ONE DOWN - five to go

I was so happy to hear that my Pay It Forward gift was well received by Jane of Loopy Lou's Adventures into Handicrafts. Jane does the most exquisite needlework and her blog is well worth checking out.

I painted a close-up of an Anemone flower for Jane because it was her Mum's favourite flower. I included some extra goodies in the package....just because.

I have two more Pay It Forward gifts finished and ready for mailing and I've made a start on the rest. It has been so much fun participating in this challenge.

  15. Thank you all for your great comments....your input, as always, is very much appreciated ~ :)

    Anna - Yes, I used Matisse acrylics for this particular painting. I'm so glad you asked because I normally note paint details under the image but I forgot...the painting details have now been added to the post.

  21. Wow.... what a generous Pay It Forward Serena! And...so beautiful!

    I heard of Tim Tams from Hugh Jackman ...oh, alright...not from him personally, but when he was on the Oprah show...and I think he had actually brought a package for everyone in the audience....
