This reminds me of when I was very young and would watch tv at my grandparents house until the channel went off the air for the night and the station "screen saver" came up along with that very annoying and loud hummmmmmmm. Thanks for all the sweet memories V, I love it. Love the retro tv background you have going on now too. Have a great 4th and don't work too hard.

Take care sister Vanessa, have a great break, I am thinking of you always!

Now, I can be back to comment here.
sorry, my hard disk came to an end of its life last two weeks and I just bought a new one:)

Thank you for being my friend and wrote to me to encourage me when I was not happy. You are my best friend Vanessa!

Last week, I only took time off using the products that you sent me last year. I also adore your lovely bold voices on the Neo Soul Nursery Rhymes volume 1. So fun and encouraging!

You are super talented artist, you know how to draw, sew, sing....

You are my inspiration Vanessa!

Ann Marie DiVecchia said...

Have a great vacation, Vanessa! I had not seen all the updates to your blog. I love the new header and this retro 45 record illustration here! Awesome!! Your work is so fun as always.
All best wishes!!!

Why are you going away, and I am going away and You-Know-Who is going away. Are we meeting somewhere? If you and You-Know-Who meet somewhere without me I will pout for the rest of the year.


HAHAHAHA!


Vee, I do not want you to cry sad tears only happy tears. I am glad I made you happy. That is my desire.

Tsup! Tsup!

DEB said...

What a fun LP illustration. (I wonder how many of us are old enough to actually recognize one these days!?) You're not kidding about the "HOT fun." It was a record breaking 103F here today in VA!
