a little embarrassed...

at showing flaws in my sketching which I did late last night(especially the frog...yuck-and I sketched in ballpoint pen... NOT at all erasable) and misspellings too...funny what the brain can't correct before the detailed info reaches your hand and starts scribbling...

This was an idea that came to me at 12 mid-night last night...you know...after I had had a cat-nap for 20 minutes on the sofa...and thought...hmm, why not make an alphabet poster with all the animals I draw???
SO...this is the beginning of a project which I will be starting in February...one animal a day...and I will make limited edition prints from the originals...but will ALSO be selling the originals DAILY on Etsy...they will be going REALLY cheap...so watch out for the SALE!
I'm excited...it'll be a fun project.

I'll create them individually daily, then make a poster to commemorate the project.

JUST finished a bowl of warm oatmeal with dates and half a banana...also JUST finished my first cup of Tea...which had been re-heated 3 X...probably NOT a very healthy decision...could have made another cup I suppose!
It's baffling...I usually drink Earl Grey Tea,(had forgotten my stash of EG Tea in the UK...but remembered the English Breakfast)...I swear, the EB cools down SO much quicker than the EG...anyone else found this?

So...back to my 2010 list...which has many 2009 items on it which I had to bring over to this year...
I will post it later...it REALLY won't fit in this post(honestly, trust me...it's LONG...perhaps even a little overwhelming).

I am feeling jaded...or could it be jet-lagged? How many days can it take to re-adjust back to normal?

ALL I know is that it's FREEZING here today....-18...ouch...chilli!

How is it in your neck of the woods?
