While I'm healing quite well, I am still home much of the time. One of the things I'm doing is going through old craft magazines to tear out the few articles I really want to hang onto and then to discard or donate the magazines.
In one of my jewelry magazines, I saw some cute earrings made with acrylic flower beads. I decided that I should I try to use up my little stash of such beads.
The results are fun, I think, but I didn't use up as many beads as I'd hoped. So many beads, so little time.
I did go into work for part of the day on Monday. It was a staff day, so it wasn't too stressful. On Sunday I was able to make my Urban Sketching group at a cute coffee shop in an old train depot.
For once, I finished it in the allotted two-hour time. Usually I have to do the finishing touches at home. I've switched from using Derwent Inktense pencils for the color to watercolor, and I do like the results. Watercolors are more flexible, at least for me.
This is the first formal day of summer vacation, and I have to say that it feels good!
