|4 x Christmas Cards|
I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who sent positive thoughts and good vibes out into the cosmos for me on my last post here, when I mentioned our life changing move to Scotland and the hope that I wouldn’t be stuck in Northern Ireland too long waiting for our house to sell. The power of positive thought obviously works because, that very day, we had an offer on our house which we accepted!! Yay!
It is now all officially official – the sale should hopefully complete mid-December and I’ve handed in my notice at work to finish up at the same time. I’ll then have to move back in with my folks for a few weeks but we’re going to look at some houses in Scotland at the end of November so hopefully one of them will be perfect for us and we get fully relocated in the New Year. I’ve even finally been able to update my Facebook status to let all my friends know that it’s actually happening!!
Now, because of all that is going on, I doubt if I’ll get much time to be creative (other than creatively trying to find ways to fit all our belongings into as few packing boxes as possible!) so it may be the New Year when we get relocated to Scotland and I unpack all my paints and canvasses before I really get back into art again. Then I promise to be back with a vengeance as I won't be working, not full-time anyway, so will hopefully have all the time I ever dreamed of to get creative and blog about it!
Next weekend we’re off to Amsterdam to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary/ 7th anniversary of the day we met and, to be honest, we’ve hardly given it a moment’s thought what with the whole Scotland move overshadowing everything. Still, it’ll be lovely once we are there and we plan to see all the cultural things I didn’t get to see the last time I was there (on my sister’s Hen weekend!)
Now, this is after all an art blog and by way of thank you to everyone for all their positive thoughts, I thought it was high time I did a give away as I’ve never done one before. So, what with all things Christmas already having made their insidious way into the shops and our subconscious, I thought it might be appropriate to include 4 Christmas cards as well as 3 ‘Walkies’ and 3 ’Purrfect Nostalgia’ greetings cards as well. If you'd like to be included in the give away just leave me a comment at the end of this post and all the cards will go to the first name I pick out at random (using one of those random pickers!). (If you aren’t already following my blog and/or my Facebook page and wanted to start doing so, I’ll add your name in twice *she bribes to push her follower numbers up!*)
I’m linking to Paint Party Friday and will aim to get round as many folk as I can this weekend as I know I have been a bit remiss with my blog reading as well as my blog writing and art-making!!
I’ll announce the winner of the give-away next week before we go on our trip so stay tuned!!
