I'm So Excited!!! Thanks Debbie, Thanks Jo-Ann ;o)

Ok, first I have to say, it's been one of those weeks! You know when no matter how much you do, nothing seems to get done??? That's me this week! And, I have only started one new painting too! You know there is something up, when I haven't been able to paint! My stomach also felt like someone punched me! Very soar around my hernia. (The next operation I have to get done.) So, I started drinking lots of honey and green tea. I am all better now ;o) I was still feeling down on myself, for not getting any painting done. But, I thought Stacy, stop it! And, I put a smile on my face ;o) Well, wouldn't you know it, I got one BIG surprise in the mail and two beautiful treasures too ;o)

I had a small parcel come in the mail today. And, I thought, who is this from? I read outside the package and it was from Debbie, at CraftyMoose. I thought, what is she doing? I opened the package and found a beautiful homemade card, with a crow on it and inside, was a birthday message for me ;o) I was and still am, smiling ear to ear. Then, I opened the little gift inside! It was my "Skully Girl"! I have been looking at this beautiful pendant in Deb's shop for awhile now! I even asked Deb yesterday, if she could make another? She said the original one was sold! How sneaky! I love it!!! ;o) It is so beautiful! And, the beading work Deb did around it, is amazing!! Hugs Deb!! I love my girl ;o) Oh, mom loves it too ;o) But, I am not sharing! LOL! I am such a bad daughter! Ehehehehhehe ;o)













Now yesterday, in the mail, I got two GORGEOUS aceo's of crows ;o) I discovered Jo-Ann's art through the "Trees of Life Charity". She is an amazing artist, who paints flowers, trees, still life, abstract, everything, in her own special way ;o)! When I found out, she had an Etsy shop, I had to go look ;o) Well, wouldn't you know it, Jo-Ann loves crows too ;o) Of course I had to treat myself to some of her work ;o) I feel so blessed to have gotten to know her! Jo-Ann, is truly a great person, with a big heart! It was so cute, because she treated herself to one of my crows and blogged about mine too ;o) All you crow lovers are fantastic!! Big Hugs ;o) The two pictures below this, are of my crow aceo's from Jo-Ann. My favourite is the one, who looks like he is giving you the "eye" ;o) Isn't he sexy??? ;o)) I love him! I love them both ;o) Actually, I think the one calling out, is his jealous girlfriend, telling him, to get home! LOL!








Have a great rest of the week everyone! I will hopefully get some art done! I bought some black canvases! I am so excited to paint on them!!!

  4. You are so good for giving everyone else pep talks and cheery encouragement; I am glad it seems you can do it for yourself too. Hate to hear that you have been having stomach pain. Keep on smiling and painting and the crows will watch out for you! Hugs and blessings from Robin. P.S. great gifts too, you lucky thing!

  5. Stacy, what a wonderful day you are having, and all those beautiful treasures that have come your way...wow!!! By sharing your thoughts, and your gifts here with us today, I now have a smile on my face, and a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Gee! I hope it's not the flu...just kidding :D

  6. Thank you so much Stacy! I am so glad you like the crows and I LOVE the jealous girlfriend story...you crack me up!

    I absolutely LOVE that Skully Girl pendant...that is freaking awesome! What a fantastic birthday surprise!

    It's so frustrating when you just can't get done what you want to get done, isn't it? I'm blaming it on the full moon...I always get out of sorts then! Your hernia pain isn't helping much, I'm sure. My husband had a hard time with his and had it repaired in the spring. It still bothers him occasionally. I will send you some reiki when I get some quiet time this evening.

    Take care of yourself, Stacy! Hugs :-)

  13. Great surprises!! Black canvas wow - never heard of that - can't wait to see what you do with them!!

  14. Wow Stacy, these surprises would have been even sweeter than that honey in your tea ;) LOVE the Pride and Prejudice skully girl (actually I believe there is a the movie Pride and Prejudice & Zombies in production... maybe Debbie should do more?) & Jo-Ann's crows capturing all that colour in their black shiny reflective coats, just stunning!
    Well it's so exciting only a few days to go Stacy for the B-DAY celebrations, I hope you have something wonderful planned, needless to say my plan of getting something to you PRE-birthday have been dashed (surprised? LOL) but in the tradition our family (we draw out birthday celebrations over 2 weeks or so) one day it will come... when you least expect it... yes we are a very patient, although also very disorganised group ;)
    I hope you are feeling better, look after yourself, I know how you feel about being busy & not getting anything done, don't worry you will really relish picking up those brushes when you get the opportunity (soon I hope)... hugs to your mom too, I hope her toe is almost good as new and healed nicely so you gals can hit the town to celebrate on the 18th :)
