My original artwork piece from Jodi Ohl arrived today. It was like having a second Christmas. I blogged about winning Jodi's "40 is the new 20" giveaway she did to celebrate her birthday. I won a $40.00 shopping spree and decided to apply it towards an original piece of art. I'm so glad I did....
I woke with an awful head cold this morning and felt so down after such a wonderful Christmas Day at home with hubby, the girls, their husbands and our granddaughter. We had a fun time opening the gifts from under the tree followed by a traditional turkey and ham dinner. Yes, I fixed both turkey and ham, we like leftovers. I was sitting in my chair feeling miserable with a stuffy nose and achy body when the mailman knocked. Hubby went to the door and found the package on the porch. I seen it was from Jody and my mind was immediately taken off that miserable feeling. Jodi is a wonderful artist and the painting arrived wrapped very well. I had so much fun opening it. She included a card and not one but two ATC's. Wow!!! I can now say I have the start of a collection as I have one from Misty Mawn also. Anyways... The artwork is on wood and a lot heavier than I had expected. The back is collaged to look like the way they used to cover the backs of paintings years ago. It's very nice and sealed also. She even placed her business card on the back and it is pretty too. I can't begin to express how much I love this piece and my husband even gave it his approval. For someone that "never wins anything" I sure lucked out this time. So today I had a second Christmas to brighten my day (and I took a nap too). We get to do it all over again on the 28th at my moms house with my family and my siblings and their families and it is always so much fun. I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas (or whatever Holiday you choose to celebrate) and will have a wonderful New Year. Remember too that there is a reason for this season.
Blessings to you all,
