IF - Island
This week's theme made me think of the reclaimed islands being constructed off the coast of Dubai, and all the wacky and wonderful shapes they're making (I'll be silent about the ecological ramifications here). So, if I were to make my own island, I'd make it in the shape of a bunny-head. There'd be a house big enough for a constant flow of guests and gardens galore! So row on in. You're welcome any time.
I was incredibly blessed this week!
I received the I-Heart-Your-Blog award from super-talented and super-sweet May Chan. Her illustrations are always full of charm and happiness and beauty and playfulness. I love to see them, especially when I'm feeling a little blue and need a pick-me-up.
And then...what a wonderful surprise, I received it again from Creative Carli, whose delightful creations make me drool with envy. I LOVE paper, and she can create such wonders with it.
And I also received the Brillante Weblog award from the very kind Julie at RockerJewlz. She has the most amazing lampwork beads and cupcake jewelry! I'm constantly oooh-ing and aaah-ing over her beautiful designs.
Thank you so much, May and Julie and Carli! I was truly touched and honored, and these awards meant so much coming from you. In turn, I would like to pass along to YOU a wonderful little gift that was given to me a little while ago by the jaw-droppingly talented Ces, whose amazingly detailed drawings are wonderful for getting lost in and whose love for clouds is shared with my own:
