I am thinking about buying a pen tablet. One of those amazing fancy ones you can take to a coffee shop and look aloof and hip while you scribble on it rather than a napkin... or say an actual sketchbook. I want to have one so I can put a rendering program of some sort on it and learn how to make my clay doodles digital. I need the tablet since my kids want to be up in my space/face/business while I make things. Tonight, I had a 5 year old climb on my lap at 5 pm and declare that she needed a cuddle just as I started the process of making a set of wings for some lucky unknown doll maker or doll costume designer.
As soon as I put my stuff away... she decided it was time to run outside and play in the dirt and rocks and all parents know how this goes after 10 minuets...yeah. Soap, water, bandages and several kisses and pleading for the over the top boohoos to cease or at least be at a less mind rattling volume and it was time to get dinner on the table.
The life of the stay at home artist mom is wild.
