Sorry about the fly through of the last lessons from LifeBook but the year really got away on me. Towards the end of November I had a nasty fall at work and this literally threw me for six. Anyway, I did eventually get my book finished - made my own covers and bound it with hand-stitching. Here it is finished.

Trying out everyday items from around home to see what marks they make.

|Week 46 - Glorious childhood tales with Violette Clark|
Oh what fun having a go at a bit of cartooning. thinking about all the things I used to like doing as a child, drawing myself as a child, and then putting it all together was such fun. I love the result.
