A delectable giveaway and my friend…

I’m experimenting today and writing this post using Windows Live Writer!  So far so good… and thank you SO much for your wonderful words of wisdom regarding my blogger formatting problems!

I am SO excited!  So, SO excited!  But not for me (although I do have some exciting news to share with you about me soon!) but for my darling and talented friend, Kerryanne of Shabby Art Boutique.  For Kerryanne has launched the most gorgeous new website for her well-loved company, Woodberry Designs {by the Sea}.

Go take a look and feast your eyes on all the pretties on offer – the most beautiful shabby chic original paintings – painting and sewing patterns – faux cakes (droooool)… and more eye candy than you can shake a stick at! (Editor: why would you want to shake a stick?) (Vikki – I really don’t know, it’s just an old saying!)  (Editor:  Ok, then, we’ll leave it in.) (Vikki: Why, thank you!)

To celebrate, Kerryanne is having a delectable giveaway and I’ll give you a clue… YUM YUM!!! {insert rubbing tummy in clockwise direction, here!}  But before I show you photos of the giveaway treats, I’d like to share some of Kerryanne’s designs with you!

First off, is this amazing original painting of Kerryanne’s on a vintage wooden box.  Mr SUDs was in awe when I brought this piece home with me from Kerryanne’s studio! 

Cups and strawberries box

What do I use it for?  To store my paints in, of course!  It lives in my craft space usually but the light isn’t very good in that room so we took these pics outside.

The reason I store my paints in it is because I took decorative painting lessons with Kerryanne while she lived in Melbourne.  Here is a gorgeous Santa canvas I painted, one of Kerryanne’s designs of course!

It won’t be long and I’ll be putting it up on my wall for a few weeks longer!!! I’m painting some teacups at the moment, but will show you more on that when I’m closer to completion.  I also plan to paint (and sew) some designs from Kerryanne’s Whimsical Christmas Doodles book, here, I’ll show you…

This is a fantastic book, and great for sewers as well as painters, for you can trace and stitch the designs.  :-)  (Click on the above image to take you to get more info)

Now you know why I’m so excited about Woodberry Designs on the Sea!!!  And here’s the giveaway details:

Okay, I won’t keep you any longer as I know you’re just busting to get on over and visit my dear friend!  Just click here!

Until next time – happy drooling!  Hugs! Vikki x

So chooky doodle, what did you think of live writer? Easy peasy huh. KerryAnne's work is stunning isn't it, I love your paint box, the cups with strawberries are absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to see your cups when you have finished, I bet they will be beautiful. Are they fine bone china type..... hurry up I want to see them quick.

What lovely things you have written about me Miss Vikki and I didn't have to pay you a cent [giggle].

Glad to hear you are still painting as well as stitching. I do so miss our Tuesday night get togethers.
