Oops! I skipped yesterday's Did you know? because I was out on Chris's dad's boat getting sunburned! So you'll get two today :)

colored pencils

Throughout my childhood, and into my first year at college, all I wanted to do was be an artist. Or an art teacher. But after my first year of art classes in college, I got discouraged and quit drawing and painting all together. I didn't pick up a pencil for years, and now I fear I've lost all my talent. I did channel my artistic and creative energy into the fiber arts, so it worked out well!

  1. There is no way you lost your talents. Thats impossible!You might be rusty but thats it. I REALLY REALLY wish I could see some of your work!

  2. Pick up a pencil crayon and get back to it, girl!

    (says the girl who feels the same way - fibre arts forever!)

  3. practice makes perfect! Or something...I never really think I'm very good at drawing or painting but that doesnt mean I don't enjoy doing it. If you start back up, it'll come back to you and I guarantee you'll have fun in the process :)

  4. I love art as well. love the picture you chose for the post!

  5. Hello! I just came across your blog for the first time this morning! I have had so much fun reading through your posts so far! I too set out on an artistic path with dreams of being an art teacher but it did not work out (not yet at least). I can't wait to read more! Have a great day!
