I love to sketch~
its often what I do while visualizing something
in my mind's eye~and so when Annie Sloan came out with her latest
book which is a colour and paint idea and inspiration 
WORKBOOK
I was like a little kid waiting for it~so excited to see what it would
look like and feel like and I couldn't wait to start using it!
Well I just got my first shipment of WORKBOOKs and 
I just couldn't resist putting down a little sketch~
 I am going to whip up a little flirty chair slip for this 
old country chair.
The sketch shows just how it will look~
little ties on the back and a ruffled skirt about 3" long.
 I stapled a swatch of the fabric to the facing page 
and wrote down the pattern repeats
along with the name of the fabric: 
Charcoal Pastorale Toile by Annie Sloan
 You don't have to be an artist with this private sketch book~ 
its a safe place to gather your decorating thoughts.
  I will be adding lots of other swatches and paint smears 
and ribbons and wallpapers to this wonderful book that is so ME!! 
And your WORKBOOK will be sooooo YOU!
Cut out images from home dec mags and staple them in the pages~
or pretty labels and tags or photographs that inspire.
Its that kind of book!! 
You can only get this at your Annie Sloan stockist~not anywhere else.
She made this just for us to bring to you! I think that's pretty cool too.
Of course you can buy it from my online store by clicking here
For Annie fans that already have your orders in I will be shipping it ASAP.
I bet you will be as excited to get it as I was~
Finally I will have a place to keep all my sketches from here on in~
like this one I did of my mother in law's chicken coop!
And this one I did of a ruffled curtain I was conjuring up~
I sketched this last spring...right before I met Annie Sloan
and she changed my life...I was planning to make long black and white
panels for the exterior of the house...so I drew a sketch.
But then I met Annie and got a store...and now all that black and white Subrella
is hanging in the windows at Maison Decor at 524 Harrison Ave Boston.
Just shows you how you can use this book to conceptualize stuff
that you might want to do...whether it happens or not~ha.
Yeah this is one cool book.
Thanks Annie Sloan.
