Locations and Postcards


Today's journal entry was sketched on location at the Tesco Cafe in March, Cambridgeshire.
I have been busy creating postcards for my Postcard Pen Pal project where 3 successful exchanges have already taken place to date:


I've also managed to get a couple of location sketches in my large moleskin sketchbook while parked:

Location Sketchbook 2007

For now, sketching from the drivers seat is as brave as I get but as the weather improves I'll be heading out, once again, on location.
I now have to decide whether to continue with two separate blogs or add all my 2008 location sketches here on the one blog.
Any thoughts on this?

I love your 'from the car' sketches! I suppose whether or not you maintain sep. blogs will depend on how much trouble it is.. I don't maintain even ONE blog so I can't begin to imagine how you do all this and raise a family AND buy all those SHOES!! *L*....deni.....;)

Anita,
It would be so much easier to follow your work if they were all in one blog - so that's my vote.

I agree with Shirley--one blog is easier for me to follow.

To me it won't make a difference as long as I get the EDM mails and your announcements of updates. That way I just click on the link no matter what blog it is for. It's true, that only one blog has the advantage of following easier in case I decide not to receive the list mailings anymore.
I also think it would be easier for you. I you would ask for a vote "yes/no": my vote would be: yes, merge it!

One blog would be easier to keep track of your lovely work, Anita. :)

PS - It's totally fine if you haven't managed a change to reply but I was just wondering if you received an email from me this past week re. the Postcard Swap?

Anita Davies said...

Thank you Shirley, Linda and Meinhild, appreciate your viewpoints. I have been thinking that it might be easier to follow just the one.

Serena, thank you. I'm afraid I don't remember getting mail from you and can't find anything in my inbox. If I had got it and it was to sign up to PPP, you would have had a reply with my home address in it.
Try again, I'd love you to be part of the exchange. :)

Anita, I vote for one also - I don't want to miss the Tesco sketches! ;)

Claudia said...

Anita, you were so diligent again! Love your sketches!- I would definitely prefer to read only o n e blog where everything is together! -Just my two pence (or how do you say?;-))
Kind regards!

Anita, I vote for one blog, though you should leave the other blogs with a link to the combined blog in the final posts.

I go to your travel blog from my blog and to this blog from your EDM posts.

One blog would def be easier for your hoards of clamouring fans to follow! - but it's your call - it's about how you feel most comfortable arranging things.

These latest postcards of yours are super. You inspired me last week - for once I didn't procrastinate, and I painted a postcard just after commenting on your blog! Our PC and scanner are out of action, though ... hoped things would be fixed by today, but nope. I'll send the card out to you this afternoon and will have to rely on you to scan it for me! Xx

PS. Um ... can't seem to find your address.

One blog!

Robyn said...

One blog - and it will be a winner!

Anita Davies said...

Thank you all so much for taking time to share your opinions with me. The result is as I thought and I have decided to leave my location sketchbook linked in the side panel and dated 2007...My new location work will appear here on this blog alongside all my other journal entries.
With my blog going 'live' throughout the region on the 8th, I figure my new viewers, aswell as my trusted faithfuls, will find my work alot easier to navigate this way.
Thanks once again!

EJ...If you still can't find my address, drop me an email and I'll fwd it! ;)
