Tru’s Art Month

Tru here.
i know it has been too long since i last wrote, but lately most tasks are just not “sticking” to have any productive effort.
That means communication with my husband is haywire,
but it also means un-productive writing about the complications and strategies for those haywire communications.

Past couple weeks arts and crafts are flowing, but little other than those two things.
i am messing up everything (including taking meds at the wrong times).
… but when i think of a friend i am thinking in terms of colors, lines, and shapes.

So i will go with the flow.

Some other time,
will write about crocheting “Collar Bibs”.
will write about making valentine cards for 2020 (which is finished for this year)
… but my mind is already occupied with ideas for next year.
Handmade cards take a long time,
so it is good that i am already coming up with ideas 12 months ahead, LOL.

(spoiler ahead) This year thinking i will make cards based on each friend’s name in art.
Like this one which i started for my husband seven years ago (and never gave to him).
