Another week of not much crafting I’m afraid, I’ve been reading some good books instead of listening to others reading to me whilst I draw or sew or crochet and working fuller days, then taking a trip to the south coast.
The reason for the trip was to visit my mother for her birthday, my daughter and I got her a joint birthday gift of some watercolour colouring pencils, brushes, a pencil sharpener and a most amazing book entitled “365 days of drawing” by Lorna Scobie. (Do click on the words in colour for a link to this book)
My daughter had this book last year and found it so enjoyable she suggested her Gran may enjoy it too!
I love drawing and doodling, “do you mind if I put you on hold…?” are words to gladden my heart, ooh a few minutes doodling time, thank you very much, and with mindfulness so prominent at the moment I can’t recommend it too highly.
You may have tried colouring in (One of the appeals of adult colouring books is that they help users relax and de-stress) but why not move on to drawing your own pictures?
This book is a great idea for those who already draw and are seeking inspiration, and those, I hope, like my mum who are perfectly capable (though poetry writing is her strength, proper poems which rhyme!) though maybe lack confidence in their artistic skill.
Well, I will try and do something creative myself this week!
Thanks for reading (no sponsorship on this or any of my blogs)
