When we arrived home from our adventures in Michigan, I was delighted to find packages in the post!
not just one,but two!! Lucky me!
The first was from friend and fellow artist, Renee Zarate'
If you are not familiar with her name right away,perhaps you have seen her art published in one of many Stampington issues?
Recently I had won this The Groove Tool as a giveaway on Renee's blog!
I will absolutely post when I use it to show you how it works!
Also, in the package, from Renee was this generous bunch of Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Products!! Renee Zarate' is an Artist In Residence at Imagine Crafts-have a look at some of the projects she shares there.
Look at this yummy score! Woo Hoo!! I can't wait to get my hands in it and play!
(I have not as of yet,because I had been down and out with a flu bug the past week and a half!)
And still there was more! My favorite in the package were, these wonderfully,creative and fun atc's that Renee made for me! I just love them and have them hanging in my studio-
thank you thank you Renee!!
Don't you just love happy mail?
My second piece of happy mail came from my
dear friend Darlene Campbell.
Darlene is my first ever online friend and we have been sharing art and fun,ever since we met on a Strathmore workshop!
What struck me right away about Darlene,was her humor. She commented that she had just cut up her lace kitchen curtains to use as a stencil! and ya know what? she wasn't kidding!!LOL
From then on we were kindred souls and good friends!
A bit more about Darlene...she is a cartoonist,writer and very much published artist as well! She has created this cartoon character named,"Zebra" who is always up to the funniest antics-give a read sometime!
I love my new piece of art Darlene,you knew this was one of my favs!! Thank you dear friend!!
and Congratulations to you and Gary on becoming new grandparents!! YAY!!
Besides the packages...
there was also a large wood pile waiting for us!
Riley to cut and me to stack!
|this photo shows the end of it|
yup, I stacked all that!! That is what you get when you want to be warm and cozy during those long cold winter months! ")
Thank you for joining me today.
As I am on the mend from this flu,finally,I hope to be up and creating again soon!
I leave you today with wishes for Peace throughout the world.
I also ask that we all join in solidarity in sending healing thoughts and prayers for Paris.
