On Friday, March 14, 2014. I attended the annual Book Launch of The Sketchbook Party at The Brooklyn Art Library. This is my 5th journal. I have been with The Project since the beginning!
I was blessed to be joined by my hubby n 2 children. It was a great evening. The BAL is a very hip arty space. Thoughtfully set up to showcase it’s impressive holding of over 30,000 sketchbooks, a gift shop and a few cozy areas to chill and enjoy a journal or two.

After chatting with TSP directors and organizers, I was shown how to obtain my first BAL card and find my journals!
They are so friendly and organized… This is one efficient and technologically, up to date system they have there! The tour this year includes 20 cities!

The BAL is located in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. Lots of sweet trendy shops and restaurants and a few blocks from a spectacular view of the NYC skyline from the East River

So pleased was I that I picked up their fab 2014 poster and 2015 Sketchbook!

Looking forward to gathering ideas and beginning the book for next years tour! With working at the bridal and at home with my private sewing students, I always use my down time in January, just weeks before TSP deadline, to create my journal! Hopefully I get a chance to get started a little earlier this year ( I say that every year!)!
