I am still working on drawing up the new sets for the calendar project. I spent the majority of the day doing as much and I am making good progress. Hopefully, I can finish up today and then tomorrow will be a day of cutting the pieces out and then on to writing the instructions. I made a little sample picture to show you:
Today is just one of those days that I am short on words. I don’t know if that is a bad thing, or a good thing. I am quite focused on completing this assignment and as a result, there is nothing exciting or fascinating other than the small progress picture that I have shown you. Some days are just like that.
For those of you who are used to reading with your coffee in the morning, I have something for you. A very talented friend of mine who is a painter and teacher showed this really cool puzzle program on her Facebook page yesterday. I am not one who is big on computer games, but I found myself fascinated with this site and I made some of my paintings into puzzles. It is totally free and you can use any picture you have and use many different configurations and difficulty levels. If you make an account with them, it saves your work so you can come back to it at any time and finish. Great for when you have only a couple of minutes here and there to relax. And no lost pieces!! :) I must admit that Keith even got hooked and did one of my puzzles with me, and then later I saw him doing his own. I think some monsters were created!
In any case, I painted this bear on wood so it kind of fits. Have fun playing!
I was thinking that I could put one of these on my site on the Free Stuff page and have a picture of one of the new patterns. I think that would be quite a fun way to advertise the new items to people. Whatcha think??
I hope you have a great Wednesday today. It appears our two days of winter is over and we are now into muddy spring-like weather. I think I have to psych myself up to enjoy spring and summer as much as I do fall and winter.
Besides, I am drawing shells and beaches. I can always dream of that day last summer when I brought my office to the ocean. There. That’s better!
Have a wonderful day! Enjoy the puzzle!
