...is when you come home to find a package on your porch. A package that has come all the way from Australia and has the name of an awesome illustrator on it.
Even cooler is when you open it to reveal this:
You can't tell how cool this frame is from my crappy photos. The canvas is enclosed in a box, but there is a little space around all of the edges so it looks like it is floating. So. Cool.
This is Paulie, a painting that I won in Rachael Jackson's generous giveaway. I wanted to win SO badly, but didn't really think that I would. I now have this adorable little guy hanging in my dining room. Sometimes life is good.
I loved this painting when I saw it online, but it wasn't until I had it in my hands that I could see all of the AMAZING texture it has! I'm pretty much in love with it.
Anyway, I guess what I really want to say is check Rachael's blog, Little Jackrabbits. She is fantastic.
This is a pretty late post, but I received this gorgeous Christmas card from my awesome friend, Cecillia, who is an incredibly talented illustrator. This card is one of her designs and you can't tell, but the houses are BUMPY! I love textured cards!
You can see more of Cecillia's illustrations on her blog!
