~ Beau Bunny, Artful Blogging, One World One Heart

Although Beau Bunny is one of my creations, he has really taken on a life of his own. When I see him, he is just himself and I sometimes forget where he came from. The nice people at Somerset Studios, Artful Blogging, etc., send out copies to the people who have pictures and articles in their magazines, so I had the magazine for a few weeks. But it is still fun when you see it at the bookstore.
We went to Borders to look for some books, and as I was looking at the magazines, there was the new copy of Artful Blogging, and Beau Bunny in the article about Lisa and her vision and accomplishment of the One World One Heart Event. If you click on that link you can see over 400 blogs that participated.

I know it made Beau proud to be featured in this way as a part of something so special. The event was just amazing and Lisa worked so hard on it.

Sweet Daughter's new home is coming along. How do people ever have the energy to move? I have no idea. No, the kitchen cabinets are not painted. They will be someday, but I'm running out of steam at the moment. The master bedroom took 4 coats of paint and it has very high ceilings! Silly me, if I had known it would be so hard to cover the old color, I would have used a primer first, maybe. Maybe not. The smell of paint ,let alone primer is really awful to me these days. The newer eco paints are so much better, but they won't mix other brand colors in it, at least not at this store. The living areas all are open to each other with a medium taupe color. Not a great color, but the ceilings are too high for us (me!) to paint this area. So it will stay as it is for now. It's not terrible and the rugs and few furniture pieces go well enough with it. It's exciting to see it come together for Sweet Daughter. She sure has worked hard for it. Thank you so much for your kind & good wishes for her. You are wonderful!

    Beau is just beaming in the Artful Blogging issue!! You should be VERY proud of him AND you.. what an amazing and wonderful accomplishment that Lisa and everyone who participated achieved! Blogland is indeed a very special place. I'm so glad your baby girl is doing great and enjoying her home so far. I know what you mean, I hope I don't have to move for a very looooooong time! It is such a tiring experience and I can't imagine how we did it so many times before when we were "young".
    Love to you,
