Greetings on this first day of November…(1.11.11). I was over at my friend Janet’s blog and found out about Sunday Sketches over at Blue Chair Diary. My understanding is that one can submit a sketch all during the week. My entry is below. By clicking on the Blue Chair link, one can see all the other entries for the week.
Note: I was too late for Sunday Sketches after all so I was wrong about submitting a sketch thoughout the week. I can’t link back from Blue Chair on Mr.Linky 😦
I also wanted to address something that was left in a comment on the last post. As a retired educator, I understand the reaction to “seeing books marked up.” I always told my young students, you do not write in your books. Here I am doing that very thing. Most of the books that I am using to alter are discarded library books. I have been getting my old books at yard sales or from the local library sale. I was using a 1970’s craft book as a journal a year ago. Someone, in the blog world, a few years back, addressed the issue of using old books to alter, etc. Hopefully, someone reading this will remember it and leave a link back to it in a comment.
