Was a dark day yesterday.
They predicted a chance of snow. I didn't see any snow all morning. Just rain. I went to bed in the afternoon. Woke up last night to wet and no white...so I assume it was rain or melted, if it did snow.
Started a free mandala drawing class yesterday that Serena posted about here. It's offered from a Ning website--which I joined for free.
Anyways, we had to print off a template and practice what she showed us in a video. I pulled out my printer cord...
...(Karma claimed it, of course)...
...printed off the template, gathered up the various materials...
...and turned this...
I think I might have gone a little crazy with the wonkiness. Oh well. It could look better after it is colored. I have a few more templates printed off and will continue to play tomorrow. We have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays for three weeks. Eventually we will be coloring a mandala on watercolor paper, but for now we are just playing with the geometry on computer paper with templates. I had figured on making small mandalas in my doodle book, but that might prove to be too small and the spiral binding might be in the way when drawing. I'll find out, I guess. I'm sure if I dig around I can find some larger watercolor paper. :)
I plan to begin washing clothes toward sunrise and to try to stay up later than 3pm today. I did get 8 hours of sleep yesterday, so that's a plus. I have Caroline coming to clean on Wednesday and Dagan & Leah Wednesday night. At least I think Dagan is coming. Not sure. He sometimes begs off if we are crafting or takes his own car. Leah and I will be working on Christmas cards, anyways. So, I need to try to get around the clock pronto, eh? ;)
During the night I've also been gathering samples of old handwritten letters and documents online to print off to use in trying some collage work...something else I haven't done. So I think I'll get back to that. Keeps me out of trouble--LOL! ;)
See you tomorrow!
Have a giggly day! :):)
