Illustrations coming to life

One thing I love LOVE about sketching is adding color.  To me, this where each sketch/character comes to life.  I've got alot going on behind the scenes but doing everything possible to continue making time for creating whimsical illustrations to put a smile on the faces of those around me.

What do you do to keep your creativity flowing amidst a hectic life schedule?  :)

  4. Hi! It's great to hear from you again! Your artwork is beautiful! My creativity is flowing Constantly! Right now I have two or three aghans in the works, knitting house shoes and I have two cross stitch projects going! That isn't all, but what has my heart right now. I throw myself into creating and don't spend near enough time on house keeping:( Have a nice day! Twyla

    1. So glad to have you stop by! I've missed you and feel bad I get around to your page as well as others so little right now with being in school. I would LOVE to spend more time in creating and leave my house chores behind. Tee hee :)

  5. Oh, she is very sweet Alexandra. My wee one loves his swing, it's his stress buster (he is autistic).
    I feel lost if I don't get to create something every day. Whatever it is :o)
