I thought Rich would have my latest video uploaded today, but we had a bad thunderstorm, and he lost everything he uploaded, so he promises that tomorrow the new video will be live.
I’m starting to get a little bit stir crazy from inactivity, so gave myself a project today. I took the journal I made for my new Touch 5 markers and put them in color order and then swatched each color in the journal. I think it will help me to know what colors to pull when I decide I want to do a certain color scheme. It’s definitely a lot easier than trying to determine what’s what when looking at the caps of the pens. Whoever came up with that plan didn’t have the eyes of an older lady, that’s for sure. (Older lady, ha, only physically…mentally I’m about twelve!)
The swatching took hours and I discovered I had two duplicate colors, so my 168 markers are really only 166, but still a good price for that many markers.
I really want to get out of this chair and start walking, but my ankle won’t hold my body weight, and I’m not sure how long it will take until it does. Tomorrow, I think I’ll have Rich roll the wheelchair into the craft room and see if it’s possible to play there. If it’s not, at least I’ll have given it a try and won’t feel like I do right now…like a total slug. I guess I could read, but I’m not really in the mood to do that either. Maybe I should try to move some of my partially completed projects into the room I’m currently occupying, and see if I can finish things that are in mid-production. Oh who am I kidding, if I can’t get the wheelchair to my desk, I’m not doing anything crafty…so let’s all cross our fingers that I can fit the chair through the doorway and past my hoarded mess to get to my desk.
