G is for our Georgia home...


The military brought us to the beautiful area off the Georgia coast in 2004. 

We have taken so many, many photos since we first moved here,
but I decided to share some photos that show our Georgia home being built 
and some of the events during when it was built.

...and the next slideshow of our home is one that I had on a past post... 
(so some of you may have already seen this, but I thought it would be fun to see the "after")
Friends... the welcome mat is set out to greet you.
Come on in...
 Since this slideshow was first done, we have done a little furniture changing/rearranging...

Also...thank you again for everyone's thoughts, prayers, support during my dad's surgery and hospital stay.  He was able to go home Monday.  And he has family that will be taking turns to stay for the next several weeks. My hubby and I will be able to go up the week of Thanksgiving.


Linking on with:

for this week's letter "G".


Oh & here is a fun Blog hop...a great way to meet other bloggers!
(Hosted by Kel of Between the Lines, Survey Junkie, & Kindred Spirit Mommy)

I've done other state inspired drawings, but since this is a "G" post...
here is a drawing of the state of Georgia.

And here are some of the latest orders that have been completed and shipped out. 
Thank you to all those that participated in my Giveaways a few weeks back. 
These orders are from some of those winners and what they have to say.

Thank you for your order for your father-in-law. 
And please say thank you so much him for his military service!

  "I just wanted to let you know that I received the sketch today.  It looks great!!  I know my father-in-law is going to love it!  Thanks again for creating such unique and personal pieces of art!"

Angela from Sweet Tea Diaries
Thank you for choosing this for your Dad's Christmas gift.
Please let him know we appreciate his military service!

"Thank you so much for the amazing drawing! My mom received the package and was amazed by your work. She is having the drawing framed, and I can't wait to give it to my Dad for Christmas! Thank you again for everything!"

Angela from A Day in the Life
Thank you for your order of your Christmas gift for your mom.
This is Angela and her brother that is in the military.
Please let him know that prayers are lifted up for his continued safety.

 "I got it today! I love it! Thanks so much!!"

Thank you for your order of your husband.
It was fun to draw this exquisite Sevres egg from his beautiful collection.
Christine sent me this photo of the beautiful matting and framing she chose for it.
"I love my artwork! I can't wait to see John's face when I give it to him. I know he will be amazed because it is so unique and truly magnificent. Thank you so much, Maria!"

Thank you for your order for your son and grandson.
Wishing all the best to your son in his decision to go into medicine.

"Very well done and a perfect gift for my son."

And I hope your grandson enjoys his dragon :o)
"Looks great, and I know my grandson will love it."

There are some other orders to share, 
but I'll wait until they receive them in the mail, before I share them here.
And I am working on some more.

Oh! I also want to extend a big thank you to Veronica from Of Mice and raMEN
for featuring me on a recent post!
I love to see what fun things she finds!
So to be amongst some of the unique and creative finds out there,
I was honored and humbled.
Thank you for picking out some samples of the art that I do.

I'm so glad to read that your dad is on the mend. I'm sure he'll be very happy to see you at Thanksgiving and you'll be relieved to be able to give him a hug!
I have visited my aunt in Hinesville, Georgia and wonder if it is anywhere near to where you live.

Bummer that I couldn't get your photos to load as we are interested in retiring on the GA coastline possibly but so enjoyed your sketches! What talent!

Hi Maria, I am visiting you back from a moderate life. thanks so much for your visit. I am now following your blog. You are a wonderfully talented artist! My daughter is applying to art schools for college right now, so I know how difficult it is to get this kind of detail and quality. All the best! Alex@amoderatelife

Maria, your home is just beautiful. Stunning, really! Tell Mr. B I'm so jealous of his lawn skills! If only I could get mine to look half as good! ;)

As always, your drawing are breathtaking. I can sit here and just study each one, thinking "How in the world?... Man she's got talent!" Great job!

I am glad your post is usually toward the end.

It is always one of my favorite wrap-ups for a week of AT.

And this week is no exception. Your lovely photos and artwork are always a joy!

As Tony the Tiger would say, "You're GGGGGRRRReeeat!"

As I would say...


Mel Cole said...

Hi, I don't know if you still remember me but I came back here coz I miss to see your drawings. I love it. Super. I added you in my blog roll here

Miss Sweet Tea said...

Maria, you have a beautiful house! I am so amazed by the drawing you did for my dad! My mom told me it was beautiful, but I hadn't seen a picture of it yet. I can't wait to give it to him!!

Have a great weekend, friend!

Miss Sweet Tea said...

Oh and just a funny thought - of the drawings you posted here, one is with my last name, one has my first name, and two of the drawings are with my brother's names - John and Todd. I hardly see anyone with the name Todd!

Isn't that crazy that they all ended up in this one post??! Haha!!
