I am Anne Lawson, one of the Sisterhood, and the creator of the Sketchbook. Let me tell you how it all began…..
I love making sketchbooks, often they are from paper that I have started paintings and drawings on, creations that have not gone any further. I offered a sketchbook to any one on my blog who was interested. I sent one up to Kate.
Fast forward a few months when Kate, Dale and I met up the Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. We had a delightful couple of hours over coffee. When she arrived home Kate sent me back the sketchbook I sent her. I was so touched by it and you can see my blog post about it here.
We chatted about how wonderful it would be if others could add to it. So the Travelling Sketchbook was born. We called out on our blogs to others who might be interested, and the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook was born! 16 wonderful women!
I created the Sketchbook and sent it off to Kate. It is still travelling in Australia, but will be off to the States and then to Europe ~ Greece, Germany, France and Britain. We joke that it should have its own frequent flyer card!
