First day cross country skiing, rare photo of me upright. #serendipity This is something new for me ! I have been a lifelong sufferer from anxiety. Lately I have been learning more about Mindfulness, being kind to oneself, taking time out from the daily grind.

It is awesome - I just picked this padlock for the first time - what a rush... #callmefingers #lockpicking #64millionartists #newcareer #raking Day 11 New Year New You New watercolour paper pad! I've drawn my eyes from my eye test photos yesterday in tea and ink. Challenge 11 - New Year, New Me. As a Virgo + Ex Military, I’m literally stepping out of my comfort zone. Wearing odd socks is both liberating and weird ( but it might also wind up the weans. “Oh no ma Da is going senile” Tee Hee ) Technically yesterday’s challenge of #thejanuarychallenge making something from one piece of paper. Good old-fashioned snowflake making. But hopefully with a more intricate design #paper #papercrafts #papercutting #patternsinpaper #cuttingout Yesterday’s #TheJanuaryChallenge making something from just one piece of paper #64MillionArtists Day 11. I had just made myself my very first soy cappuccino when I read the challenge. And here it is. Oh and that's sugar free banana bread next to it. Apologies for yesterdays challenge #10. My hands arent working well just now. But Ive taken a picture of what I make from paper dots from a hole punch. Once assembled they're painted with acrylic paints. Ideal for ANY craft. I use mine in miniature gardens. I also make foxgloves . Hollyhocks and daffodils. Paper Party Day 10 #64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge @64M_Artists not a conscious decision unfortunately #do something different included keeping my knee supports on beyond the walk in PT. What a revelation #willdoitagain #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Something new.......my new jumper. Quite pleased with it - we went to the Orkneys earlier this year and I was admiring their Icelandic style jumpers but they were very expensive - this lookalikey was dirt cheap off Ebay - yes it's only acrylic - but I'm a poor artist - lol! - it links to the earlier challenge as this is just the sort of jumper I would have designed. Yeah, it's a bit lame as a response to the challenge - off out to an exhibition ....of knitted chuches, later so maybe I'll be in"SPIRE"d ! Decided to do gesture drawing for day 9.
