Follower Appreciation

Blog Links

I wish today was FRIDAY because then I could title this post “Follower Appreciation on Friday”.  I like alliteration statements.  I had to look this up…. it means “words that start with the same letter or sounds”. 

But here at DD and D (draw doodle and decorate) we don’t always do things in order, the perfect way, or the way one would expect.  After all, last week I posted List It Tuesday on Wednesday.   And even though Decorate is in the title of the blog, I haven’t decorated anything since last Christmas.   All I can say is it’s nice being my own Blog Boss (love this word combo cuz I get to use alliteration….again!! ).  As you can see almost anything goes here.  I’ve got enough to keep track of in my “real life” that I don’t want this blog to be a place that I “have to” post on, or apologize for not posting enough, or ranting about our president and the economy….you know those types of things.  Life’s just too short, and we are all busy and we all understand.  Enough said.

I probably don’t thank you Followers/ Commenters (is that a word?) enough here….because you guys are so nice, and I’m so flattered when you leave a comment or decide to follow.  I don’t think a follow-up comment of just “Thanks” says enough of what it means to me.

So without further adu, here are a few neat sites that have actually linked back to me.  All I can say is these people are so creative and inspiring.  It’s nice to see people having fun with all the pictures/ designs/ blog articles/ art/ doodling and drawing…’s just plain neat to meet you!

  1. All I Did Was Listen- by Rachel…..beautiful drawings and living insights here.
  2. Artsyville- by Aimee…..Absolutely loaded with tons of fun and creative art to see at this site.
  3. Cathartic Creativity- by Dawn…..lots of Art journaling, Painting, Drawing, Book suggestions and other inspiration here.  And this lady knows what she’s doing with her camera!
  4. Daisy Yellow- by Tammie….OMG!  She oozes with inspiration and art.  Make sure you have a few hours to spare before you stop by her site.
  5. Defining Me- by Lee…..Beautiful Drawing, Beautiful Paintings, Beautiful Journals… over you’ll see what I mean.
  6. Faerieacres…lots of fun art journaling projects, sewing projects, zentangling……you get the picture.
  7. iHanna- by Hanna… of my very first blog loves…..Again, INSPIRATION OVERLOAD here.  You will find yourself returning again and again to this site.
  8. Judy McCarthy's Drawings- by Judy…….if you zentangle or doodle you won’t want to miss this site.
  9. My Quest- by Elena…..Wonderful pictures and funny stories to go along with them…..She always posts the best quotes too!
  10. Pumpkin Delight… will want to start cooking and baking and EATING after you see the enticing goodies she prepares.
  11. Sue Doodles- by Sue… most favorite “Doodler of All”
  12. The Daily Doodle- by Warren…..this man in on a mission and he WILL accomplish it……Go and Submit your doodle for his World Doodle Challenge (you've got to help him get to A Million Doodles)
  13. Wild & Precious Life by Chel……so much talent wrapped up into one blog…..she journals, she makes her own polymer beads, she draws, she writes, she_____ … name it!
  14. Zendoodle- Wege…..I go just to look at the ZenDoodling because unfortunately I can’t understand a word of German.  Verdammt !!
p.s.  If I’ve missed somebody and you want to be included on my next Follower’s Appreciation post.  Please email me and I’ll include you next time.

First off, that graphic at the top is just plain adorable. Second, thanks for all the new blogs to check out! I already subscribe to folks like iHanna and Daisy Yellow, but I can always use more inspiration. (My RSS feed reader is groaning under all the strain.) :) Third, I just wanted to come out of the woodwork to let you know that I read your blog too. I'm not asking to be linked to - my blog is more of a mishmash of stuff than specifically an art blog - but I just wanted to wave hello. :)

aimee said...

Jeanne Nelson said...

Eden, Thanks so much for the links. I find such wonderful people through the links I find on blogs such as yours.

Love your "title" pic!


Phine said...

Thank you very much for listing my blog :-) ! (What a flattering surprise…)

Because of the huge community of English-speaking tanglers and doodlers I included the google-translater in the sidebar ;-) .

I love the idea of being my own BLOG BOSS! Love your site, decorating or not...keep up the great work!

Eden said...

Thanks for all the nice comments, YES it's all about LINKS in the bloggyville isn't it?

@melydia- on my way to say HELLO :D, glad you're out of the woodworks now :D

@Phine- I'm so glad you told me about the translator, I've never used it.....I may be able to learn a few German words now when I visit you :D

@SE Minegar- way cool Giveaway.....just submitted my comment

Dawn said...

YOU are SO darling, Eden!!! I think you created two more people who followed me today!!!


How did you know I needed a grin today?

(PS: I hung up your card on my inspiration board)

Serena said...

What a great pic idea! Eden, this is a wonderful way to spread the love and acknowledge all the wonderful bloggers out there. I will check out the links for sure ~ :)

young-eclectic-encounters said...

I checked out your list- thanks so much I enjoyed it. When I got to zendoodle I was able to use Google translate to read it in English. I have Windows 7 and I have a pop-up that comes up automatically, but it would be worth finding out how to do it on your computer'

The Original Drama Mama said...

Aaaaw, way to show the Link Love! (see what I did there for you? I'm a sucker for alliteration too). I had just posted my list for today when I started in on a few chores and decided I needed to add one more role to my life: Vacuum Vixen. :)
I plan to go check out all the sites you listed, they all sound great!

Penney said...

OMG! I've been stopping over off and on checking out your sketchbook project work (which is amazing btw!) so imagine my surprise when I see a link to my blog! Ahhh! That was very nice of you.
I haven't been in the blogging mood as of late...spending more time in the art room than on the computer. This is link might be the kick in the butt I need to get back to it! Thanks!
The other links are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
