April 7, 2014


I love having Art Day on Sunday! We don't always manage it but when we do, it is such a treat. I thought it would be fun to take pics of my palette and Shannon's. I bet every time we look at them we'll be able to tell which one is mine and which is hers! This one's pretty atypical for me but still, i can recognize Shannon's colours on the right!


I was struck by a blank page blinkity-blink paralysis yesterday. I can't remember the last time that's happened. It took me a while to get over it, but decided to just make marks on the page and go from there! It didn't end up being my fave piece, but it was... a piece. So yay for that :)


Reg and I had an unusually social weekend. It was board game day at St. Mary's University again (I played that epic zombie game last year) and Reg and I got to check out lots of games like these freaky creatures from a very complex game called Mansions of Madness. Way too in-depth to play there but it was awesome checking it out. We played Zombie Dice with a really great group of people too and other games like a Walking Dead board game. We also went to see the new Captain America movie and visited with Reg's mom too. No work done on the house so it was a bit of a fun break.

I'm glad that making marks on the page made all the difference, Shannon! It was great to see what evolved - and will continue to evolve!

LOL, Suzie, those creatures are crazy! Sounds like an amazing day. What a rich experience - and a great break!

Yay for art day for both of you! I'm gathering Shannon's colours were on the right? Although they are quite pastel-y.

Oh that's tough Shannon but I'm proud of you for working through it and getting creative.

That was going to be my random pic Jamie, LOL, but I used it to symbolize the weekend instead.

Yep, that's Shannon's colours on the right :)

And lol, that would have been a great random picture too! You never know what you're going to see, eh?!
