A place to show my love for my granddaughter who lives with Cerebral Palsy and my passion for painting. In an effort of raising awareness for C.P. every painting brush stroke I make on raw canvas is a stroke of love, as I discretely paint a green C.P. awareness ribbon in every piece. Can you find them?
Do you know someone who would like to have a painting done? email www.harrold.janet@gmail.com

SIgn Language Video

As some of you know, awhile ago my blog was nominated for the About.com "Readers Choice Award" for The best Grandparent blog, I recently found out that I am now one of the top 5 contestants (Whoo Hoo)!!!!! Thank you for those who took the time to vote for me. I appreciate it. But anyway, the reason for my blog is while I was taking the time to peek at my competition, I ran across a blog called "Grandma's Briefs" (I couldn't help it, the title of the blog peaked my curiosity) When I looked at the blog I was pleasantly surprised to find a video that she had made after learning some basic sign language from baby signing time. This is all the rage for typically developing kids to be able to communicate earlier than they are able to speak. It cuts down on frustration and is also known for encouraging speech at an earlier age. I also need to get up to speed with my sign language in order to be able to keep up with Hailey's communication, she has learned a bit in school and I want to be able to understand her when she is trying to tell me something. I hope this helps dome of you as well. Thank you to Grandma's Brief's If I don't win the contest, I hope that you do!


  1. Aw, thank you, Janet! You are so sweet. There are hundreds of baby sign language videos on YouTube. I went through many before settling on that one for my post today. I'm so happy you found it useful and wanted to share.

    I appreciate you visiting Grandma's Briefs. I love your paintings, your photos of your precious granddaughter, and your blog. You are one truly talented grandma. I just babble; you create art! Good luck to you in the About.com competition. If nothing else, we both found a new grandma blogger friends! :o)

  2. Great painting...beautiful paint application and color.
