Ok... I'm a wuss...  I don't show people my sketchbook.  Tooooooo messy!  This is where I bang down thoughts, one after another.  Ideas.  Little surges of inspiration.  Notes.  Colors.  But I did sit down with the thing this morning.  Rather covered the gamut of seasons.  There are some Christmas ideas.  And patriotic ideas.  Kiddo #1 liked those.  Oh... did I say I don't show people my sketchbook?  I break that rule for my kiddos....  My favorite bits are some fall-time sketches, though.  I'm itching to fire up that sewing machine.  Oooops!  It is almost eleven and we have company coming.  Dang!  The house isn't clean yet.  No sewing right now for me.... 

Have a creative day!

What a fantastic idea!! I need to go buy one!

On Monday we decided to paint the bedroom our three girls share. They are 7, 8 and 20. You can imagine the compromise involved. Anyway, we got out the crayola box and colored a few mock-ups of the walls. In the end it may look a little like a circus tent, but they should be happy! :) So I guess I was doing my own creative sketching without even knowing it!
