Goodies in the Mail!

When I went to my mailbox the other day, I was so excited to see a package there waiting for me. I was the lucky winner of Mysteles' journal giveaway. I was so giddy when opening the package, you'd have thought it was Christmas. I have loved, loved, loved Mysteles' work for a long time and took her "Gut Art" class last fall (which is fabulous!!!) So I was excited to know that my name was picked to win some of her work. A treasure for sure. The little journal is wonderful...old papers, painted pages, tabs, pockets and all ready to add my own touch to. Also, in the package was a little bundle of papers and trinkets, but when I opened it, I was amazed how much was packed into a little clear envelope. WOW!!! Thank you Mystele, and please go to her website/blog and check out her work. It is so unique and is Mystele herself!!

Fun Watercolor Flowers

I've been having such fun tonight! Over on Martha Lever's blog, she has a couple of videos on painting these cute little 5 minute flowers. They are painted with watercolors on WC paper. I need more practice, but I had so much fun painting these. I think they would really be cute on greeting cards, with a hand lettered greeting. I think I might get busy and paint a bunch of them to try to sell at our Farmers' markets this summer. Thank you Martha! Your blog is always so inspiring to me.
