Don't have a photo of them back at school...

Girly~Twirly & Heartbreaker
Mr. B and I were up at my dad's for Thanksgiving. And so our three were able to have Thanksgiving dinner together. Our older daughter's hubby was working his residency shift at the hospital.

& here is a photo of Girly~Twirly (aka theluckiestmrs) & her Mr.
celebrating their 2nd anniversary on New Year's eve.
My hubby and I are back to our regular routine of work...
We still have our Christmas tree up, so will be putting that and the ornaments away.
I have today off from cleaning pearly whites :o) ...so I am working on more drawing orders, but came across some loose Christmas photos...which led me to looking at some other past photos.
...which led to me posting some of those photos here in a slideshow.
Thank you also for your patience on announcing the names drawn for the Personalized Sketches giveaways.
Like I have mentioned in the past giveaways of the art that I do...I would have loved to selected more to give. So, those of you who had left comments to enter and are not one of the following names that were picked (picked by the "not-fancy" method---by hand :o) ...I will have to look into the random.org method), please contact me if you are interested and those that left comments - I would like to extend 10% off of one drawing order.
These are the names drawn:
For one 8x10 single image of your choice: Permanent Posies's comment: "I would LOVE to win your drawing. I am torn because selfishly, I would want something drawn with my last name. But, I think I would have something drawn for a friend for mine who is graduating in May from Seminary as a gift. I so love your work."
For one of the 8x10 Calligraphic Monograms: Mrs. V's comment: "Hi Maria, Thanks to my Mom I am commenting on your blog :) I will post each additional entry separate as well! Thanks for hosting this, we LOVE the photo you did for us."
For one of the 20% off certificates: Cheryl's comment: "Wow! So many birthdays in December. How do you hold it all together? That family tree rocks!"
For one of the 20% off certificates: Alicia's comment: "I didn't know you had a FB page! Yay! I "like"!"
I try to share some past orders on each post, but do like to wait until they are received. ...and it takes me forever to get the samples in the format I like to share them in with the close-up and overall view together. I have more to post, but for now will share this one:
I received this email from a past customer: "
From Diki's email: "
