I'm just wondering, since the class starts soon if I'd be able to have everything to sign up for it.
