September Theme: What I Did Last Summer
Happy End of Summer Vacation Month Scribblers...

Ah, Memories! Remember when:

  • your teacher told your class to write an essay on the first day of school of what you did last summer?
  • you had time to sit and read a book under a tree and sip lemonade?
  • you last built a fort in the local woods and "lived" off the land?
  • you last picked up a brush or pencil and drew for the fun of it?
  • you took a day off to simply be and play?
  • you spent a whole, entire day without using a cell phone, checking the internet or fiddling with other electrical devices--now that's really roughing it?
Every summer, I always hunt and gather ideas and images and fill my sketchbooks for autumn and winter projects. This capturing of movement, color, sight, smell and sound in images help jog my memory later and bring me back to that summery moment.  So by the time fall arrives, I am ready to hit the drawing board. 

What did you do last summer? Did you try something wild and different? Did you find new art style or inspiration? A new medium? Did you discover a new experience or travel to a new and different place? Post what you did last summer here and share your memory. Time for show and tell, scribbler kids!
