 Sketchbook Project 2014 update.

I have two pages to go and it's finished. Almost. I'll add some finishing touches, do the cover, and send it off to New York. It's been exhilarating. Once I had my subject (coffee), I was assaulted with ideas. But I know when to stop :)

Some pages. The sketchbook will be digitalized so it can be viewed online, page by page.

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown


  1. So excited, if I make to one of the Sketchbook stops I will ask for your book. Please post a link to your book once they digitized it. I pick the southeast tour. I hope they stop in Pittsburgh again, it was a 4 hour stop over on their way to someplace else.

  2. Wow! So excited to see how you ran with the project - your sketchbook looks terrific! I sure hope they visit the Distillery in Toronto again next summer. It was such a thrill to see the appeal of it all. I of course requested Jill's book and loved seeing it in the flesh.

  3. You are so talented and creative, Colette! I wish you would share how to obtain the stamp for the cute legs on that coffee cup! I know I have seen them before - but I cannot remember where.
    You have inspired me and I am now reading your blog daily! Looking forward to a very creative 2014 with your words and creativity!

    1. Thank you so much, Mary. The legs are from Teesha Moore, from a collage sheet that I purchased from her years ago. I'm not sure if it comes as a stamp, but you can check at


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
