Loyalty is a Beautiful Thing


A month ago now (sorry to be slow Joanna), Food Gurly (I just love the name of her blog…very cute and witty) nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. This is an award that says “thank you” to those who visit your blog often, like your posts, comment, etc. Joanna has definitely been one of those people for me since the very beginning of us coming across one another’s paths. Thanks Joanna! This “food gurly” is great! Stop by and say hello…she would love it!

Instead of nominating all of you again who I did the first time around for this award (I do so appreciate each one of you), I thought I would take this chance to nominate a few bloggers who have rather recently found my blog, stop by often, leave encouraging words, etc.

Thank you….each one of you…having you stop by, like my posts, and comment has brought much encouragement my way!

Please do get to know these ladies and their blogs, if you haven’t already!

As part of the rules of this award, here are 7 facts about me (that you haven’t already heard…I hope 😉 ):

  1. Okay, so you already know about my graphic art and I have mentioned that I love doing animation, but you haven’t actually gotten to see that yet. So here are some of the things I have animated. I always love the challenge of creating something really fun and difficult! 🙂 I drew the first three myself and did the animation of course. The others I did the animation on and combined different graphic elements and maybe drew parts of them. Hope you enjoy these!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    LoriDroppinInLil LoriSmallerwormLilLoriAnimalsAtTheCrossLil LoriCatsAtPlay2Lil  LoriEarlEBirdLil LoriPoppingInLil LoriSneakAttackLil LoriSummerBeachRide2Lil
  2. Boots…I love them! I could wear them year round and am fortunate to live in a place where I can do just that…most days!
  3. Our cat is spoiled…she sleeps on a pillow three king sized pillows stacked high above my head in bed. It is a good thing we have a California King bed! 😀
  4. My hubby smeared cake on my face, in my hair, and in my ear on our wedding day…I tried to do it back to him but he was super smooth and swiped all the frosting off of the piece I got! Hahaha! I loved it! I would have been so disappointed if he just calmly let me bite into the cake! 🙂 He knows me so well!                                 Us
  5. I have a phobia of spiders….daddy long legs are the worst! (Yes, I know they are harmless…but I don’t appreciate a large hand sized spider who likes to sit on your face….yes, this has happened to me.)
  6. When my hubby and I were leaving for our honeymoon, one of the people who worked at the airport came up to my husband and asked him if I was the unattended minor traveling by herself… LOL! Really?!
  7. I am very expressive…when I get excited (even in public) I have been known to jump up and down and squeal! 😀

Last rule of the award- go tell the people who you nominated that you nominated them! 🙂 Here I go…

    • Thanks Joanna! I really love doing animation and miss getting to do it all the time! And thanks again for giving this award to me! 🙂 Lol about embarrassing your daughter….my mom does that to me too…and I am sure I do it to my hubby and friends. LOL! Actually, my hubby doesn’t seem to mind my excitement and silliness a bit! Grateful for that! 🙂

    • Thanks Malar….and congrats back to you! 🙂 I didn’t think I looked like a kid on our honeymoon, but I guess I did! LOL! My poor hubby! 🙂 I can still picture him looking at the person saying, “No, actually that’s my wife!” ROFLOL so hard!!


    • Thank you so much Arl! I appreciated your kind words about my animation…love doing it! Yes, it’s definitely fun to get to know each other!


  3. Congrats Lori. And a big thanks for nominating me 🙂 I really enjoy your blog. Loved the part about ur hubby smearing cake on u on wedding day. But husbands always escape such cake attacks :-). Coming to the spiders part, I live in Arkansas!!! We have different sprays for different varieties of spiders!!


  4. First, congrats on the award, Lori! Well deserved!

    Second, the graphics are so beautiful! You are so talented! I could not consider myself talented enough when it comes to anything related to drawing. If I will rate myself from 1-5, I’ll get below 1, haha!

    Third, the photo of you and your husband is so cute! Do you regularly slap each other with cake? 😀

    Fourth, your kitty seems to have a sound sleep every night. 😀

    Lastly, I am very expressive, too! And I can relate with doing that in public.

    I enjoyed reading this, Lori! 🙂

    • Thought you would get a kick out of this post Jhuls! You were so sweet to read it so thoroughly! Thank you my friend!
      I am so happy that you like my graphics!
      LOL about whether we regularly slap each other with cake. No, though we are both fun and silly so I see why you think we might. 😉
      Oh yes, kitty sleeps really well…us? Depends on whether she wakes us up with her whiskers in our face or not…lol!
      I can totally picture that you are expressive! You are on here!


  5. Congratulations on the award, Lori! I love your answers to he questions 😀 I also don’t appreciate any spiders. I’m expressive too, but not as expressive as you are 🙂 Oh and I love your animations 🙂 You really are talented!


  6. Congrats Lori! Enjoyed reading your answers and your graphics are really cute! You have been blessed with many talents! Thank you for nominating me…I will try my very best to participate.
