3 drawings and a brief update...

3 Drawings...I'm a horrible artist- not based on how these look, but that fact that I was given the pictures to draw back in August while I was working on the dog pictures from the previous post and I just finished them much for my "2 week turn around time", huh? Which leads me to my update:
Shortly after my last post I was contacted about a position (you know because I was laid off from my previous awesome job as a receptionist where I could knit and draw and read while at the front desk, in August) I started as a temp for a really great company in September- as a receptionist, and they thought I was so awesome at answering phones (I'm being slightly sarcastic here...I really hope it wasn't for my phone skills), they promoted me to the Accounting department after only a few weeks. So I'm now the accounting clerk, which is more like an analyst position, but I'm not going to get into semantics about what my title is...I'm just very thankful to have a job right now, and hope that when my 90 days comes in a few weeks, that they hire me on permanent. So with that being said- I don't get to knit or draw or read books at work anymore. Even when I was the receptionist at the new job, I wasn't allowed to knit or draw or read...which was more than fine with me, because I stayed pretty busy. But because of that, my two week turn around time with drawings, is completely shredded. I work over time a lot at this job- so that means I have to stay's closer to where I live, but even in this awesome Dallas traffic, it takes me an hour to get home, and since I'm actually having to use my brain for the majority of my work day (not that I didn't use my brain at the other job, it was just an easy position that didn't require me to think of outcomes, or do anything further than data entry...), I usually come home and take a nap on the couch...or go to bed by 8pm. Which doesn't really leave a whole lot of time for me to in August (prior to the layoff), I joined a knitting group that meets one Saturday every month...we're making The Great American Aran while the class is only one day a month- the knitting part takes up a ton of time.

So in summary- I've been busy. I've neglected the blog. I sleep a lot. I use my brain a lot. I haven't had a lot of time for drawing. But I've drawn. I've knitted. I got a new awesome job at a really great company. Things are looking up. Hopefully I can keep up with the blog- maybe set aside a day a week to catch up. I haven't even checked the blogs I frequent in 2.5 months. I'm a horrible person...I know :P
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and in the off chance that I don't update, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and whatever else holiday season. Although I'm hoping to get on here around my birthday this year...I'm turning a really great age, that most people my age freak out about- but I'm actually really excited about you know, I'm sure I'll have a story to share.
Take care everyone!
