Q & A a Day for Creatives

Happy National Bologna Day!  I am not a fan of regular bologna.  I do like German Bologna (fried). I grew up in a little place called German Village. It was across the bridge from downtown Columbus, Ohio.  The streets were brick and so were most of the sidewalks and homes.  We had a wonderful bakery, ice cream shop, bookstore, candy shop, and a wonderful German restaurant.   I loved the brautwurst cooked on the grill. I would get to go into the candy shop and get my white chocolate coconut haystacks from Harry London Candies (they are delicious).   We lived in a wonderful brick duplex on Sycamore Lane just down the street from the elementary school.  Out of all the homes we lived in (and we moved quite a bit when I was young), this was my favorite. Today I want to share this clever journal with you.

Q & A a Day for Creatives is a four year journal for people who like to sketch and draw. The book is approximately 91/4 inches wide and 7 ½ inches tall.   It has a soft-cover Kraft color cover with a beautiful frame on it.  There is pink, blue, yellow, and green on the sides of the cover (it is pretty).  The cover lays open nicely for drawing.  The book then has four slots for each day of the year (so you can use it for the four years).  Each slot is a little over 3 inches square.  The paper would be good for charcoal, colored pencils, crayons, and pastels.  You could not use paints, markers, or felt tip pens (I would not use ball point pens either).  They would bleed through the pages.  Since the pages are double-sided, it would be difficult to use the other side if you used those type of mediums.  Each day is a different question or suggestion on what to draw/sketch each day.  For example:  Draw the shoes you are wearing, Design your perfect playground, and Doodle for thirty seconds.  This is a neat book and would make a great gift for the creative person in your life.  I give Q & A a Day for Creatives 4 out of 5 stars.  I wish the paper was thicker and I think the book would be better if it was just for a year.  Than the artist would have a bigger space to sketch with one page for each day.  This is, overall, a nice book.  Q & A a Day for Creatives can be purchased on Amazon.

I received a complimentary copy of Q & A a Day for Creatives from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my review.  Take care and Happy Reading!
