Sunday Sketches and a blog award - yeah!!

I decided today will be blogging day if it kills me or rather those around me lol  Morning cartoons are over so mummy now exists,  and to my kids think mummy and Cinderella are meant to be the same thing, HA!! mummy and troll-dragon are synonymous today ....well at least till I blog :)

For Sunday Sketches which our darling Sophia of Blue Chair Diaries is hosting is the sketch for illustration Friday's Deja-vu.  I hope to  be able to finish it before the IF topic changes but ... there is a lot of shoveling still to do :(

And now to the blog award  (had to do a bloggie double as I still got shoveling to do)

I got a blog ward --yeah!!!! Thanks Catherine of Illustrations and Fimo Characters  and Missy of Melissa Liban Illustrations for the Stylish Blog Award- luv you guys!!
Okay to fulfill terms of this award ( a good copy and paste here)
I need to :
Thank and link back to the person that awarded me.
• Share 7 things about myself.
• Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
• Contact those bloggers about the award!

Okay 7 things about myself 

1. I shaved my head completely about 18 months ago ( don't ask why). It took a hell of a lot longer to grow back! Won't do that again.
2. I love lasagna
3. I am the most terrible speller - I would die without spell checking.  When I was a kid learning to spell I told my mum I did not have to learn to spell because I would have a secretary - I did for a while then got married and moved.
4.When it is hot my allergies act up and I sneeze constantly once I am started.
5.My most desired object at present is a Wacom Cintiq.
6.Miss good cheese cakes.
7.Would go to a dentist any day over a hairdresser.

Now whizzing is award (potentially) all over the world....

I had to google the cintiq thingie... Hmm, I want one now!!

Love your sketch. I'm still struggling to come up with a topic for IF - this one is great!

Tammie said...

your sketch is wonderful, love her expression. shoveling is good exercise... if we don't hurt our back.

i have experienced a drop of 'rescue remedy' under my tongue to stop sneezing attacks (found in health food stores). It is good for all sorts of things.

Reflections said...

Congrats on your award, thank you for sharing with us a little about yourself.

Love your sketch... we got snow last week for the first time in about 14 years (for it to stick anyway). It was so much fun, I grew up in it, and miss the beauty of it all. Tho I must say, I do not miss the shovelling.
