Update – it went off in an envelope after all. My husband thought it would fare better traveling in a letter bag than with the bigger, tougher parcels. Looking at everyone else’s beautiful books, I fear I’ve brought an ugly duckling into the world. Please, be gentle with it when it comes – no mirrors or unkind remarks? I know I can count on you – and don’t forget to draw on the cover – that will help!
My little sketchbook went off to work with my husband today, ready to be packed up in it’s own little A5 box and sent off on it’s worldwide trip – first stop, Sweden! I wasn’t there to wave goodbye, wipe away a tear or give last-minute advice… Now’s the time to trust that I raised it right and that it will do ok out on it’s own. And wait for it to come home transformed.
And I’m looking forward to taking care of Robyn’s sketchbook on it’s first trip away from home.
