I'm Back

and want to Thank those of you who expressed your condolences on the passing of my dear Father in Law Charlie. So sad, and hard to believe he has gone, he is in a better place and the family are consoling themselves with that. He had a fantastic send off over in Spain, sure he would have been watching with a smile on his face.
I haven't been creating recently, sure you will understand why but I have received some wonderful art pieces that I would love to share with you.

Would you look at these cigar boxes... I was in the post office sending off the room I created to Karen O and chatting to the Post Master about what I was sending this time (he loves to know) I mentioned about the rooms and he said "hold on a minute" then disappeared upstairs. When he came back down he gave me these boxes and said "you will make good use of these so I would love you to have them" HOW LUCKY AM I!!!

Next I invite you to feast your eyes on this beautiful piece created by Cheryl Dolby if you have never visited her blog well I urge you to do so, she is uber talented! I saw this and had to buy it, in real life the texture and colors are AMAZING! Thank you Cheryl for giving me the chance to own a piece of your art xxx

and last, but not least I was blown away to receive my "Room" from the PAPER WHIMSY swap - my room created by my friend Barbara Burkard. So appropriate for me to get this room as one of the greatest loves of my life is to read, I have to have a book to hand to read, I get twitchy if I don't. Funnily enough I was talking to Barbara on Skype and said to her "let me see the book you created for the PW swap" and when she showed it to me I fell in love with it... that bird took her 4 hours to create! that's dedication. Anyway Gale the owner of PW randomly gave us a swap partner and Barbara had to send to me - it was destined to fly over to England I think! SO THANK YOU BARBARA, I will treasure this always xxx

So even though I have not been creating I have been receiving art... plan for today? to create something, so guess what, I'm outta here... THANKS AGAIN FOR DROPPING BY

I am glad things are settling down a bit for you - I know it will be a long road to recovery - but I am glad that you all had a wonderful send off in Spain for him.

You really scored on these cigar boxes - how fantastic!
