is to actually type something up. I can't get back into the habit of posting journal entries unless I actually start posting journal entries. I'm a genius like that, I know.

First off, *hugs* to everyone who needs one. It seems like this holiday season is a hard one for most of you on my flist this year.

Second, well. I assume there should be a second since there was a first, but I'm not actually sure what this second will consist of. Oh! Mayhaps I shall mention the blizzard we just had! The lovely Winter Storm Draco (and doesn't that make for a horrible SOFAI and HP crossover) came by and dumped a ton of snow on us here. My work called and told me not to come in this morning, so I spent the day colouring and staring out the window at the various plows passing by. Also huddled in a sleeping bag and three layers of clothes because I'm weak like that.

Colouring is going surprisingly well! I downloaded a few new brushes today and worked on trying them out. I love them to bits already. (To the curious, I got the link from my Fantasy Artist mag and the brushes themselves from http://mike-nash.com/) Unfortunately, the combination of a more traditional painting style with the style I used just before resulted in what is, so far, 86 layers. My computer is not pleased with this, and I'm not 100% about it either, but practice makes perfect! So more painting and more painting to go.

Digressing a tad, work is going well. It's cheap retail work for an impatient company, but it's still work. I was scheduled for 46 hours this week, but with the blizzard and all, it'll drop some. Lots of hours at minimum wage equals okay pay. Not complaining.

Muse has been playing merry making around my head for a few days now, and I've been full of ideas at inappropriate times (because yes, brain, spawning an epic AU when I'm rushing around getting ready to run after a bus for work is clearly the best idea). Some of them have been written down, most haven't.
Hopefully the influx of new creativity will continue and I'll manage to remember to post things! (and get over my own self-confidence enough to actually post them and not just make a draft to sit in my folder for all eternity...)

Lastly, if I have your address, you can pretty much assume that you will be getting a winterthing from me. It just... will take a while. On top of shipping, I'm making things with a 21 day cure time and, like the wonderful art major-to-be I am, forgot to factor the cure time into my paint and mail time. Aren't I fabulously brilliant? So! Things. They will be coming, just... late.

And that shall be all for this I think. Signing off with the hopes I will remember to sign on with something/anything tomorrow!
