Happy holidays from us to you!!!


An early Christmas Present from Saray-Viola in Germany!!!!

I have been an avid reader of this talented artist's blog for some time now. A while back I commented on how much I liked one of the ATC's that she posted to here site and she replied back that she was going to send it to me!!! I was very excited to know that I was going to own a piece of her original art. This weekend a huge package arrived here in Carol Stream, IL all the way from Germany. I expected a small envelope with her ATC enclosed, but to my surprise she generously gifted me with THREE pieces of art and lots of fabulous goodies for me to use in my own art. I was overwhelmed with her lovely gift and I'd like you to see all that I received....

This is the original ATC that I commented on and expected to receive!!

This ATC is the first surprise piece...

And this piece was the biggest surprise of all...

And if this wasn't enough of a gift, look at all the goodies I also received...

I have not had much time to create art in the past month or so, and unfortunately I probably will not have time to do so until after the first of the year. Viola's artwork and goodies have inspired me to create right now---but my muse will have to be patient and wait till I have more free time!! Again I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you Viola!! As I have told her before, we are so lucky to have the Internet available to us!! It has made this a much smaller world allowing us to become friends across the miles.
