Sketchbook Project 2011, So Dark So Cute Giveaway & Projects

Greetings & Salutations
Sorry I have neglected my little blog here was so freaking hot last week I thought I would die! We so need some rain here on the East Coast! I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe 4th of July.  The Fireworks here were simply spectacular this year!

The Sketchbook Project...are you SIGNED UP?  Better hurry if you are not...the themes are going fast! I picked "STORYBOOK" for my theme.  I received my Moleskine Journal in the mail yesterday, so it's official...I'm participating in the THE SKETCHBOOK PROJECT FOR 2011...WOOOHOOOO

Go here to sign up and read all the information about this project being sponsored by the Art House Co-op, and the journals will be in the possession of the Brooklyn Art Library.
They have even made T-Shirts for this Event! I'm so getting one of these! LOL
You have until October 31, 2010 to sign up.  The Sketchbooks are due on January 15, 2011, and the Tour Begins on March, 2011.  Which means that ...once they get your journal back it will be traveling to various states for people to check them out and look at them.  Also, they will be downloaded into the mainframe, so people from all over the world can view your journal/sketchbook! Now how cool is that?

Here is my Journal/Sketchbook...Do you have yours?

What I'm working on...I have been working on different projects, but needed to complete some needless to say, I have been crocheting and knitting like crazy to get these done.  I had to make 10 Sets of various colors here is a little peek for you to see these wonderful washcloths I have been making! My Family and Friends use nothing but these handmade cloths. Once you use them, you will never use a store bought washcloth for anything!
Connie, from "Bee Happy Designs" makes these wonderful wrappers for your hand knitted, hand crocheted items, and she made these wonderful wrappers for me! They just added the finishing touch to my work.  Please visit her at
Thanks Connie for the fabulous job you did for me!

Donna, over at So Dark So Cute is Celebrating her Grand Opening of her Blog Shop
Make sure you Check OUT...Donna is part of DAG and she makes amazing Creepy Orphans, and various other Mixed-Media Art Work!


I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend...I know I will be locked in my Studio.  I many new projects in the works and looking forward to sharing them with all of you.
Keep creating Art...and always REMEMBER TO GIGGLE!
Until Next Time...

YAY Michelle added a blog post!!!!!

It sure hasn't been hot here.. in fact I turned on the heat this last Monday and Tuesday!

I love this idea of traveling journals... I'll have to go see what's it's all about!

Could you not use the cotton I sent you???


Connie said...

Thanks so much Michelle for the mention of my etsy store! You are a sweetie and I totally agree, once you've used a handmade cotton cloth you'd never dare use a store bought again!

Sue said...

The sketchbook project looks like fun Michelle (I'm going to pass though - my commitment level lately has been pathetic LOL).

Your washclothes are so cool and I love the wrappers for them - very professional looking.

Stay cool (very hot and humid here too) and good to see you posting again!

The washcloths in the wrappers look beautiful! Looking forward to seeing your sketchbook. I think today's going to be a scorcher too.

I am a walking testimony for the wash cloths. Ever since I got mine from you, I am totally in love with them! I will not use a store bought one again. Period. I love the wrappers!

I am off to go check out the Giveaways!
