I feel like I’m cheating because I have posted this before. But it’s so perfect for asleep…… I just had to post it again……
I used to stalk the illustration Friday site for a long time before I actually posted anything, marvelling at everyone’s excellent work. Eventually I plucked up courage and I think this may have been one of my first posts. So maybe no one will remember.
While I’m at it I have a few others to post. Not really for illustration friday, but one was a second safari picture I did of the same elephant from last week. I couldn’t really commit to one design ( what’s new) so I did both.
Hmm, maybe that bird looks a little sleepy. I’m not sure if the print is too harsh on the elephant!
And last but not least a girl I’ve been working on from an art class I took with Christy Tomlinson online. I’m really enjoying the pink and orange. I’ve had so much fun and now I’m ready to explore with a whole bunch of new tools under my belt. So many ideas, so little time. You know how it is. I just have to remember to write the ideas down as they pop into my head.
I’m sitting here, ready for bed. I’m so tired but I had to go to an important soccer meeting which didn’t end until 11,20. I’m so tired. Wahhh. However just before i went a croissant set alight in my toaster oven. Thank god I alwyas tell the kids not to cook and definitely nt to use that when I’m out. (now they know i wasn;t just nagging. My house still smells of smoke. The stupid fire extinguisher didnt work…
So as the flames grew I managed to unplug the thing, and with my oven mitts i put the firey toaster oven with the door shut thank goodness but it was starting to melt) in my pampered chef big pizza stone and tried not to trip over the dogs as I made my way to the garden, and there we doused it with water. A little scary. My house stinks of smoke. It’s all in the back of my throat . Yuk. I was a little shaky afterwards… but we were lucky. Lucky I was in the room , lucky I was home, Lucky in so many ways. ( my lovely In-laws house burnt down a few years ago. They were in it at the time, but they were so lucky too.)
