Cake stands and frosting

I have found it so daunting to get back to work after the holidays!  

To force myself back into the swing of things and to prevent me from being too precious over my work, I have started each day with a 15 minute sketching frenzy.  This was on the advice of Lilla Rodgers in her book "I just like to make things"

So once the kids have been dropped at school I grab a herby tea, set the 15 minute timer, ipod on with music to draw to and sketch anything that comes to mind; anything thats exciting me at that moment.  And to take it ones stage further, this week I have been drawing with my right hand (I'm left handed through and through!) resulting in scribble sketches full of character and confidence.

Here's how I got on...what do you think?
