WOYWW 222 - Still busy, still happy :)

Not the greatest picture - the beautiful September sun waned a lot by Tuesday afternoon :(

To the right of the pic are two paintings I was working on - not quite sure what the do in the foregrounds... the mounts are just to judge size of the bit to work on.

The rest of the desk is devoted to this


A stamp, I got made up for my shop, arrived in the post - and I just had to try it out! 
I priced it up, and this is way cheaper than buying custom stickers, and I do  love to stamp :)

Can I say a HUGE thank you to you all, for your lovely comments and good wishes last week? They truly mean a great deal...

And with the power of all your loveliness filling the ether, my first sale happened on Monday!!

This is the true wonder of the worldwide web at its best :)

So, still feeling the love, I'm popping over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see what's happening on your busy, fun desks...

Till next week xx

How awesome… your 1st sale. I love the stamp. I think it adds a personal touch to you and your business. It says "I Care". I see you also threw in a sneak peak as well with your not quite finished paintings. I too look forward to seeing your finished project!!! Congrats again!! (((HUGS)))

I missed the grand opening of your shop! Congratulations, may it go really well. Of course ill make the odd thing for you, but as I am back and forth coping my elderly dad in Wales, I'm not sure how frequent it could be. If you're happy with that. Just give me a hint as to what you'd want and I'll do my best. Great idea to share the profits with the Stroke Association....
