A Most Incredible Artist and The Sweetest Friend!!!!

As some of you know I have been having a difficult time with my Lupus.... I really do not wish to dwell on it...... I am going through a drug therapy. So far so good, you know the nausea and the tiredness, good grief, I am so tired! I am trying to stay positive and helping me do this all started with Karen's Party of Where Women Create!!! Yeah, I was so inspired by the many talented and wonderful women out there..... such fabulous rooms. You really cannot stop spending hours gazing at the delightful and breathtaking rooms each and everyone has!!!!
Anyway, back to the positive thinking, I am refusing to let Lupus take control, so I am working hard to finish my swaps and my giveaways.
A while back, I did a swap with Susan from Mouse Droppings. She is the most incredible and talented artist! Not only does she sew, felt and paint, she does rug hooking and needle punch!!! OMG she does it all!!! You really need to see her sweet, darling critters!! I fell in love with her rabbits and mice the instant I saw them!!!

I just wanted to share with you the gifts I received from Susan, beautiful!!!!!!!!
Love the rabbit, and the little booklet and the packaging!!! The lovely candle and the soap!!
I love sheep! This was a wonderful swap,  it has made me work even harder to finish my gifts that I am behind on........ yeah, I feel energized!
Thank you Susan, love my sweet bunny!!!!!!

Hi Margaret~
Lupus is such a mean Mother suffered from it most of her life. I feel for you and you are in my prayers.
Glad to hear you are so energized! Would we call that little bunny the real "Energizer Bunny" ;) He's precious!
I totally agree with you about Karen's was a blast and so awe inspiring to see all of these beautiful places!
Have a wonderful weekend friend and stay positive~
everything vintage

This is so sweet!

Don't let Lupus get the better of you.
I don't do that either.

Wow, lucky you Margaret, and I know your swap partner will love what you create for her too, because I have done a swap with you :) In fact , that was the last one I did LOL, but I love to see what others swap and I love the bunny. I am going over to visit her blog now :)

Margaret, I don't know how I missed all the cute little rabbits and bears in these posts. They're just darling. Sorry I didn't comment earlier.

I'd like to talk to you about your lupus if you feel like it. My husband has systemic lupus and has had it for 10 years. God bless you so much.
