Wooo hooooo! We did it, y’all!
First of all I want to give a hearty thanks to all the folks who visited my blog, Facebook, or Twitter to support and root me on. Your comments, retweets, shares and ‘likes’ were encouraging, often funny and clever and always more than welcome. Thanks also for doing the same for my fellow SkADaMoers. You guys made the journey all the sweeter and kept me going when I was tempted to just sit and eat a whole bag of chips while watching goofy, but time wasting kitty antics on YouTube.
I may have only completed 25 sketches in 30 days, but that’s 25 more sketches than I would have done otherwise.
In fact, to all my fellow SkADaMoers:
You decided to step a bit out of your comfort zone this November, dip your toe into a challenge. Maybe you did one sketch, or 5, 10 or all 30. Whatever number you managed to do… You. Are. A. Winner!
Why? “Why am I a winner no matter how many sketches I finished”, you may ask? Well, because you took a positive, productive step toward revving up your creative engines this month. Perhaps your sketchbook is a little fuller, your blog has a few more posts. Maybe you killed it and did 30 sketches or more! Maybe for those who participated in PiBoIdMo or even if you didn’t, you have some great picture book ideas percolating now or some great new ideas for a painting or some other type of super cool project. Maybe because you dipped your toe into this challenge you’ll be more toned up to jump into something even more challenging with both feet! Whatever the case may be, you did it and that is fantastic! Good for all of you!
You rock. Take a winner badge!
Now go on and enjoy the rest of your holiday season, feeling a bit more energized. Maybe you’ll take a rest from sketching every single day, maybe you’ll continue do a wee bit every day…
Maybe you’re a masochist like myself and you’ll join the HoHoDooDa (Holiday Doodle a Day) fun that December brings (starts tomorrow, or any day you can join. Of course the sooner the merrier.)
More about the third annual HoHoDooDa later today. For now congratulations SkADaMoers! You kicked November’s butt!
And thanks again to everyone who supported us and rooted us on. You guys are winners as well. Take a badge!

Yep, that’s what I was all day today. Bloated. It’s tradition.
I don’t do the shopping thing on Black Friday. But I do , in fact, bloat. So I suppose it’s really Bloat Friday… for me.
Ok, now on to Sensible Saturday, where smaller portions are the order of the day.
Join me in a waddle on over here to check out my fellow SkADaMoers.

Today, we eat like kings!
An oldie from last year but seems appropriate for the day!
I’ll be back to SkADaMo tomorrow. But just in case there are some die hard SkADaMoeres out there, you can check here.

Thought I’d work in a few pilgrims in between stirring and sautéing for tomorrow.
Let’s take a peek at what the other SkADaMoers are up to over here.
Happy Day-Before Thanksgiving, y’all!

So, I seem to be continuing on a bedtime theme here. It’s wishful thinking, no doubt. This chilly weather puts me in a mood to kick off my cloven sheep slippers and curl up in bed with a good book.
Ah, but I have sketches to catch up on! Missed another two days. Oh for shame! But wait, that’s right, there are no rules. No harm done!
Anyhoo, stop on over here and let’s see how the other SkADaMo participants have been doing.
