Hello from Northern California. Where the oak trees dot the golden hills. This blog is a portal for me to share with you what is going on in my little part of the world. I love to garden, craft and use my imagination in every way possible. Please visit me often and stay tuned for tutorials of different crafts you can do at home. I hope to inspire creativity in others.

I plan to participate because I think it will not only chronicle a year of my life in pictures and words. I think it will also help me stay in a creative frame of mind.
I am inviting all of you to participate as well. You don't need to be an artist to take up a pen, a crayon, some watercolors or even a simple pencil then draw something from your day. You could even glue in found objects, make a collage, doodle. Regardless it will be a creative and fun exercise.
The Blog is called The Sketchbook Challenge, you will find all the info you need there.
There will be a monthly theme, the artists there will show pages of their own blogs and share the inspirations behind the pages. They will be sharing techniques and tips.
As one of the featured artists Jill Berry states " you can spend the year learning to draw, ( I think anyone can do this) or you can not. But the year will go by anyways, might as well give it a go."
So my friends instead of posting random thoughts just to your wall post them to your journal as well and then illustrate the page.
Let's get creative !
