ringing in the new -- 2006

( a day late. )
let's get on to ringing in the new.
after the 2005 we've had down here i think an UN eventful year (certainly weather-wise) sounds like a good thing right now.

05 was certainly a year of change on a scale that no one down here coudl have anticipated. it was a year of many changes for me and my family as well. and holding true to that, it ended on change. my dh and i pretty much started our married life working together, first for someone else, then we opened our own business.... (in another world ...eons ago!!) we closed that down 19 years later, and earlier this summer found ourselves workign together again, for good friends we had met way back when in that other world. mostly, we had a great time; its been a lot of fun (tho there were days when too much togetherness was probably not a good thing!!! ;-) ...but starting tomorrow he will begin a new job. or, as it seems we've done all year, going back full circle to working for the first person he worked for when he moved down here 30 +++ years ago. great opportunity for him...
but sad for the gang at work. i'mvery grateful that i still get him every evening... ;-) and maybe it will help me get outta there at a reasonable hour every day!

and while i don't want to utter the R word my hope is that i make at least a tiny bit of art every
day in 06.

and in the spirit of looking back a bit over the last year, when i chose the title *from the sketchbook* it was with the intention of scanning in pages, doodles, drawings, etc. from my sketchbooks in progress. which of course meant my sketchbook production went way down....
(human nature is SO damned predictable isn't it???) so i've decided to go through the old ones and start scannign some clips of those from time to time as well as adding new things from my NEW ones.

usually the first thing i do when i start a new sketchbook is collage the cover. so here's 05's covers.
