Here come the hives.


I've decided to do something that makes me nervous. I hope you don't mind.

Is it cool with you guys if I start showing you my sketchbook? I know I've told all of you before that I like to paint and draw. Well, after a long time of anxious procrastination, I've finally started to pull out my supplies again and I'm having so much fun. There's a whole lotta inspiration inside my head, and it makes my heart so happy! I'm nowhere near where I want to be when it comes to skill, but I'd really like to improve.

And I can't think of a better way to kick my buns into gear than to display my sketchbook for all the internet to judge and critique.


But I'm doing it anyway. I'm going to spend nap times and evenings working on something, and then I'll show you what I (and my tiny paintbrush) have come up with every Friday.

Ok? Ok cool.
