June 13, 2017


It didn't take long before my little helper got tired and had to have a lie-down. Still, it was lovely to have her as company at work! Monday's are very focused on clients and today I also conducted an interview for the podcast. It was a very productive day so a little helper was a treat!


The Readorama readathon is back! I thought they weren't having another round until August but hey, that's okay with me. I was more than happy to put together a reading list of 7 books to meet their 7 challenges. One of my library holds hasn't come in yet, but I might just buy it instead. Day 1 was a little slow, but that is likely because I picked a harder text of Icelandic sagas. Heh. I hope I read more Day 2 but mostly I want to have fun. Here's hoping I do!


Got back to art class and OMG, love gouache paint! Blew my mind away with making colours for the colour week like you can make blue?! Painting did not go as great. I am still having issues with being too literal but my head was hurting by the end of class so I will blame the headache.

Any little bit of help Shibumi can offer I am sure is a big help in the studio! I just love this photo and that story Jamie.

Wow, another readathon Shannon, that's awesome! Yes to having fun. :)

Oh my goodness gracious, that is such a precious photo Jamie! Lil Shibumi looks like she is *very* relaxed on the desk, it's nice to see you have a good little helper for a full day!

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed using gouache, Suzie! I think it looks like you did a great job! Sorry to hear you got a headache though, that's not what class if for!
