First cuppa for the day !

I've had the best fun this week. On the australian art forum, one very hard worker, organised an art swap for the festive season. It didn't have to have a xmas theme at all. Our names were put into a hat and we were sent the address of someone on the forum, that was participating, and by the week of the 1st of December, we were to post off our surprise piece. My person was Belinda lindhart, who is a wonderful artist, and specialises in colour pencil. I had no idea what to do, and then I thought, well, we all love that cuppa to wake up to, so out came the paints and......voila. I finished it, and wrapped it up with some green glitter and hearts, using gold tissue and nice ribbon, then off to the post office to send it off to NSW. On the forum tonight , Belinda said she loved it, and displayed a photo of it. So I was happy, that I had made her smile. Still waiting for my xmas swap. Good things come to he who waits. Its getting exciting, wonder what I'll get. ???
