Illustration Friday: Wings

It must be tough being just a floating head.  I mean really.  No one to really talk to, no one who truly understands, no fingers to scratch an itch.  I felt bad for my crazy haired ocean bobber from my last post, so I gave her two sisters to keep her company.   Then again, maybe that wasn't such a hot idea.  No fingers to plug their ears.  Hmm.   I call this series:

Things in My Hair

Emma:  She has a bowling ball eye.
Me:  Yes.  Yes, she does.

And this I call:

Hare in my Things

Needle felting is sooooo therapeutic!  I'm hooked.  And bleeding.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Illustration Friday: Ocean

Sometimes I wish I were oceans away from here, a million miles away from now.

Thank you to Indigene and Lisa Rivas for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!  Given the greatness of their talent and their ability to uplift and challenge and motivate, I find it very humbling and flattering to be named by them.  Thank you!  

According to the rules, I am supposed to pass this award to 15 people, but come can I possibly limit myself to 15 when everyone I have met here has given me reason to smile and dream and to continue making art.  Even when I am feeling down and empty, my friends give me gentle nudges to continue.  Balance the bad with the good.  You know who you are.  Thank you.  Please accept this award from me to you.

And, as per the rules, I am supposed to list seven things about myself.  Ready?

1.  A few years ago, I participated in a tennis tournament and came away with a trophy-- Best Personality, a consolation for sucking so badly at the game.
2.  I am also a wretched swimmer.  
3.  My dog can only spin counter clockwise.
4.  I recently noticed that I rub my feet together right before I fall asleep.
5.  I grew up near Paramount Pictures with a view of the Hollywood sign out my window.
6.  As a little girl, I had an irrational fear of running water.
7.  Coffee ice cream sprinkled with Oreo crumbs that were sauteed in butter until crunchy.  Heaven.

Have a wonderful weekend!
