Glad you like them, Laurie...happy new year!
Happy New Year All!!!!
I must tell you that my Secret Santa ROCKS!!!! When I heard about this my list thing for the Secret Santa drawing, I thought OK, not the old swish the names around in a fish bowl sort of thing, but hey, if it's easier. I'm good. I get on line to see the amazon ads. Not what I had in mind. So I got a little snarky. My response to the wish list was, "A boulder for my front yard". Wendy Lee Bouldly stood up to the challenge and NAILED IT!! And with aplomb I might add. Pic 1 Boulders jpg attest to that!!! I can't believe she also sent some of her stunning jewelry work: pic 2.
Thank you Santa WENDY LEE!!!!!!!
You are very welcome. Thank you for the cool response!
Happy New Year!!!!
I'm finally home from my holiday travels and opened my Secret Santa gift. Many thanks to my Santa (I suspect it is from Stella and Ray Hofstedt) for this finely stitched and embossed notepad holder. Stamped on the back it says theangrymushroom.com, Lancaster, CA. It is so beautiful and what a lot of work. It is perfect for my needs which mostly consist of sitting at my computer where I can keep my lists and it won't get banged up and damaged going to the shows.
You are welcome! The pencil is for Chinese New Year! You have the very first one - I am off to make more....
It is really nice, Stella. Such fine work and attention to detail. I have to say it really pays off for me running this site. I receive the best gifts!
My grandchildren are Asian/German so I know these pencils well and it was a very nice touch especially appreciated by me.
Wowza Secret Santa Megan Shaw! My much anticipated Secret Santa gift arrived today, meticulously & professionally packaged and...beautiful!!! Megan, I LOVE your photography and what you chose to gift me with. You couldn't have possibly know this, but I have been there! And yes, I love Black & White photography but this is beyond what I could have imagined receiving. This 20 X 16" beauty is already on my wall and will be a wonderful reminder of not only a gift from you but a piece of my history in having been to this beautiful place. (Sorry my photos really don't capture how nicer this looks in person).
Thank you so much!
Who won the $50 Gift card?
Hard to believe this, Rosie, but gifts are even today in the mail. At least that's what my "Santa" told me today ... News tomorrow on the rest of the details. Be watching in your mailbox.
