Xio Axelrod brings us this week's hop. A day in the life of.... 

What do I do when I’m not writing? I chase a fourteen month old. When I’m not doing that I find the time to read. 

 A future pair of socks?

A future pair of socks?

What I haven’t done in a while is paint or knit. I haven’t knitted anything in over seventeen months, possibly longer. This post made me realize that I should pick out a winter project to work on. It’s something that I really enjoy and at the end of the project I have something that I created, from string, that I can wear. It amazes me. I used to do afghans but those take too long now. I stick to small projects like wraps, scarfs, or socks. (Sometimes ambition gets me and I make a sweater.) Socks are a lot of fun to make. Before I attempted a pair of socks it was really intimidating but once I figured it out it became an obsession. Since I haven’t been able to knit - it’s been low on my list of priorities - I just collect sock patterns and books with sock patterns. It’s really a disease I should probably get help for. 

 Art journal for emotional expression

I also collect books about art journals which is another thing I like to do (art journal and collect art journal books for ideas and inspiration) when I’m not writing. It’s a wonderful way to express my emotions and there are really very few rules. It’s the opposite of knitting where I follow a pattern and intend to make something that matches as much as I can get it to the picture. Art journaling allows me to just paint or drawn or even write - words, phrases, or a short journal entry to go along with the art.
