Catching up

I'm back from Ohio where I got to meet our twin 5 week old granddaughters and to play with the 2 year old big brother. I had visions of drawing the sweet little ones, but the best I could do was a couple of minutes drawing Loretta, one of the two hairless cats who was sitting on my lap. I mean, the breakfast dishes didn't get done until 4:30 pm. The parents are doing well, but what a lot of work.


Do you have a clue how many EDM postings are done in two weeks? It does take a while to catch up on the conversation and all your creative pieces-a task that I'm happy to do!

I'm having some challenges with Blogspot. I press to download pictures and they don't appear my blog. When I was in Ohio I saw three of the same picture on my blog using my son's computer. Here at home there was only one. I just tried to add a couple of pages from my Sketchbook Journal and they do not appear here. Any help would be appreciated.

Must have been a wonderful 2 weeks - hopefully you took photos and can sketch them more easily in the quiet of your home.

I recently went through two weeks of not checking email...believe me, I do know!! It took me three days to catch up and I was putting in a lot of effort!

Love your circles. That is in your lines and grids sketchbook, correct? Really is an interesting pattern! Oh, and I knew your sketch was of a hairless cat right away! Well done!

For me time away always brings hours in front of computer catching up my blogger friends on return. Enjoy all the fab work.

The cat's lovely.

Re: blogger try clearing your cache on your computer, it may be showing you old pages.

Wow! twins! I like your line drawing over the spattery paper. As for your blogspot issues I'd recommend migrating to wordpress - I moved there because I got fed up with blogger and it was far better - better even than my Typepad blog which I now pay for! - at least in some respects.

I bet the twins are really hard work but so lovely to hold!

Congratulations on the addition of twins to your family! And I love the background of your hairless cat sketch. It really sets off your linework.

Nice designs and congratulations with the twins! ^^ Twins are such fun in the family

How happy you must be to see your new grandchildren! No wonder you had little time for sketching.
The line drawing is great - says all it needs to say and with such confident lines.

Nice sketches. I understand having all the good intentions of sketching and the not being able to. I knew the first sketch was of a cat. And I really like your circles. Something about circles is so soothing.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I know what you mean about the volume of posts - I usually can only get to EDM emails about once a week, and there sure can be a lot! It's great for inspiration though. Your cat sketch and journal page are terrific!
