OMG, today I’ve been blogging for six years! 6!! In blog years, that's a heck of a long time. In cat years, it's even longer, like 42 years or something. Oi! :o))

This was my first blog post Geen Idee! (No Idea!) , and I really had no idea what I was doing (err, what "we" were doing).

"Thank you" to my readers, visitors and subscribers that have stuck with me and my cat(s) through the years ; your comments are always appreciated. It only took me 3 years to finish the drawing above (I am so slow), which is one reason I'm not an "everyday" blogger - saves you from having to comment!! *chuckle* lol

For the cupcake drawing I used:
  • Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils (not aquarelle)
  • Grafix Dura-Lar ~ acetate/drafting film/mylar (matte surface, med. weight) 
  • Plain white paper used for the backing only
So, here's to more artwork, pics, adventures and  at least another year of blogging!
 
 
tot de volgende keer (until next time),
Judy, and sometimes Sacha
