Remember when I recieved this letter? Well, I'm so pleased to finally be able to share my exciting news with you. I have accepted a place on a one year course to train as a primary early years teacher, working with 3 - 7 year olds. The course begins in September and will be full time which means I will be leaving my job.
It's this change which has helped me to look at my TODAY I SAW project and think about my next projects. On 4th June I will have been drawing & sending postcards for one whole year. When I started the project my friends would ask ' How long are you going to do it for?', I'd answer 'I'll see if I can do it for a month. If I can, I'd like to do it for a year. I'm not making any promises though. I don't want to feel disappointed'.
I've far from disappointed myself. I coudn't feel more proud of this project. Taking a little bit of time to remember something small has become a part of my day. Noticing things and thinking 'I have to remember to draw this!', it's all become a special part of my creative life. I have to say though, if I didn't know that people were looking at my drawings and appreciating their arrival in the post I probably would have stopped last August. Thank you for following along and for your kind comments.
When TODAY I SAW is one year old I'll be drawing this project to a close and I'll open a new space where I can share my drawings and thoughts - I actually love painting and using colour you know! I'm really excited to share my new project with all of you and I do hope you'll come along and join me. I think it's going to be a lot of fun!
Best Wishes, Jill x x x
