Animal Wednesday - a page for Lynn's book

I have been working SO hard these past few weeks, but it is all finally culminating in a two day meeting that I am running - today and tomorrow. So I came to the computer to tell you that I won't be visiting anyone for a few days while I get this done and start to get back to regular life.

But of course, logging on this morning I checked my blog roll and saw a post from Angelique entited "Welcome Home".

It's not like we didn't know this was coming, and coming soon and I am relieved that Renee is out of pain. But oh, so sad that she is really and truly gone from this world. She is one special lady and her "xoxoxo" and "har har" will be with us forever.

Love you Renee - you did more good in this world than you probably planned to. You changed people's lives and we will miss you so much.

(I wish I knew how to make a line of hearts like KJ does - so as to show a line/thought break. )


So...onto Animal wednesday! I preposted this last week so it may seem a bit out of date, but trust me - work has been all consuming for a few weeks!

Also, go check out this story on Jude's blog - I did a little donation for the donkeys.

Animal Wednesday Drawing

A Sweetness and Light drawing and then a Not-so-sweetness-and-light drawing. (don't take offence Deb - I don't mean that snakes are not lovely sweet animals - but just different than puppies and kittens...right???) These are for Lynn's ArtySoulSisters book have been mailed and (hopefully) received already.

I was going to post this for Animal Wednesday last week, but had such a good chuckle at the Dog-Eating-Dinner video that I posted that instead!!

Happy Animal Wednesday everyone! I hope all your animals are sweetness and light.

Best of luck with your meeting. I really like these pages. They are great. HAW

I am sorry to hear about Renee even though it is better for her to not be in pain any longer. Such a tough journey.

Susan said...

Hugs and peace to you and all friends of Renee, I wish I had known her.

Lovely illo Mim - I'm not posting for AW today, feeling lousy this week, some bug got me.

I know I have really missed something by not knowing Renee but it warms my heart to hear everyone talk about and admire her.

I saw your pages at Lynn's blog and they are so fun!!

Evidently I missed out on a wonderful person by not knowing Renee, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends for their loss at this time.

Love your illustrations today, they are magnificent! So intricate! Good luck with the meeting!

Lynn said...

My heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved Renee. I did not have that honor but have felt the love in the flames I have seen on so many blogs these past months.So sad to lose a good friend and one who seemed to have been such a bright light in so many lives.

Mim, you are a busy woman! I hope this meeting goes smoothly for you and I know we'll see you back here soon.

Yes, I love my pages you made for my book, I posted them as soon as they arrived (the whole book is done now) and in my hands. Wonderful work, all, and especially yours. Thanks so much.

Hugs. Hearts.

I'm so sorry to hear about Renee as well. It's almost like she and Layla Grace were connected somehow. Maybe they are hanging out together right now : )

marianne said...

I am so sorry for all of you having to miss your dear friend!
I am glad she is not in pain anymore......
She will be missed by so many of you. Hope someone with the same love is born on this day to take over her work here.

As for your pages.... LOVE them especially the snake one! What a gorgeous design!

I love these pages! And I'm blown away at how ours were so similar :)
Is that a little Emma under the blankies? I think it might be!

Hey, marianne just taught me the hearts...easy/peasy! KJ told me too but the way she makes them has more steps and I forgot them. hah!

alt and number 3!
When you release, the heart appears. I love it for emails because you can change the size and color of them ;)
HAW Mim. Slow down girl. We're here.

And I'm glad Renee is out of pain too. I found myself talking to her today.

I've thought about Renee a few times a day since she went into the hospital, but I just learned she had died from you. She and I were tied largely by a shared, and very dark, sense of humor. I'll get over to her site.

So sad about Renee, but happy she is free. Love your pages! I was going to tell you how to make the hearts, but lolo beat me :-).
