No Butts About It

Did you know that today is National Scrabble Day?

I decided to play along and join my friend, Charlie at Doodlewash in celebrating a National day today with a doodlewash.  If you want to know more about Charlie or a doodlewash, please check out his awesome blog!

Did you know that Alfred Butts invented the game, Scrabble?  I had no clue…(oh, that’s a different game!)  Mr. Butts was a shy statistician with a degree in architecture, a mathematical mind and an aversion to spelling – go figure!  If you’d like to learn more about this letters game, I’d suggest you check out Wikipedia at this link:

Since today is also Charlie’s birthday, I decided to create this message for him:


No butts about it, Charlie is an FANTASTIC artist and a great friend!

HAPPY Birthday Charlie!  🙂

    Hi Everyone,

    Today I’m sharing the work of the delightful Jill Kuhn. I chose to share her scrabble “Happy Birthday” painting because it’s whimsical and a lot of fun. And maybe because my birthday is next week. If you look through her work you will see that all of her watercolors have that fun whimsical flair. I also love that colorful floral watercolor that’s up on the header of her website. Along with many other people, I have enjoyed seeing and reading about your work Jill! And she shares my name. 🙂 Her work has inspired me to get cracking with the watercolors too…
