Hello my Lovelies, our lovely Julia HERE the hostess
with the mostess host our snooper oops Deskers day.
Grab a cuppa and have a look around see what on all
the desk tops..
What's on mine lots..
I have to make a few quick Christmas cards , for
the Ladies at water fit, thankfully my DS gave me some
card that were embossed so just going to add a bit to them,
some Christmas music torn sheets and  a few stamped tree.
I'm just starting these not sure what else I'll do... 

A sweet little Asian Lady from water fit brought me
a small long narrow plastic bag with these small pieces
of Japanese silks, I ironed them and look how gorgeous
they are, they came from Japan, I was so excited, I am
going to make a dress, maybe a kimono with them :O) ,
 see the shibori @ pieces on top, I looooove them...

A knock on my door and there was the wonderful
UPS fellow, bringing me my prize I won from the
Lovely Meihsia @
She is a wonderful designer for Faber Castell.
I did a happy dance flying around WHOOT, WHOOT.
Look at all the goodies, I am blessed.
10 gelatos, with a stamp a wonderful book with different
paper, all the tools for the gelato's some beautiful water
color pencils a fabulous book to make with small canvas
pages and YES a stampers big white pen ooww I have been
wanting one of those...
That's it for today, thanks so much for visiting my nest,
hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll be flying
 around to visiting after water fit..

That is most certainly a happy dance prize, how wonderful. For my birthday back in May one of my lovely friends gifted me a pack of Gelatos - you will love them.
How beautiful the silk pieces are, those are so special and I cannot wait to see what you share with us once you create something.... of course it will be spectacular!

What a fabulous prize! I recently picked up some gelatos. I think they will be lots of fun. Good luck with the quick and easy Christmas cards. If I don't get motivated soon mine will be even quicker than that (a blank card with the words 'envision your favorite holiday scene here'). Happy day!

Those cards look great and the lovely silks - oooh, my wings are flapping wildly at the colours. I want to reach out a wing and stroke them! You are going to make a kimono - how clever! I would love to see it! Meihshia is such a lovely artist! I love her mixed-media creations! Well done, you, Dianne for winning this wonderful prize!It couldn't have happened to a nicer Magpie!
