I am so thrilled to announce that I won Jill Badonsky's new Muse book at her Awemanac web page. I am so thrilled! This page is full of fun and inspiration. Us artsy types need fuel for our creative juices to flow. Jill provides inspiration in many fun ways. I can't wait to see her book and begin drinking in the magic!
Another happy gift came before I went away. Sue Rundle-Hughes awarded my blog the Lovely Blog Award. That was such a sweet surprise. I'll have to figure out when I can pay it forward. Thank you Sue.
Sue is a wonderful artist. If you have time, check out her web blog.
Sometimes it's challenging to share my creativity. I have been away for a couple of weeks in Florida. Just before I left, my computer failed. My daughter very kindly brought it to Best Buy for service because it's under warranty. They shipped it to their service agent and it's still not fixed. Until I get it back I can't scan the sketches I've done and I haven't had a chance to paint.

Since I'm heading to Florida for two weeks, I won't be able to do any work on her until mid November. This might be a good way to see the work with fresh eyes.
My husband and I are going to visit some friends this week and then meet family on Friday. On Saturday we'll all embark on a 7 day Disney cruise to St. Maarten & St. Thomas. If this cruise is anything like the last one 2 years ago, if will be wonderful.
It will be nice to be in the warm sunshine for a while. I really miss the beautiful summer we had this year. It is tough to have shorter days of sunlight during the winter. So
Sometimes I feel like I should carry a lantern to brighten the darkness. Maybe this will be another painting...
