A Christmas Story!

I originally wrote this story several years ago to enter in a Christmas Story newspaper contest. It is a true story. I won the contest and each year I make sure to read this story myself again. Many of you have read it before.
However with the Holiday Season upon us I would like to share it with you again. I hope those of you who have read it before will be patient with me posting it as a link in a journal again this year and those of you who have not read it not can take the time to read and hopefully enjoy.

A Christmas Story

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you from Julie and Me.

Features and Challenges for week ending 10/3

I thought this would be a very slow week for us as far as challenges and features go because of our computer issues. Isn’t it amazing that we can talk about a slow week with one challenge placement and two features when not that long ago we were lucky to have this many recognitions in a month or even longer. Maybe our time at Redbubble has improved our art – at least we hope so. Thank all of your for your encouragement and friendship.

Hummingbirds In Action

This is a video I have prepared to share with you the sight and sounds of our hummingbirds. You can hear their chirps and the buzz of their wings as they fly around. You will also see that they are very aggressive. I think you can even hear the sound of them colliding with each other in mid flight. As you watch you will notice that seemingly the same bird returns to the same position on the feeder, you can tell this because they shot the same type actions again and again. I hope you enjoy this.

We have been Tagged!!

The group Core does a lot of interesting things with their Forums. One of them is to “Tag” a group member.
We had the honor to be “Tagged” this morning which means we were asked to introduce ourselves and give a little biography about ourselves and our artistic interests.
The Forum can be found HERE There are quite a few very interesting RB members who have been tagged and it is very interesting to read what they have to say about themselves and their interests.
HERE is a link to my “Tag” if you are interested.
This is a great group in several way so if you are not a member I suggest that you take a look at them.

Tucker Art

Carole Boyd has done an artist rendering of one of our Tucker images. Carole draws with her mouse using Microsoft Paint program. I can hardly imagine the patience and time it takes to do a drawing like this using your mouse as the tool. Carole said she spent over two hours on Tucker’s drawing.
See for your self, please!! She is a very talented lady.
