drawing and writing

I've been doing alot of drawing and illustrating quotes and
phrases this week.
I have posted a few here!

Instagram has become a favorite of mine and I have to admit

I'm a bit addicted.
I am sure that will pass though, first it was Facebook,  then
Twitter, some Flickr, Tumblr, it
goes on and on and I am sure there will be something new.
This is how it looked like when I posted on Instagram, there are filters to modify the way it appears.
This is a filter I like and use often.
 Its amazing how things just keep on changing.


 I find that I get excited and exhausted by it all.
I try to keep up but its impossible. LOL!
Well I am off to the art store, I have this sudden

design to make a book.

I have the thread for binding, etc. I need paper

 and a few other things to make it happen.

I found a good video
on YouTube and will try it out.
I may or may not post what I create,

 LOL, it depends on how good it comes out.
Happy Saturday:)

I love your art!! The quotes and sketches are awesome and beautifully illustrated! I've been feeling a little overwhelmed myself of late with all the challenges I've taken on plus chaos in my personal life. I don't get much time to visit my fave blogs but I'm trying to grab moments for that when I can.

Have a fabulous weekend! xo
