Today I received a cute pair of earrings I ordered from Ebay a few weeks ago. Shopping on Ebay is great, and yes, you don't get that instant gratification but who doesn't love receiving a package (gifts to yourself) in the mail? ;) For less than a dollar I thought these bow and pearl earrings were a great deal.
On a different subject, I've been thinking a lot about what my talents are and what hobbies I should pick up again. A few years ago I painted a pop art portrait of JIM MORRISON (The Doors) for Love for his Birthday. I couldn't find anything in stores so I figured I'd take the matter into my own hands & paint something. He loved it, and I admit, as someone who is not blessed with the ability to draw well, I was pretty impressed with myself. A few months later, I painted a self portrait. I bit off more than I could chew as the piece was very detailed and tedious. After I finished it, I took a several year hiatus...until last night. Christmas is around the corner and I decided to memorialize my beautiful sister in a painting and send it to her. The original picture and finished product are below. It took me about two hours and came out beautifully. I hope she loves it as much as I do. Operation Paint is officially back on!
Time for me to sign off...Love and I are going to make it a movie night with some chocolate wine.
