If you’ve been following along, you know that April is a busy month for Sprouts Press.  There are many shows and workshops happening, everyone seems to love journaling and sketching this time of the year.

So, today I’ve been working on a new batch of Adventure Journals, just for this month’s shows: Makeology and the Wayzgoose Book Arts Fair!!  If you don’t know about these shows, just click the ‘Shows‘ tab along the top menu bar of my site to learn more.

Hope to see you soon!
