Blogging News and Life 

This month has been very interesting, and a bit slow where reading is concerned. I have been focusing more on my library reads though which has been so great. Its never a bad thing to focus on those fun reads and less on ARC’s. Definitely been doing more on my audiobooks as well. As for my blog, I changed my design a bit. I have been wanting to do it for a while but wasn’t sure what type I want. I wanted something more fresh and softer on the eyes. As for my personal life, its going good for the most part. Been busy with work and my studies and trying to finish up my project. The past few days have been a bit stressful, my father is in the hospital for pneumonia and my mom had neck surgery and had to have some discs in her spine replaced. So I have been a bit busier and not that much time on the blog and reading trying to take care of them and the house. But hopefully things will get better for them soon.

 

Here are some of my coloring, I have been working on two pieces. Now the first one…its going to take a while. SO many leaves, but I am loving the blending even if its taking longer than I thought it would. But I am making an effort to take more time with my pages in building up the color. The second one is such a fun piece…I am loving this fish pond.
