#AprilA2Z Art Sketching through the Alphabet “G” + #BoTB results


Hello, Kitten & Dawgs!  I’m delighted you joined me for the next A2Z alphabet prompt. Daddy’s Little Girl always gets to me every. single. time I hear it. Having two little girls…okay they aren’t too little anymore bring more happiness than sorrow.  My lovely little girls grew up and became lovely young ladies but they’ll always be little girls in my heart and if you’re daddy well then…I don’t need to tell you how special little girls are, right?  I’m going with girls as in little girls for my inspiration in art sketching through the alphabet with the letter “G”.

My little girls were the best of friends with only 23 months separating them and as they grew up they kept that sense of closeness most of the time but like all sisters, they have their ups and down. In their hearts, they know the other is still her best friend and that’s the way it should be.

I think little girls like being a girl at heart no matter what her age. Heck, I still refer to myself as a girl! It makes me feel gleeful.  Ladies, do you like thinking of yourself as a girl? What about you guys, do you call your lady a girl? Does she like being referenced to as a girl?

Drawing a human likeness is tricky. I need a lot of practice, especially with children.  I took a second stab at sketching little girls.  This time at school on the playground.

Playground accidents happen. I took my share of tumbles when I was in playing tag or jumping rope and I remember in those early years always wearing dresses, too.  I don’t think I started wearing pants to school until about grade six.  I know public schools used to have a strict dress code.

Hopefully, what I share with you every day will encourage you to do something that interests you that you’ve long put off because like me you just don’t think you can. My advice is, just do it! Maybe, you’ll be surprised. I know I was! 🙂

Do you have any great “G” sketching ideas? Make this gal giddy leave your suggestions in comments!  😀

Before I go, I need to share the results in Apr. 1st BoTB.  I enjoyed both angel songs but I loved the soft more mellow tone of Great White. Any other time or any other song between these two bands, then I’d probably side with the other.  For those who voted or just visited, then it probably was clear from the get-go that my listeners favored one band a great deal and won’t be a giant surprise that Breaking Benjamin gets the glory in this round with a 8 to 4 victory.



I’m heading off to link up with other fellow AtoZers and you’re invited to come along.  I’ll see you Monday on the dance floor with Monday Mewsic Moves Me (theme: Grammy Hits the year you turned 18)  as well as my next installment of Art Sketching through the Alphabet!

Have a good weekend!

Featuring Ernie Halter!

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! I find it flattering every single time someone follows me on Twitter first. It’s nice when that happens, don’t you think? Anyhow, last week a new follower popped up on my radar and what do you know this guy is a Nashville mewsician. That’s like almost right in my backyard! I don’t think I know him by name, that’s nothing new-to-me and his voice has a nice quality sending out nothing but soothing vibes.

Allow me to introduce to you if you don’t know, Ernie Halter!

This American singer/songwriter is known as the “Cuboslavian” because his mother is Cuban and his father is Yugoslavian, but I bet you figured that out for yourself already.  Born in the Golden State in 1974, Halter began playing piano at age 8, guitar at 14, and songwriting at 16.  The Beatles, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder are a few oldie greats to influence Halter’s music style. He’s recorded several albums and toured all across the US sharing the stage with Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, and others. Something cool I learned from his site is you can hire him to write a song for you or for that hard to buy for person. Another neat thing I learned is some weird, fun facts about Halter. He writes:

I’ve never broken a bone, been stung by a bee, or had the chicken pox, and I’m the possibly one the greatest parallel parkers on earth and have pictures to prove it.


I have to admit I’m impressed with Ernie’s parallel parking skills and definitely has reason to pat himself on the back. Take a look at this…


I couldn’t resist sharing that funny video with you. lol Alrighty, it’s time to get your Monday Mewsic Moves Me groove on, so follow me for a little jam session with Ernie Halter! 😉





Do you dig Ernie’s style? Then show him a little love today by visiting his site and following him on Twitter & Facebook! That’s a wrap for today. Thanks for dancing with me.  Now, let’s keep the party going. It’s time to link up and join the fun with XmasDolly!

Have a tunetastic week!

Daddy’s Little Girls #AprilA2Z #music

Daddy’s Little Girl s a favorite at weddings for the father/daughter dance. The lyrics and music was written in 1906 by Robert Burke and Horace Gerlach. The Mills Brothers recorded the number in 1950 and other artists have covered this song, but Al Martino’s 1967 version is my favorite.

Darling Daughters and Daddys

I’m here, I’m here Miss Jenny!  Yes, I’m late – as usual. But…but…my alarm clock…pleeease, don’t wag your finger at me, Miss Jenny. Okay, I know it’s an excuse…yes, a bad excuse.  Oh, NO! Not the corner, again? WAIT, I do have a VERY good reason why I’m late, though. Just hear me out, ok?

You see, I was extremely busy on a new assignment from another class. No, no –  your class is just as important, Miss Jenny!

I really could use some help on this one, though.  This is my very attempt at such a lesson. Miss Liz said, I need others to participate in my assignment to make it work. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun to do and I would love to share the same fun with my classmates today, if you don’t mind.

Here, take a look at  My Memories Digital Scrapbook Software Review & Give-Away Promo and let me know what you think.

What, you’re not a mad at me, Miss Jenny? Thanks!!! Here’s my assignment for the letter…

The danting tasks from last week’s Thanksgiving preparation has now spilled into a brand new month, December. What a delight it is to see Christmas decorations slowly coming into play around our home! Better still is the sweet sight of darling daughter’s dimple cheeks smiling up at her daddy.

This brings to mind one of my favorites…

While daddys hold a special spot for their darling daughters, likewise is equally true. Darling daughters hold a special place in their hearts for their daddys. Our very own darling daughter #2 wrote this poem for her dear daddy.

“To My Father”
By: Nicole Elise Kennedy
Father’s Day 2007


Looking at the paleness the world shades, the one thing that holds strong is the light you shine for me. 


Always there to take my hand, you lead me down the path of daylight to keep me from the darkness that claims so many.


You wrap protective wings around my shoulders, and I know you will always be there to guard me from those who pose harm.


You are my hero and my father. I cannot explain, no words would do, the love and gratitude I feel so deeply for you.
**Please do not use this poem without permission.**

I would really love it, if you would dowdle around my blog all day long, but Miss Jenny may send you to the corner. To read more ‘D’ posts or better still to submit your own ‘D’ assignment, then click below to link up.

Have a dandy day!
