Storytelling week!

Last week, I was organizing events for other people’s fun.

I had fun, too, of course but when you have to remember all the details, it’s hard to really sink into what you’re doing.

This week, though, I’m telling stories at two different festivals and I’ll have to do is show up and tell.

I don’t have to figure anything out.

I don’t have to remember any details.

I don’t have to make sure we have supplies.

I just have to tell stories.

I’m really looking forward to it!

Artsy Fun All Week!

This week I taught a creativity workshop, took a drawing workshop and a Zine workshop, and I told a story on stage at a public event.

Today, I’m going to an ‘Art Crawl’ where people can drop by our organization’s table to try a couple of activities.

I just need to add some writing to my day today and this will be a perfectly creative week.

Drawing for Fun

Well, truth be told, most of the drawing I do is for fun but this is a little different.

A good friend of mine bought us both a copy of Johanna Basford’s 30 Days of Creativity so we could work on it together.

So I get the fun of drawing from prompts AND the fun of working on this at the same time as my friend.

Giving my brain a break

My brain is being a bit of a jerk today so I spent a bit of time listening to an audiobook and drawing and colouring this.

It helped a bit.
