Hi guys! How was your day? Today I had a Zoom chat with my mom for a couple of hours, then worked on both commercial and non-commercial commissions.
Later I relaxed working on my journal while watching Arthur. It was a very rainy day, I enjoyed listening to the rain while I worked.
In the late afternoon the rain stopped, and I caught this squirrel lounging like this on the fence. Looks uncomfortable but it was so relaxed. Watched it getting in and out of this position twice, doing a happy stretch once. Adorable!
In the evening I fed the snails as their “day” began:
Hello everyone. I hope you all had a nice day. Christopher and I had our date night yesterday, and we enjoyed playing with this I Spy book. Christopher bought it for us to play together after @maplesadventures_ reminded him of them. It was really fun!
Today, Turrón arrived, and she’s even more beautiful than I hoped!
I know, I know… too many bears recently… I won’t lie, I’ve done a fair amount of retail therapy, I feel like absolute garbage, I miss my friends, my mom, my sis in law, my mom in law. I miss the park, I miss the coffee shop and the stores I frequent on my walks. I’ve slowly managed to put out of my mind the canceled/postponed things like the musical, the Tampa trip, the cruise, and if I’m honest, very likely Megaplex as well, I mean, I can hope, but a part of me doesn’t want to hope for anything for this year. It’s less painful that way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m sure I’ll regain a sense of normalcy soon, I’m very adaptable, but all of this kinda happened right when a particularly brutal PMS began, and now I’m just waiting for my cramps to come so I can have peace again, then my mood will stabilize and my headaches will go away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve had a few bad art days (I still call them that despite finishing at least one commission a day, it just doesn’t feel like enough progress). I’m the queen of “If you’re a professional you don’t wait for inspiration” and I stand by this still. But it’s been a tough couple of weeks, so if you’re waiting for stuff from me, be it personal commissions, trades or commercial work, please know it’s coming, just a tad slower than usual. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The good thing is, these slumps always precede massive output, at least for me, regardless of what caused them. So be prepared for that!
Anyway, something really wonderful about Turrón is that her ears are a little poseable! I just love her so much. I can’t wait to take my new bears on outings.
Meanwhile… sad little bears (and kittens and donkeys) just want to go outside again. 💔 From left to right, Coffee Cake, Fish ‘n Chips, Franklin, and Bizcocho.
To cheer up, I ordered mini donuts from @minidonutworld! Loved them!! Perfect PMS treat 👌 Turrón liked them too!
They were so, so cute!! 🍩💕✨🌈 And I have five left for tomorrow.
