Craftsy is doing a drawing a day challenge for August

I've decided it's about time instead of just watching these things pass by wishing I'd participated, that I actually get off my butt and do so. Here's the link to the info page and then the prompts.

And here is my first drawing #AugustDrawingChallenge day 1, Grow. I figured the best representation would be be to start drawing one small thing and let it grow from there. First is was a bunny, then some dandelions (bunny's favorite) and then the background bits came. I used a combo of pencil, colored pencil, jelly roll stardust pens and one of the cheapy $1 pens from Micheals.

Things I did last week

 I joined reddit after the fried I made this for posted and the pic had like 40k+ views in a couple of little heart swelled like a ballon.
 Took these cuties out for the their photo shoot so I can get the pattern up in my shop
 Snails are not the easiet of thing to put together
 I made this one on a walk to work, and subsequent breaks/lunch
 An idea I had for a way to illustrate a story of mine, we'll see where she goes. Making progress on the idea is tricky, I can't settle on the style.
 Another walk to work project, when he grows up he'll be an octopus.
 Skull pillow, with a pocket for herbs. Another request :)

I let myself get easily overwhelmed by this whole blogging thing. I'll want to post and think 'oh my pictures aren't as glossy as they could be' or that I have nothing interesting or at least interesting enough to stay. And then I go and see how much time has passed between post and I think that I need to do something big and wonderful to make up for the time lost, and then I panic thinking what can I do that's good enough.

So I'm just going to knock that crap off. Instead I'm just going to post when I have some pictures of the neat stuff I've been working on, or when I find something amusing or awesome.

Here's some of the stuff I've been working on just lately.

 Art doll currently in progress

 And another
 And another

 A new pattern, Little Doods, tiny people dolls that are quick, cute and easy to customize

 My coworkers as dolls, a gift for my boss on her retirement
Each one of these represents how much I can crochet while on my walk to/from work. Pretty neat.
 My crazy tiny hexi project. Those little boogers are only a half inch
 An octo-meleon, I'm hoping to make a whole range of octo cross breeds :D

 Deku Link in progress. A request from a friend.

 Some little heads that will hopefully turn into cute dragonflies

My Snail is getting her shell
