Birthday Goodies!

Yesterday I turned 28!
It was a fun day filled with wonderful surprises, birthday cake and fun.

The day started off with pressies (Lot's of lovely deep edge canveses, watercolour paper, goodies from Tascha's shop and Golden's acrylic paints) from hubby and a nice kiss from Ellie lol. Then I went out to meet Mum and a friend for coffee and some pressie opening. As we sat their chatting I noticed the bookshop next door, (which had closed down) was clearing out all their fixtures and fittings and their lovely bookcases caught my eye. I went over and managed to get a great deal for a bookcase and they gave me a card stand too.

They kindly delivered it to my home straight away, how cool is that! Hubby will be putting the bookcase up in my studio tonight so I will be able to share pics and maybe even a new video with you showing the new look studio very soon.

So after all that fun, it was back home for the afternoon. Some work, play time with Ellie and a lovely Lush bath. (Tickled Pink Bath Bomb and Flying Fox Shower Gel, yummy)

Hubby was home by 6pm and we took Ellie for a walk and then went to Mum and Dad's for dinner.
Other pressies included some art books, dvd's and golden fluid acrylics.

I'm so pleased, now I have lot's of new supplies to make more goodies for you.

Talking of goodies, since it was my birthday, I have decided to offer you a special on my Cupcakes painting. If you purchase the original you will get 1 set of 5 printed greetings cards and a print of 'Home'. Simply go to my Etsy store and add the message 'I love cupcakes' at checkout.

Happy Weekend!
