Water, Water Everywhere...

Yippee!! I finally got my mojo back this morning. Whew, I was starting to wonder where it had gone to, taking a long holiday over Christmas and extending it well into January. But yesterday afternoon my new Twinks from Luminarte finally arrived!! As I've mentioned before this month, I had a niggling suspicion that all my mojo needed was to gaze upon some twinkly bright colors and I'd be off to the races again, wanting to lay down color onto paper. I was right, when I saw all those twenty-five tiny pots of twinkly goodness I wanted to test every colour. I got down to testing them, making little round sticky disks with the requisite colour on them to go on each lid. 

This morning when I woke up, all I wanted to do was paint. What a wonderful feeling. I'm so glad to be back. I got out my moleskine and drew up the new water bottles I ordered. I'm trying to drink much more water than before, hoping that helps in the health department. I must admit, drinking three full canteen's full (27 oz) is quite a daunting task but I soldier on and gulp down water all day. It is helping make me feel better though.

I'm absolutely loving the Kleen Kanteen water bottles. Previously I've been just refilling old plastic water bottles but when I really thought about it, I could taste the plastic-y-ness from the bottle and figured that just couldn't be good. The great thing about Klean Kanteen is they take your health seriously. They're made from stainless steel and can be boiled to disinfect them. (they're also BPA free) I love companies who make great products just because they believe that's the right thing to do.

I'm so thrilled to have my need to paint back. I just don't feel like myself when I'm not thinking about, drawing up or actually painting something. Now that I'm back I have a ton of stuff I want to paint up so keep in touch and I'll have bunches of art to share.

I'll see you in just a few hours with a new APR, I'm backdating this post by a day because I'm so late in finishing it. (I even have to reopen the Linky for this week's APR so I can add my own link!! Never had to do that before, but hey, I'M BACK, lol. Happy, happy. Joy, joy!)

Talk you soon, K? Yes?? Good!
