I'm late for the Butterfly effect's party of heros yet I quickly sketched a hero today in the last page of my sketchbook, which means....

I get to start a new one!!!!! yeah, that's always so exciting!!!

well, to me it's exciting, not like winning the lottery or even $20.00 on a scratch off, which of course you have to buy to win and I don't generally buy them,.... actually starting a new sketchbook is about the same excitment level as winning $20.00. wouldn't you agree? maybe not.

so now I'm thinking about levels of excitement... maybe not as exciting as having a baby or getting married but about as exciting as having a sale on etsy, I just love that! ....and as exciting as finding a dollar on the street, or passing a test with a top score or getting art in the mail, or realizing you still have a candy bar in your purse, or painting your nails a bright color, or watching your kids open presents.... OK that one might be more exciting than a new journal/sketchbook. But how about having someone compliment you in any way, or seeing toddlers hug, or knowing you have an hour to yourself to do as you please! all pretty exciting wouldn't you say?

So.... I totally got sidetracked, I was talking about hero's. Here's the questions that went with the theme at the Butterfly Effect and my answers...

1. What Super Power would you posses?
Flying, I love to dream about flying! (very Exciting)

2. What's your costume of choice?
Just a cape, maybe in purple. And a crown and maybe sometimes a mask, also purple.

3. Do you have/want a sidekick?
A skunk named Bonnie Blue, wait wasn't that Scarlet's daughter's name? I'm not sure.

4. What's your weakness?
Chocolate flavored Kryptonite

5. You a lover or a loner?
A loner, no wait, both.

6. Do you have a secret identity/ordinary life to juggle?
Don't we all?

7. Being a hero can make you enemies - who's/what's yours?
The dastardly evil villians who don't pay their child support, as that's my dayjob.

8. What's your motto or catchphrase?
Be brave, be bold, be happy anyway!

so if you leave me a comment and please do....tell me what excites you today....

let's see I need to link to Butterfly effect even though I'm late, and to Sunday Sketches. See you tomorow with another face!


  1. that outfit she's nearly wearing :D My exciting moment today (so far)hmmmmmm...oow! Hubby says there was a wild rabbit in our garden now we have foxes,hedgehogs,rabbits,frogs ,newts,toads,and LOADS of small birds visiting our garden(we live in a big city!):D XXX

  2. This is great! Love the red cape and the bikini!! Lol

  3. Love your superhero and all your answers to the questions! I think beginning a new sketchbook is very exciting. I haven't filled very many, but I'd love to see the stack grow! Having some time to draw without feeling guilty or like I need to be doing something else is exciting for me, along with most of the things you listed. ;)

  4. I love starting new sketchbooks. which is why I have so many partially-filled sketchbooks strewn about. for better or for worse, I'm not a completist :)
    exciting me today was staying in a hotel with an old fashioned mail chute. I loved it so much I sent two postcards and made my husband drop them from the fifth floor while I stood in the lobby and made a video of the falling mail on my phone. that was even better than realizing I have a candy bar in my purse. (which sadly, I don't)

  5. Oh, I love the Superhero Andrea !!! SHe is my hero !!!

    What excites me today is that I got to choose three winners for my 700th Post giveaway on the blog ! And guess what ? YOU are one of them ! Yay ! Send me an emial with your mailing address okay ? I will get the prize out to you asap.
    Fly On, Beautiful Caped One !

  6. the sun! we have sun - finally - at least for a day! oh and apple pie - which we have none but i will make one then!

    Love the super hero theme! we're all SH's

  7. love your super gal and it was fun to read answers to these questions.

  8. I get excited by too many things to list... I am one of those sad people who gets excited by anything and everything even the opening of an envelope...even when I know it is a bill I always think maybe they have decided I am so awesome they are giving me the month off or sending me a refund... hopeless I know... Having said that I think finding a candy bar in my purse would be awesome because I never buy them so it would mean that my purse was magic... now that would be exciting...xx

  9. This is absolutely fab, Andrea. I smiled big time as I viewed her in a bikini with her red cape. Brilliant and so much fun! :)

  10. A skunk sidekick would be fun....heehee!
    Yesterday was my daughter's Bday Party...there's nothing as heartwarming as the face of a kid on the morning of their party....or any kid centered fun, for that matter, like Easter or Christmas...

    The look in their eyes is priceless :)

  11. heehee you make me smile with your little sweet hero in her minibikini... I soo love her !!
