Hope you Giggle too!

Paint Party Friday

 
Mara Belle is quite private and refuses to tell me about herself.
Cupcake: Mara Belle said," I have a wedgie!!"

 I have missed two weeks in a row blogging.Pretty sure it's the 
first time in eleven years!!  Both Cupcake and I have been
  fighting  viruses. She managed to  pick up another at the tail
  end of the first one. At least that's what the doctor said!
 I was  worried she had pneumonia. She's resting
to curb the coughing. She managed to celebrate Fathers
 day with her in-laws, but only stayed a few hours as Beardo 
saw her fading! Apparently her sister in law has had it for
 two months now!  I am on the mend, save my ears slowly
 unplugging each day! I'm catching up on sleep now
 for all the days of coughing. So so grateful to be
feeling better! I did create intermittently while sick,
and hope to visit and catch up on all your blogs
as soon as possible!
Winny admits to being a nerd who loves polka-dots!
Cupcake: Winny said, " I like to eat ketchup out of the jar!"

I'm sharing more of my Happy Tiler peeps with a twist this time!
I let Cupcake look at their pictures and say the first thing that came
to mind,  without reading what I said first!! We managed
to have a few giggles, hope you do too!!
Jerry is  a divorced meat cutter single for several decades!
Cupcake: Jerry said,"I try to be cool, but I'm not!
I still sleep with my teddy bear!!"
Before
Life has been a bit depressing with all the nastiness in the
world of late! Being sick makes you feel even more vulnerable.
While the kids did grocery shopping, I managed to have a
private  melt down with lots of tears for all those affected
the last four weeks!! Sometimes it gets so bottled up and
feels refreshing to let it all out without holding back!!
After dressing my peeps in digital Canada day attire for July 1st!
I didn't even change my banner this month until just 
this week! Took me a few hours to digitally dress my 
Happy tiler peeps in their Canada Day attire!!
 Cupcake giggled quite a bit when she 
 saw them all decked out in red and white! 
Brandon is a teacher who needs a brewsky on the days his kids are  too rambunctious!
Cupcake: Brandon said," I like to boogie all night long"

If I can make one person smile or giggle at the quirkiness
of my odd shaped peeps with the weird over coloured
facess and odd attire,  then I'm happy!!
Sues need for perfectionism is often quite debilitating!!
Cupcake: Sue said "I'm having an affair with your husband!"

If you like to people watch the way I have over the years
you see how unique human bodies, faces and 
mannerism truly are!
 That's what makes it so interesting!!
Henry is a pleasant guy who likes to "skip  the light fandango."
Cupcake: Henry said " I'm really nice despite my appearance!"

From childhood I tended to like unique features! that
  weren't perfect! Who knew it was probably the
 artist within that found them so attractive!!
Cass is a Peace, Love and Harmony kinda a gal!
Cupcake: Cass said, "I'm really insecure and 
that's why I dress like this!!"

I sometimes see beauty where others may not! I often 
wonder, is it because I choose to look for the beauty
 first! Or is it because beauty in all it's glory tends to
trump what others may see as ugly or
not so perfect!
Linny is a quirky bird with an attitude! She's usually the instigator to family problems!
Cupcake: Linny said,"Do you think I can get free drinks with this dress?"

I tend to be attracted to all things unique!! I have never been
mainstream. Of course as a child it really makes you feel
like an oddball. Once you understand that no one is the 
same, the the ability to enjoy the oddities in life
are a gift, you accept it!

Sophie loves sunday school and purple tights!
Cupcake: Sophie said," I have to go to the bathroom"

For some reason I always wanted to be different than 
the others. Sadly it took half a century to figure out why!
Pretty sure it's the artist within. Who really knows!!

How about you do you like to fit in with all the others?
Or do you like to march to your own drummer and find
yourself a little outside the mainstream?

so good to see your wonderful post full of art and thoughtful words!! LOVE your Canada day banner, and of course what fun to read your thoughts on your characters and then Cupcake's:):) Hope you all continue to feel better. Happy PPF!

Latane Barton said...

I am sorry you have been sick. But, it appears you are on the mend, which is a good thing.

How good to see you back, Giggles. Hope you are a lot better.
I like your people in Canada colours, they look happy about it.
Cupcake is a riot. What they say and what they really think. Or is it the other way round?
I love all the costumes you make for your people. I was going to say each costumes goes with each face and personality, but I wonder what would happen if you switched faces?
Don't you think artists are usually a bit different - because they have to create, not conform?

Christine said...

So glad you are back and feeling better, fun post, nice art.

Sorry to hear you've been so sick and poor Cupcake too! Sending you lots of healing vibes for a speedy recovery.

I laughed at Cupcake's descriptions - especially the wedgie one as it does look a little like she's attending to her wedgie in the drawing!!

Faye said...

Sherrie, I do hope the virus has gone by now and you are feeling so much better. I love your quirky banner guys dressed in Canadian colors! I had so much fun reading your comments and then those that Cupcake had written and had to laugh (even out loud). Lots of fun.

Nicole Beadwright Campanella said...

I am so sorry that you and Cupcake have been ill. I send healing energy to you both. Of course I love your peeps and the descriptions are perfect. I wanted to fit in when I was younger but never did. I have always walked to my own beat.

Susan said...

I like to "fly solo". I work with the public and am very appropriate at work but happily being north of 70, I no longer care what anyone thinks of much of anything. I definitely have my own mind and think it comes with maturity (along with many unmentionable things). Was "in love" with Henry until I met Linny. There is a Linny in every family somewhere. Love the contrast between comments. Happy PPF

gillena cox said...

Happy you are blogging today. Enjoyed today's peeps

Much love...

Carol Rigby said...

Sorry to here you and Cupcake have been ill. hope you are both feeling better soon.

Abigail Davidson said...

Hope you both are feeling better! Your characters look fabulous, especially Winny - so much personality :)

denthe said...

Glad to see you back! You're right, I've never known you to miss 2 weeks in a row on PPF, I actually was getting kinda worried ... Glad to hear you're on the mend! And your quirky characters are as colorful and fun as always. Love hearing what Cupcake says about them :-) I never purposefully set out to be different from others, but I guess I was. I've always done whatever I felt was the right thing to do, even if no one else was with me. And I'm glad I did. I don't want to die regretting things I didn't do but wanted to ...

Sue (this n that) said...

Hope you're all feeling so much better with each day!
I love how you and Cupcake teamed up with the comments - they're so sweet and unique to each peep. Definitely, you bring smiles to many including me and for that I thank you :D)

June Walker said...

Glad you are beginning to feel better. I have enjoyed looking at your instagram posts!! Keep making the unique little people.

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog ~ ^_^

Lyn Bernatovich said...

Okay girl, you need to write a book with your characters chatting about!!!! I'm so entertained. Glad to hear you're mending. It sucks to be down and out. Paper Petunia needs to meet Cupcake!!!

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

What sweet and lovely characters! I hope you and Cupcake feel completely better soon.

Viola said...

I'm sorry to hear you are having a flu. I hope you are better now, as you said you feel a little better, and Cupcake as well. Lovely paintings and reading about your painted caracters, I had to giggle ;) it was so fun! I am glad we all are different, makes it more exciting. I don't like that all shall behave or dress in the same way. I think I like to walk a little outside the mainstream. I hope you'll both get well soon!

Viola said...

A wonderful banner also!

JKW said...

Glad you and cupcake are feeling better. I am who/what I am. . .I am different and sometimes that gets in the way, but I won't fight, I just explain that is how I am . . I just think differently than everyone else if someone doesn't understand. After all, we can't be alike, b/c we aren't. Blessings, Janet

Jean said...
