Here’s the art project I did last Friday.
So the Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma City (which is a way awesome place, by the way, that you should totally visit if you have the chance), was like, “Hey, artsy people! We’re hosting an art lesson, so come on over and we’ll draw some skulls!” So myself and a couple of friends said, “We’re cool with skulls!”
This is a birch wood panel painted with acrylics. Then we took up paper and pencil and sketched the skulls. Then the skulls were cut out and affixed to the background with modge podge.
It had been a while since I had gotten to hang out with these friends, and even longer since I had done art WITH someone, and oh man, I had a blast.
thought-ripples said: I’m sorry to hear of your passing. But I’m looking forward to all the RIDICULOUSLY RAD stuff you’ll be making in the afterlife. After all, a little case of death can’t stop you from being awesome. Also: “She died as she lived, making cool stuff” ;D
Dude, you had better be able to make ridiculously rad stuff in heaven, or I’m gonna be like, “lol, nope!”
God: “Sarah, where are you going?”
Me: “idk to go haunt a craft store or something. This place is boring.”
Also: “She died as she lived, making cool stuff.” I want this to be my epitaph someday! D:
Make-It March is on hold, because I am sick. :P
But here’s what I did before I crashed this weekend.
Thursday 6 - I picked out names for a bunch of minor characters in a story.
Friday 7 - I did an art project with friends, which was way fun. But I’ll give pics and more info another time when I feel better.
Saturday 8 - With the last of my strength and motivation I wrote a fanfic drabble. And then the illness really took hold, my strength left me… and… I died. I’m sorry to give this tragic news. I am, in fact, a ghost, haunting my laptop. I want it recorded in my obituary that the last thing I did in my mortal life was write fanfiction. My fellow fans will appreciate it.
Make It March Challenge: March 4th
Make-It March Midweek report!
Day 3 - I wrote a fanfic drabble. I might post it to my other blog later, I don’t know.
Day 4 - Nothing! DX (I’m actually working overtime right now, so this might happen from time to time.)
Day 5 - Worked on an outline for a longer fanfic. Original writing will come eventually. It’s on my to-do list. I just gotta get this stuff out of my system first.
Her songs echoed out over the water from the dock where she sat; sometimes the waves drowned the sound, subsumed it into their rhythms and swept it away; other times it carried clearly over the lapping wavelets that smoothed themselves over the scree of the beach, tumbling its…
Ah, I like this one very much! :3
This is the chic who’s doing Make-It March with me, so you should check her out!
Ahhh these are awesome! And it’s so cool that you got to make the glass bead yourself :D I feel so psyched up now ahhhh XD
Thank you! :D
You and I have a habit of getting each other psyched up for stuff. We need to
stop that! NEVER STOP!
I was talking with a friend and she said she had plans to challenge herself to a little creative writing every day during March. I said that sounded pretty cool and that I would like to join her. I have some non-writing projects I need to take care of as well, so I’m expanding my own challenge to include both writing and art.
It has been dubbed *trumpets* “Make-It March!”
Day 1: I completed a lego set. Don’t laugh, it counts. It was a lego architecture set that was over a thousand pieces and that I had slowly been working on for a couple of weeks. I needed to finally get it done. It looks like this:
Day 2: I strung together some beads to make a keychain (sans the actually key ring, which I need to get my hands on).
The white and green swirl bead is one that I actually got to make myself. An acquaintance has the supplies for creating your own glass beads and invited some people over to try it. (Which is the whole reason I made the keychain: so I could carry around my cute little bead that I made all by myself.)
I also did some work on an art commission, in which I’m drawing a line up of characters that belong to my sister. But I’m not far enough to show off a wip. It would be pretty underwhelming right now.
More updates later in the week. Feel free to join in if you like! We’re tagging it “Make It March.”
Do you ever reread a story you wrote a long time ago, and you’re like, “Wow, this is pretty good! It’s EXACTLY to my tastes! (Oh, wait, that’s because I wrote it.)”
A slightly early birthday present from my parents. Lego Architecture set for the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. Over a thousand pieces. I am sooo excited!
