Happy birthday to me


Exactly one year since Illustration Friday set me on the path of blogging. And these are just some of the pictures that would never have happened if I hadn’t become a blogger. I've met some wonderful internet friends and I've admired work by talented people all over the world. I’m very grateful.

I couldn't tell from the post whether this was your actual birthday or only the one year anniversary of your new phase of art, but in either case, congratulations and all good wishes! It's been such a pleasure seeing your work over this past year.

Oh no I wouldn't be advertising that I'm another year older at my age - even though the blog is a year old I've stayed the same age.

Shirley, I used the Qoop poster making service in Flickr and then took a screen shot of the preview

Happy birthday Julie! What a fabulous collage. Yes, blogging gets you going with writing and pics. Beats housework!
I'm speaking to a women's group today, and may print out your pic and tell them about blogging! They want me to play the piano, get them singing but I need some jokes, stories and visuals as well.

Happy belated birthday - what a super collage! It must be so inspiring and gratifying to see all that you've achieved.
Love the IF too - are you allowed to use the word fat these days ;)?!
