Oh my gosh. I’ve been dutifully buying raffle tickets from school children, the scouts and pretty much anyone that asks for years. I’ve never won a thing.
Blogging completely changed my luck.
I won the drawing for an art print of my choosing at The Contented Crafter. All I had to do was leave a comment on her blog (which is so delightful that I do that anyway.) She drew names from a teacup (my favorite beverage, by the way), and I won. Serendipity!
Pauline is a mixed-media artist, photographer, and all around talent, blogging from New Zealand. She shares her art and artful process with her readers. We’re treated to the occasional story about her charming cat, Orlando.
Pauline leaves fun and funny comments on various blogs and gems of wisdom along the way. I hope to meet her on future travels.
I picked out a print of the Butterfly Sprite. It arrived yesterday, along with a lovely note and one of her greeting cards. I’m feeling as cheerful as the lovely sprite.
Coincidentally (more serendipity) I’m working on a framing project for one of my clients, so I took my new print to the shop and had it framed just a day after receiving it the mail. I promise to share a picture when it’s framed and hanging on my wall. I’m currently scouting for the perfect spot. Stay tuned.
Thanks so much, Pauline for bringing art and cheer into our home.
The Contented Crafter sells her work on Etsy. You can read more about her process on her blog or on Facebook
