N is for Nine!

Nine Years old...

Some photos of each of us when we were NiNe :o)
(I was thinking of other "N" my Numerous Nesting dolls (Russian Matroyshka and Japanese Kokeshi ones)...but I would have had to find all of them, since I have them packed thought this would be faster :o) and I hope to get linked up with

Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday meme of the letter "N.

Mr. B, Girly~Whirly and I were all December babies...and when we each started kindergarten, we were able to make that state's age cut off to we were all 4 years old when we started school.  Girly~Twirly and Heartbreaker started kindergarten at 5 years old.

Thank you again for all those that entered my recent giveaways....and thank you to the winners for contacting me. I have started on the ones that have given me the details of the ones that they chose to have drawn.
Here are some orders just shipped.

"Hi Maria! I wanted to contact you to place another order now that we have moved back from Germany. I would love to order an 11" x 14" Fleur de lis using the name Winters, calligraphy l'amour dans notre maison (translates to English to say love in our home). I also want to order an 11" x 14" welcome pineapple also using the name Winters, calligraphy WELCOME."



Thank you Cassie, for these of the fleur de lis and the pineapple. I love the quote you chose for the fleur de lis. And the pineapple is perfect for a Welcome, since it is the symbol for hospitality.

And Cassie's mom~ "Dr. D" requested:
"Hello Maria:  It has been a while since I ordered my last design.  It was for my son & new wife with the two doves holding a banner in their beaks with the 5 childrens names. My son & daughter-in-law love the drawing--so unusual.

So now I have a new neice and would like something unique.  My daughter...suggested a  princess crown/tiara for her.  The mom is definitely a princess and little Kyla will be as well.  Something which can grow with her over the years."

I truly appreciate you both for keeping my contact info or for finding me again.

Thank you, fellow bloggers, for stopping by and for all your comments. 
I look forward to returning your visits. 

(Oh! One more exciting thing...with the wonderful help of Kathie of Just a Happy Housewife, I was able to put up my facebook business page "badge" on my sidebar. Puh-leeze, feel free to click onto it, take a peek and become a fan! Thanks Kathie!)

Those pictures are pricless. Wish I looked that good at nine. I had buck teeth and glasses. Oh well. I think I got better with age. LOL

What sweet memories of your nine year olds. It was a great age - that fledgling independence, yet they still loved mummy and home!

Alicia said...

You always have the cutest flashback photos!

Such beautiful memories, Maria! I always enjoy reading your posts and admiring your awesome sketches.

Have a blessed day!

Jenny said...

You must have the most organized archive of pictures of anyone I know! I am always impressed that you can even find half the pictures you do!

And to find family members at nine years old just totally blows me away!

Thanks for a nifty link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "N".

Your family always makes me smile.

Thank you for linking.

This is a most perfect post for "N" @Alphabet Thursday! The photos are as cute as can be. I can barely remember being nine but I know it happened :)

Time really changes things and people. You were cute, but now everyone is beautiful and handsome. You have the best looking family I have seen in awhile. Glad to see your sketches are doing good. Always happy to see where you have dropped by.
