Wow. Week 8 is done and the Tampa Hot Chocolate 15K and 5K Race day is JUST 4 WEEKS AWAY!
I enjoyed this week's training and watercoloring. I did a lot of my Thanksgiving planning on the run — figuring out the logistics of groceries and cooking the big meal this Thursday.
For watercolor practice I tried a couple of watercolor techniques I'd like to improve. Wet-on-wet technique for light-colored items, and splattering.
Splattering was fun! I can see how splatter could easily go very wrong if the colors don't land right. I'm happy with how it worked on my sunflowers page.

Homemade Turkey Napkin Holders
I added in some holiday fun with an idea for a turkey napkin holder. I won't be making them for all the place settings, but it was fun to paint them. Maybe next year I work ahead and make them for our table.
Logging Those Training Miles
Watercoloring Mini Kitchen Essentials
Since my mind was filled with cooking plans, I watercolored miniature kitchen items. I practiced the wet-on-wet technique on my little chef hat and dish towels.
I made my first attempt at woodgrain on the three utensils. Realistic woodgrain is going to take some practice and patience.
Week 8 of #HotChocolate15K Training is Complete
That's it for this week. Getting all my miles in for Week Nine will be a challenge. It's going to be a busy week with both entertaining and traveling; but I don't want to lose momentum now.
In the meantime, best wishes to everyone for a lovely holiday. I hope you get to spend it just the way you like!
