Art From The Heart

Hello friends and followers - I'm glad you are here! Thank you so much for entering my current giveaway and spreading the news about my blog - you are all amazing - the response has been incredible - I sincerely thank you for your lovely compliments! I have been having the best time visiting/reading your blogs and seeing all the creativity!

...for those of you visiting my blog for the first time (or if you haven't visited in several days), there is still time left to enter my milestone giveaway - just check out Saturday's post...

Today I received the most special package in the was from Karen at Purplecatscorner (I hope she doesn't mind me sharing it here - I just couldn't resist!)...I found Karen on Twitter through a mutual follower - I visited her Etsy shop and immediately fell in love with her art....then I found her special blog and I was hooked! Karen is a mixed media artist and seeing her original work automatically brings a smile to my can tell each piece is definitely "art from the heart" me, her artwork is full of joy. Last week, to celebrate 300 followers and 100 Etsy sales, she had a blog giveaway....I shy away from any blog giveaway related specifically to cross stitch/needlework, as I am blessed to have many projects and a stash to last a lifetime....but Karen's giveaway was not needlework related, so I took a chance and left a comment....sure enough, I was a runner-up (I feel so extremely lucky)! I received both a magnet (approximate size 2.5"W x 3.5"H - seen right) and a mini print (approximate size 3.5"W x 5.25"H - seen left), both of her original work - both truly WONDERFUL!...and of course, after getting her package, I *had to* go order several more pieces from her Etsy shop. :-) I just had to share a photo of the pieces I received today with you - hopefully they will make you smile too...
