Day 265

The morning started early. It was one of those early mornings that I’ve forgotten because it was too long ago. I think I watched a whole heap of art videos on Youtube. I was hoping that I’d done French but when I checked in with Duolingo in the evening, I hadn’t. So I just finished the day with a pretty smooth French practice. Now, back to talking about my day.

Once hubby jumped off to work, I jumped into a workout. Working out when it’s humid isn’t my favourite thing. I still did it.

So I haven’t really done much ‘lettering’ in my art-ing yet. I’d watched a Youtube video on blending with sharpies and was inspired to try something of my own. I went with the word; Paris.

I then spent hours working on lettering for a Christmas card. I think I’ve got a design I like but I haven’t finished it yet. I also doodled!!!!!! I never really know where to start with doodling so I feel pretty proud.

I also popped over to Art for Kids Hub for one last Christmas inspired cartoon. I chose ‘How to Draw Kissing Mistletoe‘. Hubby is going to try doing one of the videos with me soon. It’s nice having people to art with.

It doesn’t really sound like a busy day but I was doing things constantly. These are the sorts of days I want more of in 2020. I’ve been thinking a lot about the ways to get organised for a much more productive year. That will start with a productive week of organising after Christmas.

Tomorrow is Christmas day. Hubby’s family live about 12 hours away from us, so we can’t see them. My only family is hubby and wifey. So, hubby and I are planning on a day of yummy food and relaxing. I’ll do some art-ing and he’ll ….. do whatever it is he does.

I hope you have a magical Christmas eve. Enjoy your Christmas festivities and stay safe.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.

  1. I feel the same way about 2020. I’m doing a huge overhaul on my house (one room a day) starting with my son’s room the day after Christmas. I figure once the house is sorted, I can take a day and work out a schedule for art, writing, fitness, and language learning (I’m learning American Sign Language). Best wishes for a productive new year!
