Site award!



A wise old owl sat in an oak,
The more he heard the less he spoke,
The less he spoke the more he heard,
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?

Great excitement today, I just learnt that a product that I designed for my newly created Zazzle shop has been featured for a TBA award. This means that it will be featured as one of "Todays Best". In case your wondering, the owl image was put onto an organic tee shirt, you can follow the link in the side bar for a close up, I cannot fathom out how to post the image of the product from the site without using the flash panel.

How many hours do we use up trying to keep up with the cyberworld? emails, websites, blogs, twitters, whatever next?

  4. Love the owl image Valerie. Also congratulations on the award.
    I know what you mean about spending hours fathoming how to do things - I have just found that I have posted today's blog on our family-only site and am now waiting to see if my son can tell me how to transfer it - or shall I have to post it all over again??

  9. Congratulations!

    And yes, the hours spent visiting all these portals is downright scary sometimes! On one hand, I feel so blessed to connect with other creative souls, but on the other hand, I need to limit my time on the computer, or there will be none left for creating!

    Your illustration is stunning. :)

  11. Congratulations on your award. I love this owl illustration. I'm new to your blog and have just finished reading it from the beginning. I was delighted to see you were the designer of the hedgerow fabric - one of my favorites. Your illustrations are wonderful. Thank you for sharing them with us.

  19. I find owls so appealing and am always captivated whenever I see one, although I haven't seen one in the wild for many years now. I refuse to join Facebook, Twitter etc. There just isn't enough hours in the day to keep up with it all. I struggle with my blogs as it is! x
