Sunday Sketches - - Time to Visualize

Welcome to Sunday Sketches!
 I am happy that you have joined us today.
It is my pleasure to be able to guest host
for our wonderful hostess, Sophia today.


So, Do you visualize what you want in life?
I do...

That's why I am sharing a sketch from my visualization diary
with you all.
So, what is it that I am visualizing here?

Yes, it's a book...
written and illustrated by me...
Ok, No,
this has not been published, yet...
or even written for that matter....
BUT
I have always dreamed of someday illustrating a book of my very own
...and I figure,
if I visualize, practice, practice, practice,
work VERY,VERY hard, then I am halfway there...
Life is too short to not do what you want -
So let's go...
Let's follow our dreams....

I am looking forward to visiting you all....and
I can't wait to see what you have to share, today!
Thank you so very much for joining in!


- Sophia our thoughts are with you and your father at this very emotional time.
xoxo
your Sunday Sketch family!

My mom always said, 'you are what you think.' I've no doubt your vision will be a reality. You are so talented and full of light, your work is sweet and engaging and so perfect for children. Great post, and I am here to cheer you on all the way. Thanks for hosting again this week, even though I missed last week.
