I just signed up for the Sketchbook Project! I am so excited to get started.. I'll have to go shopping for some drawing materials tomorrow! Have you heard about it?!
In a nutshell, "It's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks" Thousands of sketchbooks are collected from people around the world from artists, to children, to moms and dads. Each sketchbook has a chosen theme, then are on tour across the US until later finding their home at the Brooklyn Art Library. While on tour, you can check in on your book to see where it is, and how many times it was looked at within a day. They also offer the option to digitize your sketchbook so you can view it online or link it to your website. There is no jury, you just have to use the sketchbook they send you, commit to a theme, and complete the book then mailing it in.
Looks like they'll be on tour in Portland Maine, and Brooklyn New York of course.. two lovely destinations I enjoy day tripping to every once in awhile! Looks like I have another road trip planned!
So I ordered mine today and chose "I'm sorry I forgot you" in RED! I thought it would be nice to acknowledge things within my every day that I overlook and I can consciously appreciate their beauty and log them into my book. We will see what develops!
I'll share some imagery with you once I begin. I would love to hear from anyone else out there participating!
Here is the link if you would like to join the party!
I hope you do!!! http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject
Best of luck! xo, Chrissy

I headed over to the studio after work today to start up an order I received this morning from a fabulous new shop! I managed to make 55 dipping bowls, squeeze in a dinner break, and catch this AMAZING sunset!!!
I'll keep you posted once my goodies are off to their new storefront home!
I'm awfully tired now & heading to bed early after my 6am-8pm shift today! Yikes!
Have a great night! xo
