A shower of good things! and some updates

Two weeks ago I ordered a pendant from Lisa M Griffin. She just opened her Etsy Shop and I decided to buy this charm with the lady bug (symbol of good luck). If you haven´t visit Lisa yet please do and see what wonderful things she has in her Etsy shop as well! The order was accompanied by some lovely gifts! A card with one of her (real) photographs, she has a Nikon (me too) and makes wonderful pictures! A lovely bookmark with a wonderful quote and a fun postcard with vibrant colors! " Seize this very minute. What you can do or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." ~Goethe~ Thanks Lisa!!!! The things are just wonderful! Glad to have you as a blogfriend! You are a wonderful friend and artist! My "Prince of Darkness". I promised Aunt Teri a picture of Sjimmie. Not a real good one. As soon as we have some nice weather here I will take some pictures outside. Here is Sjimmie yesterday, keeping me company while I was working. I also ordered this Mona Lisa (with capcake!) from Diana. Every now and then I popp by her Etsy shop, first of all to see her wonderful new additions but I noticed that every time I was relieved the Mona Lisa was still there..... So I had to buy her, since it was a unique piece of art. I'm so happy I did! I also bought the little mini painting with the flower, which is so gorgeous as well! And these wonderful things were accompanied by 2 lovely gifts! The banana split pendant! En a lovely bracelet which goes wonderful with my uniform I think! Diana, thanks again! And I am also so happy to have met you in blogland! You are a gem! Here is my desk, which is far too small! And I am so sloppy!! But Sjimmie doesn't mind, he squeezes in no matter how much stuff there is. I was working yesterday to prepare the workshop for Saturday. I worked until 1 o'clock. I was so excited and my head was full of ideas so I woke up at 6 already, still bouncing! And las but not least! It has been raining awards! This beautiful awards was presented to me by Museswing! She has designed this one herself! We both love orchids! Thanks Cynthia! I'm honored! These next two awards I got from Soulbrush! Baie dankie skattebol! Again I'm honored! And Happy! Yippie, all these awards! Here is my award to all of you! click here to pick up your copy in the right size. No rules! Just enjoy it and pass it on! Like love. Don't keep it to yourself....... And now I'm off to do my round of blog visits. Sorry I have been neglecting you . (Today just in English: so much to do, so little time.....)
