feeling... creative.

nonose:cards

so in addition to being totally wedding obsessed, i needed a new creative outlet. so i've been cardmaking! who doesn't love a totally cool card being sent their way?! i feel as though i've let a lot of who i am as an artist go by the wayside, but i know that can't be true.... i've got superglue on my fingers to prove it. but there's always that side of you that feels you could be doing more. i couldn't sleep last saturday - and as i heard craig's breath rise and fall as he was lulled into sleep, i had this CRAZY urge to break out the charcoal crayon and get all crazy on some nice thick paper. but i didn't have any. should i go buy some after work? probably. :) you know how when people are all like, "ugh, i don't feel good.." and there's always that one person who goes, "it's your body, trying to tell you something..." well, that fits perfectly. like, my inner artist died in the age of computer instant gratification. so i think i need to go back to bare bones. posting some hand rendered drawing will be awesome! plus, i don't even know if i can draw anymore. i'm always into drawing people. i love faces. they are so interesting. and all so different. although.... why do all chinese men look the same to me? maybe because i'm white, and not really around all that many chinese men. although.. i hate noses. or, i just hate mine. so i took this pic and contrasted it enough where my nose, like, TOTALLY disappeared. nice. i always think to myself when watching southpark, they are so lucky. none of them have noses... and then you see tom's rhinoplasty building in the background, and you feel stupid for envying cartoons. they must not be happy with themselves either. nobody ever is 100 percent happy, right?

Cool shot of you! It is fun to do the "hand-tinting" type of deal.

I've done some card-making myself. I made my mommy a valentines day card hehehehe :) I stitched a heart on the front. No pics. But, she loved. So, thats all that counts.

btw: what's hanging around your neck? Looks like those long, skinny braids a Viking chick would have.
