I feel like I've been on a month break from blogging since we don't have internet yet. Yikes! James and I have a nice little coffee shop, The Knock Box, only a minute walk from us. They have the best blended Chai and a bunch of enjoyable snacks.
We went to Knock Box this past weekend so James could do some research for a friend, and we both enjoyed relaxing on their couch with the view of California Avenue. I read my book while he used my laptop, then I quickly uploaded pictures so I could edit them at home. It's funny, as much as I know I need internet, a part of me LOVES not having it. I feel more productive and I get more "me" time. I recently deleted my personal facebook, but kept Bird Trouble's facebook, so I could use that time doing something more lively. The truth of the matter is: It's pretty great, life without Facebook.
I'll be getting a provider this month and it'll make my life loads easier. A lot of my inspiration comes from other artists, and not having a lot of artist friends in Chicago (I wish I had more!), I need another resource. Seeing all of my blog friends and other aspiring artists from all over the internet makes my bones all happy and gets me in a creative mood. Thank you for being inspiring!
Other than that, I've been doing some random creating as of late. I had a random spur of wanting to make stencils and print my own fabric by hand... so I did. Just random shapes and animals right now... yes, animals. I'll show you those later in the week!
Do you have a favorite coffee shop near home? Do you feel you're more or less productive without internet?
