Christmas was very busy, and not much time to paint (other than presents for others). After we came home from our families, I finally started painting again. Although I still had one christmas painting left, it was something I was looking forward to, a painting of the very handsome Nick Cave, a present for my little brother. I finished it yesterday, it’s a relatively small one, but I am also currently working on a large painting of Nick Cave because I want a picture of him in our living room.
With the new year we all have the traditions of making new year resolutions, all the new year new me stuff. I usually tend to not make any, but this year I have made a few. I don’t see it as a new me, just a way to a better me. Although we are not very far in january, I have manage to keep my resolutions, one of them being to paint everyday, even when I really don’t feel it, I am going to sit down and paint, sometimes the mood comes and sometimes not, but I still get work done. So far so good. So hopefully a lot more art to post on the blog this year. What helps me keep my new routines is a book I bought that I absolutely love. First of all I must say that I love to make lists, I make lists for lists before making the lists for planning dinner, what needs to be done etc. So my sister showed me a notebook called List-Happiness, so I had to buy it. I love it, it has everything for making lists for your day, dinner planning, shopping list, year goals, movies you want to see, and empty pages to fill out as you please. So this book has really kept me on track with this years better me project, I use it everyday (I love getting to use the green highlighter on every day goals lol.).
Christmas was fun, but it was really hard to be away from Christian for so long. It’s fine for a couple of days, but after that I miss him too much. we talk everyday but it’s not the same as seeing him everyday. I got the best stocking from him, it was filled with sooo much chocolate and a Donald Duck Christmas comic, I loved it (my guy knows me well). As good as my stocking was, it was not as amazing as my christmas present from him, he had written me a story. I have no words for how much I love my story, it was funny, sweet, exciting and showed me once again how well he knows me (it had the Doctor in it and the Doctor was Tim Minchin, amazing!). I’m going to ask him if he wants to post it here. -My story<3
He came and joined my family for new years. It was so good seeing him again, I love him more than anything in this world. We have also been together now for two years, the time flies when it is with someone who makes you laugh everyday. Well that’s all for now, see ya!
