The Specials

I'm a funky mood this morning. It's my DH's 50th birthday - woohoo!

Anyhow, I got my Dover sample email this morning and the matchbook clipart appealed to me - especially the after dinner specials. I changed it to read "my", instead of "our". Here is the result of my wacky idea - click on the pic for a larger view:

Doodling

Okay, I'm debating about taking some lettering and/or doodling classes from a fellow member on my journaling group. I love her stuff - here's her blog if you want to check it out.

Anyhow, she was offering a free sample for each of her two classes - doodles and lettering. I was wondering if I could apply the concept to doodling on the computer, especially using Illustrator, as I've been dabbling a bit of late - so I gave it a go and this is my paltry attempt - LOL - this is no reflection whatsoever on Nicolette's classes, nor her abilty, but it does say lots about me.

Am I stupid, or what?

Okay, I was wondering why I had no comments here (I mean, the stuff isn't THAT bad - LOL) and then I see that I do - so, I wonder why I have not been notified of them - well duh - I go and check my settings and see that I haven't put in an email address to have the comments sent to me - talk about stupid!

Now, I will make a greater effort here - I really will - I'm such a slacker sometimes - too busy with my design work et al of late to do anything just for me (well, I like the designing, I do but it's not 'art' now, is it?)

Hmm - what else? Nothing else - for the moment :)

Oh, I think I will have a little subscribe thing here - yeah, that's a good idea, isn't it?
