Trying to work, take a wonderful journal class with Kate, read e-mails from my incredibly talented classmates and get ready for holidays is a little overwhelming. Problem is - I love it all - so nothing can go. So here is my drawing for this lesson using only pencil. This Christmas Cactus is sitting on my desk at school and I took about 15 to 20 minutes to do a sketch and write in my journal. It's amazing how good I feel when I'm done - even its something small!
