* Play Day

Before I tell you about my play day, I want to show you the gorgeous painting I won from Natasha May.  It happened to be 'Happy Frida', so she came home to Mexico where she belongs.  I adore her.  Please drop over to Natasha May's blog, HERE and have a lookie loo.  Natasha does some beautiful, unique work.

Wendy and I had a play day in my studio yesterday.  It was a marathon - 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.  The day went so quickly.  Wendy worked on her beautiful water colour Christmas cards, and I worked on tags and cards for Christmas.  Here are some of the results.  Photos not up to par, what can I say?

Some of these ....

All in all we had a wonderful day, had fun, and good company.  What more can you ask.  Hope you had a lovely day.  Thanks for dropping around.  xoxo  Donna

  8. Oh Donna!!! I hadn't realised you were up and blogging again. I still don't get updates to your blog:S Had a similar prob with another friends blog, but she has a techie friend who seems to have sorted the problem.
