MSED: Bird a Day #149 Sketchbook Cover

I'm not sure I am going to make the April 30th dead line on this sketchbook project as I have hit a creative road block. I have sat down several times in the past month to post this and a few other birds that I have stored up and can't seem to get the gumption up to do very much posting or art. I am posting this by shear force of will hoping that it will "un-stick" me. I've been praying...

Liebster Award

Wow! I have been nominated three times for the Liebster Blog award.

(sorry Linda, I didn't understand it at first and didn't know what to do).
Then two nominations one right after the other! the first was from 
Yasna at 365 Words. 365 Days. 365 Opportunities. What a beautiful site she has!
Then  Yvonne from 365 Freestyle Zentangles gave me the nod. We share a common love for Zentangles.

Here are the 5 blogs I am nominating for the Liebster Blog award

Mary Katherine's Musings This woman is an amazing writer, mother and friend. Do yourself a favor and head over to her site for some inspirational reading. You'll see what I mean.
Whee Gina's Blog Whee Gina's quirky sence of humor and creativeness make her "Fan a Day Project" blog site a joy to read. Rock on Gina!
GrubbyGrrrl's 365 Days of Cats Kudos to another 365'er! Grubby Grrrrl's cats are so clever and cute. Keep 'em coming GG.
Quirkiecraft Is a fellow Michigander and a fine arts student. Her art is original and inspiring. You should see her knitted barnacles. Yes, I said knitted barnacles, so cool! It seems to me that she should be teaching the classes instead of taking them.
Strange Place I found Cindy on Redbubble and instantly became a fan of her work. I love her imaginary creatures and strange birds.
