Apparently one way I deal with such things is to organize and rearrange. That has been the main focus this past week- rearranging and organizing a few of the rooms that we call home. The area needing the most attention was our craft zone. It was oozing into areas that were not designated as crafty zones, causing a major mess.
Now that I know we will be here another 7-9 months, I decided it REALLY needed to be cleaned, rearranged and organized.
Which meant that artsy craftsy stuff was put on hold.
Which means Mama has been a cranky girl.
Last night I told hubby that today would be a crafty day. He was fine with it, he doesn't like the cranky version of me anymore than anyone else.
With no particular creative endeavor in mind, I was happy to see this post from one of my favorite blogs in my blog roll. Emma and I both love all of Kira's work over on "Oops, I Craft My Pants." How can you NOT love a website with such an awesome name!
Kira has an awesome video tutorial of how to do a watercolor (her example of a rooster is super cute).
Emma and I have played with watercolors a bit, but I have never really watched someone else use them. I mean, really, I suppose there isn't a wrong way to use watercolors, but Kira showed us a better way. And I like this better way, well, better :0)
Enough blabbing. Here is the creative exploration that Kira inspired.
