Feeding Creativity

Yesterday I wrote about quilting friends that I connected with at Mid-Atlantic. I have some special, long-time, quilting friends in my life who have recently had birthdays. An art binder, with quad paper, was exactly what they needed to sketch to their hearts' content and to feed their creativity. I found this pattern on Terry Atkinson's blog, it was easy to follow and they turned out perfectly. I found the Crayola twistable colored pencils in a big box office supply store. Remember, when you were a kid, and you didn't get anything fun to play with on your birthday how disappointing that was? Happy birthday, my friends, go ahead and let your inner child(ren) out to play!

Life is Good!

I have always loved graph paper...that may have been why I studied engineering! And now its a great way to doodle new blocks. Great Gift Idea!

Where did you find the graph paper pad in a smaller size? I'm only finding 8.5" x 11". I agree, it's a great way to "doodle" blocks
