Pregnancy has impacted my sketching productivity. I’m just not sketching as much as I was pre-pregnancy. I seem to be devouring books, but it’s taking me so much longer to get through the pages of my sketchbook.
But, I did do this sketch of Tad on the train from Chicago to Michigan at the end of June. We had a short but sweet visit to see family.
We also squeezed in a trip to the beach, at Grand Mere State park, and I captured my sister in law. The day was HOT and the water was cool and refreshing…though the rocks made it a little challenging to get into the water.
A weekend at the beach house with the beckwiths = relaxing and sketching
> This is the photo we chose for our Christmas Card this year. We went with a Postcard
mailing. It is so easy! Import your addresses, upload a photo, type in a greeting and voila! They create and mail your postcard. We get one sent to ourselves so that we can have it as a keepsake.
Happy Holidays to you!

I wanted to draw all the different kinds of shoes I saw while traveling, but only did these few sketches.
Cancelled flight means LOTS of waiting…

Finally arrived in Michigan to sketch St. Nick on Grandma’s fireplace.
Dogs. Buddy is hard to sketch, but poupee was a little easier.
