I would like to connect with the activities that my sketchbook (Vol. 15) is a part of. Its number is: 375.23-2
I ordered a Sketchbook on December 15 - your website said orders received prior to midnight Dec. 16 would arrive in time for Christmas. It still hasn't arrived. Will I be getting the sketchbook (which was supposed to be a gift for a family member) or will I be getting a refund? Right now, you are breaking the law. 🀬
Samantha Baldock Lizzy Hale Emma Orr Another bucket list opportunity. My sister has received hers and mine is on its way x
I would like to paritcipate into the Sketchbook Project. May i ask where i could get the book or how this works? Greetings from Germany.
Just saw your video, featuring Harriet. What a beautiful dog. Those eyes !! Can't wait to visit you....
yes
Rats! Missed the sketchbook! But I'm all in the canvas project.
A trabajar!
I have a question.....if you purchase the sketchbook, create it and send it in, can you ask to have it digitized at a later time? I am seriously considering creating a book!
