A morning alone

Ryan had to play guitar for both church services this morning, so I've been home alone (well, Jasper is here) for a while, which gave me time to play around with the mac. I probably should have been working on my website, but for some reason I can't bring myself to even start. I think its just one of those things that I know will probably take a good chunk of time to get done and I just don't want to sit here that long working on something that like 5 people will look at, ya know? I wish getting art out into the open where people, people I'm not related to or friends with, can see it was a bit easier. I feel like all the other artist I find online did it so easily, and here I am in my tiny apartment with no money to really spend on this kind of stuff and I feel stuck. There's so much I want to be able to do, and I just can't with what we have right now. I want a printmaking studio so bad...but where exactly would I get the money for that? Or the space?

We've been looking at empty lots of land in the area, hoping to be able to buy one once our lease is up in June. That way we could just get a prefab house put on the empty land. It seems to be a win-win situation. Prefab homes are customizable to some extent and they're much cheaper than having a house built from scratch. And we could find land with enough room for a yard, and trees (to keep Ryan happy), plus we wouldn't have to worry about taking the dog outside in the dark/rain/snow we could just open the back door and let him go by himself. Maybe if this works out I could have my printmaking studio by July or August....but I'm not holding my breath, right now it all seems a little too good to be true, though I would LOVE it if we can actually make this happen.

Here's what I've been up to this morning...

And now, I'm am off to play Wii Fit Plus, I have to work on my snowball fighting skills so Ryan doesn't cream me 16-4 again...

I didn't get to post yesterday, so I will have to post 2 pictures today to make up for it. Here's what I had for yesterday.

Yes, the top of the paper does say "doodle pad for young Schwenkies" I got bored during the Christmas Eve serivice...

And here is the picture for today

Ryan got me a Wii Fit Plus for Christmas and dogs can use it too! So this is a picture of Jasper's mii, super cute right?

Alright, so my latest attempt at keeping up with this blog has been pretty pathetic, however I have a new idea. I'm going to try to post a picture a day, maybe that will help me remember to post and not worry about what to post about.

In other news, I stumbled onto this little etsy page the other day arian.etsy.com. Super cute art, super cute artist. She also has a blog, which I of course read compulsively until I ran out of posts to read. Which inspired me to start drawing again, something I haven't done since before college. For some reason being an art major really made me not want to draw anymore; maybe because it became something I had to do instead of something I wanted to do? I don't know.

Anyway, if you check out Arian's etsy page you'll be able to see how much her art actually did inspire some of the stuff I've been doing in the past few days. Here's what I did tonight.
