More sneak peaks





These are the sneak peaks from Timona's book in our ABRR. Timona's subject is 'Do your thing and I shall know you'. I was really able to let my colour muse go wild. These books are amazing, the quality of art is astounding. It has been a most successful swap with all books being passed on like clock work, all under the guidance of the very efficient and talented Ursula. Thanks so much Ursula for your wonderful organizing of this great event.

I now have more Dremel power. My dear husband bought me a Dremel blow torch, soldering iron and heating tool all in one.
It uses butane gas. I'd never seen one before. I also received an anvil, clamps, perfume and roses all for my special day. How spoilt am I. The guys I work with have given up on me, nothing surprises them anymore, they said I'm the only female they know who would request a blow torch and anvil for her birthday.

I've also received the Arte y Pico award again, this time from the very talented Margaret. Thanks so much Margaret. I'll pass it on to all you lovely people who I didn't mention the first time.

Happy birthday :) and what fab presents you received. Hope you had a beautiful day. These sneak peaks are driving me insane! When do we get to see the full pages in all their glory? I guess the answer is probably at the end of the RR - I must be patient!

What a fabulous splash of colour, the book looks wonderful.
Happy Birthday Ro, it sounds like you were treated very well by your dear husband. Crikey...that blow torch sounds lethal, you be careful not to singe your hair or eyebrows!

Happy Birthday talented artist you.
Love those birthday gifts. They shout your name.
What a fun way to celebrate and to add to your art supplies so you can go on to create even more awesome art pieces.

Those are wonderful colors and textures in those top two photos as well.

Hello Ro. I love your artwork and your jewelry. I really like the vintage look.
Thanks so much for your comment on my Little Red Heart necklace, and for visiting my blog. I love tools, too. I would rather get them as a gift more than anything else! You are my kind of girl! And you're so lucky to have a husband that understands that! Mine buys me tools, too! LOL
