View Full Version : Weekend Drawing Event August 13 2004

Last time I hosted an event, the theme was also an island, but in the Caribbean :) .
This time the islands are in the Gulf of St Lawrence. The first one is the home of
a certain fictional red-haired heroine loved by many a preteen girl worldwide. The
second is an enchanting archipelago right in the middle of the Gulf.

Hi, Wendy!

I was curious about what archipelago you were referring to, so I got out some maps, and figure that you must mean the Iles de la Madeleine. I've been to P.E.I., but never to the Madeleine islands (France in the Gulf of St.Lawrence!).

I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures! :D

Hey Wendy - no need to say sorry to us Sydney siders - we're used to it :(

Serves us right for living half a world away and underneath!

I'm glad it starts on friday, because that means that I have the entire weekend instead of just the sunday. :) :clap:

Oh boy, I can start on Saturday! That gives me a HUGE incentive to get involved this time around, Sunday is just not the best day for me.

Well here I am dragging in late as usual....Being a creature of habit, I waited till the last minute to look at the invitation :rolleyes: ....I kinda like the idea of it starting on Friday....so often Friday nites tend to be a bore for me ( or to better phrase it..I tend to be a boring person...lol)...oh well..time to clean my pastels before deciding what to paint.

Thanks Wendy!
