1. trying to be detailed without using color… i love black but it’s been a struggle… maybe i’m not so cut out for this ballpoint pen art 😦
2. finding a song that is relevant to each person, especially old people. i sent one to a former teacher today and i doubt that she’ll get the connection… oh well. and i’ve been thinking about what songs i might use when i send cards to my grandparents… i have a feeling our musical interests don’t overlap much…
3. figuring out postage. today it took me at least half an hour just to figure out how many stamps to put on my letter to japan. mika seemed to know right off the bat, but i’m convinced that the usps website is flawed. or i’m just bad at navigating that site.
93 more to go! (which is actually frightening because i feel like i’ve made such progress… when really, i haven’t even finished ten percent of the project. struuuuuggle…)
p.s. confession: today, i cheated. the point on my ballpoint pen was a little too fat for the detail of the drawing i was making on my postcard so i used a fine point ink pen even though i’ve limited myself to only ballpoint pens. I KNOW, terrible. it will never happen again. i felt really bad about it up until this confession. phew.
