To me, the promise of Mix is more than a starting point for my own creative process. It is about generosity and teaching and learning and playing and helping each other. I can see it being used in so many ways. Here are just a few…
Need help landscaping a spot or decorating a room? Sketch the area and ask for suggestions.
Created a cool tool or template? Now you can share it, and sharing makes you feel good.
Start a game of hangman! Pose a question, tell a joke. Be friends and make us laugh.
Learn how to work a math problem! Give this one a go - I promise I’ll help.
Mix has something for us all, if we are interested in finding it. And if you’re not, that’s cool too. Continue using the Paper that you know and love.
Here’s to finding our niche!

Trying to figure out if this just goes to Tumblr and not mix… unfortunately I just sent one of my favorite pictures to mix in the process of figuring this technical stuff out. sigh.. i wish I could afford my own technical support assistant/pool boy ha ha !!

Also want to let folks know that you can delete something from Mix by going to your mix stream online, not through Paper. When you click a picture you have posted to Mix online, it will enlarge and there will be 3 little dots. Click them, and you can choose to delete it from Mix.

sebohannon asked:

dear walksalittle - determined to become an artists at 65. Good for you. I'm 66 and I just got an iPad in May. A friend showed me an art app in July and I was off & running. I found Paper sunday a week ago and now i'm dealing with addiction. I can't draw for beans with real world tools & materials, but this kind of art work is so freeing. Enjoy it. don't worry about what might have been! Thank you for liking my post. Sarah B.

walksalittle answered:

Hi Sarah … I forgot to check my messages so sorry for the delay in responding … sometimes I feel like there should be a 12-step program for iPad addiction (which, by the way, replaced my knitting addiction.  I’ve told my friends that I haven’t had this much fun since I discovered that Walgreens has a senior day once a month.  Have fun!

These folks make me think of a favorite quote from a favorite song:

"…the lesson you learn, and you dare not forget,
What makes you grow old is replacing hope with regret.”

May hope and love and laughter and learning keep us all this young!

bigblueguitar tagged me in a question chain…

1. Who are you?
child of God who tries to walk in love and peace with all

2. What do you want?
world peace; or lacking that, whirled peas

3. What is your favorite color?
paisley

4. Star Wars or Star Trek, and why?
Star Trek; sci-fi of my early youth, so much more prolific; Captain Janeway!

5. Are we alone? If not, who do you suppose we share reality with?
Not alone! I believe in the God of the Old and New Testament, so I believe that Jesus lives in me, the Holy Spirit and angels accompany me, God the Father watches over me, and the devil opposes me. I don’t believe in ghosts, but I wonder about aliens. :-)

6. What was the first piece of music to make you cry?
Can’t remember the first, but the last was Kris Kristofferson’s “Why Me, Lord.” Made me cry because my daddy loved that song, and I miss him so much.

7. What was the first book you became completely obsessed with?
Don’t know that I have ever been obsessed with a book, but early favorites include: Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, Time Enough for Love (Heinlein), I, Robot (Asimov). I may have been a strange child.

8. In the movie of your life, who would play you?
On a good day, Kathy Bates. On a bad day, Steve Buscemi.

9. If you could change a single thing about the world, large or small, what would it be?
People would be less self-centered, caring for others more

10. Why is the sky blue
because blue is beautiful? (surely not looking for the technical answer)

11. Fnord.
TANSTAAFL.

This is the point where I’m supposed to pose 11 questions of my own and tag 11 more people. But I’ve decided to ask one question and let you tag yourself if you feel like answering it. It’s not a new question, but I’d love to hear your thoughts as it relates to YOU.

Some of you tag your posts as art, some as digital art, some as illustration, some as doodles. What, in your opinion, is the difference?
