Been busy cleaning teeth...

And immediately's straight home
for a shower...


& then sleep!

until the next morning!

(oops... don't remember the link to this one!)

Oh...I did make it to our weekly Thursday night bible study
and have been able to get some drawings done...
I'll post some completed orders, next time.

So...finally, I've been meaning to post about these latest "blog hugs" that were passed on to me.

Thank you Ave @ Made in Canarias.  It is such fun having a blog hug (award) sent my way.  Ave is such an amazing and dedicated blogger! I am in awe of the number of posts that she has done in the amount of time she has had her blog, especially since I am pretty pleased if I can get at least one new post up a week...and as you can see, I wasnt able to do that this time!

The rules to this one is: Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award. This lovely award has been around, so you may already have it, but just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you!
I am picking these most recent followers:

& also, please pick up the other Sweet Award (aka "Blog Hug") that follows!
And here is another awesome award *a*la*Kathie* @ My Net Finds.  So Sweet! 
She created yet another fantastic award, not just how it looks, but the meaning behind it is sweet too! 

I am passing this one on to ALL my followers! Hope that I can link all of you all!  Kathie, I might need help! haha 
(I don't know how it works, but some of the followers profiles did not allow me to find their blog addresses to link up. BUT even if I was NOT able to post your link, please, please, please consider yourself a recipient of this SWEET award.  If your link showed up, I was able to post the link here:)
Live, Laugh, Love (Thank you for my blog design!)
Staci's Heart (thank you for my blog design!)

& my FIRST Follower (& also our FIRST born heehee!):
Thanks for introducing me to the world of blogging, darling daughter, aka GirlyTwirly...
Blessings & aloha!
Thank you everyone for following...and I appreciate each of your awesome comments...come back any time to visit!

Marie, thank you very much for my awards. Receiving one thrills me, but two, mercy, I am pleased. However, I did the "One Lovely Blog Award" fulfillment about two weeks ago. I have it, but will add your name too as honoring me. I have not had the "Sweet Hugs Award". You did good and made this old lady one happy camper. Thank you very, very much for these awards and for being the wonderful person you are. Also, you did another super job on the latest sketch you created.

Gracie said...

You have done a wonderful job on your post, the pictures are so cute, the words funny...your list of blogs must have taken you along time to do...its so much apperciated.You are trully a sweet person.

I have been wanting you to do a sketch for I and Mr.B.
I just didnt know what I asked Mr.B.what he thought and he said....So I have it! I will e-mail you soon about it.

Cute pictures and creative post. I especially like the shot with the toothbrush!!

Barb said...

What an honor and what a fun post.
It is difficult to carve blog time out of the day. I am lucky to do a post or two a week. I still love it though, I said if it ever felt like a chore, I'd stop.

You have a beautiful weekend.

Hi Maria...

I just wanted to stop by to say thank you for visiting my Sunday Favorites post and leaving me such a sweet note! It's so very nice to meet you!!!

I did find a beautiful fireplace mantle, however I am going to actually use it for a fireplace! I just love what Rhonda over at Blue Creek Home did with her mantle...making it into a headboard! I do believe it's the most gorgeous headboard that I've ever seen! I am keeping my eye out for an old antique mantle...would love to do the same with it! I am going to create a faux fireplace in my living room with the mantle I just purchased...I'm so excited to get underway with my plans!

Thank you so much for coming by...again, I just loved reading your note and appreciated your enthusiasm, my friend!!! I also really enjoyed all of your adorable animal favorite is the two tigers all curled up together! Hope that you were able to get that rest that you talked about in your post!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
PS...just wanted to let you know that I'm adding your delightful blog to my list of blog follows! I'm looking forward to your upcoming posts and getting to know you!!!

Chari said...'s just lil' ol' me again! I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed looking through some of your sketches! I love your style and unique and very beautiful!!! You are a very creative and talented lady, my friend!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

To Thank you for the two lovely awards, I've given you one as well. This one's called "The Splash Award" and you can find it at my secondary blog, You don't have to do anything with this award if you don't have the time. I just wanted to return an award to thank you!

I've included you in the Icing on the Cake Award too, cos I mean, you're part of the Icing on the Cake. LOL
