I have received three out of four of the gifts that I won from OWOH. I decided not to wait for the fourth gift, hopefully she will send it soon.
In the meantime I wanted to give my thx to the other artist who did sent their gifts. Please make sure you stop by and see what they do, up close. It's definitely worth the visit.
First up is my winnings from the UK and Sherry Edwards. As you may recall Sherry also won on my giveaway and received her poster of Mick Jagger in good shape....So Mick is in the UK where he rightfully belongs. I received a sweet little package that contained the Distressing Inks and pads...VERY happy about that to say the least. Since I'm not a "paper" artist, I had never seen these before and was hoping I would win them to see what I could do with them. Apparently I'm in the dark about these, which worked in my favor, since I REALLY wanted to win them...yay! me.
Next up turns out to be the last blog I visited and is at the top of my list of favorite gifts...no hard feelings to anyone else...but seriously, how cute is this little Queenie? She came all the way from Pennsylvania and Lorraine, who was a part of a group blog that was all about dolls. But you guessed it, I pretty much won one of the very best ones there...seems I got the luck of the draw. I have her hanging in my parlor, which happens to be my painting room as well...Her name is Sprite. She makes me smile.
My next gift came all the way from Australia where Liv Scarcella does her work. She does scrap/paper art and she sent me the sweetest little charm bracelet. I chose the frog...good feng shui! And here he is sitting on my antique leather tooled chair...seemed apropos for the occasion. Again, you may recall that Liv was also a winner of mine and she received her Janis Joplin poster just last week!...it takes some time to get things to Australia...but home she is.
And last but not least, this is my final win from Sylvia in Illinois...I hope she is alright and will send out my gift soon...this is special, considering it is the final OWOH. So my sincere thx to everyone who not only participated, but pulled my number. And thx to the many new friends I added to my heart.
This was a good year.
