  1. Your art work is fabulous! What program do you use?

    Aw that’s sweet the nomination πŸ˜€

    I used to be punctual and I try to be – but alas usually late these day, mainly because I take time to look at friends’ blogs……… (YOURS)

    My husband and I relax at night by watching TV, nothing educational, and having a cuppa and dessert – two hours except one hour during NaNo month and one hour these days. One year when I had pneumonia and was home from work I tried to watch tv during the day, and failed. Also was the time before computers so I have no idea what I did with myself

    mismatched pajamas

    I’ve learned to walk away.

    I look in the mirror when brushing my teeth in the morning or inserting or removing my contact lens (one lens, the other eye had cataract surgery and doesn’t need corrective lenses)


    pee, what do you do?

    Yes and no.


    Only three?

    Haven’t thought of that in decades… Scarecrow cause I liked Ray Bolger

    Never counted

    thank you


    • Ha ha ha, thanks Sue, you beat me to it! But I’ve posted it on your blog anyway, just to be official like πŸ˜‰

      No program’s for my art honey, all mixed media collages πŸ™‚

      Lol, I wanted to make my questions more interesting, but I didn’t want anyone offended! πŸ˜‰

      What’s the first thing I do when I wake up? Go downstairs and make tea! Lol

      You are very welcome honey! πŸ™‚



  2. Your artwork is amazing! (I would love to see more of it. πŸ™‚ )

    Thank you for the nomination! It’s so nice to be recognized.
    I might have to pose the questions to some of my characters though, since I’m pretty boring myself. I have lots of shoes though. πŸ˜‰


  3. Thank you for the nomination! I will attempt to come up with something of interest to say – if that’s possible.

    I love your art work. You’re very talented. Even though I write, I’m not particularly creative or artistic and am in awe of people who are.


  4. Congrats, Vikki. Posted as a true Liebster ! The most telling insights into your personality are the eleven photos of your art work. A delightful collection of the inner workings of your creative mind. One of your questions tickled me … “What do you sleep in?” Ah, I look forward to learning how many sleep in the buff as it were πŸ™‚

  6. Loved it all and passed it along. So happy you found a way to make it all your own. Enjoyed learning more about you. Have a great week.


  7. thanks Vikki. I had every intention of replying to this properly today. I got half way through writing my response and Word crashed. Restarted, and yes! My words were still there. I finished the piece and Word crashed again. Restarted, and no! It had restored at the half-way point, I lost the second half of what I had written. I can’t face doing it again now. Sorry! Maybe I’ll try again when I’ve stopped being angry with my laptop.
