Surprise In The Mail

I won a giveaway!
I don't win giveaways
often, so I wanted to...
My friend, Heidi, from HH Photography sent me a surprise in the mail yesterday.  It is a little "Girl wearing a wolf mask" print by the Illustrator, Paola Zakimi from Argentina.  The print is signed by the artist.  Heidi wrapped the present so nicely and also included a compact mirror and card.
Thank you, Heidi.
I love my gift.
I will put it on my
desk and think of
my sweet friend
Speaking of gifts...
Have you went
shopping yet?

Congratulations on your win! It's a sweet print.

I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping. I heard on the news that Target was going to open at 9:00 p.m. Thanksgiving Day Eve to kick off the holiday shopping season. Toys'R Us, not to be left behind was starting their hours at 8:00 p.m. also on Thanksgiving Day Eve. I guess the employees were not happy about this and were circulating a petition complaining about working on Thanksgiving Day. Sometimes, I wonder about all these stores trying to get ahead at the expense of their workers. They deserve to be able to spend time with their families too!

Yay!!! Congrats to you, my friend. My mail has never been happier than it has been after meeting so many giving bloggy friends. LOVE the illustration.
Nope, no shopping yet. I could barely bring myself to say goodbye to my favorite season of autumn so I never start on Christmas until Santa makes his entrance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. ;)

Sweet print and it will remind you of your blog friend whenever you look at it. I happened to start my Christmas shopping before church last Sunday, when the lady knitters at my church sold knitted hats and scarves. Huge array of colors and styles, low prices, I bought a hat for my sister (sshh don't tell her) and one for me.

It's so cute this giveaway - you are a lucky girl, so far I haven't had the luck to win something :). Concerning Christmas, I have no idea what to shop. But for the weekend I plan to start with my christmas decoration. Have a nice week,

So happy for you, Dear Friend.
I've done almost all my Christmas Shopping. I've been known to shop right after Christmas for the next years' ahahahah.
I'm procrastinating a bit in my Christmas Crafts :(. Need to get into it asap.
Enjoy your gift! Of Love, above all. You're Blessed for having Great Friends. We're all Blessed for Having YOU!!!

Christmas is right around the corner, wow, time flies... can't wait to bake my favorite xmas cookies!

Lila Moonlight said...

That is sweet. I never won a giveaway but maybe I joined very few, that's why. I love illustrations, have many framed ones around the house. I would love to drink that now : ) And no, I haven't started yet, but soon I have to : )

Hi Sheri,
It's always so exciting to win something or get something unexpected in the mail. I have been so blessed by my blogging friends. The picture is precious. It reminds me of the art by Mary Engelbright. I buy her calendars every year. Enjoy!

Heidi said...
