Such a Lucky Girl!!!

As many of you know, Pam Gracia, of Soft in the Head, had a recent blog giveaway and of course I entered, clicked my heels, did a twirl and crossed my fingers to become a winner!!!! Pam notified me after I had teased her terribly, and I actually won one of the two mice she had created for her giveaway. I just feel like such a lucky girl! Look at the little cutie that arrived in my mail late yesterday!!! This is "Celebrate"! You know...as cute as it was on Pam's blog, it is even better in the hand. All of the little details and nuances of the surface are just so much better in person....and I'm so excited to give it a new home!!! It just makes me appreciate the process Pam goes through to make her treasures and how extraordinary her work is! She is genius, and just so darned creative!

Look at the shading on the mouse, the detail of the face and whiskers, the little cap made from a sheet of music, Celebrate's magic wand, her tutu and bow tie, how she used the safety pins as arms and nails for the feet, the bell at the tip of her tail, the painting on the box...it goes on and on !! Fabulous!

I feel thrilled for winning and for being able to just correspond with the creator of such magical work! Thank you Pam for sharing your talent and for picking little ole' me as a winner!!! YIPPEE!!

Have a great day everyone and don't forget to click your heels!
Laurie

That Pam is very very talented. Her little mousie is adorable. You lucky duck, Laurie! If you weren't so nice, I'd be jealous (I'm still jealous, but I'm happy for you, too). xo Pam, too
