Bestill My Beating Heart...

The Ballyhoo has been “hearted” by the amazing, death-defying talents of krisztina maros at sketch pause.

Here are my 7 blogs that may change your life in no particular order

1. Barbara Johansen Newman’s always feisty blog – Cats and Jammers Studio

2. Author and blogger extrordinaire Cynthia Leitich Smith whose recent vampire book, Tantalize and spooky blog will leave your hair permanently standing on air.

3. Linda Silvestri whose blog has received countless blogging awards and still deserves 10 more for making me laugh on a regular basis.

4 & 5. Kathy Weller and Monica Lee for making me want to tap into to my innocent, whimsical and far less darker, vodka-drinking child.

6. The World Famous Circus Star, Adam Rex whose work makes me as giddy as school girl with a Jonas Brothers crush.

7. And last but not least....the best kept secret in blogging history is Don's American miniature portrait blog and European Miniature Portrait Blog whose postings are a treasure trove for any illustrator or writer researching historical hairstyles and costumes.
The rules for this award-takeaway are:
1. The winner can put the logo on their blog
2. Link the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links of those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message on the nominee's blog letting them know about their award

Ballyhooed Talent

The very talented Brian Demeter has some new original paintings for sale. His art always sells out fast so hurry on over.

I just got myself this ADORABLE frog for my daughter's room.
