It's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks!

it's been quite a while since i've blogged regularly and sometimes i miss it. i seem to be taking on some new exciting projects so i figured i'd start them some kind of a home for me to keep tabs on them, and watch them grow. it's simple math really.... bad memory + good camera = visual journaling.

i am (im)patiently waiting for my sketchbook to arrive from brooklyn ny so i can transform it before it starts it's journey. you see i signed up to be a part of a huge traveling art show involving thousands of sketchbooks! they will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the states with shows in cities such as Brooklyn Ny, San Francisco CA, Austin Tx, and Chicago Il to name a few!

my theme which is 'jackets, blankets, and sheets' was chosen randomly for me. i am too indecisive to pick things like that. but i actually love my theme and although it is only a starting off point i think it goes nicely with my new found love of embroidering. this theme makes me feel cozy. like i want to build a fort. so i think that's the direction i'm going to go in... thinking of being wrapped up in blankets with tea, or sitting by a fire with an oversized jacket on in autumn or climbing into bed between some comfy fresh sheets. can't wait to get started!!

hope you will check back often as once i get started on something i usually go a little overboard and will hopefully be posting a lot of progress as i work on it. either that or i'll hit a block or get distracted with other things(probably christmasy craft things). either way, check back.
