Day 29

My final sketch for the 29 Face Challenge.

But, as there are 30 days in September and I originally set myself the challenge of a sketch per day, I am going to sketch another tomorrow. I think I am enjoying this challenge too much hehe!

Have a great Monday!

Day 28

Does she remind anyone else of Kathy from Wuthering Heights? I am not sure if it is the whispy hair or her clothes but I think she definitely belongs in a period costume drama!

Day 24

She was a very quick sketch but I like how she turned out. She looks like a happy little lady to me!

Happy Tuesday!


Day 23

Cats Eyes

Although I didn't set out to, I think she looks like she has cats eyes!

She makes me smile and I like that.

Happy Tuesday!

Day 22

I have had a lovely weekend. There's been lots of sunshineeeee!

Fingers crossed it lasts at least a little while longer.

Hope a good weekend was enjoyed by all.


Day 21

I am not sure if she is a little Alice or perhaps a ballerina in the making.

Happy Sunday.

Day 19

This little girlie really makes me smile.

Nearly weekend again!! Yay!


Day 18

Yes, They Really Are Going To Make Me Wear This 

She seemed to me to be uncomfortable in the dress and it reminded me of my daughter whenever she was asked to wear a dress. A BIG NO-NO!! I jotted down at the side 'Yes, they really are going to make me wear this!'

Day 14

I hope that everyone's weekend is fabulous.

We have spent today painting in the interior decorating sense. Not the fun acrylics sense! Though now we have a bright and fresh kitchen again and it looks great, if I can say so myself hehe!

I have now stolen a few quiet 'me-time' hours to sketch my Day 14 little girl. The prismacolor pencils were calling again.

Happy Saturday!

Day 13

Well, I got through Friday 13th relatively unscathed.

I didn't fly as I had hoped but I achieved some things and drawing this little girl and her bird made me smile.

It's weekend!!!!

Day 12

Determined To Fly!

I slowly got back into the swing of things again today.

I still did not manage to achieve all I had intended to do but at at least I made a good start.

Tomorrow I am determined to fly and really get myself whipped into shape and knuckling down.

One more 'get-up' until the weekend!!

Day 11

My Day 11 sketch. Still feeling a bit 'bleugh' but sketching is keeping me focused.

I wonder if it is the wet and cold weather creeping in. Brrrrh! I do love the Autumn months but I don't think I am ready to say goodbye to sunshine just yet hehe!

Day 10


I am feeling a little bit quiet. I think this little girl sums it up.

I have spent a lot of time thinking about doing instead of actually doing today.

Hopefully, I can get myself revved up and raring to go for a more productive day tomorrow.

Day 9 - Concentrated Awesome!

I'm Not Small. I am concentrated awesome!

'I am not small. I am concentrated awesome!'

I saw this, I can't remember where it was but it stuck with me. Being 'concentrated awsome' myself hehe!

I sketched her and could not resist the prismacolor pencils to add some colour to her face.

Happy Monday!

Day 8

Owl Hat

This girlie is completely one on her own!

Yesterday I was discussing a friend's owl painting with her and then today this amazing hat appeared! I knew that I wanted her to wear a hat with an animal on it but I actually set out to make it a frog?!

Who knew? Hehe! It is fascinating where a drawing can lead you.

Day 7 (A Whole Week!)

Thank You!

I have honestly been so overwhelmed by all the lovely things people have said about my girlie sketches this week.

Here in Blogland, the 29 Faces Challenge site and on my Facebook page; everyone has been so amazingly kind about about my funny little sketches.

So, this little Day 7 girlie is here to say 'Thank You'. I truly appreciate all the kind words and supportive messages that I have received this week.

My Day 6 Sketch

Just Sitting
It's weekend!! There has been times this week that it seemed like the weekend would never get here!

I am so pleased it did.

I am going to be mostly sitting this weekend. No plans for tomorrow, which is almost unheard of lately in our house. So I am going to make the most of it with lots of sitting and sewing and sitting and sketching.

Have a great weekend!

Day 5

Worse For Wear But Happy! 

This is a bit like how I am feeling today!! Not much sleep and too much to do!

Still smiling though - just!!

(However, the same might not be able to be said tomorrow if I don't get much sleep tonight ggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhh!!)

Wednesday 4th September

Grumpy Cat

This is my sketch for Day 4.

The kitty makes me giggle!! 

This little couple came about after the madness of the morning school rush this morning. A second day in school for my youngest and first day at college for my eldest. 

One did not want to have to go and the other was 'NOT HAPPY' at not being able to find the jacket 'I NEEEED'!! Hehe!!

They both made it in time (the eldest with a different jacket!) and they both had a great day. PHEW!!!

2nd September


I am not quite sure where she came from really. I sketched out her face and body and then bam, from nowhere, she became a little mercreature!

Thanks to Jenny's link on yesterday's sketch, I found the 29 Faces challenge and am going to try to link up. It will be great to share the month with them and to see their creations too!

Happy Tuesday! xx

September Self Challenge

So .... September!! Whaaaaaa??!! Scary, scary, scary.

I decided this would be the month I would set myself a challenge. I am challenging myself to complete a sketch a day for the month of September. Whatever else I may be doing, however I may be feeling I am setting myself this task.

Partly to focus my mind, partly to improve my drawing skills, partly to experiment and see where it takes me.

I got the idea from the lovely Jeanette House who began a challenge of  '100ish Paintings'.

If you click on Jeanette's name above there is a link to a fantastic video explaining the theory behind her challenge.

So... here I go! Hope you can share, even some of the journey with me.

Happy September - Happy Creating!! xx
