Thankful


I am so thankful for a very relaxing filling day. I even worked in a little painting and for today, I will call her "Thankful". I like showing my little pencil sketch and it was done during one of those day dreaming, zoned out, moments at the desk last week. Before I started painting her I received this wonderful little packet from Darla with napkins, a vintage photo, a very generous roll of vintage wallpaper border and a very sweet note. Well you see I have already put the vintage paper to use.
Oh, I must tell you that the little Santa postcard was mailed separate. Darla reused a greeting card to make it. You can see it on her blog too but she needed encouragement to trust the post office without an envelope. See Darla, it arrived in beautiful shape. I loved getting it.
More later,
Sharon

  10. Oh my goodness! You barely got the package and you've made something beautiful using some of it already? You GO girl!

    Glad to see the postcard. I've sent "mail art" through the mail before but not with glitter and a glued on charm, that's what I worried about. Glad you encouraged me to test it.
