AAF Christmas Swap

This year i participated in the Australian Art Forum's Christmas Swap.
It's something that i have wanted to do for many years but always found some silly excuse as to why i didn't have time. This year i did it and for those who don't know how it works, basically everyone who participates in the swap does a 5X7inch painting or drawing whatever you like.

The organisers in this case the wonderful Michelle, (who i was so lucky to meet earlier in the year), draws a name for each person and sends you their details and you send them your work. The great thing about this is that you dont know who is sending you your present until it arrives, so its all very exciting to see who you finally get.

I was sooo lucky to get this absolutely wondeful little painting from WinnieRose :) .
Its just soooo absolutely gorgeous and makes me smile everytime i look at it :) i have it right here by my desk.
I was able to send Helm a painting and this is the one i created for her.

I have been doing a few of these tree girls lately i just love them. It was soo exciting to hear what she thought when she got it :) What a wonderful idea its just really warmed my heart :)
