Mother's Day found me enjoying cupcakes for breakfast and waiting for Hubby to get home from his night shift.  Being the good Hubby he is, he bought me a black and white page sketch book and a tin of pastel pencils.

We then spent the day with our mothers enjoying lunch together.  I sat watching the action happening around me (thank you oh reconstructed big toe!) and passed the time trying to sketch those around me.  Pastels are new to me but I was inspired when a friend showed me a pastel drawing on black paper.  But I found myself experiencing pastel fail.

That is, until a couple of weeks later when I casually flicked through the images I had drawn that day.  Fail.  Fail.  Fail.  Oh...who drew that?
I actually found myself thinking, who had I let draw in my book?  And then I remembered.  I had taken five to ten minutes to simply sketch with abandon.  I turned the page over and immediately forgot about that fleeting moment.  Win.
