Tiny Sketches

Reminiscing over Italy and enjoying a new tiny sketchbook from Sugarboo & Co. Love the size and rough rag paper. Perfect for when you just have a “small” amount of time! What are you working on these days?

    Love this little booklet… what a way to remember a trip or journey, or even just a relaxing vacation at home… or playing with the pets. Thank you for sharing.

    This is exactly the kind of book I wish were tucked into my purse. or at least into my car. One of my favorite memories was taking my granddaughter to the cemetery when she was just 6 years old. We parked the car and began sketching the trees that were growing up in our 100 yo cemetery. She drew benches, flowers, trees and a deer walked by. Sounds weird but it was a fun day to be there under good times and share our love of outdoors. We sketched and talked about death and good memories and strangers that had interesting headstones. We both remember that day well and with good will. She saw my husbands grave as a place that I cared about as I pulled sand spurs from around it. She also saw that I could miss him but so enjoyed talking about old fun memories of her grandfather. I think it was a good way to show the life cycle we all face and we have little sketches tucked away of our day. I think making a little book like this for each of us, would be a good second memory as we return to the old, old cemetery again with older minds and more insight and questions and ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Mary this is a glorious comment! What a wonderful thing you did for your granddaughter, helping her view death in a different, healthy way. You taught her to honor and to love even difficult things. One day I imagine she will pass on this memory and wisdom and it will touch generations to come. What a beautiful, emotional thing!
