More Gifts…

It was a little like Christmas in March this week around here !!!

I think I received a gift from someone every single day this week.

I told you I was blessed !

Along with the gift of my friend Suzanne’s presence and the beautiful felted treasures that she made me, one gift  I received was from Carla Sonheim.

Remember when I participated in the Art Of Sillyness 3 and won “Squeen for the Day” in the first day?

Here was my sweet, gorgeous, silly prize ! All kinds of goodies from the true Squeen herself. Love the button, the bouncing pen and the Carla Art !!! Thank you so much, My Squeen !

Then as a participant in OWOH, I was lucky enough to win three giveaways !

One was the jackpot of all card making kits from Susan at Pieces of Fate :

I also received a special thank you piece of art from a Facebook friend, Barbara. I had sent her a Rock My World rock with the words “Celebrate Everything” on it – her mantra for the year.

She sent me back this awesome postcard with my own life mantra on it !

Yesterday, I went to Barnes and Noble with my other friend, Susie, Susie Riley.

We shared the gift of both being published in Patti Digh’s newest book, “What I Wish For You”, released early and on the shelf in my local store !!!! Susie has both a piece of art and an essay in the book. Yay, Susie !

I have to say I am tickled pink that my artwork was chosen for the first piece in the book. Such an honor and it feels so good in my artist heart ! So much talent, wisdom and love lie between the covers of this book. It makes me so proud to be a part of it !

So these are the gifts amongst the many that Ireceived this week that I wanted to share with you, Beautiful Ones.

It is more proof to me that the lesson I have learned and have been trying so hard to put into practice wherever I can is true :

Whatever you focus on, you receive more of in your life.

Here’s to light and love growing more in all of our world.

Happy Saturday ! Big Love from the Happy Queen!

Hi Kim,
Such fun goodies.
I loved the orange and yellow postcard and her handwriting blew me away.
I just got an Amazon order and mistakedly ordered two of the same book. I thought of you right away. It's called Art at the Speed of Life. If you don't have it, I'd love to give it to you. If you do have it, no worries.
When you get a chance can you email me at bethanyemott@hotmail.com

Congrats on the new Patti book, WOW!
