Inky Dinky Do

A snowy day. Nowhere to be and no pressing obligations. There are never enough of those kind of days. But today was one of those days. Yay! And I took advantage of it by doing a little something creative.

This morning I made a fort in the living room for G-tot—where we ate both lunch and dinner—and when he went down for his afternoon rest I dug out my box of block printing supplies. I carved a couple of small lino blocks and did a little printing.

I made a card with the little blob guy and made some wrapping paper with the other block.

Cute, huh?

    Thanks! That green is a really vibrant yellow-green. The picture does not show that too well.

    Yes, cute! I love that you’re making stuff, being creative and building forts. I want a snow day now. Sadly, it will be a looooong time if I wanted to wait for that to happen here. We’d probably need a Day After Tomorrow-level disaster to bring us snow. Sigh.

    I love that I had the opportunity to do those things! Yesterday marked the first day off work for a few for me and I actually spent it doing something fun! Yay!

    Wow, I went a little crazy with the exclamation points there. ;)

  • I love those colors together! A fort sounds like the perfect place to eat a meal. My cats have an Ikea kitty fort, but I don’t think I can fit inside. :-)

    Thanks. And yeah, not sure the kitty fort would be such a great place to have lunch. :)

  • That’s amazing! The colors are so rich. And you are so talented. If I didn’t love you so much I would hate you. :)

    Aww, thanks. I had fun mixing the green. There is just something about a vibrant yellow-green that makes me smile.

  • Wow, on the rare occasions I pop over here, I always am reminded how talented an artist you are. Lino blocks, heh. Haven’t done that since 8th grade art class.

    I’m pretty sure that means you should stop by more often. Just sayin’. ;)

    So fun to get those creative juices flowing. Carving the blocks looks like a lot of fun. And I really like the designs you made.

    I sat all by myself this weekend, with all Aria’s arts and craft supplies, and made cards for her and Aaron. Was very fun and very relaxing.

    Thanks Amber. We would have made homemade cards too if I hadn’t been so sick and if family wouldn’t have been visiting. Instead it was just a “Happy V-day” in the morning kind of thing.
