"Dots Game" Revisited

You know the old Dots game right? My husband and I have used my gridded notebooks to play it, to pass time waiting for our food to arive at resturants. Today I was with my daughter and pulled out my doodle book and was going to pass time waiting for a parade to start. I decided to bring out the colored pens and use the dots game concept for her and I to "play" filling in my doodles...

It did its job, few minutes passed and time for parade. 

Later on this evening my husband took me out to dinner, so we brought out the journal and started working on our own (leaving my daughters and mine for us to bond over again ;-) 

So here we go, adult coloring trend into a taking turns creative game.

Unofficial Again

Every once in a while I'll check my "Time Hop" first thing waking up. This morning was one of those days. What I found was something I was expecting, yet it hit me right in the feels when I saw it in black and white. 

It was 5 years ago today that I registered LMD Studio as a "Doing Business As" in my state. It is a 5 year registration, therefore it has now officially expired. 

I really never had a business to begin with. I had intentions. I had aspirations. I had ideas (many many ideas). What I was lacking was motivation and a spine! 

I had a few projects, I just never got paid. Some were donated services that was intended as free work from the beginning. There were a couple of projects that I did and got completely shafted. 

Honestly though, not having a DBA doesn't mean it's all over. It just means that I will need to make some name changes. 

Hmm, guess some decision making is in order. 

Until next time, I'm officially unofficial.

Half Full?

It's the second tangent: "Half Full" in and her "Tangents and Tactics" series.

This was a pretty quick and simple exploration of the full/empty debat. I've always been a "half full" kinda girl, but see my unfinished projects as a "half empty". So I guess it's safe to say I'm only optimistic with outward perception things, when it comes with my self-perception I'm pretty pessimistic. Makes's nice to have a new exercise put it in these terms for me. 

I guess knowing IS "half the battle". Half won, or half lost...That, my friends, is one for another day.

I've been feeling extremely stagnant in my creative life. Working full-time in retail may have something to do with it. Although I was pretty blocked when I had all the time in the world too. 

The other day I stumbled on and her "Tangents and Tactics" series. I was fortunate to catch this challenge series in it's beginning (usually I'm a day late and dollar short). 

Tangent #1 "Starburst" [wip]

I'm doing this in my altered book that I started 8 years ago...more on that to come :-).

Good to be back~Laura

Bridging the Gap

I know, I know it's been a crazy long time since I've posted on my blog. Lets chalk it all up to...

Art, Creativity and the Pursuit of Perfection. 

I've been pursuing perfection to the point of obliterating any hope of art and creativity. Know the feels, bro?

This month has brought some changes. First of all, mamma got her a J.O.B. A part-time cashier position and an AMAZING privately owned, Faith based Arts, Crafts, and Home Decor retail store. I'm loving it!!!

Now that I have less time on my hands to just sit and think and over sit and way over-think, creativity and motivation are making their way back into my life.

I've been mulling over in my mind how to put all this in a post, and just today I found a recent QA from the fabulous Marie Forleo basically helps validate this decision in a way that takes away any shame I may have had. Check her out, yo!

Eye Finally See!

I created this image a few months ago. I felt like sharing it tonight after reading back through some of the quotes that resonated with me then, and still do now.

This weekend I participated in an amazing workshop that opened my eyes to the possibilities and opportunities that have been in me all along. I will share more about that adventure soon. For now, just enjoy my eye :)
