Did I mention I'm a Winner yet?

I've been meaning to get this posted for some time now and with all of the holiday preparations it kept getting put off. On December 8th Jodi over at sweetrepeats did a "40 is the new 20 Giveaway" to celebrate her birthday. (Guess how old she is!) Of course I had to enter as I love the artwork Jodi creates and sells in her lucysweetlucy etsy shop. I never expected to win as I am forever entering giveaways and sweepstakes and never win a thing. Jodi's giveaway to the winner is a $40.00 shopping spree at her etsy shop. Well I won for a change. I found out Dec. 14th that I was chosen. After browsing at all of the wonderful "eye candy" in her shop I chose to put the $40.00 prize toward purchasing an original artwork. I chose this one:
"Hers and His" reminds me of how good my husband is. He sets up the coffee pot every night so that coffee is ready and waiting for us when we wake up in the morning. Isn't that sweet of him? My new painting won't be here in time for Christmas but that's OK. I have just the right place already picked out to hang it.

If you have never viewed Jodi's blog you absolutely must, she is a wonderful mixed media artist, mom and blogger. She keeps it real and admits to often feeling overwhelmed with it all; children, work and leading a creative life. She also displays wonderful photos of new pieces she is working on. Jodi was featured in the Nov/Dec issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, you'll find her on page 40. I love that magazine! I'd say she is doing great including creativity in her life. So have any of you won anything lately? Oh, and a big thank you to Jodi and a wish for much success in the future.
Happy Holidays,
