This week was better in nearly every way imaginable. Feeling positive about my new sketchbook and finally feeling comfortable to work in the large mixed-media sketchbook I picked up awhile back. Not letting the bad stuff get me down when there is so much good stuff in my life. I'm not even that sad about the lost sketchbook anymore because I know that my next one is going to be so much better. Highlights of the week were my super generous and thoughtful friends and other kind people, making a cool travel watercolor kit with stuff I had around the house and getting a new pencil case. The weather is lovely and I got to sketch a lot outside while my kids played after school. Starting to look forward to summer.
