Holidays have come and went, I've got a new craft/art/costuming space set up, and am going to be starting a new water color soon as a gift for mi padre. Asmaria (THANK YOU!!! Let me know when you want to pattern yours..) was a tremendous help in patterning the armor for the costume I want to make (but haven't started on yet.)

However, I really haven't started on anything creative so far this year. Most of this is because January has sucked BALLS. Between the continued construction on the road I live on causing me to have to walk a block from where I can park to my front door (in the dark, muddy street), no less than three deaths of friends/loved ones/relatives, and some very annoying health issues...I haven't got the energy, but less the creative energy to start or work on any of the projects I want to work on. Which I will now list, in no particular order.

- Edith doll
- Shanoa costume
- watercolor for my dad
- comic re-draft and begin laying out the first chapter
- bake something, likely cookies

On the other hand, thanks in large part to my funeral trip, I have finished books and played video games. Um...yay? (I feel so unaccomplished!) Also in no particular order:

- finished Memory Trace and Hotel Dusk room 215
- finished Stardust (Neil Gaiman), Howl's Moving Castle (Diana Wayne Jones), and Neverending Story (Ende)
- am most of the way through my first reading of Making Comics (Mccloud)

Now I'm off to do dishes and perhaps go twosies on a Wii Fit with one of my roomies. Laters~!

I say, bake cookies first. It only takes forty five minutes, and then you have cookies. To eat, while you go on to be productive.

I also say, geez, I had no idea your January had been so lousy for you. Anything I can do from way the heck over here?

Was it just me or was the second half to Neverending Story really messed up? Seriously, it was pretty disturbing.

You sound like me, though. I have so many creative projects that are on hold because of lack of time/energy that comes from having a full-time job. Sorry January has been so bad for you, though. *hugs* :(

Yes, it really was disturbing...from the moment the movie and book diverged, I was all WTF O.o; And while normally the book is better than the movie (and I really liked the multicolored text thing) the idea that he was FORCED to become part of the story and then gradually became a bigger and bigger jerk as a result was very...upsetting.

I wish the year had a reset button for you...

I knew of some of the bad things happening, but I didn't know it was that extreme (until yesterday) - then again, the passing of one love one is extreme enough, let alone several passing away in a short amount of time. I hope that things will become better for you and those close to you *consoling hug*

Right now, you have a lot to deal with that it may be too counter-productive to effectively be creative. Give yourself some time and then you will be able to accomplish all of those tasks with the perfection that you are accustomed to being *encouraging hug*.
