I received the Versatile Blogger Award from my dear friend and wonderful artist, Sadami.  She named me as 10 bloggers to follow who have supported and encouraged and inspired her!  That is something, consider she inspires me all the time - she works so hard and is so creative, as well as being upbeat and positive 99% of the time - and she pushes herself to get better in every aspect of her life.  I am very much looking forward to seeing her children's book and her paintings for that later this year (a huge undertaking and I hope one that brings her much success).


Here is the award medal:

And here is what one must do to follow along with the "game":

(It is the decision of each person to continue or stop the game.)

You say a few words about the person who sent you the award and a little about yourself. And... 
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. 
  •  Include a link to the peron's blog. 
  •  Tell 7 things about yourself.
  •  Select 10 blogs and tell a bit about each blogger. 
  •  Nominate those 10 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
I've already told you about Sadami and I'm sure many of you follow her blog, too - but if you don't you should!  Just go here and subscribe/follow.

Thank you, Sadami, for including me!!  I know this takes time and effort and, like you, I don't want to be exclusive in any way, so I'll just tell all of you to go to my sidebar and visit all of the blogs there for some outstanding artwork!  Any of the ones I have on the sidebar are my favorites and I visit them often.  You may fall in love with one or two or more, too!

7 Things about Myself:
1.  I am married to my Sweetie, the best person I know and I am so lucky he chose me.
2.  Sweetie and I like to visit places where we can kick off our shoes and walk in the sand so anywhere with a beach is high on our list to visit.  
3.  I began painting in watercolor 13 years ago and have had paintings in many regional and local juried shows as well as in many group shows with my local watercolor society.
4.  I love birds of all kinds, small and big, short and tall, colorful and brown; and crows seem to hold a special place for me although I'm unsure why except that they are smart and brave.
5. Walking in nature eases my mind and heart and inspires me.
6.  I read a lot.
7.  I am a true chocoholic and it's a struggle to stop myself from eating a whole bag of chocolates instead of just one or two pieces at a time.

I always love when a blogger I follow tells me a few personal tidbits about themselves, Rhonda. I know you visit beaches a lot and paint a lot of birds so am not surprised at all. Now the chocolate issue??? Color me shocked!! LoL

Congratulations, Rhonda. A well-deserved honor. I agree with CrimsonLeaves about loving to find out information that helps you to know someone a bit better. What a delightful post you wrote!
