Hello my fellow peeps,
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? My apologies for my sudden and quiet absence.
Things have been a little odd and a little off with me lately. I’ve had more depressive days these past couple of ones, and I’ve been generally unmotivated or tired and napping a few times during the day. I’ve made some progress in other areas though, I did some artwork today and have been reading fanfiction as of late, which has kept me in a good mood. I’ve also gotten some more stationary recently from Michael’s this time, so that’s snazzy. And I’ve been cleaning up and reorganizing a corner of my room since I’ll be getting my first ever desk this coming weekend! And then a snazzy purple chair on Monday, so that I can finally have some desk space to use my laptop on and do homework and such, rather than just on my bed, where I’ve been at for years now.
This evening I watched Avengers again with my Mom downstairs in the living room, because I heard Tony Stark’s voice 😉 on the TV while I was coincidentally reading about him in a fanfic. Hehe. So I sauntered my way down the steps and onto the couch and watched the rest of the movie with her for a good hour and a half.
My laptop and its memory had been acting up before then so it was a well timed break.
Now, I’m just using one site at a time, although this is the only tab I have open right now to be working in.
So, because it’s been a while, let me show you all some of the stuffs I’ve been up to, while I keep on chatting with you. 🙂
This is a scrapbook page I did last Friday on Scrapbooking day. 🙂 It features 4 coloring sheets that eventually I shall one day complete, and is a snazzy little before image shot until I complete them later on 🙂 Then I just added some washi-tape and “Coloring” and “fun” repeated as well as “creative” spelt out with construction paper 😀
Now that I see this again, that floral print is probably the reason why I want to do a floral gift art now. XD
The above is a slide show of the “Shooting Star” sunset or sunrise (depending on your view) IOS I did early last Wednesday, maybe? Yep, Wed. 🙂 I went up to campus that day and for therapy, and this is how the piece turned out, from start to finish! 😀
I made a couple of new bracelets some time last week, as well. Here are the shots of those:
Features a gem green center, 3 green, 3 yellow, 3 green then 4 randomized colors.
Features a dark black and purple glittered bead, 1 silver rectangle, 2 white, 1 red, 2 white, silver, then three gold and 2 icy blues.
This is a close up of the sparkles inside. And yes, I still have yet to change my nail polish 😉
Today, I did a watercolor vent work.
Close up of the ‘drainage’ happening from the tree into the color. Or the color from/into the tree. Depends on your perspective 😉
This piece, as you can see, is called:
I find I just cannot do vent art pieces, they keep me in the clutches of the depression or the OCD, so I just HAVE to add my charm to them, by way of LE COLOR. So I added the colorful background and it helped to brighten up the piece for me, which was helpful and helped my mood.
This idea reminds me of a question on the OCD-I survey:
When I want to feel MORE positive emotion, I change the way I’m thinking.
When I want to feel LESS negative emotion, I change the way I’m thinking.
So far in these past two days, letting myself simmer in depression hasn’t been all that effective or helpful to get me out of it.
Buying some cute things that I can appreciate when I’m out of this funk has been good though. If not for my bank account then for some temporary relief.
I saw these two flamingo designed items, a pen and some tissues, in Michael’s and they honestly made me tear up because they reminded me of such a good blogger friend on here. ❤ ❤ ❤ In that moment, I genuinely, really felt her presence, her soul with me. It was very comforting.
Along with the blog, I’ve also been neglecting finishing my reading books to review. Which I direly need to get to.
for now, I think this is as much as I will say in this post. There is more, but I don’t want to get into it now to taint this evening to follow me tomorrow like yesterday did. Hopefully I can get some more work done tomorrow and show you guys some nice new nail art done. 🙂 I could really go for a slushie right now….
Until tomorrow, my friends.
Take care & Stay safe. ❤ ❤ ❤
