The other day I was reading a blog of a friend. I was amazed at how calming it is to read about someone else's life. Even if that life sounds very hectic. From her blog I went on to read several others. Some wonderful, some funny, some... interesting to other people. It was at this point that I decided to use a blog as my next adventure in becoming a renaissance woman.
I am sure any renaissance woman would extol the virtues of a friend to the world. So let me tell you what I know about the person who brought me to Blogger.
Her name is Jeanette of Illustrated Life. I met Jeanette in a drawing forum. She is an accomplished artist, who has the ability to make her art look amazingly soft. Jeanette is a wonderful teacher, she has the ability to encourage and move you in the right direction. I have found Jeanette to be refreshingly direct and always kind. Jeanette has a soft spot for animals. The two dogs in the line drawing above were rescued by Jeanette, she shared the photo with us for a drawing challenge. To see Jeanette's pictures and listen to her writings you can tell that she has a love of nature. Which she is willing to share with others, even us city dwellers! Jeanette also has a virtue that I seem to lack (or at least not excel at), she has the ability to set goals and follow through with them. This is a very determined lady who I hope to get to know better over time.
Now, you all go check her out and find out all this for yourselves!


  1. Congratulations on the birth of your blog Paulette. Its good to see another friend join the community.

    If you don't mind, may I link your blog in mine?

  2. Jeanette,
    I would love for you to do that. Can I do the same?

  3. By all means Paulette. I would be flattered.
