Here's the first sketch of 2013! This is sketch #154, available on the OWH blog. The new year also meant a change for the OWH Sketch mistress. Julie is "retiring" and moving on to other things. Marlene is taking the lead on sketches this year. The other change is that now the sketches will be created based on cards that are already posted to OWHers blogs. That's some incentive to make awesome cards and post them! (Previously, Julie invented the sketches and had volunteers make samples.)
Did you complete all of the 2012 sketches? Do you have a goal for this year? I have just a couple left from last year that I haven't completed quite yet. I'll definitely do all of the sketches this year, too. They're a fun way to get started if you're stuck with no mojo!
