Where I've got all my memories, those were my happiest days...

  I have started working on the set for "Me and Bobby and Bobby's Brother".  EXCITED!!!

Climbing the Apple Tree...

A nice little playground.  No?

ABBA as kids, ABBA as adults...

Unused Artwork

Go to "The Story of ABBA"'s Google + page to see artwork that was unused in the final book. 

I am everywhere.

Whenever I go checkout ABBA/ABBArelated websites, ABBAFan456 happens to appear.  This has happened two times already.  :P

This was at an ABBA forum called ABBA4Ever.  I am quite happy.  :)

I saw this today at Agnetha's Facebook Page.  :P
I am proud of myself.  ;)  I have made it into the ABBA community.

"The Story of ABBA" on Google +

I'm not much of a google plus kind of person either, but when it comes to advertising, I'm gonna do it!  :P  Check out my new page here!

Anybody's Guess FAIL + drawing + Super Dee Duper drawing

That's a pretty good quality scan...  ;)
  Long title.  Anyways, last weekend (or was it two weeks ago... o.O) my family and I decided to play an old 90s (I think) game called "Anybody's Guess". Since everyone knows that I'm the ABBA girl of the family, I was asked to figure out the next question.  I had a feeling that it had something to do with ABBA, but the fact that it was under the category "Rock Group" really threw me off.  So because of that, I am here to bash it.  Most ABBA fans won't act this way about calling ABBA a Rock Group which they are not, but I'm a very "be true to your music group" kind of person, as well as a perfectionist, so I insist that ABBA be called a Pop Group which they are, not a Rock Group.  A Rock Group is something like the Beatles where there is a lot of guitars and stuff like that.  ABBA is not like that.  Okay, that's enough bashing.  ;)

And now for drawing.  :P

I finally found the reference picture I was looking for and  got a chance to color this in.  It's not my best, but it's not bad. :\
  And now for the


I don't think I've been this proud before...  

 I drew this completely with my trusty old black color pencil.  Oh yeah, and my eraser.  :P  I think I have officially taught myself how to shade.  Beautiful, no? :P  I love the way the eyes came out.  And the hair!  And the jacket!  And the shirt!  And the everything!  I AM SO PROUD!!!!

Happy 69th Birthday, Bjorn!

  Congrats on becoming one year older!  :P  Now it's picture time!!!

What a cute little baby.  :)

Guessing about 12 or 13 years old. 

Nice hat.  Reminds me of this hat...

Cute dog.  :)

Pictures of interest

I'm bored.  So why not have some picture fun?  :P

Tangled starring Agnetha Faltsog as Rapunzel
I like wine, I like food...
LOL, Agnetha. Nice sunglasses.
Pretzels, anyone?
It's magic!!
Benny: I wonder if paper tastes just as good as hamburgers.
Whatever you do, don't comment.
I just noticed that Frida's glasses look just like mine.  o.O
Learn to make coffee with Agnetha!
Windy.  :P
Agnetha, you're choking me.
Is that guy writing on a plate?
Eat food with ABBA!  (See top right.)
Alright, that's enough pictures for now.  :P

The Wicked Witch of the West

No offense intended, but today when I was looking through my huge folder of over 100 ABBA pictures, I couldn't help but notice that Frida's face made me think of the Wicked Witch of the West.  And it just so happens that I have a fear of the Witch since I was little, so I'm a bit scared.  :P

  Margaret Hammilton really was a sweet woman who is nothing at all like the WWW.

Send birthday wishes to Bjorn!

  Send birthday wishes to Bjorn at ABBAsite! Um, I can't help but say that they chose a very unflattering picture of Bjorn for his birthday.  I would have chose this one.

"The Definitive Collection"

  When I'm not drawing on paper, I'm drawing online using Microsoft Paint for my Zazzle Shop. My newest graphic for my shop is of the cover for the Definitive Collection - one of my favorite compilation albums.  ;)
Cute, no?  :P
  When I was drawing this picture, I decided to film it in case I ever felt like looking back at how I did this certain picture.  I currently have about an hour and 40 minutes of film.  So, why not upload it here?  In parts, not the full video.  :P

ABBA in Gold. :P

So, I finished sewing Agnetha's outfit from 1977!  You can check it out, as well as new dolls plus a bit about my Webkinz at my other blog, Sew Amazing!  :D

Does Your Mother Know?

