My left glove. Almost reminiscent of MJ's sequined white glove, because in the middle of the embroidered snowflake is an iridescent crystal. The gloves came with a matching hat and scarf that have sequins instead of crystals. I bought the set because one day I came out of the rec center after my water workout class, crossed the street where there are no street lights, and was nearly hit by a car. After scampering out of the way, and catching my breath, I realized that it was dark and I was dressed in black pants, black coat, and black hat. No wonder the driver didn't see me! So now I have white accessories, a flashing light on my backpack, and a new appreciation for glitzy clothing.

My blog is 3 years old.
It seems like yesterday that I held my breath and clicked the Publish Post button for the very first time.
3 years and 211 posts (and drawings!)
Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement. I wouldn't still be here without you. Help yourself to a cupcake.
These three cupcakes seemed an appropriate sketch to post for this occasion. The photo was for a monthly painting challenge over at http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/. I missed the deadline for that challenge, and I wasn't sure that I liked what I had done. The truth is that I don't like the extreme angle that the photograph was taken at. It made a great photo, but the sketch looks a bit awkward. Although those sprinkles were a lot of fun.
And it seemed serendipitous for the blog's 3rd birthday.
