Unexpected Bliss

Hello, lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful week. Mine had been a mix of rush, surprises and as always a dash of chaos in the home area. So I'm definitely eager to unwind this weekend. Other than the unexpected (blessed, blessed) rain than suddenly came drizzling upon us after months of long drought, I also had another surprise that put a very wide smile on my face!

A few months ago, I was approached and invited by La Marelle Editions to join their exceptionally brilliant group of artists to make my work available as their products. If you aren't familiar with them already, La Marelle Editions is an amazingly creative French based company that sells whimsical artistic merchandises for children and the childlike at heart. Once I clicked the link to their site, I knew I wanted in right away! :)

So, voila! There I am now, smacked in the middle among so many artists I have admired for so long, including my all time favorite, Nicoletta Ceccoli! You just can't imagine how over the moon I was when I found out. I guess when you work so hard to find your dream, sometimes you just don't expect to see a glimpse of it until someone comes along and show it to you. :)

To celebrate...

My Etsy shop is just two sales away from 100. So, I will be giving away an 8x10 inches fine art print of your choice with the next 5 sales that come along! You can choose the print yourself at my shop's print section or at my new Society6 shop.

Anyway, I'm glad I could share this wonderful news and celebrate with all of you my bloggy friends and followers. This blog has been such a huge part of my quest to happily ever after, and I must say that I'm truly, truly blessed to have your friendships and support.

Many hugs to you,
