Thank you Candy!!!

I got something in the mail on Saturday, from Candy at Howling Moon Designs !! Candy had my name as part of the EHAG annual swap, and being a sweety, she sent me my piece early...which, for those of you who REALLY know me is about the best thing in my book not to have to wait another 4 weeks. I was one of those children that tried to peek at wrapped Christmas packages, couldn't wait for my birthday each year, and just flat out likes anything wrapped. Well, I'm telling you this (I apologize Candy) because in my thrill of unwrapping my gift, I failed to take pictures of the lovely tissue paper and tie Candy placed around my piece, and I took it off like a three-year-old! Oops!

Here she is!!! Candy sent me a lovely witch with a skull scepter....and look at her little fingers with black nail polish. I put her out on the table and within minutes she was discovered by Jake, so she is now up on top of one of the china cabinets out of reach!! Isn't she adorable?!!!! Thank you Candy...I just love surprises!!

This is post 197, which means 200 is quickly approaching so you have plenty of time to sign up as a follower before my giveaway. Heather left me a comment and wasn't sure how to follow so here are the directions. On the right side of my blog just below a few examples of my Halloween paintings is a box that is the Google follow box. If you have a blog account you just click on the white button that says "Follow" and it takes you through the steps to become a follower. Very easy!! Hope that helps.

I hope your Monday and week are filled full of wonderful surprises like mine and happy creating!

Awww what a sweet Witch Candy sent to you. I bet she can not wait for yours.

I was able to swap with Candy for a skelly swap and I must say, I love my skelly from her.

I am following....LOL I had forgotten. Wow, 200 posts already! Seems like not that long ago, you were just beginning.

So glad that I had found you, when you first started.

Have a great day Laurie.

Love it! she is very sweetly done. Candy is so sweet.
I am like you Laurie. Peeker, hate waiting and if you tell me I am getting and have to wait I hate that. Drives me batty. Gift wrapping makes it all better. Maybe that is what I need to do to my head. gift wrap it and this headache will go away.
enjoy your witch and have the most wonderful week. Even if I don't win I will be back. Just LOVE your blog!
