In an effort to de-simplify my life (can you feel the sarcasm?), I decided to try to do a "sketch-a-day". I am almost finished with my photography adventure of a photo-a-day, today is day 357, and as I near completion, I decided to challenge myself with a daily sketch.
According to many people that do this, it's supposed to stimulate creativity as well as keep your mind sharp and you may find that you become a better artist after all's said and done. By definition a sketch isn't supposed to take more than 15 minutes so they are supposed to be quick and painless. I've decided to sketch something I come into contact with on that specific day.
Here are some of the first attempts...try not to be too critical, they are merely sketches (some colored sketches!)

I came across a really fun gardening site: yougrowgirl.com. Not only is it super informative, they also have a store where you can buy...wait for it...
That's right, Garden Hoe t-shirts. I need to set up a wish list on this site.
So, since I'm a girl that grows things, here are some pics from the garden.
And, totally unrelated, a photo of the Mother's Day Meatfest
