Call me lucky. Call me grateful!
So, I was cruising through my favorite artists' blogs, the usual routine every few days or so, and I come across a give away on DJ Pettit's blog. I have purchased her work on etsy before, seen her marvelousness at Art Unraveled, and I have slobbered over my desk looking at her website enough times to know this was probably just a dream I was having. So, I get a stick and poke myself, and discover it was not a dream at all. So, I entered knowing full well, that would be the end of it, but fun to pretend all the same. THEN I got a message from Kelly Kilmer accusing me of winning Kelly's prize. What? Nope, I checked DJ's blog again which said Jane Eileen had won, no mention of me taking Kelly's prize. Silly girl. Anyway, I sent DJ my mailing address as fast as I could and today the motherlode arrived, more than 80 pieces of happiness in clever packaging: big, bigger, teenie tiny, on fabric, on paper, on canvas, on magnet, one with real stitches in it sewn to a button card. I am one lucky girl, but I am also VERY grateful that there are amazing people in this world that not only have big talent but also have big hearts. YOU made my day, DJ. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
