Meet my other friends Monday

Monday's are so much easier to deal with when I have a little help from my friends. Since I think I've got the greatest friends on earth I want to share them with everyone. Monday's are dedicated to the best bloggers I know, my pals. You could be next.

After that little break for Thanksgiving I'm ready to introduce you to another blogger friend. This week you'll be meeting Pat from Pat Elliott Paintings. Pat shares her love of painting with all who visit. Not only does she show the finished piece but she will often share the steps she takes in creating it. I find it totally fascinating since I even failed at finger painting. Pat's loyal companion Missy also tends to make an appearance on the blog and Duke finds her quite attractive.

Now I had no idea when I sent Pat the email asking her to be my guest today that this would publish just days after her birthday. Yes, she celebrated her birthday last Friday. So enjoy her interview, and then stop by and pay her a visit.

1) How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I started my blog on the 12th July 2009. I wanted to catalogue the
journey I was making with watercolour and the trips my rescue dog and I
enjoyed in pursuit of something to paint.

2) What is one piece of advice you would give to a new blogger?
Enjoy it! Do what you can when you can, visit others and have fun.

3) Do you have any hobbies or special talents?
My hobbies include enjoying time with my dog, painting watercolours and
recently I've taken up writing!

4) Of course you love all the blogs you visit but share a link to one of
those and tell us why we should check it out.
I do love all the blogs I visit. One amongst them is special, because
I've met the lady in real life and we've gone to art events together.
Her name is Sharon and her blog is here.

5) What is the one thing that totally makes you crazy?
Someone being cruel to an animal.

6) Give one random thought.

Shine as brightly as you can, every day!
