Speaking of No Such Thing as Mistakes



Posting this one because it has at least one flaw.  And because when I see it now I'm not happy with the black.  But then I look at it again and I kind of like it.  It just isn't color choices I would make now.  I do like the way the blue I used on the moon pops.  You can see a coloring blooper of some sort (This is an early work and I don't remember what went on with that one section toward the bottom).  Free page I found via Pinterest.  Twistables but a smaller pack than I have now (8 I think but maybe at 16 count).

And before I committed to books I got my feet wet with the free stuff I could find (like this).

I like this.  It's interesting to see how a person's work evolves over time.  I look at some of my first ones and while the coloring itself is fine, sometimes I wonder what I was thinking with color choices.  They seemed right at the time and aren't wrong, but aren't what I'd do today.

I see the one color anomaly you mentioned where it looks like you accidentally used a grey-green vs a straight grey, but other than that I don't see anything I would call mistakes.

I had a reading done (astrology but the astrologist practices SRT and is highly intuitive) partway through 2014.  She told me I needed to 'play' more.  I have a lot of perfectionist tendencies and a very serious nature.  When i found adult coloring I asked her if that counted a playing.  (we are facebook friends and 'met' through cousin K).  She said yes!  So I get a play boost, and meditation but it also helps me work on the parts of me that nit pick everything I do.    Coloring is teaching me (slowly) that I don't have to be perfect all the time.

On another note.  Dear Crayola Twistables.  I have a 30 count here.  I have an entire rainbow of colors from yellow to orange.  Also a  nice selection of pints/purples.  The greens are nice going from yellow to olive.  WHY do I only have TWO blues..  TWO?

@clueliss   I agree about the twistables.  Why isn't there a 50 or 72 pack!   I have the 30 and the um extreme maybe?   still not enough colors.

Though I have discovered that I tend to use the same colors over and over.  I'm trying to break out of that at least a little bit.

      Am I the only one who found it strange that when the ‘Bowers Girls’ are mentioned by Hayley Lina isn’t in the photos. I think Hayley mentioned Lina in relation to how her and Carver first interaction with Cass. I can understand if Lina didn’t want to be photographed but it does seem a little like she’s ignoring her by praising the others. IMG_0179.thumb.jpeg.2bd1581e92ea5b491ace4e7a73da8265.jpeg

      I agree. I also think it's weird she's deciding who the "Bower girls" are, but then I hate the gender politics around last names anyway.

      Was it known that Hannah was having a 2nd? I know social media is private, but it seems like stuff still comes out despite that.

      Wasn't she seen pregnant at Nurie's tea party? I am pretty sure she was seen somehow.

      Yet another trip. She’s just like Jill Rod in this way. She never wants to be home with her kids.

      Thank you for moving this. Kelly, like Karissa Collins, is one who I’ve resisted following, even though some of the Facebook groups talk about her endlessly. But the horrifying birth story, followed by the over-the-top fable accompanied by carefully composed pictures of Kelly looking spiritual (seriously, where does she find the time? She has a new baby and two small kids!), sucked me in. She is weird in a completely different flavor than others we follow.

      One of her posts has a link to the retreat. Among agenda items - “time with baby Theresa” and the ability to try on and purchase prairie dresses made by Kelly. Does she really have followers who will go for this, or is it just going to be her and her besties admiring each other? 

      She is selling time with her baby? What the hell?
