C*U*R*R*E*N*T*L*Y I’m Blog Hopping! ~ Here’s My Creative Place

As you can see I have a corner that I call my own!
 
This is my office area. It’s in the living room. 
 
Here is me setting up this blog post, a manuscript for the picture
I’m going to be doing next is on the stand to the left
 
THIS is what I would like to have.
Here is my daily sidekick, Dora again wondering what I am doing.
You can see she has already given up thinking about it.
 
 


Here is my chair.

I have made sure it’s not a comfortable one or I would sit there all day, 

when I’m suppose to get up and move around from time to time.


My ThreadMill.
I’ve been told I have to get on it while it’s running to benefit.
Looking out my window as I create
my stories and pictures
are not these pictures below.
 
 
 



BUT if they were I might have trouble creating these.
 
 
 

 
I hope you liked a look inside my work area. Thank you for stopping by!  ~JD

Though they have ended the series. It’s time to go when the actors don’t get along anymore. That always turns me off.

THE SPY GAME – 2: CHARACTER QUOTE

The Spy Game Book by JD Holiday

The Spy Game by JD Holiday

Dana picked up the black kitten. “For finding my cat, Sidney can take a kitten,” she said, holding it out to the growling dog. “Look, Sidney, it matches you!” she told him.
Eddie looked down at Sidney. Sidney did not want a kitten.
“No thanks. We have no time for pets. We’re in the spy business,” Eddie told Dana. ~ Eddie, Dana and Sidney from The Spy Game, a picture book by JD Holiday.
