This past week was pretty quiet ~
Lent began, a quiet time for me as I try very hard to keep the hilarity to a minimum and begin the journey.
I finished a design challenge for Deryn's Alchemy of Objects class (see the side bar).
The challenge was "Texture"....
The texture in my piece is both physical and visual. I'm really enjoying this online class. We're working on the elements of design and creating pieces which reflect those elements in each weekly challenge.
I made a trip to the dermatologist to have a couple of suspicious intruders removed from my collar bone. No need to worry ~ they're gone ~ and now I have two more divots to prove I really enjoyed that sun in my younger days!
I was debating with myself whether to write a post for this week.
I just didn't know what I would write about ~ a very quiet and uneventful week....
Just when I thought I had made my decision, Postman Mike came with a package!
Her gracious heart agreed and the sale was made! My new purchase was in the package!!

|nestled safe and sound was the necklace|
|a beautiful creation - sterling silver, pyrite cubes, various ab gemstones, copper rondelles, aquamarine nuggets, vintage silver chain and rosary bead|
Yvonne lives in Houston, Texas, and we met a year ago at Art Retreat in the Desert. We've taken a number of the same online classes and share a few Facebook Groups as well.
We got to catch up again this past February at Art Retreat in the Desert, and even had a class together..
Yvonne has a heart as big as Texas and I'm blessed to have her in my life.
There was another box in the package ~ a surprise gift from my sweet friend!
|Yvonne, you had me at the pink heels!|
Look-y what was waiting inside!
|Scrumptious goodies for me to play with, and I can hardly wait!|
You know you're one of them, so you know you fill my heart. Thank you for your visit and I'll be back next Monday!
