-Some projects take more/less time than I expect.
-Changing plans while shopping for paint probably isn't a good idea.
-Maybe I should use a pattern when sewing something I've never made before.
-My scheduled walking time doesn't work with the rest of my schedule.
-I LOVE drawing and sketching
and using my Wacom and Illustrator A LOT more than I remembered.
And I remembered loving it tremendously.
WOOHOO, I'm so excited to show you my January goal results!
Sidenote, in no way are these my life goals, just small bits of my big picture.
I do have much bigger goals I'm working on, I choose to blog about these.
Let's move in a little closer, shall we?
Organized bins, drawers and containers...
hooks, folded fabric and shelves...
all make me
As you can see, plans changed a bit.
That's how life goes, right?
I reused/repurposed many of the items I already had.
Working with a budget,
I didn't do everything I imagined but I'm satisfied with the results.
I decided not to paint the exterior (although a creamy white would be beautiful)
because the exterior goes well with a large Ikea shelving unit we own.
Someday they'll both live in a studio Tyler and I have planned for the future.
If I could do it all over again I'd leave the shelves green and paint the interior wall light blue.
Who knows, maybe I'll still do that.
Headboard, dog food storage container or toybox for Sam.
I was really sick when I was supposed to be out scouring thrift stores.
Next week I'll have this narrowed down to one.
A postage stamp quilt.
You may have noticed this in my sewing cabinet,
my quilt became a sewing machine cover.
Maybe I can find a little mouse friend,
make him a bed out of cotton balls and cover him with this.
Then we can say it's a quilt.
Or a mouse cozy.
He wants to know what's up with all these weird seams.
It's cool Moosh, I'm alright with imperfection.
Dog bed using THIS tutorial and possibly an ironing board cover if the dog bed is quick.
I'm still working this out.
I'm outside everyday with the puppy making sure he gets exercise.
Plus, were still teaching him how to use a leash.
I'm getting exercise but I need to refigure my schedule for February
to make long mentally refreshing walks/jogs/runs fit in better with my routine.
Yes! I managed to complete each week for Illustration Friday.
I'm slowly getting better with Illustrator and loving every minute of it.
Soon I hope to be drawing just from my heart
and not thinking about how to use specific tools.
I also managed to work on some patterns I've had on hold for awhile
AND work on illustrations for a big project Tyler and I are doing together.
My February Goals remain the same.
Because the patterns and project are something I can't show just yet, I give you this:
January, wrapped up, over and out, end scene, from start to finish:
Week 1, January
Week 2, January
Week 3, January
Week 4, January
