A Canvas a Day – Painting for Charity

For every single day in 2011, Joanne Arbuthnott of Nova Scotia has been creating a painting for charity… and writing about it. Her A Canvas a Day blog shows the incredible collection of art work Joanne has created in 2011, and captures her journey in detail with an entry with most paintings.

Joanne is continuing to sell off her art work for the Children’s Make-A-Wish Foundation, but whether you are interested in buying any, I highly recommend you have a look and read! And tell someone you know!

Congratulations to Japanese Women for Winning Soccer World Cup Finals 2011

Congratulations to the Japanese women soccer team for winning the 2011 FIFA World Cup in soccer!

Dallas Mavericks Rewrite Miami Heat’s Big Three Legacy with 2011 NBA Championship!

Congratulations to Dirk Nowitzki and the entire Dallas Mavericks organization in winning the 2011 NBA Championship!

By winning against the self-touted Big Three of Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, the Mavericks made a lot, if not most, of America and the world as happy as they are!
