This week’s art

So sorry I’m a day late on posting the Art it Up! post for this week. I was in a complete and utter funk on Wednesday night and just moved some stuff around so I didn’t miss a day. I’m having a harder and harder time with this pregnancy where sitting at a computer or art desk is concerned. I’m 2 months away from the baby’s due date and I feel like I’m ready to give birth now!

I have however managed to finish this adorable monkey toy that I had procrastinated on while doing other Christmas presents for other people. But now that the holidays are over I should be able to start finishing more other projects that have sat around languishing. I think I’m going to do more of this one in the other colors to use up the rest of the yarn balls from this one since I have a ton of pink, blue and gold left. I’ll probably make a one of each as the main body color and give them different types of ears so they aren’t all monkeys. A good idea yes!?

Random Doodles of the Week

I have already been slacking since October on keeping up with my goal of doodling on a daily basis. I wonder if this will make all the progress in my skill just poof and disappear!? I actually drew this one awhile back but I’m turning it into a colored plaque now. I must admit I really like these plaques.

This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!

The colder weather makes my right wrist ache because of an old injury I have arthritis just in that wrist – awful yes? Yes! It wouldn’t be such a big deal because I’m left handed – but oddly enough I do everything else other then write and eat with my right hand. Shoot, crochet, play pool, cut with scissors – pretty much everything else a right handed person would use their dominant hand for. I guess you could say I’m ambidexterous since I can use either…or lets see left handed but right hand dominant? *mad cackles*

So link up folks we want to see your art!

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    I love the monkey! My daughter makes sock monkeys. They each take two socks. Over Christmas break she was trying to make something with just one sock so she made a sock donkey that is really cute. I’ll have to show her your monkey- she’ll love it too.

    Yeah, you should definitely use the other colours as different bodies and make different animals by changing the ears – it’s a great plan!
    Your doodle is lovely. Definitely deserving of a plaque!
