blogs

not long ago, i found the travelling moleskine project through a blog called this chicken & decided to join. i read that the sketchbook got posted out yesterday, & when i got a mystery package through the post this morning, i didn't even make the connection until i'd opened it! so yes, i'm the first contributor. i can't wait to have a little sketchbooking session. the good thing about being the first was getting the added gift of some delicious treats, i definitely recommend green & blacks white chocolate!

on the topic of blogs, i've managed to acquire two more in the past few days. as well as having permission to post to the travelling moleskine project blog, i started a blog for my fellow illustrators from uni, so that we can keep up with & encourage each other despite distances or busier lifestyles. hopefully it'll take off. you can view it's small introductory offerings (thanks to my lovely sanna) by visiting here.



even though i'm trying to curb my spending, i couldn't resist this sukie address book (which was on sale half price, so it wasn't so bad) as i've always rather liked sukie stationary. i've been looking for an address book for a while, & even though it's a little bigger than i wanted, the illustrations & colour make up for it!

right, i'm off to try & do some things from the gigantic list in my head that continuously grows!

How exciting to have received the moleskine first! You must feel a honoured (and perhaps a little full of chocolate, if like me, you are unable to control yourself around the stuff!)

Lovely little address book too!

kolleen - i'm glad i finally found mine, it's taken bloody ages! up until now everyone's address' were on scraps of paper & random notebooks & texts buried deep in my phone. it's nice to have them a bit more organised now. (:

rebecca - yes, it's lovely to be first, but remember, also daunting! so very daunting, haha. i will dive in soon. two of three chocolate bars were gone within the first few hours of having them, i'll save the last for someone who likes dark chocolate. (:

That's a nice address book, i always think of you when i see that stationary stuff! i like the idea of the travelling sketchbook, i think we should consider doing a group illustration sketchbook too - that would be quite fun i thinks...
