EDM #97-Draw a Present I've Received

What a sweet present. I loved it when my kids would bring home things they made for us. Mike made this little clay bowl in grade school. Now they are young adults....time sure flies by!

EDM #89-Draw a Button

I have a lot of old buttons to choose from for a drawing like this. I love to attend auctions and estate sales and buy vintage buttons and trims. I really did do this drawing today....despite the date. Sometimes I still find myself putting the wrong year on checks too.

Setting up for success

I decided to go through the challenge list and label the next several pages....commit.

Everyday Matters #105

I need to cut out the procrastinating, and catch up on those challenges! If I just trim a few of these surfing minutes I'd be doing a lot more drawing. Then I would be getting more creative time and I would be a lot less snippy with everyone!

Baa Baa

These sheep belong to Sandy Ryan. She bought something from me on Etsy and through email, I discovered her wonderful business Homestead Farm. She and her husband have lots animals including sheep....and they sell the most beautiful wool from their sheep. Many of their animals are rescued animals and they are lucky to live out their lives at Homestead Farm. If you knit or craft with wool you will want to check out their site.

Yesterday, I started drawing from photos on their site. I started with Mina, the large sheep in the center. As I kept drawing more sheep, I think I started to get a better feel for capturing their sweet faces.

I think we'll call this one for Everyday Matters challenge #44:draw an animal.
