Postcard Update

Sooooo guys, it gives me extreme pleasure to inform you all that I've already started sketches for four of the postcards!

Since I've taken the picture, two more people have signed up leaving only two remaining slots left.  So if you haven't signed up yet, hurry! You can find the details in my previous post.

Since my brain has been full to the brim with ideas and inspiration, thanks to you all, I've taken to carrying my blue moleskin with me everywhere.  I recently attended an 80's party (which I will write about later) and I'm pretty sure the people thought I was insane when I would randomly stop and whip out my moleskin and start sketching like a madwoman.  I hate losing ideas.  My art teacher always told me that if you pass up inspiration it just re-enters the universe and finds someone with more initiative and drive.

Anyway, yesterday I finally got around to watching season two of Downton Abbey and I just now finished it up and all I can do is flail my arms around helplessly.

I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS.  When I was at the gym lifting weights all I could do was calculate how much of the series I had left to watch and whether or not I'd be able to finish it when I got home.  It was sad.  On the bright side, my 30 minutes of cardio passed by quickly as I analyzed the dynamics of Lady Sybil and Branson's relationship while trying to create the perfect playlist for them.  Eh, whatever makes the time go faster as I produce buckets of sweat.

Speaking of playlists, I've compiled all of the songs submitted to me thus far for the postcard project on my iTunes and I now have a wonderful little playlist to work to.  It may be a blogger thing, but all of the different songs really compliment each other.  It made me happy.


  1. Weee I'm so excited for this project to come along! :) Definitely keep that notebook with you so you don't lose anything... I hate when that happens.

    GAH, I'm only on the third episode of season two but I'm being overwhelmed with feelings too. WHY DO THESE SHOWS DO THIS TO US?

    1. I DON'T KNOW! I'm so emotionally invested in Downton Abbey it's not even funny.

  2. I'm glad the postcard thing went so well :) It's coming along nicely to. Always react to inspiration when you can. Something I've learned is that when it's gone, it's gone. You can have the best idea in the world but if you don't act on it, you'll soon forget it.

  3. Yay for the postcards and inpsiration! :D

    I need to watch Downton Abbey ASAP.
