orly guppy


The littlest monster was particularly monster-y yesterday afternoon. She woke up from her midday nap far too early and resisted going back to sleep either then, or later in the afternoon when I tried again. By evening, she was exhausted and grouchy and weepy, and I put her into bed almost 2 hours before I normally would, resigning myself to an early morning wakeup. She is STILL asleep, more than 13 hours later.

And I'm trying to be productive! She was very needy yesterday and I got almost nothing done. (It is very hard to program or draw when there is a CRISIS worthy of tears or shrieks every few minutes.) I DID, thanks to a friend, figure out what was happening with the PA login, and get that all fixed up. (Wrong version of php was being run! *facepalm*) My afternoon was not helped by some of the worst back pain I've had in months. I took pills and leaned against my heating pad, and this morning it's significantly better; I will be attending dance class.

Here is a photo of the small monster looking adorable. The closest we got to self-entertaining yesterday was reading in my chair. She's not a furniture climber yet (all of our furniture is dauntingly high), so sitting in Mom's chair is a big deal. And have I mentioned how she loves to read? I may post video of that later today if I get other things accomplished.

Now I'm off to shower and cross things off yesterday's list.

There is a Sketch Fest in just a few hours that I almost forgot about!! Come join us for a bonus 24-hour, midweek creative jam! http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/

20 Days of 20 Years of EMG: Day 6, Sketch Fest

We've got a bonus event going on now!


I've gotten 7 very quick sketches done and posted - not sure if I will have time for more or not. Guppy took a short-ish nap today, and though she's not nearly as monster-y as yesterday, I am still a bit short on time.

So, today's special will be a FREE ACEO print of any piece (excluding Portrait Adoption pieces!) in my personal gallery at Sketch Fest. In fact, I will give away four prints - all you have to do to enter is comment here at LJ OR at the Facebook mirror for this entry with a link to the piece you'd most like a print of. I will give away two in each place. You may enter in both locations and may even win two of them (You may choose a second piece of artwork if you win both)! You may enter until Sketch Fest ends tomorrow at noon (4 PM EST).

ETA: And our winners here are afke and mebird! Winners from Facebook: Doris and Jenny H! Thank you all for entering! :)
