Well, off to Portland for the Sketchbook Project! Going with two other friends who make up the “SnoBoot Sketchcats!” team – Sheri J. Kennedy and Vicky Bastedo, Here’s to hoping we may find our books on the shelf during this tour. “Leaf ‘n’ Memories” is my contribution this year.
Otherwise, slow plodding through the Camp NaNo project: Sights on the Storm.
