I have been sick. I have been trying to disinfect the house with whatever energy I have. I'm pretty sure my cat is dying so on top of all the snot oozing from everyone, I'm dealing with cat pee. I can barely smell anything but I can smell that. So here is my feeling for the day and my favorite word. I use fuck a lot. Probably more than I should. My little parrots use it just as much as I do. It's great! Parenting win... it fail. I don't know they aren't in school yet. The calls from school will be the deciding factor.
I am so grateful to all the colorists I follow for introducing me to this fabulous pencil sharpener from Derwent. It’s a manual, crank sharpener that’s pretty heavy-duty. While I was happy with my handheld sharpener for sharpening my Prismacolor colored pencils, that sharpener didn’t work with my Faber Castell watercolor pencils. Those pencils are fatter than all my other pencils and I hadn’t found a sharpener that would work with them. Well this sharpener works with those thicker pencils AND sharpens my Primacolors with ease. In fact, I’ve gotten some of the longest, sharpest points ever with this little guy. It’s become a permanent part of my studio.
I added this to my Amazon wish list and was lucky enough to get it as a gift from my husband for Christmas. It’s not cheap, but I think it will last for many, many years of perfect sharpening.

Sometimes all you need is a little splash of color. As Kandinsky said, “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” I’ve always thought of color, or colors in combination, as a means to distinguish or define individuality. The possibilities are endless with color, which makes using them that much more empowering!! I personally love pinks and teals. What color speaks to you? 🌈👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Balance and joy looks a little different for everyone - and that's the beauty of it! Good thing we've got such a wide range of colors to choose from. ☀️😎💛⠀
