DC: Pollinators

For the Drawing Challenge with the theme 'Pollinators.'  I'm not certain this piece fits the theme but I think pollinators make things grow and I guess this garden fairy somehow makes things grow wherever she walks. At least, I hope the idea is there in this piece.

Visit more 'pollinators' at Tammie Lee's blog here.

Creative Tuesdays: Bouquet

I'm not certain of the title but I like 'nervure' or 'vein'

Okay, so this isn't exactly a bouquet but it almost fits the theme.  I'm not certain why there's flowers growing from her head or that red streak down her hair, only that it just happened that way. I like how the flowers' colors turned out. The original flower drawing is here.

Prone to stay still

an incomplete drawing titled, 'prone to stay still'
My blog's two months old! Isn't it ridicules to even read such phrase? And probably even more so to write it but I'm so quick to start new blogs that just staying put even for a month is something to celebrate or at least, eat something sweet to commemorate the day. Actually, this blog is 38 days old if you're counting.



I am always quick to judge my own blogging habits which has never been constant. Now, it's almost nonexistence. Years ago, I posted almost every day because I thought people would stop coming around if I didn't have something new. Even now, I worry over not posting enough.



Sometimes I think it's so much easier to never have know there's such thing as the internet. Because knowing there is a world out there, however unreachable at times, there's this need to go there and be known. At least, my mind sees it that way.

"Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing..."
— Alain de Botton, On Love

On a bad day, I would doubt myself and doubt every idea and everything that I would post. I would instead choose not to post and choose not to interact with others until I have something to show. I guess in my own bad habits, I still crave some sort of acceptance that comes by putting myself, i.e., a blog post.

 But I do try to remind myself that this blog and every other blog before it, is mine and I shouldn't compare them to others. I shouldn't feel bad when nobody visits. I shouldn't do what others do just to be liked. I should do whatever pleases me. Right now, lots of ramblings and sometimes a drawing or a photo or two seems to suit me.

I think blogging is now becoming an old practice for people like me who is more used to a slower speed (which is normal speed according to me), who wants to keep blogging while ignoring all the other medias. I see too many of my favorite bloggers who has stopped blogging and I understand why. There's just too many other distractions that blogging is probably the last thing they want to do.

For now, I'll still be blogging along even if nobody comes here and even if I am not as a frequent as before.

Creative Tuesdays: A Flower


I sort of want it to make it the rose from Beauty and the Beast but I don't know about it now since it's not really a rose. It's more of a make-up flower but I sort of like it.

For this week's Creative Tuesdays' Flower.  For more CT participants, go here.

I only blog when it rains


20 Reasons that might or might not be true on why I'm not blogging:
01/ Someone has hacked into my blog and I can only post photos of bunnies and nothing else. I don't think people want to be seeing bunnies every day. Or do they?
02/ I'm waiting for someone to dig me out of the snow. Send help. And hot chocolate.  Mostly hot chocolate.

03/ I'm stuck at someone else's blog. It has created a computer error that won't allow me to leave.

04/ I've been kidnapped and I am forced to watch every show that was ever cancelled.
