Gifts and Exchanges

I think I love my mailman!

I arrived home from one of those days at work to find a wee box! How exciting, I love pressies!

I open said wee box...


the bestest pressie ever!!!

Art supplies from my gorgeous friend Cat from La Dolce Vita!

Waaaaaaaaa! (Mucho excitment in the camp, LOL!)

(Can you hear me all the way from OZ!)

Omni gel, (which I have never seen here before so yay something new to play with), wonderful ribbon, lace and fabric flowers (I already have something lined up for them), some lovely old book papers on the Tudor period of England ( she knows it's my fav), and some wax beads for encaustic play, YAHOO!!!. Seriously, I am so happy and excited, I can't wait to play with it all. Thank you to a dear friend from the bottom of my heart!

Now I have also been a part of the art exchange that's currently zapping around the world amongst arty folk. If you haven't heard about it, it requires you to make one piece of art and pass an invitation to play to six others. After all is said and done in an ideal world you make one piece of art and recieve 36 pieces of art! How cool is that! I played of course!

So here's my piece I have made.

Currently it is winging it's way accross the seas to the lovely Jill Zaheer.

I hope she likes it!

'Beauty's Muse'

A little mixed media collage play.

If you are interested in playing along with the art exchange let me know and I'll send you the details. One piece for 36 seems a fair exchange to me, LOL!

Now to find that mailman and give him a big hug!
