Springtime Studio Flowers

Hello there!  I hope you had a good weekend.  Here we have some practice pictures (I’m trying to learn how to use a new camera), of the pretty flowers I was given at the MFA show reception.  Thank you to everyone who gave them to me!  They were beautiful, and as a bonus, they eradicated the moldy slip scent from my studio.  🙂

I keep telling you I’m going to write and post pictures about the opening, but these images are all that’s ready right now.  The rest of the pics are on the way, though (for real this time!).  I edited them tonight but have a few to reshoot… so perhaps they’ll be up on Monday or Tuesday.

With no further ado… some springtime pour vous…

The Liebster Blog Award

Hello there people!  Where are you and what are you doing today?

The highlight of my day just came a few minutes ago, when I checked my blog and found out I’ve been chosen for a Liebster Blog Award by Camelhairandhoney, a funny and insightful blog about fiber, food, and art, written by artist, foodie, and farm girl, Abbie R. Powers.

Thank you, Abbie!  Read Abbie’s blog to get to know her lovely and talented artist self (including seeing what she makes and when you can take classes from her).  You’ll also learn about alpacas, find out how to make beer and grow radishes and celery, see beautiful photos, and more!

What is a Liesbster, anyway?  Here’s a little info about the Liebster Blog Award and what that means for me:

Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favourite. The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to talented and/or loved bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and to bring attention to these wonderful blogs!

There are a few rules that go along with accepting the award:

– Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
– Link back to the presenter who presented the award to you.
– Copy and paste the award on to your blog.
– Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs with 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed.
– Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.

Alrighty then, here are my selectees:

http://foundtext.wordpress.com/about/ A photographic collection of found text.

http://cityofwater.wordpress.com/ Architecture, infrastructure and the floods of Phnom Penh.

http://suninspired.org/ Six-month beach tour -or- ‘The Trip.’

http://ceridwensoup.wordpress.com/ Art, design, photography.

http://sixglassesofwater.wordpress.com/ Drawings, paintings, paintings, poetry, and short stories.

This award has made me feel like I should get my butt in gear and write and post pictures about the MFA Show reception.  I’ll put it on my list for tomorrow!  Tonight I’m having supper with two very good friends.  TTFN!
