The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

I'm always surprised when I don't miss a day colouring something during the challenge. I am terrible at actually getting around to most things I say I'm going to do — in fact, saying I'm going to do something is a pretty good way to ensure that it doesn't get done.

I love colouring, but sometimes other things take priority. Sometimes it's other arty things, which is good, but sometimes it's just day-to-day stuff combined with my ability to procrastinate at championship level. The perfect antidote for the latter is the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge: just that extra bit of motivation needed to get me… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 1–5

The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 11-15

Halfway through the thirty-day challenge and I haven't missed a day's colouring yet (she says, tempting fate).   I normally seem to end up doing it at the end of the afternoon after a day of procrastination and avoiding doing the stupid number of things on my to-do list, but I did make an effort… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #11 day 11-15
