Sweet Sketch Wednesday Anniversary Blog Hop

Can you believe it's been one year since I started this Sweet Sketch Wednesday Blog and shortly before that... my Sweetberry Designs blog.

Part of what made me want to do this is that I am a designer and have had several things published. I knew there were alot of talented ladies out there that could use a "fun out" for the week. So I started playing with my photo shop program. I first thought it was kind of hard figuring out how to get a good looking sketch . I almost gave up. But usually anything to do with crafting or creating my own design, I don't give up. I finally came up with a main design for my sketch that I thought would work. Thus we now are one year into this. I am so happy to do this although my husband say it does not make me any money. So I hope you have enjoyed the ride with me and hopefully I can come up with many more sketches.

Are you ready for some fun? Yes!!! It’s our one year anniversary. We are so happy to have you join us in the fun. Yes, it’s been one year since Sweet Sketch Wednesday arrived in Blogland. It’s hard to believe as the year has passed by so quickly. Thanks to all of our dedicated players and followers and to the best Design Team ever. Come on and let’s have some sweet fun.

So, pull up a chair, grab a refreshment of your choice and join us in Sweet Sketch Wednesday’s Anniversary Blog Hop.
