24 August 2009 46 comments

I've been sick with the flu all week but started to feel better yesterday finished Mariuca's Portrait..
I'll go on with Mariana's Portrait this the two mini portraits should be ready to mail off by the end of August....

Charlotte (aka Madonna) with Alexander (aka Joker) and her cousins Olivia (aka Harlequin) and Michael (aka Peter Pan) at Charlotte's 18th Birthday Party (fancy dress) last weekend

    I was so glad to hear from you. I am glad you are feeling better.

    I was down yesterday and had a sore throat. I still don't feel exactly right but the sore throat is gone and I hope that is a good sign!!

  • Jackie 24.8.09

    Marzie's portrait is just wonderful! I know she is so so excited!!

    Charlie's party looks as if you all had a grand time!

    How terrible to get sick the week of your birthdays!!

  • Jackie 24.8.09

    I love love love your pick for this week on MM!!

    You guys are so lucky and so are almost every other country other than us when it comes to YouTube.

    I find so many videos posted that are restricted to us for use. I suppose it is the FCC over here.

    My pick this week is not typical for me at all. I am sure many will be very surprised.

    I hope you have a grand week and welcome back!! We all missed you so much!!

    Happy MM and big hugs,

  • Lynda Lehmann 24.8.09

    The portrait of Mariuca looks great, as does the view from your balcony! (Can I come over for the parties next year? lol...)

    Alex looks so scary as Joker. Did you do his makeup or did he do it himself? Very dramatic!

    Sorry to hear you had the flu but glad to hear you're feeling better, Kim. I always miss you when you are longer between posts.

    I LOVED the movie "August Rush!" Truly an inspiring film!

  • John M. Mora 24.8.09

    lovely portrait and clearly the choppy subjectg is delighted....great.

    Cannot wait for M's portrait.

    The guests and the setting and cake all look inviting - what a view - I am jumping on a Quantas plane soon....Foster's and cake holiday....

    I like that movie - August Rush...just saw Twilight and really liked it.

  • Jackie 26.8.09

    Did I ever tell you that I am pretty sure I am a hypochondriac too? Guess who is coming down sick this week?

    Oh I am dragging Kim!! I am going to finish up this little project and then head back to bed.

    I just want to curl up with my kitties and Mollipop on the sofa and watch t.v.

    But, first I am here to deliver you 2 awards. I know the award thing is difficult for all of us that run artistic no rush or worry.

    I just wanted you to know that I thought of you.

    You can tell I am not right by the way I spelled French. I took French in college and passed!!

    Oh boy I forgot Amy. when you get around to it. Please pass this along to her also. I have really come to love her.

    She is just so super!! I hope you are still feeling better and have a great day!!
