I was just thinking I should get busy and write a blog post.... something I think just about every day and then don't do for one reason or another >.<
But today.. wow.. so much to share :D
First off...I came home to find mail... the good kind.. that kind that makes me squee like a fan girl :D ( Okay..I actually got this yesterday, but I found a frame for it today :) )

This was drawn for me by a girl in the Netherlands. She then didn't want to risk it getting smudged on the journey over, so she photographed it, and sent me a glossy print of it :) The print is .. gods I don't know... probably 8" x 12" and I think it looks even better then this pic of the original sketch :)
Next, I find an email from FushionMuse that I won one of their ' Free beads for bloggers' bundles :) So when I get them, I'll show you all what I get to play with :)
And then, as if that wasn't enough to totally leave me grinning like a fool all night, the amazing Lori Anderson, of Pretty Things has finished assigning partners for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party, and I received my email introducing me to my partner :) Maria Horváth of Horimarikabeads :)
Plus, I seem to have broken through my art block, and have a painting in the works :) It's for a girl who provided very little in the way of ideas...aside from the fact that she likes Greenday .. and she thinks pandas are cute... so not helpful lol I toyed with the idea of doing some black and white jewelry with a panda head charm... then while doodling out some ideas, I doodled this guy... originally intended to be an idea for a small plushie..
... but then I grabbed a canvas and start to work...
the background is in shades of green, supposedly reminiscent of bamboo ... lol this is a bad picture of it... crappy light. don;t worry, I'll take another, better shot when I'm done :) Have to see if he turns out as cute as the doodle ;)
Alright... I'd better get out of here. The white is all dry and ready for me to start adding in the black :)
Btw, there is still four days left to get in on the latest Freebie Friday giveaway :) I'm going to be mean and NOT post a link to it... so scroll down a few posts until you find it ;)
