And the winner is........ The lovely Jacqueline
Last week was a week of unexpected gifts. I found myself on the
r e c e i v i n g end of a few blog giveaways,
while having a little giveaway of my own right here.
What an wonderful feeling to win something,
let alone, from a couple of the blog spaces and artists
that I admire.
(And right before Mother's Day- couldn't have timed it any better!)
On the other hand... what a d e l i g h t to be able to give a gift to someone else!!
Thank-you everyone who entered the giveaway.
I am continually amazed to find such sweet, supportive comments here.
I am so grateful for the continued support and the time you all take
to drop those seeds of encouragement.
It was hard to choose only one winner.. and so it is,
that Jacqueline, a fellow flyer from Malaysia,
will be receiving my little birdie house.
Jacqueline has a lovely line of creations that she sews by hand. The words
s w e e t, l o v e l y, w o n d e r f u l a n d m e r r y
are the embodiment of Jacqueline as well as her creations.
I'll be doing another birdie house giveaway in a couple of weeks-- stay tuned for details.
Below, was the blog giveaway that came from Jennifer at StudioJRU
via her shop at DaySpring.
I am an admirer of her work, and have been longing to purchase one of her pieces.
I've looked and looked and couldn't decide. I love them all!
So, I was fortunate to win one~ choice made!
It came this week and was as fabulous as I was expecting it to be.
Thank-you Jennifer, Deidra, Johnna, & Mandy.
The lovely Jennifer
Below is an art piece from a sweet blog written by Miranda.
Her post at Easter, was most meaningful and inspired the painting,
I am going to be entrusted to care for.
Thank-you thank-you Miranda!
The lovely Miranda
And finally, these lovely handmade eggs, were a gift from
Sheila of the CAST team on etsy.
What an lovely group of people!
I am finding the connection to teams on etsy to be invaluable.
I can't believe her handiwork- it's just beautiful! Thanks so much Sheila!
The lovely Sheila
By the middle of last week I was feeling like I should
go to Las Vegas or buy lotto tickets.
I've never won anything in my life, and here I had 3 lovely gifts in one week!
Gratitude to the max!!
In between all of the receiving and giving, I worked on a few new plate designs.
My favorite being...mom l o v e
...inspired by, thoughts of my children ~
grown-up and getting more and more on their own ~
leaving the nest, and starting to fly ~
makes me very proud and happy with a smidge of sad, deep down inside.
And it is with "Mother's Day Love" that I leave you,
with wishes for a joyful and happy celebration
of all Mother's, on this very special Sunday!
