« Part 1535: Creating for the Sake of Creating Part 1536 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 1537: Learning from Mistakes »

Today's post will be quick.  (Really!)  Yesterday, as with many Mondays, I had a lot of 'odds and ends' to do to get my week started. I didn't really sit down to draw until later in the day, and while that was all well and good, I don't have much more to show you.  

Add to that, I got up late today (around 8am – YIKES for me!) but since I was drawing until about 11:30 last night, I feel that my time was not wasted and I am kind of on a roll. It's all good. 

I do have something nice to show you all today though. My partner Keith has been once again busy creating some word art patterns. The popularity of them has been tremendous and people are asking for more of them, so Keith has been happy to comply. This new set honors more of our Emergency Service Providers:

They are available on our site as a set (SLDK582) or you can follow the links on the set page to purchase the patterns individually.  We hope you like them. 

Today is a bit dark and it looks like it is raining. It is supposed to rain for the majority of the day. I don't really mind though, as it will help clean the last dirty piles of snow that are still around. Some of the piles are large and I expect it will take a couple of weeks of warmer temperatures to melt them completely. 

Keith and I took my Mustang out for a ride yesterday when we did our errands. I was thrilled that after having it parked for several months through winter, it started up immediately. We had taken the battery inside for the winter, and I am sure that helped a great deal. I am making arrangements to give it its "face lift" in the next couple of weeks. It is hard to believe that I have had the car for eleven years now. It only has about 80,000 miles on it and it looks pretty good. The interior is near perfect and it has no signs of rust. However the clear coat had shown signs of wear last year and in places it has indeed began to peel. The dealership near us has a wonderful painting facility and backs their work up nicely so I have made the decision that it is worth the expense to repaint it and replace some of the trim and so forth. 

After getting the work done, I will certainly be storing it inside during subsequent winters. We have several facilities nearby and I feel that it is well worth the expense. I will have to take photos of it when it is completed. 

So that is it for today. I hope you all have a great and productive day. I hope to keep things moving here on my side and I will post photos when I feel they are warranted. 

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Yes, it is quite a bit more mild. It was raining and a bit wet though, but nearly all the snow has melted. I don’t think we will see much more for now. (I hope not, anyway!)

Have a good day, Anna! :)
