I've been incredibly blessed this week. I think my heart has grown ten sizes. I received a wonderful award from four people whose blogs I absolutely adore and whose art I constantly ooooh and aaaaah over: Edrian Thomidis, Kathy Hare, Linda Sarah, and Erin. Thank you, from the bottom of my now overgrown heart. I honestly just feel like a girl with a pencil and a lot to learn, but you've made me feel extra special and inspired. I'm deeply honored.
I also have a special update. I told my friend Arlene about the picture I drew of her and all the wonderfully thoughtful wishes she has received from around the world. My voice was shaking with emotion as I told her, and she was so touched by the response that she shed a few tears. She would like me to thank everyone who has offered words of encouragement and support. So, Thank You!

Quick sketch: We're still in Arizona for a few more days, enjoying the dry heat. We've been frequently visited by large yellow paper wasps that come down to take a sip from the pool. They're perfectly harmless, but my girls get a little freaked out. Man, they're big! This is a wonderful photo of a paper wasp taken from this site.
Have a wonderful day, and thank you for visiting!
