PRINTABLE: “We Are All Trying Our Best” Coloring Page

Why yes, it is 2 coloring page posts in a row! What can I say, I am on a coloring kick, and that kick is happening for a few reasons. First, during the age of Covid-19 and Staying Home, I feel like Coloring Pages are accessible and don’t require a lot of supplies. Who wants to do another online order right now if they don’t have to? Coloring Pages are accessible and I want to be able to provide something simple during all of this.

A second reason is that the Coloring Night for Virtual Craft Night went so well that I am going to make it a weekly event. All Wednesday sessions are now Coloring Nights! So give yourself a break and come join us in some relaxing coloring.

For this week’s Coloring Page, I adjusted this handlettered piece that I created out of my own frustration. For some reason, everyone is trying to tell everyone else how to spend their Stay at Home time. “You should be creating your best work!” “Why are you so productive? You should be relaxing.” “Why are you assuming any of us have time to be productive OR be relaxing?”

The truth is we all are trying our best to cope with this in our own personal way. So you do you and let everyone do them.

It’s that time of year again! The time of year that if you live in Los Angeles, most of your small-talk is based around awards season. We’re talking about what we liked, what we didn’t like, how it’s possible that so-and-so did or didn’t like such-and-such. Basically, we can’t stop talking about movies. And all of this energy and gossip culminates on February 9th when a bunch of fancy (see: mostly out of touch) industry people get even fancier and hand out the fanciest of trophies to those they deem worthy.

Basically, I love it.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I went to my very first craft/creators conference recently. I spent 4 days in Ventura, CA at Craftcation and the joy and inspiration that it filled me with was beyond any expectation I could have had. Don’t worry, I’ll do a deep dive post on Craftcation soon.

I have been feeling this creative afterglow since the conference. There was so much positivity and championing of each other and our work. The lack of negativity was astounding. I could almost feel my molecules rearranging into a non-cynical person! Me! Can you believe that?
