In Amore Veritas

How many ways are there to say Thank you?

Lots!!

Inspired by WordPress friends, I made a pencil sketch to do so.

Thank you dearest Robyn from THROUGH THE HEALING LENS for being my muse/model for this pretty sketch that is my Thank You card. Robyn’s graciousness is just a small part of why she is so inspiring to all of us who follow her.

UnknownYes I know I sure took my time (months for some) getting around to thanking everyone, but I still want to show my appreciation.

Yes, I know I don’t post my Awards on my sidebar.wordpress-family-award-1

I’ve been trying to keep it as clean as  possibles  so “Art Gowns” for Charity can be noticed and hopefully do some good.

For nominating me for Blog Awards (& other things) I thank:

Alexandra at Worldly Winds -Blog of the Year (and a coffee party invite I didn’t get to.) She has a book of poetry recently released, “Tipping Sheep (the right way)

Carolyn at ABC of Spirit Talk – Blog of the Year (and for a coffee party invite, and many other WP social events I have not had time to attend) and ReBlogging Ballroom Lux..

Eunice at Nuts For Treasure – Blog of the Year and more recently, Word Press Familyimages and her Reblog of THE HOT FLASH – Crimson Fox.

Lori  at Poetry Patio – Liebster Award – I’d also like to Congratulate Lori for her poem in the current issue of “Four and Twenty”short form poetry Volume 6 Issue 4, and for her ongoing success with “Barn Door” where you can see some very beautiful pics she’s taken of Roses.

A very extra extra special “Thank You”

To the most beautiful niece in the whole entire world, Sherrie at Pain in the Peg

Thank you for all the ReBlogs, not to mention you are one of my very few best friends and the most awesome Driver/Partner in Crime (especially for Muralling)

Look Sherrie! N took me for a ride yesterday and we found this Mural. It makes me think of you, darling.

Sketching Robyn for my Thank You card was a lot of fun. In the end I used a simple scan of the pencil sketch, but not until I tried other things.
As every experiment was an attempt at a card for all of you, I thought you might enjoy the creations.

      No shame for you about Thank yous. You are amazing, and Chez Chloe is a happening thing, I can hardly wait to see more.

  8. Oh Resa – first congratulations to you my beautiful dear friend. You are so deserving of these wonderful awards…your blog always feels welcoming and magical… your talent and creative genius sparkles! As for this animated version of me you have sketched for your thank-you card, I am honored, and in awe. I just cannot believe you only know me here in our blogland, and could create a caricature that reflects a certain side of me… a really happy side, that is eager to emerge, and revel in the joys of this life. Thank you my Love! ~ Robyn

  11. Oh, how lovely, Resa! I can’t draw (no really, I can’t) so I can’t return this form of thanks, but I would like to thank you too. You are such a joy and a wholesome (I mean that in the most lovely way) presence on the interwebs. You are a breath of fresh air and your talent and generosity move me more than I can express adequately in a comment! I will find a way, though, just wait and see…

  13. Your beautiful drawing contains one of the possible answers to the question: Smiling.
    Be happy!

    • Marcelo! How nice to see you! Thank you for saying my sketch is beautiful. Smiling and being happy is a great state of being!
      Marcello. I have started a Pinterest Account. I would like to have a board for photographs. Would you mind if I try to pin a couple of your photos there? Full credits and link, of course. If you don’t want that, I am fully okay and happy and will always adore your work.
      Anyway, I hope you are having a wonderful day and times. _ Resa xo

      • Thanks Resa I’m flattered and honoured for your interest in my work.
        Of course you can “pin” any of my pictures to your Pinterest account.
        Please, email me the link to your account.
        All the best!
