8 points

it seems weird to be doing this at this time of the year,
but i am going back to the drawing board to
create an art space that is comfortable and cozy.
more importantly, get rid of some clutter. 

sounds more like spring cleaning i know, but
i feel i need to do this now before i can focus
on more creating and the holidays.

i am focusing more on slowing down as i create. 

these sketches are allowing me space to rest.

sketching like this is also keeping my heart warm.
i hope you are finding creativity that keeps your heart warm too.
happy thursday to you.
