There is a bike parked in my living room

Yes! It really is.
I have always struggled with inspiration. Some days it would come to me, most days I had to go looking for it. But I have to say N boy has changed the situation. Apart from the time issues, which is sparse, but when I actually sit down to do something, things fly at me.
For instance this bike, all I had to do was shift my gaze and there it is!
I am telling you, there are so many adorable, colorful and playful things around the house that I can document them forever. Which is a good thing ..right??

A trip to the art store

New art supplies surely motivate you. Specially when you are unable to locate your older once.
Past weekend, I got a chance to sneak few minutes out from my grocery trip to my fav. art store.
I went to Blick. And here's what I got...

The pink pen with an owl on it... apparently its a seven year pen, the ink is suppose to last that long. Hmm its a matter of months before I miss it! But I love pens and this one looked like hard to pass.

I have been eyeing water colors for a while, have never really explored this medium in detail so I thought I will give it a go. I have no idea what do they mean by Transparent or opaque watercolor.

Got a refill on eraser and black fine tip markers...if you know me you know that I HAVE TO OUTLINE IT! And these surely do come in handy.

I got a pot of green ink, I use old fashion fountain pen and fun ink colors are always awesome.

The water color pad I got is pretty cool, its glued on both the sides, keeping the paper in place and not letting it curl. You see how its intact, in spite of the volume of water I used.

And last a pair or Conté markers...these are like butter, always a pleasure to work with...

I am one

That's right, last week I turned an year old mommy. 
For a change there was a reason for my absence from my blog. 
I took maternity leave from blogging. 

Enn and I were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, who is a super active toddler now. 
I will be calling him N-boy in this space. 

This past year just zoomed by. I have no idea where time went. And as if having the baby wasn't enough we moved too.
Its been more than 8 months in the new place and I don't think I have still settled in. A lot of things are still missing because of the move, forget my art supplies a lot of my pots and pans are missing in action. 

And life has no time. As much as I'd love to create, sit down and draw or knit or sew...I am just too damn tired or occupied with something else. 
If my creative spirits desperately need an outlet, I doodle random stuff and that gets me by for a few days. 

I hope I get a chance to sneak in a post or two hear and there. 
We will see how this goes. 
Or I can always write about my 1st time mom adventures :)
