This post is a celebration! Today is day 100 of the 100 Day Project!
Here's a look back onto Day One
And with this tangly snake, I am done!
As I've already said on Instagram, I am pretty dang proud of myself. This is a momma-win. This isn't the first time for me to complete the 100 Day Project, but it's my first time to do so as a momma.
The first year of Ransom's life I attempted it, but threw in the towel after 20 days. I think that was a good idea on my part. I read in a book recently that when you are a new momma, there are only two things on your to do list everyday -- keep baby alive, keep mommy alive. On those two points I was successful.
Now, in Ransom's second year, I feel more capable to take on a tiny bit more than those two things. Just a tiny bit.
There he is just earlier today, helping momma return some window shades to Home Depot. He's such a great sidekick. And by that I mean he makes every errand harder but more cute.
So for 100 Days I've cultivated this habit of opening my sketchbook every day--usually right when I put him down for a nap. Sometimes I had to wait til post-bedtime, and on a few rare occasions I completed a drawing while he was awake and being independent.
I'm going to try to continue to ride this wave. No longer will I complete a full drawing everyday, but I will strive to draw daily. Now I can focus on bigger pieces, other projects (like the coloring book and children's book I'm slowly plugging away on) and add more to some of my animal drawings.
I'm also excited to do another 100 Day Project next year! I'm thinking I'll do 100 Days of Hand-Lettering, because that is something I've been wanting to grow in. But we'll see.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
