~ we say goodbye to Halloween and “hello” to the holiday season with Franklin movies [halloween | Christmas Gift | Magic Christmas] [Franklin books are classics in our house]
~ Matthew and I spend several early mornings talking about sketching and sketches underway, watercolor pencils, and more
~ I “wow” him with news that pencils (potentially) get “all used up”
~ we do a give-and-take drawing together – one line at a time, a la a suggestion in Danny Gregory‘s The Creative License
~ thoughts on the sketchbook versus standalone works
~ the beauty of watercolor pencils for this creative mom (and anyone on the go – especially for visual journaling)
~ I realize I really need more colors!
~ comments from listeners about Journal: The Short Life and Mysterious Death of Amy Zoe Mason [Marti’s blog | Rosemary’s blog entry | Molly’s blog | Craft Borg podcast | Journal site]
~ I discover the Griffin and Sabine saga (all 6 volumes) – and you should, too!
~ I pick up some Barbara Hodgson
~ Mrs. Beeton’s, my brother wants beanies, the Halfdome hat, still itching to knit Fetching, and an update on the holiday lace
~ and more… (show length: 53 min)
