Wander: Drawing Challenge 2016

As a citizen of the interwebs, I follow a number of bloggers, YouTubers, and other contributors to the community. One of my favorite bloggers is Amanda of Wit&Whistle. She is basically living the life of my dreams (not that I'm jealous or anything). She draws witty, clever, and funny things for unique greeting cards, shares the adventures and sometimes misadventures of her day to day life, and lets her followers in on some of the fun.

Last year, she did a 15 Day Drawing Challenge. I did not partake but I loved seeing all the drawings shared by fellow Wit&Whistle followers and, of course, shared by Amanda herself. This year she proposed a 2016 Drawing Challenge with an 8 item list for the month of January. One of my new year's resolutions was "Do more of what I love/Take more time out for me." Ever since transitioning to "adulthood" with college responsibilities and then, finding a job and building a career, I have struggled to take the appropriate amount of time out my life for myself. I lost touch with a lot of my previous passions, one of which is drawing. When I saw Amanda was running another drawing challenge, I immediately knew I had to jump on board. What a great way to build up the habit again.

I've only completed 5 of the 8 items, and it's already January 31, 2016, so you can see that putting aside the time is still a battle for me, but it's progress!

Below is the first item on the list: "Your Favorite Childhood Toy." See the other four after the jump!

What are your hobbies and passions? Have any tips for making time for them?
