52 Pick-me-up: Rust / Impasse

I could go on and on about All the Things breaking down. The car's console (I either have blasting AC or nothing). The iMac (thank goodness I did a backup hours before it died and I have a laptop to work on). The Great Tree Massacre at work, causing a lack of shade for my lunch in the car.

Is it the universe telling me to stop and consider a different route? Or is it simply things going wonky?

Let's ignore all that and proceed to my autumn leaves outfit accessorized with my Soul Carrier cowhide clutch with rust-colored accents.
Can't fit much in there. Maybe that's a good thing.
Ah. I feel MUCH better.
I got the clutch through a Kickstarter. I was sent a pitch to help get the word out, which I neglected to do. (Oops). Jenn recently wrote that she has a few of these clutches left in inventory ($175). There are also two leather tote styles are available for pre-order on her website, that are quite handsome.

Linking up with Patti's Visible Monday [later today]
and Fun Fashion Friday on Fashion Should Be Fun

I'm probably in denial about my Impasses.
How about you?
Rust / Impasse, link and tell!

30 Minute Sketch: Maricel

"Too Hot To Function" 
Visual response to Maricel's post today on ::My Closet Catalogue::

Her quote in the post fits this experiment well:
"Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."

Sketching the Emmys 2015

Viola Davis gave an eloquent and stirring acceptance speech Sunday night at the Emmys.
[If you missed it, view it here.] 

It was a great moment on the Emmy telecast, some of which I sketched live:

And some from Yahoo TV's All the Red Carpet Arrivals during commercial breaks, etc:
