Taking Flight!!

(Kelly Rae print)

No not me (except metaphorically!!) Today was just wonderful - I received my pre-ordered copy of the beautiful and very inspiring Kelly Rae Robert's book "Taking Flight"! One of the advantages of pre-ordering was that Kelly Rae included a lovely print as well! I am SO happy - I just want to go to bed and read my beautiful new book. So far a quick look (very quick as I really want to SAVOUR this book) has made it perfectly clear that I am going to just LOVE this book. Love all the butterflies...

To make my week even better, my sister is coming on Wednesday to stay for a few days. She lives in Melbourne (for anyone who is geographically challenged like me that is a long way from me!). Such bliss...

And to share some good blog news - my friend and sometime trading partner, Ruth Kelly (who lives over in Canberra) has started a blog! Check it out here. Ruth was the creator of this beautiful canvas that is now beautifying my reading nook.

Hey, Debbi. Long time no see, as they say. How've you been? Just wanted to stop off and say hello. That book looks wonderful, by the way!

I'd seen this book on Amazon and wondered about it, sounds like you think it's absolutely worth it!!! Might have to see if Natalie can get them in at work to sell at Scraptivate! One can never have enough good art books. lol
