Yes,it is a big commitment.What I do most of the time is catching up with the challenge.But that is OK.I already have 25 of them.Today I have to do two sketches.The hardest part is to find time to take pictures and post them on my blog.

Gloomy and cold day.Taking care of a sick child who perked up in the afternoon ,thank God.
Still eating very carefully with a bucket within a reach.
These three sketches were inspired by magazines,Better homes and gardens and J-14.The first two were completed with colored pencils and the third one with watercolored ones.

The last project for the last year

This was the last craft project I finished in the last days of 2010.A little case for my crochet hooks and double pointed knitting needles.I sew it entirely by hand using recycled denim fabric from old jeans.For the decorations I used recycled embroideries from my daughter's old jeans.

The first four ones

I have never published two posts in one day but today it is an exception.These are the first four ones from my challenge.I had to make up for the first days of the year.I hope I will be able to ketch up in a couple of days and after that it will be easier.The first one is from a picture,#3 ans4 from life and #4 is a fantasy lady.I used ink pens and watercolor pencils.

The Challenge

It is snowing slowly and lazily outside.I love this kind of weather.It is warm and cozy inside.I sit behind the computer and waste my time.I've already checked my favourite blogs and there is no reason to go on sitting here.I realize I should use my time in a more creative way.
I make "to do" lists so some ideas do not fall through the cracks.Anyway it is a New Year.One should start it with new hopes,new plans and new ideas.One should take new roads and have new beginnings.

I had hard time deciding how to start my blogging journey for this year.Last
weekend I went to the website of and on their blog I read the inspiring article about Noah Scalin.He challenged himself to make a scull a day to keep his creative juices going.I got so excited reading about his creativity journey that in a moment of weakness I left a comment saying that I would challenge myself doing a sketch a day for the entire 2011 year.Now I realised what I got myself into but at least I will try.Yes I am going to try.It could be not only sketches but drawings and some other art pieces.And if I miss a day I will have to make up for it.I will post updates once or two times a week several pieces at a time.
I am doing it for myself to keep myself going.
