YOU draw ME - in Cuba.

This here's a flip on my YOU series. Instead of me drawing YOU, I asked you to draw ME. As you prolly know, I'm exhausted / fried / wasted / pooped / cream'n'crackered and plum tuckered out from this ...and this. I went to Cuba to have some badly needed R & R with my little boy but I didn't leave enough time to get the post together properly before I left. So I'm doing it now!

It was great to get people drawing. And draw you did, all different, all meaningful, and all from wonderful people. I'll let you discover them for yourself...

This one's from Those2Girls blogger Lisa @those2girls! I'm singing Madonna's HOLIDAY. My bags are packed in the drawing, but they were not packed in real life. HAH!

From The Little Hen House blogger Morgan @littlehenhouse "Here is my favorite one. Had to write it on the back of a receipt. :)" When the creative hits, draw on anything you can - envelopes, napkins, your kid's forehead - don't hold back!

From Being Peachy blogger @ThePeachy1. If you read my blog, then you already know about weevers and slugs. Turns out, Cuba's hurricane season was not a huge improvement on the beaches of England's Cornish coast.

And from Liv and Let Dine blogger Olivia, AKA @Olithechef who lived in Cuba as a child, actually inside the Guantanamo army base from 1967 to 1970.

From the talented On the Eve of Insanity blogger @EverRose who wrote "It's hard to make a stick figure that doesn't look like one of your drawings!" I think she succeeded - it has it's own distinct style.

From Not Super...Just Mom blogger Miranda, @notsuperjustmom a colourful spin on heading for the beach.

The Ink Panther blogger, Rob @InkPanther's drawing really looks like me! And yeah, Animation Rules!!

From Mocha Dad blogger Fred AKA all around awesome dude @mochadad! You know, I did see some pretty awesome cars in Cuba.

This one is from my lovely 13 year old daughter.

We got my BFFF @TrashCanRoxanne drunk on Halloween and then asked her to draw this. Not bad for for a glow-in-the-dark witch eh? Here's her portfolio/blog!

From the adorable Mike AKA @artisticdork - check out my awesome silver streak!! He's a fellow artist and you can check out his work here.

Finally My Seven Kids blogger Nikki @mysevenkids drew this for me. I think it captures perfectly what I wanted to achieve on this vacay: some time alone with my son. With no distractions, no phones, no pressures....and even (I was shaking at the thought) NO TWITTER. We didn't get the sunshine, but we scored really high on quality time together.'s thanks to this drawing that I remembered to pack my sunglasses, heheh.
Thank-you everyone!

There is one more Cuba guest post coming up ... from my friend Tanya, the lovely blogger extraordinaire Mom-o-matic. Stay tooned!
