Guess This Wasn't So Hard After All

One of the Quests that I REALLY HATE are the ones that instruct you to draw a cartoon using 3 cells. First of all I can't draw and I just didn't want to do it, so I would look for any other Quests that were easier to accomplish. Today, for some reason, I decided to draw the 3 cells using a colored pencil.  Then I stared at it for a bit. Then I thought of what I had to do later. My heart would be pounding, wasn't sure if someone was going to be angry with me and then I thought of the end result... a big smile on mom's face.  Okay, my cartoon would never win any awards, but that smile on Mom's face made it all worth while.

It was the same thing with doodling. I didn't want to do that either and I'm a pretty good doodler now, if I do say so myself. As for the cartoons, I think that I just might have lost my fear or whatever it was, especially if I can see the end with something happy happening!

Thinking Ahead... Buy one Christmas gift or stocking stuffer for next Christmas. You have no idea how much stress it will take off of you when next December rolls around. This year, I enjoyed the entire month instead of scrambling to get everything on my to-do list completed.
