3 Things

There are a 3 things I want to share with you tonight ...

1. Sneak peak of Faux Gogh chair
2. New Journal
3. A new blog discovery

I have been very busy this week working on a new Faux Gogh chair. This one is for my son's choir's silent auction ~ they're travelling to England in the spring. Concordia Concert Choir's upcoming silent auction is on March 6th. (I want to have the chair completed by the end of this week, just in case the chair is needed for display before the auction). The event will also include entertainment by The Nathan Carroll Band in addition to the silent auction. 
All the fun will take place at: 
The Docks Bar and Grill
137 Avenue and 66th Street in Londonderry Mall, Edmonton
Doors at 6:30 pm, Music and Auction at 7:00 pm- 10:30 pm

Tickets are $10 in advance only. Phone (780) 479-9304 or (780) 479-9313 to purchase tickets.
Remember, the chair is not completed yet, so the white part showing at the bottom of the photo will not remain white ~ I have big plans for that space.

Look! I got a new "Keep Calm and Carry On" journal. When Greg and I were in Indigo tonight, I spotted this beauty and knew that that is what he should give me for Valentine's Day (I know it's a little late ~ but who cares). Ever since I saw the "Keep Calm and Carry On" goodies first appear in Blogland, I wanted something with the slogan on it, and it would seem that everything comes to him (or her, in this case) that waits. Yay!

Finally, I want to tell you about a new-to-me blog that I discovered while browsing through the latest Somerset Life magazine. 52 Flea is the work of a lovely, talented artist named Laura. And! she just happens to be having a really nice give-away in celebration of her first Blogoversary. I hope you'll check out her ever-so-lovely blog. I'm going to add her site to my Beautiful Blog section too.

That's it for now friends ~ cheers!

Thank you ladies for your kind words. What I'm excited about is that the sneak peek I've posted isn't my favourite part of the chair. Oh bliss! I love painting!!
