A Gift for YOU

Last Sunday morning, I was rummaging through my huge stash of napkins thinking I would feel or see or touch inspiration. I noticed that I have many duplicates and even triplicates and that is when I heard the inspiration.

I listened to the whisper that said, "since you have so much, and more than enough, you could share".  So that is what I want to do.  Although, I would like to share with each and every one of you dear readers and followers, I might not have that much but I do have enough for several packets.

On Christmas day, I am going to give away several gifts from my stash of napkins and other "special" papers.

Your comments fill me with joy.  I will "listen to your whisper" to know who to send my gifts to. 

♥ Sharon


  1. I'm still happy to have listened to that little voice inside of my head and joined your class Norah's Faces. I've learned soo much and gained enough selfconfidence to keep on painting. And enjoy it.
    Just received a print of your painting and it's awesome. Soo full of colors. Just brightens this dark winter day.

  2. oh, sharon, you are such a giving person....i have learned so much from you with your on line classes....who knew to color faces in technicolor...i love it....and the napkins, what fun....and the towers....thank you again and again.... hugs and happy holiday.....

  3. We all are gifted enough by just "knowing" you, Sharon!
    When I want to relax, honestly, I love to take a bath, have a cup of tea and enjoy the loooong video of you painting quietly in the morning. I LOVE to see you painting!
    And Towers and Turrets was/is such a joy!
    I have purchased one of your digital collage sheets to make a towers-necklace for myself as kind of a souvenir of the great time I had with you both, Deryn and Sharon, and the Towers.
    I have made other necklaces with my own paintings and some photographs for my friends and familiy, but for myself I wanted to have "an original Sharon".
    Thank you, Shharon! Happy Holidays!

  4. Hi Norah;
    I know what you mean about having extra's and such. I have a penpal who just gave me a little package of extra's and I just love it. It is so nice to receive because you get a little piece of each artist's taste and often times I end up having the same taste as them! LOL.
    Thank you for this opportunity - you are very generous.
    Hugs and many blessings

  5. Oh napkins, that is just what I need. I still haven't finished the last face in the Faces in Technicolor class because I have no napkins!
    I have really enjoyed that class and learned so much from it. Thank you for sharing your teaching gift with all of us.

  6. I've so enjoyed your Towers class and although I am quiet in there, I have learned much from you and Deryn. It is a wonderful class you two collaborated on...you make a great team. I've never done much with napkins simply because I don't ever find any pretty ones. Merry Christmas Sharon and a Joyous Creative New Year!

  7. That is so generous of you to want to share you stash. I have followed your blog for awhile now and thoroughly enjoy your art!
    Merry Christmas to you and I hope you have a very Happy New Year!

  8. I loved being in the Towers and Turrets class and hope to take Faces in Technicolor. So thank you Sharon for sharin' everything and yourself with us.

  9. Pssst--can you hear me? I'm whispering how nice it is of you to want to share your special papers and napkins. Would love to have some!

  10. Sharon, I'm so glad that you're here in blogland and so generous in sharing you wonderful talent with us--Thank you!! I can't wait to see what you bring us in 2011!
    Merry Christmas!!

  11. I've been avidly watching the progress of two birds and was gobsmacked with the final result - utterly adorable. No wonder you were lost for words! I feel so much warmth and love coming off of it. Just stunning.
    Merry Christmas to you.

  12. I smile each time I visit you and your work!! Both continue to inspire me a lot!! I won't whisper but loudly say...Merry Christmas to you and may the new year provide us all with many more inspirations for beautiful art! Marybeth

  13. Sharon, the whispers have gotten louder and louder as I feel I have grown as an artist over the past year. In part because of the wonderful classes I've taken from you online. The journey never ends and sometimes, artfully, we must get out of our own way and let the whispers guide us creatively. You were my whisper.

    Have a Wonderful Christmas

  14. What a beautiful idea and very generous. May all your wishes come true this holiday season.

  15. From your studio to mine would be a delightful trail of inspiration! Wishing you the best of the season!

  16. a manifestation of the true meaning of the season: love! thanks for being so generous throughout the year!

  17. Giving hearts inspire the world! Thanks for all you do. I really enjoyed the Towers class and look forward to taking others. Have a wonderful holiday!

  18. Hi sharon,

    Happy Holidays to You. Oh I sure would love a little bit of your stash. Count me in.

  19. Sharon....I miss it when you don't post! You have amazing talent and a splash of whimsy that I love in your art....I look forward to seeing much more in 2011! Happy Holidays!

  20. My studio is named "Whispers and Echoes" so I have recognized the importance to quiet messages. Imagine and Listen to the whispers from your past in Peace, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  21. How lovely Sharon, I'd love to share mine with you too.
    Have a wonderful Christmas

  22. Hi Sharon,
    Oh what a fabulous idea!
    I have quite a few as well as others.
    How lovely of you to share.
    Maybe next year we could organise a swap of napkins in the mean time, please put my name in the barrel.
    Merry Christmas,

  23. I can't pass up the chance to get mail from you (any mail!). If people don't know how much fun your mail is they are in for a treat.


  24. Hi Sharon. I just met you this year through your inspired posts. I love your art but I think the real reason I come back so often is because of your words of inspiration plus the fact that you open yourself to your readers in such a comical way! I am referring to the bouncing ball video. I loved seeing you, posting as the real you. Authentic people are far and few between.

    Thanks so much!

  25. I am whispering to Norahs/Sharon/Sharon/Norahs, which ever one hears me! lol! Thanks for the opportunity!

  26. Just discovered your blog. The phrase, "I will listen to your whisper" sounds so magical and mystical.

    Today, when I draw/paint, I think I will try to listen to "my own whisper" to guide me. Thanks for a great post - and for holding this giveaway.

  27. When you first got online and saw all the wonderful blogging going on, showing great art, did you ever get intimidated by them? Like I am here? I've been visiting your blog for at least a year but have never made a comment. Now, I know how it seems that the first comment is on your give-away. But, let me say that I am only doing it because I am in such awe of your artistic talent. Maybe by owning a little bit of "fluffy stuff" from your stash some of your magic will find its way into the box! Ah, to will it so. Happy holidays to you & yours. May all the bright lights of the season get just a bit brighter when you walk/drive by. That is my wish for you. Blessings, Tina

  28. Wishing you a Happy Holiday Sharon! Am so pleased to have taken your classes and look forward to more in the New Year!

  29. Every time I open my browser I can't wait to see what you are up to! You are an inspiration and your art is truly beautiful. I can't wait to sign up for your Faces class! I received my Angels Among Butterflies print and I LOVE it! Thank you Thank you!
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and the best for 2011!!

  30. Ah, I am so thankful for that still small voice....
    Merry Christmas Sharon~

  31. "Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back"..~Plato One of my first online classes was Painting Faces, and still one of my favorites! Merry Christmas Sharon!

  32. I am wispering blessing of joy and much creativity to you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
    Thanks for all you have pasted on to us this past year.
