Mr Postman Brought me Peace

I received this beauty in the post late last night when I got home. Sal didn't tell me it had come as he wanted it to be a suprise. I was so happy, like a kid on her Bday I opened it right up :)

It's a token of gratitude from the Amazing Jennfier Float! (you big sweetheart you!) Just for me being me and us being pals and keeping in touch. It as so sweet and truely made my day especially since I just had my wisdom teeth pulled (I know 30 is late for that ok?).
Look at that great detail of music notes! for more. Well I've had an idea breawing in my little witches head for some time about a piece for Miss Jen and I think I will begin work on it right  away. I was trying to finish the piece I am currently on, but you can't fight the muse when the muse is pulling you one way!

It's Been Awhile

Hey all, I know it's been a few days since I have posted  anything on here, but I have been very busy. No worries, it's the good kind of busy. I've been working on some painting and using some new medium in my paint so I'm very excited and seems I can't keep my hands off a canvas. I hope to have a piece done tonight. Thank you all for you kind words on my blog and here are some shots of necklaces I made as holiday gifts.

Soldier's Angels

Hey all, I decided to post this information for those who might be interested in joining this great organization.
Soldiers' Angels
is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded by the mother of two American soldiers, we are an international, volunteer-led organization supporting America's men and women in uniform. With over 30 different teams and projects, our nearly 200,000 volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways.
There are several ways to help, from donations to different parts of the organization that may need help. I do 2 things:
1. I "adopted" a deployed soldier and send a care package once a month and letters to him once a week.
2. I am part of a personalized letter writing team that sends letters to different soldiers every week. You can get up to 3 names and send letters every day I think if you like to be a part of it. I requested 1 name every Monday and Friday. You send 1 letter to the name, that's it!
Our Motto is "May No Soldier Go Unloved"
These guys and gals are our first team and line of defense. They help us all to sleep a little easier and the least we can do is show our appreciation for their sacrifice. So help out if you get a chance, nothing is too small to do. Join me in making sure
NO Soldier Goes Unloved
