Pay It Forward gift

I mailed this 'Pay It Forward' gift off to Ben yesterday. Ben is a writer so I thought the handmade notebook and (purchased) pen would come in handy for him. As Ben likens himself to a modern day Plato, I painted a Plato statue on the front of a CD wallet. I figure he can use the wallet to store a hardcopy of his book and other computer data. I hope he likes what I have sent and makes good use of it.

I should have an update on the doggy in a blanket painting for you tomorrow. I've had an asthmatic cough bugggin me all week so it's been a little hard to focus on painting.


  1. What a thoughtful PIF gift! I'm sure he will love it. The painting on the CD case is fantastic!!

    Sorry about the cough. I still have a bit of a tickle now and then but mine is mostly gone....thank goodness!

  2. What a great time I had visiting your blog today...My you have been so busy!

    First off the lorikeet is glorious...absolutely stunning...such vibrant color and exacting detail...what a treat for the eyes!...

    I love the plaid blanket and the sleeping captured such a perfect moment...

    Your books are soooo cool! I had a fellow artist offer to show me how to make one and now I think I just might take her up on the offer!

    Thanks for the inspiration you give all of us...a wonderful visit!

  3. He's going to be wrapt Serena! Lovely work you did. Love the Plato painting :-)

  5. how thoughtful are you! what a beautiful gift, I love your painting of Plato.

  6. You're very generous with your Pay It Forward gift Serena, how could he not love it. I'm sure he will appreciate it so much and especially since you put such a lot of effort into personalizing it...Ro

  8. Serena,

    I have been traveling around the planet lately, however I was told yesterday by my mail service that they had received the package and was still holding it for me.

    Thank you so much!

    I have not received my 3 requested for free gifts yet, so I went ahead and re-posted my offering for a free gift.

    If I do not receive my 3 soon, I will be sending you one of my three gifts.
