Day 4 of 100 day project

I’m struggling to find much time during the day with looking after Harry, especially as he still isn’t well so I’m scaling down my ambitions at the moment.

Sketchbook Project – ready, set GO

I was very excited to receive my sketchbook project from Art House Co-op for 2013 last week and couldn’t wait to start it. Although I had told myself I wouldn’t start it until I’d finished my prismacolor mystery project, which I am still finishing, I just couldn’t resist as I already have many ideas swimming round… Read more »
