Journal pg 15,16 and a snowman plate

"Follow your heart~Follow your dreams"

A design by Margo Wightman on a wooden plate. I painted this up for a possible gift exchange, but the decision hasn't really been made IF we will even do this yet. For once, I'm prepared if necessary :) It's a great feeling!

Believe it or not, I'm scheduled for a slight 'TRIM' today and after the last haircut, you can bet I'll be paying more attention to the clip, clip, clipping going on :) The length is just where I want it now after almost 7 weeks, but it does need to be shaped up a bit.

One last thing I wanted to share with you! I tried this recipe the other night. It was SO good and takes 'comfort food' to a whole new level! I made a smaller recipe of this and I'll warn you, it's hard to stop eating it. NOT good, but sooooo good.........make sense? :) Thought I'd share!

Hi Darla!
I love the "Courage" painting, its beautiful, great colours too.
I havent received the painting yet, but everything here in Gibraltar takes a looong time, and I'm hoping that I'll get it very soon! I'm expecting that the Xmas post is also delaying the process too. I will keep checking my letterbox with much anticipation! And will let you know as soon as I get it:-)
