Friends, Published

Hey blogging buddies and friends,
It's been a while. I have my Mum here for a few weeks and I just get tied up with chatting, drinking coffee, visiting and doing like minded things.  Oh, She's also painting!  I'm so proud of my Mum.  Raising five daughters on her own most of the time and a darn good job if I say so myself!

I'm feeling quite special today~I received a lovely personalised hand made journal, card and gift wrapped in the prettiest way possible by one of my bestest friends Kerryanne. 
Kerryanne has taken fabulous photo's so you can pop over here and have a good look.
I know Kerryanne has been very busy painting and sewing  up a new range/collection so pop on over to her website and check out her latest designs as well.

I've recently had this piece published in the Fine Art & Decorative Painting magazine.

I've used a few different techniques~Jo Sonja paints and mediums in this 'Rose through my Window'.

Take care, I hope to get around blog hopping soon.
Hugs, Anna
