Mike and I recently saw the Descendants (it’s as great as you’ve heard, in my opinion). That spurred this latest drawing:
Sandpipers! They are out looking for something tasty. I’ve also fallen in love with the soundtrack. Must purchase…
because I am now the recipient of a very bright, very shiny award:
Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award
Thank you to winloseordraw for selecting me and my little blog!
Now, on with the show:
“I am certain that Mrs. Sparkly, a woman of high expectations, commitment and integrity would agree with this approach. She is notable, respected in her own community and likely to be peering down upon us; possibly spell checking and taking notes that feed into a mammoth government information data collection system (MGIDCS). She may have been recruited because of her discretion and integrity even behind closed doors.
The rules of engagement are:
Ten Questions must be answered with complete honesty or Mrs. Sparkly will find you. Mrs. Sparkly – we love you. We Do! Manners and behaviour, words beyond reproach … Then tag five other people.”
The Ten Commandments
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Me = mellow artist who married a writer. :)
2. What keeps you up at night?
New creative ideas.
3. Whom would you like to be?
I’m pretty happy with being myself. I know that who I am changes all the time, and that has been a fun journey for me so far. (For instance, I used to not really exercise. Not so, anymore. Victory!)
4. What are you wearing now?
A pretty sundress in a kind of coral color. It’s a hand-me-down from my mom…but it is an awesome dress! Also, my glasses, my wedding ring, and about fourteen band-aids. (I tripped while running and scraped myself up pretty bad. Luckily I don’t injure myself that often.)
5. What scares you?
I would say, I’m afraid of frittering my life away on things that don’t matter. So, I try to spend as much time with loved ones as I can, and focus on activities that bring me joy and meaning.
6. What are the best and worst things about e-logging?
Best: Sharing myself with others, and forming a connection.
Worst: How much time it can gobble up, unexpectedly.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
My email account. (Sorry…pretty boring, though I do my share of web surfing.)
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
It would be to relax and be OK with making mistakes. I can get too caught up in making something perfect, and that is a shame… because we all know nothing is perfect.
9. Slankets, yes or no?
Well, I am humored by this name and product, but I’m going to have to say no. They’re ridiculous. I mean…they make you look like a giant infant!
10. Tell us something about the person(s) who tagged you.
The blogger behind winloseordraw is an art student, fond of tea, biscuits, and drawing. I am a former art student, but still love tea, biscuits (or, I assume cookies here in the USA) and drawing! Check out the blog, there is fun art on there! Also, the writer recently finished a dissertation. Congrats!
Five alphabetically hand-picked recommended posters:
If you read this, then you better check out both the people who tagged me and also these five recommended sites. If not, I’m sure Mrs S will take you to task. You have been warned!
It’s been so warm out, lately…I feel like my life has been fast-forwarded to May. With that feeling in mind, I’ve been working on a new piece:
It needs a bit of editing, but is nearing completion. I am finishing these pieces, I swear! :)
I also experimented with making some stickers today. I’m pretty excited about the results…I hope to share with you soon!
