Last Monday was my first day at the new job, and it was mostly online training for the first couple of days. Wednesday was the first day of going right into the work system and going full speed ahead. And it went pretty good until I suddenly lost internet. The rest of the week was spent trying to figure out what happened. Long story short, we think a storm on Wednesday somehow damaged my new modem, and another new modem was installed which seemed to fix the problem. By then, it was late Friday and I had lost half of my first work week. I'm sure I made such a good impression on the new employer :(
Other than the new job, life goes on. I had made weekly calendars for August for my DLP 2016 planner at the end of July, but haven't done much else with the planner.
I pondered why my box of freezer bags contained a lot of mutant bags, with parts of bags sewn into the seams of other bags. It was quite bizarre.
But, I did. It is a Creative Lettering class with Andrea Joseph, taught through Sketchbook Skool. I have been a fan of Andrea's work for a long time. She makes amazing detailed drawings with just ballpoint pens. She inspired me several years ago to make this journal page spread. The trick for me, which she suggested as a way to get a drawing started, was to trace around the object I wanted to draw, then fill in the rest.
When I was at Stampaway, I purchased a square Dylusions journal to use for the class (not required, but I had been wanting a square journal and this has nice pages to work on). I decorated the front page with washi tape and a couple of stencils I also bought at Stampaway.
I'll be catching up with my 2016 planner as time goes on and post progress here. And I feel like I'm starting my new job again for the second time tomorrow, after not being able to work last week. I feel like I'm in the movie Groundhog Day, where the same thing happens over and over! !
