"Blossom" - painted and parted with in one day!

Just thought I'd share my most up-to-date mini painting with you. I started this little creation on Friday, finished it Saturday morning and said goodbye to it Saturday afternoon. That's the shortest time I've ever owned one of my creations, I think! I didn't sell it, as I created it for a raffle prize in a coffee morning (or rather, afternoon) that was being held to raise funds for Hull Musical Society, of which I am a member.

I named it "Blossom" and was rather hoping it wouldn't be left on the table at the end - always embarrassing if nobody really wants something that you have invested time in! However, I needn't have worried, as Ros and Andy won it, both members of the Society, and they were genuinely pleased with it!

I also donated one of my hand painted trinket boxes, "Pretty In Pink" as a raffle prize, and that went to the organiser's grand-daughter, who seemed pleased also.

As for myself, well of course I had to win a prize on the raffle - I'm extremely disappointed if I don't win - and I selected some delicious-smelling tubs of body butter. Sounds odd, butter for your body, but they are very creamy and really do moisturise your skin well. I gave one of the tubs to my sister today, and I will see if anyone else I know in the family or amongst my friends would like any of the others - I certainly won't use them all, as there were 5 tubs in the pack. My favourite is the Brazil Nut scented one. My sister took the Almond scented one, and the remaining ones are Mango, Cocoa Butter and Bergamot.
