Blogging 101, Video

Rawwwr, Go me!

Hello everyone. I just wanted to say thank you so much for your comments on my last post. Getting deep dark stuff out there is difficult, but sometimes necessary if you want to become stronger and move on. I appreciated all the comments and support, I really did – and it spurred me on to actually do a brief intro video on YouTube (1.41 mins, haha!). I’m really pleased that I did it now, to be honest. Wanna see? So yes….that’s all I have for the moment. I’m painting a picture (watercolour doodle type thing) for my sewing area just now, so I shall show that here once I’m finished. Cheery bye for now!

Oh…..

Well it seems that I have been very remiss in my posting here, despite the fact that I got a new laptop! Lemme explain….

I tried to make a video for YouTube, because I thought that chatting on screen would make me oh-so confident (because really I am incredibly shy and introverted), so I made it, and made a thumbnail like this, which I thought was terribly clever!

YT Thumbnail Papercraft

Then I thought it was really cheesy and horrible and nobody would watch someone playing with scrap paper, and so I deleted it. Even that gleeful look on my face makes me cringe, haha!

So! Having decided that I wasn’t going to be a YouTube star after all, I cleared up all my arty crafty stuff and fixed up my room for making a study of sorts (being a student in August an’ all), then I got all dismayed at not being able to do arty stuff, retrieved all my  materials, and proceeded to organise them into boxes *properly*.

So that’s where I’m at right now. Organising and sorting. I’m thinking I can actually combine the crafting stuff with student life, because I can make stationery, folders, planners, and notebooks! So its a win win all round! Go me and my cheesy grin! 🙂

Blogging 101

Hello and update

I’m still here…..I just haven’t been able to post anything, due to…..well let me start at the beginning.

Son returned from his worldly travels. He got himself a place to stay but didn’t like it, so came to stay here, with us. This was all rather sudden and unexpected, so basically I had to turn daughters room into his room, because his room is the Room of Doom (aka my workspace/studio/haven of peace and quiet) So changing daughters room involved laying a brand new floor,(which I did ALL by myself) and refurnishing the place. Plus turfing the remainder of her stuff into the Room of Doom. And its a LOT of stuff.

I can’t see the floor. Of my  doomroom, I mean.

Which means I can’t get creative.

Which means I’m getting a little cranky.

However, I have managed to squeeze in a little bit of space to paint some large carpet tubes. These are made of cardboard (which I hacked into pieces with a kitchen breadknife, because I can’t locate my hacksaw just now…..)

So I will hopefully have something to show tomorrow – I have an art crush on the colourful  folk art of Mexico Google image link so I’m thinking if I painted the tubes like this, and squeezed them into my rescued wire wine rack (Google Image), I could have a place for storing brushes and pencils etc instead of using pencil cases.

So big hugs to you all – and hello to new followers. I promise I’ll be back with some colourful show and tells! 🙂
