On a roll. . . .

. . . .not my drawings, but for my blogging three days in a row.  I can't tell you how much I do not enjoy blogging.  I guess it's because it actually involves me sitting at the computer . . .and typing.  Don't get me wrong, I'm NEVER at a loss for words.  Trust me!  Anyone who has ever met me, or talked to me on the phone, certainly knows that.  I have people tell me ALL the time.  . . .'take a breath'!  LOL  Oh well.  I guess that's just the way the good Lord made me.  You know, he doesn't make mistakes.  <wink>

Does anyone hate cold weather as much as I do?  I'm SO ready for spring.  It was suppose to warm today here in Virginia, but it didn't quite make it.  I was so disappointed!  They say it's suppose to be in the 60's and 70's by the weekend.  Let's hope that they get that forecast right.  I see the top coming down on the Mini if it does.  May even take Bella out for a right in the country.  (Just had another idea for a sketch.  Can ya guess what it is?)

Well, as you can see by what I was journaling yesterday, I was certainly thinking about spring. It can't come soon enough for me.  Well, the temperatures, at least.
The sweet sound of the birds and the blooming of new flowers.  I think spring is probably my favorite season, because of all the 'newness' that it brings.  And can I just tell you, that even though I have allergies, there is nothing like the smell of a freshly mowed lawn.  I just love it.

I know that I am only on day three of my journaling, but I am really enjoying it.  I have found in just three days of sketching that I come up with more ideas while aimlessly doodling.  The problem is deciding which image to complete and put in the shop first. Decisions, decisions.
Question. I know that these images are very similar, but would you like to see both of them in the shop?  I can't decide.  I tried to put a little saying with them as well, to kind of set the mood while I sketched.

Well, I don't want to take up too much of your time.  I've already said to much.  Imagine that.
I did want to tell you though, if you haven't been to the shop since yesterday morning, one of the journal entry sketches is now in the shop. A No. 2 Pencil and a Dream.
Which image do you think will hit the shop next?  I bet you can't guess!

Well, until tomorrow. . . . . .

And as always, feel free to leave me suggestions or drop me an email.  I'd love to hear your ideas.


  1. I think the friends followed by the next for spring

  2. Hello for the last time today! :<)

    We have sunshine here and weather in the high 40's in this part of WI - my kind of winter! I would send you some if I could! Love the sweet images - what if you had the bird on a branch to her high left and she is looking up at him and listening to him singing? :<) Take care and have a wonderful day!

  3. Love them both Cheryl...My fav is first one. I also like Barbara's suggestion about looking up at bird singing! :)

  4. I love them both so it would be hard to choose just I say go for it and add both...LOL


  5. You know me mz Cheryl! BOTH PLEASE!!! huge smile here!
    these would be perfect for thinking of you, missing you. Happy Birthday thoughts.. endless possibilities.
    I really love the window idea. maybe bandit could be looking out the window with her, or bella.. just a thought!
    Oh, I have the vision of Sally in a car with Bella, just enjoying the day driving! Awesome inspiration! you have my imagination realing:)

  6. Oh my Ms. Cheryl these are some good ones! I really like them both and wouldn't want to choose a favorite. they are equally as cute. I like Judy, thought of thinking of you, missing you, etc... lots you can do with them. to cute I do say my dear!

  7. I feel the same way about blogging, and you know I can hold my own with you on the talking. I think it's that we feel if we're actually writing something for many others to read, it ought to be profound. I couldn't pick, but either one works great.

  8. Definately both, love them! You wouldn't like it here in Idaho, lots of snow lately and COLD...loving it! ;)
