I love Gifts and Giveaways on Grateful Thursday!

I love promoting other artists feels so good to share in this circle...I feel as though I have been blessed since sharing my art on my blogs to meet so many talented others, who in turn share so much with me. Laurel of Studio Lolo sent me this wonderful "Queen Bee (of the quilting/sewing variety!)" she said! She included her card to guide us to her Etsy shop where you can see more of her really fantastic paintings. See more of her art on her blog here.
check out the card she sent me with the little cat, "Henry V Jr" coming out of the bag in front! Henry V cops to it, it's his! ;-)
Susan Tuttle is having a giveaway of her new book:
You can see it on
Susan is offering a chance to win her new book in her giveaway: here.
I would love to learn more about using Photoshop Elements and Susan's photography is exceptionally beautiful as can be seen on her blog: here.
Let's see, what else have I to be grateful for today?
1. Henry V only brought us one dead rat this week!
2. I'm all ready for the juried art show jury this weekend.
3. S. in NY continues to find more things in the "Garden of Lia Eden" that amaze
and delight her...her on going stream of appreciation warms my heart no end.
4. I seem to have gotten around all the frustrations for the
"Stone Soup quilt challenge" and am almost done with Stage 1.
5. I got a call from my son who is looking forward to my visit in May.
6. I found two old journals that are taking me back to an earlier time in my life
and making me smile.
My only question is where did the time go and how did I get this old?
Happy Grateful Thrusday to YOU my dear Friends!
