Morning coffee sketch and blasts from the past!

I found my old handmade sketch book that was started in what looks like 2010. I added my coffee cup and a haiku this morning, and am adding a few of my past favorites. What fun to find this. At the time it was started I was doing sketches in colored inks in alphabetical order....first all fruits, then I added a hand drawn butterfly to each page, and alphabet stickers by MaryEngelbreit. It has really evolved. From there I started with some zentangles, and I see the grands have picked it up too and added some art for me!

HI Julie,
That is adorable. Very colorful and I enjoy making things with brown paper bas. You need to continue with your art journal.
Have a beautiful Easter too.

Hi Julie *hugs*
Geez...I'm sorry you had sick members of the family too...not nice. HOpe they are better...

Your drawing book is wonderful. I love those pictures. You are so talented and I adore the way you've put together the book also.

My mom was back from West Palm Beach on Sunday...she said it wasn't the warmest winter...

Have a great day.

Thanks for dropping in. But I would have thought you could grow sedum perfectly down there! With your weather, wouldn't it thrive?

Not so well.....maybe it is the humidity. In California with all that drier air they do exceptionally well.
