little square sketchbook #2

More sketches from the little square sketchbook!!

Tomorrow it is day 1 of the trek back to Ohio. It has been a great sad to be leaving the team at The First Years, but I am excited to see where the last few months of school/graduation take me! Maybe back to Boston??

little square sketchbook #1

Tracy got a little square sketchbook from a friend, which i instantly fell in love with and purchased for myself. it has been a while since I have had a "sketch" book (i know, horrible, eh?) and it feels really great to have one again.
