I've Won!!

I am SO excited to learn that I've won Elizabeth's recent giveaway, posted here.  And I won, not one wonderful prize, but two.

Excited probably isn't the best description though - maybe over-the-top, jumping-up-and-down and wanting-to-dance happy would be closer, lol. 

I'd been sitting at my computer when I read Elizabeth's email and let out a very loud 'Woot' and then immediately had to get up and burn off some of that happy dance energy, singing 'I've won!  I've won!  Woohoo! I've won!'  My movements may be limited, but moving was the only way to deal with that level of energy. 

What, exactly, did I win?  The first was this beautiful pillow with it's colorful and whimsical art: 
A bicycle, bird, flower and hearts - what's not to love??  This is one pillow that I won't be sharing with my grandson.  I love him to pieces, but he's a toddler - and messy like most toddlers.  No messes on my new pillow, please!

The second is a place in the upcoming E-Course: Mixed Media-From an Original to Multiple products, which begins in early January!
With all of my focus having been on getting through several major flares (I've called them my A-Z flares because everything had massively amplified - pain and other symptoms from my fibromyalgia, arthritis, degenerative disc disease and feet), making huge lifestyle changes and finding ways to survive with a severe shortage of income, I haven't been making art.

I think that the New Year will see me in a new, healthier and more balanced place, and being in Elizabeth's course will definitely help to give me new incentive and motivation to bring art back into my life.  Woohoo!  I am SO ready!

You can find more information about the course by clicking the link above.  Maybe we'll be classmates!  Be sure to visit Elizabeth's shop, gallery and blog too!
