Time for another Stock Take as the last one was in May this year. I credit Pip at Meet me at Mikes blog for the original idea, I like to do it a few times each year to see what is going on.
I always have the goal to whiz through the ‘prompt’ words and write down quickly whatever comes to me, but usually this post takes most of the day as I leave it to do laundry or make dinner then come back to finish it!
If you fancy a stock take, I have a blank list at the end of mine.
Making : Plans for my next art journal which I think will consist of vintage flash cards!
Cooking : Burgers for dinner, a combination of beef, mushroom and veggie for our family!
Drinking : Fizzy grapefruit flavored water.
Reading: The Captives by Debra Jo Immergut, I have only just started it but it is good so far.
Wanting: The weather to cool down, yes we are in the midst of the mid-west summer and I am in full whining mode!
Looking: At microphones to use to make video tutorials.
Playing: The 1 inch challenge on Instagram for which we are making a one inch piece of art and sharing with the hashtag #oneinchwonders2018.
Deciding: What to sketch on my one inch circle for the aforementioned challenge.
Wishing: I had a bottomless cup of the perfect tea.
Enjoying: Air conditioning! It is hotter than an amazing hot thing outside.
Waiting: For some rain tomorrow!
Liking: Chocolates from Ikea, my favorites are called ‘Polly’.
Wondering: If I should start making tutorial and art journal videos and put them on YouTube?
Loving: The kids being home and chatting when they are around! Getting teens to chat is a rare thing I find.
Pondering: What to put on home made pizza.
Considering: Starting a new sketchbook to practice drawing in, but I already have about 5 or 6 on the go, maybe I should fill one before starting a new one!
Buying: New shoes for Turbo Kick, I am having a heck of a time finding good gym shoes.
Watching: The weather as it is threatening to thunder about the time I will be walking home from the gym, better take my umbrella.
Hoping: We have a smooth back to school week starting next Monday.
Marvelling: At how fast Marks and Spencer ship to the US! I ordered this dress last week and it was here in two days!
Cringing: At how many frozen curries we have in the freezer!!!
Needing: St Louis Art Supply to open their new shop, I can’t wait to see what they have!
Questioning: When I should go to the post office to mail my Sketchbook Project canvas project off, it has to be gone this week!
Wearing: Skinny jeans and a navy t shirt.
Following: The Jealous Curator podcasts, they are always so good!
Noticing: I am tired today.
Knowing: I will be going to bed earlier to catch some sleep (hopefully)
Thinking: About doodling in my daily Moleskine planner.
Admiring: My kid who has a new job!
Sorting: Art supplies and accessories, I seem to have accumulated a lot and organized none of it!!
Bookmarking: Magazines, I only read a little at a time and have to put in a bookmark!
Coveting: New shoes.
Disliking: The science project jars I keep finding at the back of the fridge.
Opening: Boxes and wondering what might be inside as we try and de-clutter our basement.
Giggling: At British comedy on BritBox which we have just subscribed to.
Feeling: Like I want to draw some random faces for practice.
Snacking: As little as possible, I am trying to be a sensible eater!
Helping: The teens get ready for back to school next week.
Hearing: My youngest teen on the xbox telling me all about the game he is playing!
Happy Tuesday x
