Happy Thanksgiving

091126 Happy Thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends. To share in the mood (because of course we don’t celebrate it), I went out and had a turkey and cranberry sandwich. (remember we are ahead here in Australia)
I had the same last year here

I also did an Australian turkey page here

I have just realised that I really should treat myself to going out for lunch and sketch once a week and try out all the earl grey teas of Crows Nest – where I work. It brings back the holiday mood, gives me the creative buzz and is very pleasant food/drink wise too! I always feel self conscious when in my home turf – or work turf but why should it bother me that people I know might see me?

In regard to the creation of the page....I keep forgetting...
Rule No. 1:Ask for the business card when you walk in the door – I did plan for it but was out of scale and ended up having to crop it slightly. Also, I ended up wanting to write more so my my text sizes, spacing and alignment are not perfect (it is the architect in me!)...so maybe another rule
Rule No. 2: allow for more text than you initially think.
Also, I would like to colour my rectangle but it is so incredibly difficult to do it well on this cartridge paper. I have been testing out some WC paper – I am really longing to start using better page...although there are many things that I love about these books.
