"Trees and Pennies", or "Days 8 and 9"

I have discovered that now I look forward to the daily drawings, instead of dreading them! I was nervous at first that this whole project would flop, but I'm enjoying it so far. Maybe I will run out of things to draw after a while, but that'll take a while!

Day 8, I drew a tree. I'm not super-good at drawing trees, but a while back I discovered this way. No, it won't end up looking like a photograph, but you can certainly tell what the picture is of!

Day 9.

I remember finding my first wheat penny when I was 8 or 9 years old, and how cool I thought it was! That penny has long since been spent, but I've always had a few around. Now that I'm working in a store, I run across them fairly often, so I'll switch them out at the register. No, they aren't worth much. A wheat penny is supposed to be worth $0.03 due merely to its "wheatiness," but then there are a few that can be worth $0.15, or even a few hundred dollars. I have yet to run across a $100 penny, though. ;-P
Even with their lack of value, I like collecting them, and arranging them by year, and counting them. Simple pleasures, eh?

And here is a guest drawing! This is by Alicia, age 13.

Isn't that nice? I didn't know before that she was doing the Challenge. The other pictures she's shared are cute, too. =)

I'll talk with you on Thursday!
