Go Blue!!!

Continuing with the colors of the rainbow...

Here's a recent drawing (Blue's Clues) done...for dear friend's newest grandson.



**********
We have had many fun "Blue" moments in our family... 

...Hawaiian Blue Wedding Luau 1982...

(my hubby's mom was an amazing seamstress...she sewed my hubby's shirt and my blouse for our Hawaiian Wedding Luau that his family hosted for us... none of my hubby's family was able to be at the our wedding ceremony in my parent's state of Wisconsin, so this is where I met a lot of his family and friends for the first time.)

Air Force Blue with my dad's AF career, hubby as a Space Shuttle/Crash Rescue/EMT Air Force firefighter when we first met,  and our son Heartbreaker @A.F. ROTC at University of Kentucky...
(I meant to make a photo collage of my dad, hubby and son...but can't find the pictures...)

Falcon Blue @ Ft. Campbell High School...

1. Girly~Twirly...


2. Girly~Whirly...


3. Heartbreaker ...
(8th grade, but playing High School JV Soccer)


Blue during one of the girls' Kappa Delta Sorority Rush nights...
(Girly~Twirly 2003)

Children's Miracle Network Blue...
Heartbreaker played and sang with his guitar, before over 2000 at the fundraiser kick off in Orlando, Florida (2007).
(He was growing out his hair to donate for Locks of Love...I wish I had those curls!)

Some Dental School Blues...


A Kentucky Derby Princess Blue...
 Girly~Whirly, the other princesses and a cute, ittty-bitty princess. (2008)


Our son-in-law's UK Medical School blue...
Girly~Twirly and her Mr. @ an awards dinner, before graduation.2010)

&

 this is "K Week" at the University of Kentucky...
...where BLUE is THE color...

...well, except maybe for the Fork & Pancake (aka Heartbreaker) @ UK's Christian Student Fellowship Free Pancake night! :o)

**********

One more bit of University of Kentucky's K Week! 
This is the Chrisitan Student Fellowship's Water Balloon Fight!



Heartbreaker is one of CSF's student leaders. 
He was one of the Security team and 
you can see him dancing to start it off 
at about 00:51 seconds on the video. :o) 
(He had cut his hair in a mohawk).


153,497 Water Balloons
5,976 people
1 Guinness World Record!

Once again...here are the most recent drawing orders shipped and received.
"I recently saw some of your beautiful work displayed in my neighbor's home.  I would like to purchase something as a promotion gift."




"I received my order today!! It is beautiful!!  Thank you so much for the wonderful item."





*****
The following was ordered by a wonderful, repeat customer and friend since our days at Ft. Campbell, while her husband was a commanding general in the Army around the world and now working with USAA.

"...Opened it and the artwork is perfect. It is really a one-of-a-kind gift and I know that Marie will love it as a retirement gift from USAA. Thank you so much..."



*Reminder...
on my upcoming 100th post, 
I will be doing some giveaways 
relating to the Personalized Sketches art.*

Seriously, could your family be any more beautiful, talented, and oustanding? You should be (and I'm sure you are!) so very very proud. :]
Hurray for your getting to visit Hi soon! I would probably gain 20 lbs in a week, i would be eating so much! Yummmm!!!
I start my new job on Wednesday - am very very excited and grateful ~ all worked out wonderfully. Life is so good.
Much aloha!
