About the January challenge:
I have a TON of craft supplies. and for all kinds of different crafts. But I could not think of a craft/craft item I would want to get rid of. Even if I don't do it very often, I pretty much do use everything I have. But I did make myself throw out a bunch of old acrylic paints and some ink pads that had dried up. I also threw out some bits and pieces of ephemera I knew I would never use and weren't nice enough to pass on to others. I ended up with 1.5 trash bags full of crap
For a new to me craft, I decided to try charcoal drawing. I have some nice charcoal pencils that were given to me (thanks PerfectlyBohemian ) and I had never really tried using charcoal pencils. It was fun. And very messy. I wouldn't say I'm great at it but I can see me using them on occasion. Both pictures were inspired by pictures I saw on pinterest. They are pretty simple but I wanted mostly to focus on the shading which is not something I've even been good at no matter what the medium.
