1. Ray Veen of Big Plain V posted a meme to post ten pictures of whatever from your hard drive. Look at his link to find the rules. I'm not going to post them, because I am not really following them closely. (I'm such a rebel!)
My photos are 1000 to 1 family. Then I have some of rockstars. And a few cool scenery shots I guess. I haven't really saved many photos for book research yet, but for my blog I've saved musician photos and some logos. As I perused my photo files and I came across this one that I saved years ago. I think it is really cool. So I am going to post it for my Whateva photo. But I'm going to break the rules and talk about it.
This is an illustration from Virgin Digital that depicts 75 different band names. For example, see the roses and guns in a vase? That would be for the band, Guns N Roses. The green square on the calendar? Green Day. And so on. I have never found all 75, I believe my number was 50 something. But I thought it would be fun to share with you all. What band name (s) did you find?
Here is bigger picture of it with a list of the answers. But seriously, try to find as many as you can before looking! I haven't even checked the answers, because I want to keep looking!
2. Kim Kasch nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award!! Thank you, my dear Kim! I appreciate the pat on the back! And since I am breaking rules today, I am going to give you a link to my seven things here!
3. I received good news this week. Ladybug magazine accepted a poem of mine to be published in a future issue! I was seriously close to tears when I read the email (I know, I'm a sap!), but I had been submitting them for a few years with no luck. I feel so honored to be able to say my poetry has been (well, will be) published with the Carus group.
