4th June 2010

I have now completed one whole year of drawing Today I Saw postcards. I sent the first one to my Grandad and I thought it right to send him the last (or at least last for a while). Tonight I bought pizza and a cake to celebrate my one year acheivement. I said to Daniel "I've bought a cake to celebrate" he said "Yeah, just think about the amount of times you said 'imagine if I do it for a whole year!".
I started this project to try and get myself to draw regularly and to keep in touch with people, and then it just sort of kept going and developing and I never thought I'd end up feeling so happy about it. I'm so proud, and I wouldn't be if I didn't know that people where looking at the drawings everyday and telling me to carry on. So, thank you all so very much for following, commenting, emailing and sending nice things in the post.

More information about the postcard swap this weekend and news about my next blog coming very soon. Stay tuned.

sent to my Grandad in Liverpool, England
