I was asked this question three times this week, by very kind and curious people. Well for one, there isn't a "typical" day, week or even month. To give you a glimpse, here is what I've been doing in the last 14 days:
1. I took 2 days off
3. I spent 50% of my time on a freelance design project that I do 3 times a year, for 6 weeks at a time. Which I can't show you a picture of, because it is proprietary information.
5. I wrote a 3 page handout for a brand new workshop. For each class I have detailed handouts for students because learning and remembering are two different things! : ) I want people to feel free to learn and not feel pressured to spend their time taking notes.
7. I taught the workshop: Watercolor 2: Small Vignettes. (I'm cheating here. I was too busy in that class to take photos. This is from the Mixed Media Travel Journals class.)
(Again, this photo is of the Mixed Media Travel Journal class)
8. I taught a 2nd workshop: A Gypsy's Journal.
9. I spent time thinking of workshop ideas to offer this winter and to teach elsewhere.
10. I taught two private lessons.
11. I updated my website. Created a new image for my intro page, and changed the colors of the menu.
12. And of course I did the things you do: shop, cook, laundry, take the garbage out, pet my kitties, answer emails, and try to stay in touch with family and friends.
13. Oh yes, and I squeezed in my birthday and Thanksgiving dinner. : )
After the Gypsy Journal class I sat down and created some journal pages by candle light. I highly recommend this (though check your colors with light once in awhile or they will end up too bright.) Here are some images of my Gypsy Journal:
Wishing you some Happy, Peaceful, Candlelit time....
