If we were having coffee, I think I’d have a smoothie because I’ve already reached my caffeine limit for today! I needed it to get me through the mountain of cleaning.
Today is Mother’s Day, so if you’re a mum, I hope you’re having a lovely day. My mum, my daughter and I celebrated it yesterday, we went shopping and had lunch together, it was really lovely. I made a comic for my Mum’s card and had it printed on a mug too. it looked so cool! I was so happy with the way it turned out, and my Mum really loved it.
I’ve had a busy week, I’ve been working hard and making the effort to go outside. I usually get a really high amount of anxiety whenever I have to go anywhere, so I’m trying to work through it. I have been quite successful actually, and am really quite proud of myself. I have been attending art classes on a Wednesday, and actually, whilst drawing, I totally forgot I was in a strange place and felt really comfortable in the situation. This hasn’t happened to me before! All the people there seemed lovely, and I ended up sketching a daffodil and an eye.
My little one has also been arty this week. On Friday we had an art and craft night, and she painted Jupiter and two cute little astronauts. When she’s finished it, I’ll have to show you, it’s so awesome! She’s so talented! She bought me a lovely card for Mother’s Day, and a little teddy ornament and she also made me two cards in school.
I started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition this week. So far, I’m really enjoying it, and I can’t wait to do some Dragon Age art. I called my character Shepard (Because of Mass Effect), and made her look pretty Shepard-like. I’m convinced Bioware are geniuses. There is not another game developer out there that make stories that I get so invested in. V from Verbal Spew was one of the people that convinced me to get it. She’s recently written a post about Dragon Age, and I highly recommend you read it and give her a follow if you aren’t already! Her blog is awesome!
I’m really enjoying getting back into The Walking Dead. I just hate waiting a whole week to watch another episode. It’s definitely my favourite TV series. I’ve also been binge watching Orphan Black, I’ve seen the episodes before, but it’s amazing what you pick up when you binge watch, and I’m all about the detail!
I’m STILL working on that art piece I was talking about last week, but what with Mother’s Day I made drawing my Mum’s card the priority.
Anyway, I have so much ironing to do, school uniforms and the like, so I’d better get back to it. I hope you’re having an awesome weekend, and I hope you have a great Mother’s Day.
