“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.”
A blog? Me… writing?
Well it won’t be all writing. I’m here to share my interests and pursuits which often border on obsessions. I’ve been like this all my life. As a girl scout I earned all sorts of badges. Never content learning one thing well, I’ve always been a artsy-crafty dabbler. I’ve sewn clothing and I’ve embroidered and done needlepoint. I crochet and knit… not particularly well, mind you. I quilt. My latest passions are sketching, watercolors and journaling, preferably all at the same time, in the same sketchbook. I’ve even started bookbinding so I can use the paper I like in the size I want.
Don’t believe me? Well, that’s what the blog’s for. I want to share my fun… let’s go!
This is my workspace and yes, I cleaned so it would be more photogenic. Most everything I need is close at hand… sketchbooks, sewing machine, bone folders and PVA, good lighting and a comfortable chair. There’s plenty of inspiration from my friends hanging on the wall. I even have two large windows with views to the backyard.
But… I can’t get distracted. I have a deadline looming. I’m participating in The Sketchbook Project and the book needs to be postmarked by January 15th, 2014. Aauugh! Just over a month to fill a 32 page book. I’ve got to get crackin’.
Next post we’ll see how I’ve prepped the pages.
