In my world

One day a few years ago I "met" a woman called Vic when she won a giveaway on my blog, we once got to hangout for a little bit while I played hooky from my stall at the craft show. We laughed, with Jess and Kate and talked Teddy bears and hugging and food and kids and craft and preserved bread rolls
I read Vic's blog and she reads mine and we chat and we sometimes hello or "like' on bookface. In my mind Vic is one of my friends - she is just one I don't see very often.
Recently on my blog I mentioned my obsession with Little Red Riding Hood .




Badabing badaboom !



So Vic, just whips up a work of art....does the redbubble thing and has it sent to me! I was (and still am) totally floored. I have no concept of how works like this are created and you all know I have no drawing genes at all, but you know, the time folks and the effort and the thought-that's what kills me. And yes I do tend to get a bit Oprah when talking about blogging and blog community , and yes I know the shitty bits, but on most days, blogland and the people in it and their complete unbound generositywill go a bloody long way to curing what ails you.



Vic, you are a damn fine egg .



Thank you, I adore it. It elicits smiles every time I look at it and today it is off to the framers!

  16. I agree, Vic is pretty wonderful! What a great gift. I also agree that about 99% of the time blogland is a pretty fantastic place. Oh, and you DO have drawing skills. As a refresher, see your own Storyboards, i.e., BAXTER.

  22. Yep, blogland has some really fine people. And yes, some very generious ones. I LOVE the Red Riding Hood painting. You lucky gal!

    I also like your drawings. There is something sweet and simple that I enjoy when I see your drawings of clocks, bowls, musical notes, and whatever props your cast of characters need. ;0

    Hip, Hip, Hooray for blogland!
