    Question mark cucumber Well, hello there!

    It’s been quite some time since I’ve updated my blog with a “regular”, non-giving-something-away, real honest to goodness words from my own mouth kind’a post. So here it is!

    This summer has flown right by. Once I put my garden in the ground, things picked up. I’ve signed back on with EWebscapes as a freelance designer so I’ve got a few projects going on there, a few on my own – and then toss in a weekly giveaway, children at home and bored, a husband who is on active duty with guys overseas, a complete gutting & revamping of my studio space, a couple of road trips, tons and tons of PICKLES, planting an insane amount of daylilies at our Church and OH YEAH, I can’t forget about Facebook!!

    And that about sums it up.

    You’d think that with all of this, I’d have lost a few pounds this summer right? Wrong. Add that to my pile of “things that frustrate me to no end.” I wait, for school to start – and I hope that things become “normal” again. What, pray tell, is normal to me?? Will I even recognize it? I wonder.

    Today, I decided to stop for a few minutes. To give you a glimmer of hope that some day, I will write again, I will write more often. As my time over the summer is so short, I am finding that the little space that Facebook provides for status updates is just enough to keep my creative spark alive, and it makes me anticipate the time I will be able to sit down and craft a fun and creative story to share.

    My weekly custom portrait giveaways are also giving me exactly what I need each week to stay creative as well. It is not a large investment of time, and I still feel very committed to it – 34 weeks in and I still enjoy it, giving that piece of time to someone each week is extremely fulfilling to me, and so I shall push on through the end of the year!

    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support through the years and especially during “dry” spells, where stories are sparse and my weekly drawing is your only eye candy until the next week. I cherish your comments and e-mails and, well, thank you. So much. Because I know you’re busy too, and that you understand but don’t forget. I love you for that.

    On with the day now – and don’t forget, it IS Friday, and this week’s custom portrait giveaway will close at around 5pm tonight!

    p.s. Like my veggies? They are so sarcastic this year.

    Oh Leanne! I’ll miss your blogging (although I feel very bad for not always commenting!!) You’ve done good by giving away that custom portrait, my God, they’re beautiful!

    And your veggies? I still can’t believe they’ve inherited your creativity!

    Sarcastic veggies? Oh, you’re so fortunate! Most of us either have to make do without anything homegrown or resort to buying the non-conversant sort from the grocer.

    I look forward to you blogging more. I love your writing. But, life can get busy and it’s understandable.

    hey, zucchini would deffinetly do a lot of good, oh, calalloo does not really grow like spinish, just mostly taste like it but kind of sweet. Its just a single shrub plant with with a soft, jucy stem, you cut the stem and the root will grow new stems, good greens all summer. But hey, why are we turning a drawing blog into a veggie blog? :rofl: :lol: Anyway most of my week was spent trying to build a site that may someday be as wonderful as yours, http://www.drawing-is-fun.com. hey more comments later.have a good one.
