Illustration Friday: Modify

It's been nearly two months since I've had time to participate in Illustration Friday. I never thought I'd miss a week, but hey, life happens.

I was overthinking today's word but then I 'modified' my thinking by keeping it simple. I've christened my new Moleskine from Marianne in the process!

Now please don't do this to your poodles at home.

Happy weekend everyone!!

Cactus Monday: Winter Hat

Apparantly this dufus thinks his wool sweater is itchy, but what about the prickly pear ear flaps on that stunning hat? Go figure!

Happy Cactus Monday!!

And to those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving this coming Thursday, may your blessings be many.

Cactus Doodle

Sometimes I just need to do a simple sketch to get the inspiration flowing for a new Moleskine! This one is for Cactus Monday, also posted on my studio lolo blog and Flickr.

Sleepy Cactus Monday

This isn't an official "Moleskine" entry. It's in another sketchbook that will have to share this blog. Anyway, I thought I'd do a sketch for Cactus Monday and while I was doing this I was struggling to stay awake. I've been working lots of hours and running around from home to home to take care of animals and I've been neglecting myself. For the first time EVER I actually fell asleep while drawing! See the "breath" sticker? That's where my pen went across the paper as I was fading and jarred myself awake! First I looked around to make sure there were no browsers in the studio watching me drool and draw, and then I let myself pack it in for the day and listen to my body, so I went home and took a nap! Sheesh. I guess this birthday was harder on me than I thought!

Happy Cactus Monday you guys!

IF : Poof !

Do you ever walk into a room and forget why the hell you walked in there?


Do you ever go to the store for ONE item and because you didn't write it on a piece of paper, you forget what ONE thing you were supposed to get?


Do you ever find yourself forgetting what you were talking about midway through a story?


Nope, never happens to me either.

Here's to middle age!

( and no, this is not supposed to be me or anyone else I know. Just some made-up scatterbrain!)

Happy Weekend everyone!
