I'm learning things here. First, the pages in a Moleskin are very thin. Second, gesso dries pretty darn fast and doesn't seem to thicken up the pages any, but it does make the ink slide on a bit easier! Third, this is reminding me how much I hate my handwriting. Oh, to have pretty, swirly penmanship... Fourth, I sure can't get much done in the morning before work. For this one, I got the pages gessoed and inked in the morning and then finished the rest after DH and the girls went to bed last night.
When I got home from work yesterday, the girls had made me two more birthday cards and wrapped up another present in wrapping paper they made. It was a lovely rock they found in the back yard. :-) They actually made me open my initial gift on Sunday, so I could use it Sunday night. It was a restock of my favorite bubble bath; they knew I was completely out and had been using theirs. :-) DH helped them make brownies when they got home from school yesterday, which was the lovely smell I came home to, so after dinner at Ted's (best restaurant in the whole wide world in our opinion, partially 'cause we can walk there...), we had brownies topped with chocolate ice cream. Nice quiet birthday with family.
