Hope you had a nice and cozy Christmas. Spending quality time with your loved ones, and bingeing yummy food until you pass out, all warm and fuzzy. I’m slowly coming back to reality. Feels like I’ve been hibernating, and despite a cold from hell, things have been just perfect. I’m currently finishing the last bits of christmas snacks and beverage. Slacker style.
A date with Procreate
I’m so happy right now, got the best christmas gift ever from D. The Apple Pencil, so I can borrow his iPad for drawing. I’m really impressed I must say! Been lying on the couch, while constantly blowing my nose, playing around in Procreate. Insane, how much it reminds you of Photoshop. It has all the features I usually want when I paint digitally. Some of you may know that I’m not an easy person to convince when it comes to styluses. But this time. Wow, my mind is blown. Painted this foxy while getting familiar with all the functions, plus, I love the neat feature that lets you record your painting process. Sure, there’s still a long way to go before this replaces a descent computer, but just being able to casually sit here, scribbling down ideas feels amazing.
“The christmas tree will tip over”
Oh by the way! This is the first time ever that we have an actual full size Christmas tree. We’ve had a tiny one before, that we had to place somewhere high, due to curious cats. But this year, we thought “Let’s go wild!” and get a real one! Sure it’s plastic, but still ;) Anyway, we prepared ourselves mentally, imagining all the broken decoration we’ll have to clean up. All the frustration and f-words when the Christmas tree tips over for the 187265th time, and so on.
And guess what. The tree has been untouched ever wince we got it. All the worrying for nothing. Our pets have been little angels.
I’m planning to kickstart again tomorrow. I feel well enough to take care of the last stuff before the new year. I still need to post a summary of this year, so I can move on to the best part – planning for 2018. I’m really excited.
