It's Like a Concert Tour But with Sketchbooks!

I just signed up for 'The Sketchbook Project' from the Brooklyn Art Library.  And they say it's like a concert tour but with sketchbooks!  Basically you choose a theme and they send you a sketchbook.  you decorate the sketchbook with anything (drawing, painting, collage, found objects, poems, ect) and send it back to them.  Then they send it and all its companions on a journey around the country to different galleries and museums.  After that is done they archive it permanately in their collection!
The Sketchbook Project: 2011
There's still time to sign up!!  It costs a base $25 for the sketchbook and then they have optional extras like a t-shirt.
The theme I chose is ''d be home by now'  I plan on extending it to be 'If the Earth was your home, you'd be home now' and doing lots of nature related things, photos, paintings, pressed flowers / leaves, maybe even some pictures of faerie houses since they make the earth their home!  a very sustainable / recycle-y / hippie kind of thing. lol  I am super excited and will be sharing the process when I get mine!
