Stylish Blogger Award

Susanna was so sweet and selected me as one of the bloggers she passed the "Stylish Blogger Award" on to.  Thank you Susanna!  This is a fun way to learn more about your fellow bloggers and to pay tribute to the blogs you enjoy. :)  To pass it on you just post seven things about yourself and send the award on to 15 bloggers.  Here it goes:

1.  I believe singing and dancing can shake off any bad mood.
2.  Reading calms my soul.
3.  My dog has taught me so much about how to just be in the moment.  Go Saddie, you are a zen master!
4.  Drawing and creating crafts are one of my favorite past times.
5.  I love to play guitar and sing.
6.  Writing the old fashioned way - pen and paper - is just plain fun (I love handwriting, it is beautiful).
7.  Last but not least I love to spend time with my family and friends.

And now the fun part!  Time to pay tribute to some fellow artists whose work I love!

I am passing the Stylish Blogger Award on to:
*Check them out I know you love their art! :)

If you decide to participate make sure to pick  up the Stylish Blogger Badge on the left.  -Thank you Melissa for the badge info!

My resolution is to accept all opportunities in 2011 with open arms! :)

I used hot press paper for the first time and love it!  I received 3 blocks of it for Christmas.  I really like the way the watercolor shows up when scanned and how much easier it is to draw and outline on.

Hope your year is off to a great start! :)  Thank you for all your wonderful comments.
