Bikes, Stamps, and Poetry
My favorite part about Summer, besides strawberries, is riding my bike. I have a Trek hybrid that Matt bought me three and a half years ago for my birthday. The bike shop told me when we picked it out that I should bring it back in after a year to have the breaks checked (or something like that). I actually don't really remember what he said..just that I was supposed to bring it in every year. Anyhoo, I never got around to bringing it in for a tune up until a few days ago. I actually would have waited longer but one of my pedals was squeaking. Also, it was becoming increasingly difficult to ride for long distances. I don't know why..maybe the tires were low or something. I brought my bike in on Monday and I picked it up last night. Whatever they did it made a huge difference! I haven't had a chance to go on a long bike ride, but I'm planning on going tomorrow night.
Now onto stamps! Asspocket Productions on Etsy used one of my drawings to make a stamp. You can see it here. They also sent me one and I got it in the mail yesterday. It's a neat little stamp and it even came with a plastic case. I also like that she has YouTube videos explaining how to care for and use the stamps.
Little Papoose used my drawing Waiting as an illustration for one of her poems. You can read it here.
I hope everyone is having a great week, and I'll be back again tomorrow with my Illustration Friday entry :o)
