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!!!
