What's in a Name (2)....

When I first started by blog, I wrote about my name here. I've never particularly liked my name mostly because it's so sharp sounding. Yesterday while browsing Blogland, I saw this on Dawn's blog and decided to see how many people had my name.

LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Apparently there are 577,914 people named Janet in the US making Janet the 89th most popular name (who knew!!) and 79,292 people with last name (actually I use my maiden name) making my last name the 426th most popular name and only 150 people with my combined first and last name....however if I use my married name it changes to 3,067,977 who have the same last name and becomes the 1st most popular name (do you know what it is) and 5,814 people have my first name as well as my married name.

Ok, enough of this foolishness!! Let's get on to some art! Yesterday the temps climbed back over 100ยบ so I was a little sluggish....even with the a/c. I tried to work on my collage for Crowabout but nothing was working so I set it aside and just went with what came up. I finished a couple of pages in my art book....

Sorry the scan is a little crooked and I forgot to trim the edges.

This is the facing page....and I didn't trim these edges either!

I'm happy with how these two turned out. Nothing really spectacular but they have a calm look to them. Something I've been needing recently.
