I don’t know about you but this Covid winter has been long! Creativity keeps me positive but it doesn’t help with the isolation. I was exploring new creative ideas and I remembered reading about two people sending a sketchbook back and forth to one another. I decided, I want to do that!
Originally my sketchbook share idea involved reconnecting with a friend, but I started reminiscing about pen pals. That got me thinking. It is also nice to get to know someone new!
My idea has grown to include YOU! But I need your help!
Please do me the favor of answering a few short questions to help me create a “Spring Sketchbook Share” that you would want to participate in. I would appreciate it so much!
“Spring Sketchbook Share” program
- Connects you with a creativity partner

- Participation in Spring Sketchbook Share entitles you to three months in the “Spring Sketchbook Share” Facebook group.
