I tried it in our kitchen first and I had no sooner placed it on the floor and our dog Mabel was over to inspect. Next thing I knew she was lying down on it. I think she thought she had received the most wonderful early Christmas present. I was thinking more along the lines of a few dog treats and a long walk but hey, I guess she felt this year was her year for an upgrade!

I had the loveliest package arrive this week. It was my Secret Santa package and it was from Jenn of CrazyBliss. Jenn is an incredibly talented artist. I loved her shop the minute I set eyes on it. In fact she was one of the first shops I bought from when I joined Etsy. I just love the expression she puts on her cats and people and I love the vivid colours that she uses. I had previously asked about having her do a custom painting of our dog and look what Jenn sent me as my gift.
I just can't believe it. How thoughtful. How generous. How Jenn!
My package included:
- a 5 x7 original art work of my dog Mabel. So cute!
- 2 prints of Mabel for both my daughters- so thoughtful!
- 2 sets of bubble bliss magnets - love them!
- 2 adorable cat magnets and,
- a set of sweet note cards.
Wow! I know I'm a lucky girl.
I'm so glad I met Jenn on the Canadian forum and so many other talented Etsians that I'm happy to call my friends. As new as on-line friends are for me you have all become a meaningful part of my daily life. You helped me get started as a 'newbie', you've supported me through the ups and the downs and you have most certainly made me laugh. Thank you!
Merry Christmas everyone! Here's to a very happy new year for all!
