Marie Antoinette Valentine Gala

If your a usual visitor of my blog, then you know how much I love the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.  I have made some amazing friends and the art swapping ain't so bad either, lol.  I love that we are all serious about our art and doing our best but also very supportive of one another.

A couple of weeks ago, we had our second Gala.  Our first one was during Halloween and was hysterical!  Our last one had a Valentine theme and the time flew by way too fast. We all met up to chat and had games and giveaways.  It was a huge success and we all learned so much more about one another.  We also learned how goofy we can all be.  Imagine if we were in the same room.  I would be laughing so hard, I would have to wear diapers.

Below is the amazing gift that I won from the super talented Melanie from Artful Interludes.  She is a wonderful artist and a dear friend all rolled into one. Melanie comes up with these difficult riddles and trivia questions.  But I won the first one and was giddy for the rest of the day, because I knew that whatever was inside this gorgeous box would be wonderful!

See what I mean!  I'm going to be having fun with these treasures for a few months! And so many of these items, like the charms, and cake, and flowers, were handmade by her.  What a generous gift!  Thank you SO Much Melanie!  The best gift, of course, is the fact that we have become much closer over the last few months and I know she is a true friend and has already been so supportive and inspiring to me!

Below is a wonderful gift from my dear 7 friend, 7 Terri from Designs by Terri Gordon.  She is the 7 friend that I did the below 7 post for.  LOL! 

I love all of these wonderful fabric images that I can use in my art!  They are just wonderful and she totally spoiled me!  Thank you so much Terri!  You are so good to me, my dear 7 friend.  Terri and I are like two teens in high school when we chat.  We are so silly and she just makes me laugh so hard!  Just another wonderful gift that I have been blessed with. 

And of course, I have to thank my other dear friend, and Queen Bee, Rella from Faeriluna for making this event so much fun, and for doing all of the hard work that she does to keep MAMA running so smoothly! She is the owner of the group and just a wonderful ruler and friend.  We are so lucky to have you Rella!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day and are blessed with wonderful friends like I am!

Hello Rhonda7, Oh what a beautiful prize from Melanie, she always sends the most beautiful things. You are so welcome, I did not send much, but I am excited to see what you create. I hope you and Sophia are feeling better. My son is sick this week at college and will be home this weekend for spring break, so I will probably get it, I always do. I had a great time at the Gala with you, you are such a riot. Some day we will meet, I just know it. Take care and get well. Love and Hugs, Terri
