By Anne - February 17, 2017

I didn't get  as much done today as I planned to. All of the appointments I'd had scheduled at the salon rescheduled to different days (it's a nail tech's life), so instead of going in to work to clean and try to look busy, I took the day off to get some things done at home and practice lettering.

I couldn't find the motivation to do much of anything though. I'm feeling the February blahs, and my creativity is lacking, so I caught up on my Hulu watchlist instead.

I think I mentioned that I have a small pack of scrap paper that I've been keeping at the salon to practice between clients. I've gotten bored with the limited selection in the pack, so I put together a larger pack with a lot of variety. There are some bookmarks and cards in there, along with different types of papers and cardstocks. Hopefully it will give me some more options to make pretty things when I have a free moment.

Most of the techs at the salon do something creative in their spare time. So I told them if they want to dip into my stash, they're welcome to it. I still have enough papers and supplies in my basement to open a papercrafting store, stashed there from my old stamping hobby, so it's not like I can't easily replenish my stock.

#ShowMeYourDrills Thursday Week 1
I did get my drills done for today, so I did do a little lettering. My work with the brush pen is still a solid 'Meh' for me. I'm keeping at it though. Tomorrow's drills are ovals, and they intimidate me, so I'm not really looking forward to it.

I saw a challenge a few days ago to write one letter one-hundred different ways. That seemed like a lot to me though, so I thought maybe I'd try one letter twenty different ways instead. I managed to write out the letter A twenty-five different ways, so I overshot my goal, but I did have to use google to give me some ideas for different ways to write it. I may try another twenty tomorrow tonight. I'll have to wait and see what kind of mood I'm in.

That's it for me today, I'll see you tomorrow!
