Hi all!! I hope that you are all having a great week and enjoying reasonable weather where you are.

The lovely Polly from Angels in My Garden has tagged me and I'm meant to tell 6 weird things about myself........what only six!! It's so hard to know which six to pick. But I'll give it a go.

1. I love sugar in coffee but HATE it in tea.

2. I HAVE to put my socks on before my jeans or it doesn't feel right.

3. I love walking in quiet places, like the forest, in the rain (only with a coat on!!).

4. I like to soak with my ears under water in the bath (it drowns out the noise).

5. I love cheese on fruit bread...doesn't everyone?

6. When ever I have to do something I dread, I get myself through it by telling myself it's only going to last a 15 minutes, 1 day, a week etc and then it will be over. It's amazing...but it works. If I remind myself that something has a limit I get through it.

Ok, so that's my weird for the day!! I should pass this on to six people but as I'm weird, lol....I pass it on to all of you. Post six weird things about you..and come back and leave a link to your post in the comments for today, so we can all check out how weird you are!!!! Or if you don't have a blog...leave 6 weird things about you in the comments.

Guess what...I've been painting and drawing again..the digital kind. I have a tablet and pen but I just never have stuck with learning it properly. So I decided to draw with it and then out came the paint pot and the end result was I had great fun!!...I know, I know...I should be working..but....

I just started doing figures with drawing and then painting in the hair in Photoshop. I had such a brilliant but I'm not too sure about the results...could be I need a bit more practice with my brush strokes!! But I decided that the first two, which are little girls I would share with you all. They are quite large, 6 inches tall!! But that way you will be able to scale them down without loosing the details. Hopefully I will have a go at two little boys at the if you want this space!!


You can download the Two Little Girls here

It's time to go but I didn't forget to finish my challenge...more news of that next post!!

Have a wonderful day and be good to each other.

Hi, June,

This sounds fun. I'll have to go post to my blog.

The little girls are adorable! You are quite the talented lady! Thank you!

Grin.. my brain read number 3 as with only my coat on to start with !!

5 sounds normal to me we like cheese and fruit cake too. 6 sounds like an amazing piece of advise and something I should try !

Finally the girls look really sweet oh and did I tell you I used one of your papers recently along with my very first attempts at design. The results are on my blog..

Hehe - well I know I'm weird. I haven't updated my blog this month - had a flare up with the Fibro but hubby and I are running away tomorrow for a week so I am taking my trusty laptop and will hopefully be able to catch up on all everything.

Thank you for these lovely girls. I have a tablet which I have hardly used and yes .... I am taking that with me too.

Hugs, Keryn

I LOVE your sweet little girls. How talented you are, June. They look so much like my GD when she was small and I even made dresses for her that resemble the dresses on your girls. THANK YOU so much.

I, also, have a grandson so looking forward to the boys, too.

I put my socks on first. Can't do it any other way. LOL
