Me me me . . . I won. . .

What a week... I've been feeling really blah... my "Sofa Squator" was just getting right on my wick... grrrrr. She doesn't belong to me or Mr Hollywood... She was supposed to stay for a week, that was 2 months ago. Fingers crossed she gets a job soon and moves OUT, taking her buzz buzz mobile phone and click click laptop and "Big Swear Word!" hair extensions and hair straighteners with her...... I WANT MY LIFE and SOFA BACK!!!

I have missed Sunday Sketches, Mr Toast's and Paint Party Friday.... just haven't been able to get my act together... Anyway... what a FANTASTIC surprise when I had a wonderful message from Jenny at Love and Peas that I had won her wonderful Journal .  Pop over and see her work... she paints and makes the most gorgeous things... it's an absolute delight...
It was just the pick me up that I needed.... Thank you Jenny.... I'm chuffed to bits... BIG GRIN...

I'm hopping over to Paint Party Friday  to see what you have all been up to... I did manage to finish this picture yesterday... it needs more work... and I can see a story coming here.... when I get time.. lol.. Have a good weekend everyone...

Love the illustration, quite the juggling act she has going on. I can just picture the story and I bet it involves that cute little mouse.

Congrats on winning that very cool journal! I'm glad you got that little pick me up. Sounds like you needed it. Love your drawing and can't wait to see what kind of story you cook up for it. Hope you get your sofa back soon!

I was wondering the same thing...does your sofa guest read your blog? Sorry your mojo has been blah. I know the feeling. Loving your illustration, especially the little mouse in the corner waiting to run across at the perfect time and trip her up, spilling the fish onto the ground. CUTE!! Happy belated PPF. :-)
