I never win anything. Whine, whine.  But....this time I did!  From  Gloria V.'s blog, this fabulous tote which I already have packed full to take my finished work back to the office on Friday.  I'm sure you artists recognize the painting on it.  She also sent me this picture on photo paper of one of her paintings.  I'm really pleased with that as well and I am clipping it up on the wall next to my computer so I can draw inner peace from it when I need to.  Thank you Gloria!

Please visit her blog soon. She has closed the doors for a few days....probably housecleaning....but it's worth a visit when she reopens.  She has some really awesome art.
