I think that everyone lives with a creative gremlin inside. Some of us just let ‘im out more regularly.
THE NEW YEAR IS UPON US… and perhaps you have been wanting to do some visual journal work for a long time. Pencils are a familiar tool and make this process less intimidating. If you are a first time doodler or a swanky sketcher: pencils are capable of endless visual effects.
NOBODY HAS ANY FREE TIME…and I am no exception. In every high flying life there are thresholds of spectacular tedium: the doctor’s office, the laundromat, the drive-thru, that hideous meeting once a month with stale softball-sized muffins. A small book and 3 colored pencils can redeem even those moments.
YOU NEED A GIFTIE…Binders will have some great bargain packages that are perfect for gifting and getting. If you aren’t happy how can you spread the good cheer? Get one for yourself and one for a special person. Make this person your arty buddy in 2014.
EVERYONE HAS SKILL…just not always the one we each want. So set about getting some new ones in 2014. Self education is the only kind with lasting value. Start on this journey so next year at this time, you have a LONG LONG list of supplies you are eager to explore in 2015. In a tough economy and in a world with a lot of problems, creative engagement is the ONE THING you can control.
IT IS A GREAT DAY IF YOU DESIGN IT THAT WAY.
