A highlight of summer is the local farmers' market. I always love a good farmers' market. Being in the Midwest, summer brings a bounty of fruits and vegetables as well as local meats, cheeses, handmade breads and soaps. Loving these handmade natural soaps. Jake's Meats from Michigan is where I stock up on Great Lakes wild caught fish and pork, chickens and more.
I did something Wednesday that was totally fun and challenging! I met a friend downtown for a drawing and sketching adventure. We found spots to draw. I brought my sketchbook and my friend, her iPad. It was a great experience. I hope to do it again soon! When I arrived home, I used photos I had taken to add some color with watercolor paint. My particular sketchbook is designed to hold watercolor paints. It was a very fun process! I felt like a kid again while painting in my sketchbook.
