Gifts from Linda!

(this cream smells divine, and is truly a joy to put on!)

I was recently blessed with gifts from a very talented artist named Linda, from Blue Eyed Girl. She is an amazing fiber and graphics artist, and I enjoy visiting her blog and seeing what delicious things she is creating.

A little while ago I saw that she was creating her own soothing cream as well. It sounded so good, I asked if I could purchase some. Instead though, she asked if she might gift me with a jar of it....well YES! How generous of her!

Linda works with such vibrant colors! Here is a gorgeous pin she sent along with her cream. This is going on my favorite sweater and my winter coat!

Linda sent along some of her own stunning fibers! Look at those colors! Lastly and not least, is the card she made me. She put an image of her own antique tea cup on it! What a creative way to share it with me! Isn't it a beautiful cup?

Thank you so much Linda! I so totally appreciate your creative gifts!

I adore the colors Linda works with, and I was inspired to begin a new project that I am using some of her fibers in. Below is a sneak peak of it. It is part of the new venture I mentioned in my last post. I will be teaching a mixed media class on Alter Domino Books at Creative Workshops ,(a wonderful online community!) this fall and I am very thrilled and excited! I was delighted and honored to be asked by Gail to join such a fine group of artists. I love teaching online as any one any where in the world can come together to have fun!

As you know, I do videos for free on a regular basis and I love doing it. I had been wanting to do a domino video, but it became a very large venture, as it has about 8 videos to it! So I thought that it would be a good fit with Creative Workshops. I will continue to do free video tutorials too. I have some new ones coming up for this fall. Lots of fun!

Thank you so much for dropping by!
Hugs to you all,
Terri

I love anything with lavender, so I can just imagine how nice that cream is. Lovely gifts. Your class sounds very interesting, wish I lived nearby. xo,

Jan said...

Linda is truly generous. I'm going to have to visit her blog to see about that cream, too. Lavendar is my favorite...I put on lotion every night before sleeping.

LOVE the fibers she sent that you will be using. The colors you picked are so pretty...nothing like turquoise to put a smile on your face. It's such a happy color.

I for one will be waiting for your Creative Workshop class announcement. Congratulations on being asked to participate at such an outstanding place to create.

I hope your day is going well. My week had been packed with things...but next week is quieter. Maybe I can get some art done then!

Warm hugs....

Exciting news on your new adventure at Creative Workshops! I hope Gail sends out an email when your class starts I would love to take it!
I love the format over at Creative Workshops because you can finish at your leisure and keep going back if you forget how to do something~ for most of the classes!

Oh, you deserve all the beautiful things that come your way my friend. You are a gentle soul and you are an inspiration to many. Sorry I haven't been around much, am trying to get back to my friend's blogs. Hugs!

That pin is a lovely and thoughtful gift that will be marvelous on a sweater or coat. And, just look how the works of one artist inspire another - that's what I love about the arts - such a free exchange of ideas that feed us and make us reach for the next creative thought to bring to life!

I'm looking forward to your new tutorials. Your dominoes are fascinating, too - such detail and an unusual use for them. Who'd a thunk it!

Joy!
Miss Kathy

The pin is beautiful - what fun to receive the gifts. Terri. The lotion sounds pampering and relaxing. Lavender is most relaxing...just smelling the sprigs can bring about total calm and peace.

Blessings,
Marianne