I have very glitchy headphones that only play normal sound if you have the plug slightly out.  I just heard Does Your Mother Know through my "Glitch Headphones", which caused all the vocals to disappear.  Wow, the backing track to the song really is amazing!  I wish all of you could hear it that way!  ;D

What a Star Wars fan I used to be...

  Before I got into ABBA, I used to be a HUGE Star Wars fan.  And that was way before I had even watched the Original Trilogy, but somehow I had already known who Princess Leia was and designated her as my favorite character.  The first Star Wars movie I ever saw was the Phantom Menace.  I used to have such a fear of Darth Maul, that I would run away from the TV and hide until I heard Obi-Wan scream "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!".  :P  But now that I look back, I don't see what's so scary about him. 

  Then I saw Attack of the Clones.  I personally can't stand the whole thing about Anakin being in love with Padme and that annoying song which keeps on playing.  o.O  But I know that it's an important part of the story and that it had to happen in order for the Original Trilogy to start. 

  When I saw A New Hope for the first time, I was so excited.  To see Princesss Leia for the first time was very exciting.  Luke and Han were okay, too, but I only watched it for the princess.  I was obsessed.  Then I saw Empire Strikes back.  I found it to be a little bit boring, but watched it anyway.  The whole Luke training to be a Jedi was way too boring.  Now, whenever I watch it, I skip over those scenes.

  Strangely, before I even finished watching the whole saga, I knew about characters from the expanded universe, like Mara Jade (who is awesome, BTW), Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo, Tenel Ka... 

  It took two years before I finally saw Return of the Jedi.  And when I finally was able to watch it, I had my attention turned to my foot because I had a huge cut...  I got to watch it again - I've watched it over 20 times now... - and pay more attention later on.

  I was very wary about watching Revenge of the Sith because a neighbor was once talking about how when Anakin got burnt up on Mustafar (Is that even how to spell it?) after fighting with Obi-Wan, you see his skull and that just scared me to pieces.  But I watched it and saw that it was as scary as it was exaggerated to be.

  And then I went on to the books.  I've read almost all the Star Wars books, (A good series to read is the Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn) and now I am waiting for the newest books to be released as physical books and not dumb audio boos. 

  Because of my Princess Leia obsession, I got the LEGO X-Wing for my birthday.  Not because I like the X-Wing, but because it was cheapest set with the Leia Minifig.  But then her face got scratched off, so I had to live with that for years.  I finally got it replaced right when LEGO was changing all the looks of the minifigs and the only set that had her normal face was the set with all the ewoks... 

  But now, I'm not really into Star Wars anymore.  I think its because now everyone's all hyped over The Clone Wars (which is ending soon or has already ended - Yay!), and the fact that LEGO changed all the minifigs and made them all look stupid.    BUT that doesn't mean that I don't like Princess Leia because she will always be with me - like the force.  :P

(Is this my longest blog post ever?  :P)

<---  I have no idea what this was doing in my Star Wars folder.  :P

Agnetha "ABBA's Icon"???? Serioisly... o.O

First off, this is my opinion and you don't have to agree with it. If you don't agree with it, you don't have to read. 

So, a lot of people say that Agnetha is "ABBA's Icon" which doesn't make sense.  Maybe Agnetha stands out the most of the four.  She's the only one with blonde hair (The other three are BRUNETTES...  Well, Frida was a brunette once upon a time.  Take that, people who think that Bjorn and Benny are blondes.  o.O).  But she isn't ABBA's icon.  ABBA is A B B A - Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid.  If anything, they're all "ABBA's Icon".  So all this talk about "ABBA's Icon" is complete nonsense. 

I just felt like letting off some steam.  :P

The history book on the shelf is always repeating itself!!!! Happy 40th, ABBA!!!!!
