Tonight I made a terrarium and felt inspired by the spongy lichens from an etsy seller in Louisiana. Yes I bought moss on the internet. I really have had trouble finding it in central Texas, even by creeks.

I've been thinking about terrariums lately. So much that I've been collecting air pants and lichens on afternoon walks and piling them on my desk. My coworkers are giving me funny looks so I am keeping them at home until I can find a proper terrarium jar. 

Anyhow, here's a drawing of lichens:

Here's a small stripe pattern I made tonight. I'm going to do my best to get back in the habit of doing these drawings in the evenings again.

New Years resolutions

This was a great project for 2013. I feel like I've gotten a part of myself back now that I'm creating again. I took a hiatus in October when work got crazy, but I'm going to finish up this project in 2014. Working for a startup keeps me busy, but I have fewer than 180 posts left befor I meet my goal. 

Tonight I made hopping john, and even though the blackeyed peas were presoaked, they're not softening up. I drew this pattern while letting the pot simmer. I need a crock pot I guess.

Happy new year!
