Have realised today that I am terrible at planning. I can see that because I'm so short of time (distractions of job, children, husband, la de dah) that I don't spend enough time designing or planning and tend to just launch into things and wing it! This is lovely and spontaneous but doesn't allow for development like it should.
Today I have resolved to play with my sketch book more (and I'm writing this down here to remind myself) and just doodle.
Tonight whilst number 1 child was researching "carbon-dioxide" amongst much huffing and puffing at the lap-top on the kitchen table and number 2 child was writing Xmas cards (more of an organised gal than I'll ever be) I got out a nice Pink Pig sketch book, two pens and messed. Very enjoyable. Actually a big chunk of Stilton, a glass of red wine and some Hovis biscuits were key here. I have to think how I can get this onto a textile but that will come.
So I'm writing this to remind myself to try to do one doodle every other day. I may end up an artist but will probably weigh 26 stone and go to Alcoholics Anonymous.
