Good News!

 I will have a chance to get to a scanner today to um...well scan stuff!!  Among the goodies I hope to post later today:

1. Strange Walker [my Creature of the Week idea from conceptart.org.  I missed the deadline for posting, but I'm still proud of the picture.  Still needs a few tweaks but I want to get it up here!]

2.  Batch of Halloween Bookmarks!  [They're soooo cute!]

3.  Other finished bookmarks!

4.  A few new sketch pages,  Yes, I've actually been sketching!!

More to this effect later today! WOOT...I need coffee....

It has been lovely to be creatively active here lately in spite of all the work stuffs.  I've discovered I just have to take an hour in the evening to put aside work and just do some creative things, and that I can work on small steps towards the bigger goal.  It's been quite invigorating, but I guess its all part of learning how to transition from 17 years of a school schedule to a work schedule.  I feel like I'm finally getting to be me!

Kalin said something the other day that made me feel good too.  We were talking abstractly about when we get married and have kids and whatnot and he was talking about his friends mom who had always been a stay at home mother and was a little over protective and a little crazy and I said I wanted to stay at home with my children, but I didn't want to become a crazy mom like that with nothing better to do than worry about my kids and he said "No, you wouldn't be like that, you'd be a stay at home artist.  You'll have plenty to do and I'll make sure you can do it."

That made me feel better about that transition-though don't think I'm wanting it any time soon.  It's just nice to know that it will be like that when it does....it's going to be another weird transition when Kalin has a teaching job...but we'll cross that hurdle when we get there....time to oust the kitty from my lap and take a shower!

Why on earth are you awake and posting at 5 in the morning, you crazy girl?? Please tell me that's cuz your time/date/stamp/thing is screwy and not because you were actually awake before the sun came up.

Umm, yes something must be weird. I've actually been sleeping decently. I'll see if I can fix that...
