Let’s get started!

Three Things About Me

  1. I absolutely LOVE to throw birthday parties, pretty much for anyone that will let me, even though I stress myself out sometimes.
  2. Sharing my southern accent with anyone outside my inner circle scares me. It’s something I have been made fun of more times that I would like to admit.
  3. I have recently fallen in love with audio books. I listen to them at work and while I draw.

Questions I Received

If you could learn a new language instantly, what would you choose and why?

I would definitely learn Spanish. First of all, I believe it is an amazingly beautiful language and I have always been fascinated by it. Secondly, I would greatly benefit in my career if I were bilingual, with Spanish being my second language.

What book(s) do you reread over and over?

I haven’t. Once I read a book, I’m done with it. However, if there is a movie to be made, I like to reread it before the movie is released.

What’s your favorite comfort food?

This one is easy. Anything southern is a comfort to me. I love any foods that stick to your bones like rice and gravy, pinto beans and rice and country fried chicken and mashed potatoes.

Do you plan your blog posts in advance, or write them as the ideas come?

Although I should plan my blog posts, most of them are on the fly, how I feel that day and what feelings I want to share in relation to the art that I created.

If you could have any mythical creature as a companion, which would you choose?

I would choose a dragon. Hands down, without hesitation.

Lovely Blog Award

I am so new to the blog award concept but I absolutely adore the idea.  So many times, followers become one sided, so when you are noticed for your hard work, It gives you the boost you need to keep going! I was nominated by the amazing Shri from for the Lovely Blog Award. If you haven’t heard about this one, here are the rules:

  1. Mention and leave a link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
  2. Share seven interesting facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate others for the award.
  4. Share the good news with your nominees.

I recently shared three facts about me in my last award, so here are 7 more facts about me that might interest you:

  1. I pride myself on being very educated. I want to learn something new every day.
  2. I don’t watch much TV at all, and when I do, I either fall asleep, or keep myself awake with art.
  3. I’m a perfectionist. Sometimes that gets in the way of my art, but I really have to make an effort to accept what comes out.
  4. I just recently started learning beauty secrets and how to put on makeup. Who knew I was doing it wrong the whole time?
  5. I have to change the furniture around as often as I can. It always makes me feel like it gives new life to an old space!
  6. I have only been drawing for less than 2 years. I hadn’t even wanted to doodle before that, only scrapbooked occasionally.
  7. I am an avid PC gamer. Although I haven’t been able to play as much as I used to, I love MMORPG’s like World of Warcraft, (That’s right, vanilla player here!) and Diablo III.

I hope you enjoyed those little nuggets about me, now for my nominees. I want to nominate 7 blogs that have supported me in my new website as well as have some pretty amazing blogs.

  1. Learn Polymer Clay
  2. 1000 Places and Memories
  3.  Saint P Blogging
  4. Yassy
  5. The Shower of Blessings
  6. Suze
  7. Needull

Congratulations to all of you! Now I’m off to be creative!

Answer to the questions

You have to nominate some bloggers

Ask your nominees any five questions


I just want to send a special thank you to Bhagyashri for considering my blog as worthy enough for such a nomination. I am touched that someone chose my blog from the millions out there. One of my favorite tag lines of this blog is My Doodle World. It is definitely worth checking out and you can do it right here.


  1. I am really good at organizing work spaces. It is something that comes very natural and I can complete an organization task very quickly and efficiently. I can surely thank my mother who always said, “Everything has a place.”
  2. I find myself getting very discouraged about some of my art pieces, but I push myself to publish it anyways, just to find that it is one of my most loved piece by my followers. My advice to you is let your followers convince you that every piece you create is a masterpiece to someone.
  3. I start my day with music and dancing. I am absolutely not a morning person, but being as though I must start at 5:30am to get the house ready for the day forced me to create an environment that was positive and gave me good vibes for the day. So I wake up, I shower, and I sing!


1.What is your take on TV Series?

I do not have much time to watch tv at all. I find that it is much more enjoyable to actually create something or interact with friends and family. I think that these days people allow their lives to slip by sitting on a sofa. I do not want to be that, I want to strive to always be better. This is not to say that I don’t enjoy the occasional series or movie that may catch my attention, I just chose a different activity most of the time.

2. How do you react when your name is pronounced or written wrongly?

You would think a name like Charity would be fairly easy to keep straight, but I have found that it is most commonly mispronounced as Chasity or Chastity, and is most commonly misspelled as Chasity. I have only met a small number, that I could easily keep on one hand, of individuals that share my name. My take on this is, people no longer respect someone enough to learn how to pronounce and spell their names correctly. There is an entitled group of people that make it very clear they are above all others. I make a point to not only ask someone their name, but ask them about the origin if it is of rare quality.

3. Do you believe in life after death? If Yes, what you wish to be?

I do believe there is life after death but I think of it in a different way. I do not believe in reincarnation, I believe that the life after death is the life created from death. Let me explain.  I believe that we are placed on this earth to make a difference and to push the next generation forward in education and questioning their surroundings. I believe that a person lives on in the inspiration they leave in the lives of those around him/her.

4. How many dreams came true? Can you share a major one.

I grew up in a small town in the south. The seasons never seemed to really change. It was warm and sunny almost year round. But there was this particular season, I hadn’t ever experienced. Winter. The coldest it would get in my hometown would still allow for just a light jacket to be comfortable. Since as long as I could remember, I had always dreamed of a white christmas. It wasn’t until after I had turned 19, that my husband at the time was stationed to Ft. Wainwright, Alaska. Even though I joined him in the middle of July, there was a chill in the air I had not experienced before. After getting used to the chill in July, I was able to experience my first snowfall of any significance. It was so magical. I was like a kid standing outside with my arms outstretched and my mouth wide open. It was snow, and in that moment, I felt amazing!

5. Introduce your extra hobby, which you have not mentioned here yet.

I love PC Gaming. I have been playing World of Warcraft since before the first expansion. I have found a guild that is made up of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet. From jugglers, artists, military and bodybuilders, to the kids of those previously mentioned starting a life of their own. This group of people have become like a second family to me. They are always there and we are all friends on facebook and share memories from years of playing this game. I have met the most amazing people and THAT is why I continue to play this beautiful escape.



  1. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
  2. What is the most creative thing you’ve done in your lifetime?
  3. Do you believe in aliens? Have you ever been visited?
