My latest commision & I treat myself :)

Last night I finished this commision of a lovely dog called Molly, it is a Christmas present from a friend to a friend.  She really loved it, thank goodness and has commisioned another 2 dogs in the NY.

This is the first portrait I have done since the ones I showed you of my son, which I did about 14 years ago, sheeeesh I didn't realise it was that long ago, no it can't be...think I must have just made that up lol.



I very rarely buy items from blogging friends, in fact I have only ever done it once before and that was these lovely items from Lalabibaby




Gorgeous hanging heart which is now in my bathroom and....



These adorable cats which are looking down on me as I type as they are hanging from my shelf unit in the kitchen ...I just adore them, fell in love at first sight lol...

Anyway this morning 2 packages arrived from Bloomin Myrtle and the contents were just precious and I fell in love all over again with my 2 new friends



My Sleepy Snowman and...




The gorgeous Snow Angel...they are exquisitely made and are just scrumptious










and thats not all I also got this lovely Bedpost bag that was supposed to be for a work colleagues 8 yr old daughter but..... sorry sunshine no way no day I'll get her something else :) evils my middle name lol







Elaine attaches the prettiest of tags on her items








so am now off to pick her brains and ask her how :)
Well I think thats all folks signing off now
Stay safe xxx

You are a very talented artist and I congratulate on such a fine piece of artwork - well done! I am sure that many more commissions will soon be coming your way.

Illness, worry - and a computer that wants to die! - has caused problems here at our end - and now the weather!

Hoping that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy 2010,

love Andrina XXX
