Hi Everyone,

Well here we are [sigh] Back on lockdown with even more restrictions. Protestors are gathering in large groups, no masks, no social distancing. Vaccinations are happening but not as quickly as they should.  Small businesses are closing rapidly. We're angry. We're confused. We're anxious. We're sad. We're worried. 

It can be a lot to process and accept. 

I always thrive to keep Scribbles upbeat & light, humourous & entertaining. We are a Covid 19 Free zone. Scribbles does "happy". We're not about "bad" stuff. We're what you do to take your mind off the bad stuff.  

But I'm tweaking the equation a smidge. As friends get vaccinated and post pix of it, we'd like to share that kinda thing. So technically it's a Covid related post, but it's a happy one because it's about the positive.  

The other change we're making is the location of our Support section in our sidebar. Support was located near the end of the sidebar. We've moved it closer to the top. The need for support has never been greater and that could include our Scribbles friends. Moving that section up makes it easier to access. 

This edition features a lot of the things you love the most. We've got cute kids. We've got amusing pets. There's stories about our Scribbles friends. There's two humour sections and a trivia quiz all about the Brady Bunch. Plus we feature our annual encore Spring posts giving you tips from spring cleaning to when to plant your garden.  

They're stories and photos selected to bring you a smile or two. That's something that will always be the foundation of Scribbles. 

Stay safe. Stay calm. We've got this. We just need to hang in there a bit longer. 

Enjoy today's Scribbles.

Getting the Bird

Fear makes the wolf larger than he is.

Princess Everleigh & the Magical Unicorn

Creating this post took a little extra time. I had completed the entire post. All I needed to do now was add some captions.  I opened the post on Photoshop to edit, only to discover the images were blurry. You could not even see JJ & Keith's faces in the pix of them with Evereigh. There was no way it should be used on Scribbles. It would need to be fixed. I copied good quality pix & pasted them over all the blurry ones. Then I saved the whole thing in PNG format instead of JPG and voula....you could see Everleigh and her family perfectly.  #WorthEveryMoment

- SCRIBBLES VIDEO - Count the Eggs Draw featuring Mr. Sock

I think THIS version of our Count the Eggs draw, with its added graphics, special effects and background music, is a perfect example of what Scribbles is all about. 

It has something for everyone, including our younger friends, who get a chance to virtually search for Easter eggs with our new pal Mr. Sock, a character with instant appeal, whom you will no doubt see more of in the future. 

There's humour, there's love, there's lots of imagination and when combined the results are somewhat magical. 


Here one more time is what our Count the Eggs Contest looked like...
