An Award from Soulbrush

I'm not sure how many awards my friend Soulbrush has given me this past year, but I do know I'm grateful for every one of them, deserving or not. Thank you dear friend, I'm honored ( and blushing ) again.

I don't often play by the rules. I may pass it on to fewer or more people than required, but lately what I like to do is just post it here for the taking because I value all of you and the time you take to stop by. Some of you leave comments, others just pass through quietly. For both, I'm grateful.

I'm always surprised when people say my words or images move them. Primarily self-taught, I draw and paint what I feel. The same goes for the words I put down. I may not be eloquent, but I say it the best way I know how~from my heart. I don't think I'm a good writer, but I feel I'm a good story teller and one who speaks her truths and experiences. I love sharing them, especially if my art and words can help in some small way.

So please, all of you take this award. I know you blog because you have something to say and share with others, so for that you can claim this award and pass it on as you see fit.

Thanks for stopping by and giving me a reason to share what I draw, paint and write...from my heart.

If you do choose to pass this award along, please see the rules posted on Soulbrushes blog.

And please stop by Scholastic Scribe to see the long list of winners, and don't forget to add your name!

  3. Hi there,

  4. So wonderful! I really like the design and reason of this award... will be posting it on Flying Colors :-)

  5. KJ, yay you made it to the West coast!! I still can't believe we'll be too far away to meet.

    I hope you have a wonderful time here. We're having lots of rain on the peninsula. Hopefully, you'll have sunshine down south :)

    have a blast my friend!xo

  6. Very funny -- not a good writer, yeah right.

    I love that you lived in Winnipeg. Don't ask me why, but I love it anyway. I always felt a connection so maybe that is it.

    Notice I have great taste in the blog I am visiting right now. har har.

    Maybe you can tell us all about your animal doctoring one time.

    Love Renee

  7. Renee,

    You can find out more about what I do under "My Other Places" bottom right in my blog.
    The Mugu Memorial Fund may say it more concisely. I forgot that I recently changed the "about me" blurb which used to say what I did for work.

    Nope, I'm not a good writer IMHO :)

    And I love that you consider this a blog in good taste!

    The connection is more than Winnipeg. Some just have it right away ;)

  8. Wel add so much soul to our little artistic blogging world...XO
