  1. Annerose, thanks so much for the mention. I love #s 4 and 6 above about yourself. I too am lazy…sitting with my cat and coffee right now! In regards to #6…that sounds wonderful, but a bit scary to me! But, I bet the night sky is breathtaking!!

    • You’re very welcome!
      I used to tell people that sitting around thinking or looking out the window for a long time was just part of the art-making process. But I’m really just pretty lazy…
      It is wonderful to live in a somewhat isolated area, we have lots of wildlife, and a fantastic night sky, although it’s cloudy and snowing tonight.

      • Thank you from me too!
        I love how you describe your place of living. I am looking forward to living somewhere similar in the future. I do have several years in a larger city ahead of me, though.

      • You’re very welcome!
        There are good and bad things about living here. It’s very far from art… but the internet brings it closer…
        and sometimes we get stranded in the winter, when the snow is too deep and the road is not plowed.
        But sometimes it is so quiet I can hear my heart beat. And the noisiest thing is the ducks in the spring. (Not counting the train whistle). I’ve lived in cities too and they are very cool, but I’m so happy to be here!

      • I grew up like that! Fortunately, we still own that little cottage and I am definitely imagining (sic?) myself living there for great parts of the year in the future.

  2. Annerose, thank you for the mention and your exceptionally kind words!
    I’m looking forward to peeking in on the other blogs you’ve nominated when I have a few minutes.
    With appreciation,
    Karen. =)

  3. Thank you for thinking of me Annerose and you are right, I am not one for blogging awards or awards of almost any kind but I do like connecting with other creative beings 🙂 So your mention is most appreciate. All the best, Terrill

    • Yes it took me awhile to catch on to this connecting part of blogging. It’s been great, and very nice to meet you again on the internet!
      And all the best to you
