Lovely Blog Award


Thank you Suzy Henderson for nominating my blog.

Seven random facts about me:
1. I met numerous talented writers and artists through my blog.
2.  I enjoy reading books from fiction to software. I read the Gimp Bible, Inkscape book and an Invent Games with Python.

3. I registered to take An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python course through Coursera.  I  am attending Rice University.  The course is free and this knowledge will help me explore making video games.  In my second week I have explored boolean values and made a mini text program with a variation of rock paper scissors lizard Spock.

4. I am a fan of GIMP software my latest artwork, Guinevere was done in in this software from start to finish.  I used airbrush at varying levels of opacity.

5.  I think I learn something new everyday. I am living in an allergy garden.  Why do I say that?  I am surrounded for miles in every direction by sagebrush which is related to ambrosia, also known as ragweed.  You would think with a name like ambrosia, food of the gods,  would be a super food.  Where is ambrosia?  It is here...ah...choo.

6.  I like making music from candy box, keyboard or virtual instrument.

7.  I opened a new zazzle store and you can see some of at my deviantart gallery.  I have designed tee shirts, kindle cases, pillow cases, ipad cases.

I have the pleasure to nominate 15 bloggers for the lovely blog award.  If you choose to accept name who nominated you with their link, tell 7 random facts about yourself and nominate at least 15 other bloggers and post the lovely blog award pic in pink!
One note, I wanted to mention these ladies and some of their accomplishments and that means more than one link.
