Mira, Mira~By Surprise!

I must have been really distracted on Friday when this showed up in my mailbox. Well it was the beginning of finally getting some nice weather. So distracted by it being Friday; no homework, all the kids out riding bikes, me on the front porch (on my new porch furniture-see previous post regarding PJ's) doing my crossword puzzle... So by bedtime I still hadn't thought much except, "hmmm, I don't have a subscription to this, I usually pick it up at the newsstand". Then I decided to peruse the issue and it dawned on me that they do send a complimentary copy when they publish your art but, since it had been well over a year since I had submitted anything to them, I brushed off the thought.
Then I flipped to this page and still didn't think a thing until my eye caught MY NAME. It had been so long since I submitted this I didn't even recognize it. I "rock-starred" myself (as Mellie and I like to say-we easily amuse ourselves)! Well it IS fun.
I couldn't be greedy, I had to share. Remember, just when things might seem ho-hum or even when you are busy enjoying one thing another great thing can still surprise you. Have a blessedly surprising day!

Gallery Under Construction...

As I was taking pictures of my most recent art work today before the Paris Flea Market, I was thinking how I take pictures of everything but don't usually do anything with them. So I decided that I'm going to build this gallery post and then move it to archives so y'all won't have to go through all these to get somewhere else. So, here's the start and as soon as I figure out how to move them they'll be easier to look for.
