Time to make something
I think we’ve turned a corner here at my house. After going more than six months sans afternoon naps, I think we are back on schedule. Creamie has taken naps 7 of the last 10 days. And still had a mostly normal bedtime. We’ve both had to wake up a lot earlier to make this miracle happen, but it is working.
And that means I now have time in the afternoons to myself. Which is amazing. I think this week I’m going to work on my art journals. I love doing it, but I haven’t made any new pages for a long time. For my birthday (almost six months ago!) my dad gave me a wide format Fuji Instax camera. And today I finally took it out of the box, loaded the film and took my first two pictures. I’ve been very inspired by Rachel’s Month of Instax project while her hubby was away with the military. And today after Creamie fell asleep I finally got the guts to push that button and watch the picture magically appear… with no editing possible. That is the part I am afraid of. And I know I have a lot to learn about the camera before I can take goodish pictures all the time. First thing I learned is that I need to aim high. Well, higher than I thought.
When I talked to Scott at lunch and told him Creamie was sleeping I promised not to spend her entire nap on the computer. So I’m off to get glue on my fingers and paint underneath my fingernails. I’m going to try and post a new journal page everyday this week. I don’t know that I can commit myself to a 30 day project yet, but I can totally do seven days. I think.
