Creative Everyday check in

Despite feeling like I do nothing but exercise, drive back and forth to the Y, and fix/eat food all day long, I have managed to do something creative every single day.  Some days it is more than one thing.
The above mixed media piece is inspired from a dream I had.  The last words I saw/heard in the dream and the feelings they invoked.  I'm still working on my a face a day project, sometimes using photos as guides.
 Day 15, 16 (first time playing with watercolor) and 17.
 Day 18, 19 and 20 (from a photo I took of an actor on TV).
 Day 21 (another from a photo), 22 and 23.  I haven't done the one for today yet.
After finishing the shrug, I was ready to start something that I've had in my queue for a few years. The Lake Country Throw looks like it isn't too complicated but has some new stitches for me to learn.  A bonus is that I love this yarn (James C. Brett Marble Chunky), it is amazingly soft for a 100% acrylic yarn.

Well, that is what I've been up to.  How has your creative week been?

thanks for stopping by!
love & blessings

Good for you! Keep it going! I have been doing lots of painting and loving every moment of it! Last night I dreamed of a Siberian tiger! He was gorgeous!
