Art in the Mail But Not in the Studio!!

Thanks to everyone for your comments yesterday. At least I know I'm not alone in my feelings about this book. There are so many people reading it right now that I thought maybe I was just missing something about it....but I should have just gone with my gut feeling from the beginning.

Once again I had incredible mail! I won one of the runner-up prizes from Lisa's giveaway and it arrived late yesterday afternoon. She also included another surprise....but not for me! She sent a gift to HB!! He was stunned to say the least.

Here is my runner-up prize....


"in our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love."

Isn't it beautiful? I love the quote and all the colors. How could anyone have a bad day when they have this to look at?!!

And here is HB's gift....



I wanted to get a photo of HB with his new mug but he had an early morning appointment so I couldn't.

He just can't get over the fact that she sent it to him. But then he doesn't know Lisa!! Even though he hears me talk about her all the time! Poor guy! He has such a difficult time trying to keep everyone straight in his mind. He'll say "is she the one who lives in (fill in the blank)....that's the only way he can remember all of my blogging friends!

I'm still in a rut with my art so if you've sent me something in the past month or so and I haven't sent anything in return don't give up on me. I haven't forgotten anyone but my creativity has decided to take a vacation. I've been sitting in my studio every day but nothing happens! I'm just a blank right now. I don't feel bad or sad or depressed or anything like that but I'm not connecting with my creative side at the moment. We seem to be on different wavelengths right now. But when we make contact again I'll get some things made and sent off. I won't forget!!
