Some days I make myself smile :D

Some days you just want to play...
and those are the days that "fun pressies" come into their own.
You know the ones...we call them "stocking fillers" or
"saw this and thought of you" gifts.
Well last Christmas my youngest saw this and thought of me lol
It is a "paint your own" money box kit...
 It came with a selection of acrylic paints and a bit of a duff brush...
 but I have loads of brushes lol so not an issue.
The idea was to paint the witch character as depicted on the box as she is from a children's book...
but I haven't read it so I just painted her how I wanted :D
 No surprise she came out green lol...
 and her clothes purple and black...
and all witches need a touch of sparkle...
 so she is liberally coated in various shades of stickles :D
 She makes me smile :D

Left of Center Creative challenge this week is "Stars", but I think she is LOC enough to get away with just the one :D
Enjoy XXX

  5. I'm sure the grin on her face--which you have painted to stunning life--was what made your youngest think of you when he saw her. She's definitely planning something. I mean, that grin says it all. :-D

  6. Awe, that was so sweet of your little one to get you a witch to paint. You did a tremendous job on painting this craft. She is quite bewitching covered in various Stickles!
