random thought of the day:

Does anybody who crafts (any crafty project, but I hear of it mostly with knitters) finish every gift before its meant to be given?

I'm just now starting to think of a gift for my sister. Her birthday was 2 weeks ago. (we werent able to celebrate until this weekend. I have 2 days.)

I'm thinking of just taking her to the fabric store and having her pick out fabrics for a smallish quilt.


September 4, 2009!

So I've been a little inactive lately. Sorry about that. Its been a crazy busy month or two around here.

On July 31st, after being induced, and then laboring for 6 hours, I gave birth to a healthy 7lb9oz baby boy. Needless to say, having two kids does not give a person much time for blogging.

I did, however, manage to pick up a pencil tonight, and inspired by the recent Harry Potter movie (which is so far my favorite, I was quite let down by the first few, but that is not the point here...) I drew the magical trio and two of their pets. (I ran out of time before I could finish Harry and draw Hedwig)

I'm not really sure why Hermione is sort of squat..she just came out that way. And you can really see how much work I need to do to draw animals better..poor Crookshanks. I like how Ron's body came out, but his head is wonky...(reminds self to read books again to refresh character descriptions)
