What an unexpected surprise I received today in my mailbox!!!

Sharon over at (Norah's) sent me one of her creations ~ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I LOVE it!!!
It's is the sweetest felt bag that is decorated with a Gustav Klimt flare ~ cause she knows how much I love his work (and hers). How sweet is that! It came in the prettiest envelope all decorated and GOLD, inside it was wrapped in a gold tissue paper with beautiful ribbon and the sweetest note from Sharon, and an ATC as well. SO generous of you and again THANK YOU!

I'm so glad that I started this bloggin' thing. I'm amazed at the generosity of my fellow bloggers! I've come across the most amazing ARTISTS, eye candy, ideas, thoughts, etc. in the short time that I've been bloggin'.

Check out the links on the side of my blog ~ you'll see some of the best, most creative, and most generous ladies bloggin'. Don't just stop by ~ leave them a comment and let them know you've enjoyed what you've seen and read.


We had a really good time painting pansies last night. One of my favorite flowers to paint.


Mary Jane
(see the folder ~ that is what I telling you about the other day that I do for each of my students that come to class). They can put wax paper over it and practice on that as well as the laminated worksheets I give them in each class.

Alice ~
Alice won the drawing as well and this is what I painted for her in class.
I did a second drawing because I had an extra box from a student that wasn't able to show up and Mary Jane won that one ~ forgot to take a pic of that one.

Here are some pics of some ATC's that I did ~ they were all mailed out yesterday to some blog friends ~ hope they like them ~ I sure enjoyed creating them. I'm teaching two classes at the end of this month with all kinds of roses and since I've been searching for all different kinds of roses they are stuck in my head ~ hence, the roses coming out in my ATC's. These roses are actually from a set of German decoupage sheets that I purchased many years ago and am now finding a use for. Another reason I don't throw anything away ~ you never know when you might need it.
