Where Did the Posts Go?

Hello blogster friends. Well, after a week of MIA and involved in tons of creative work, I am back to try and catch up. But first, I want to thank Jan from Rose Haven for the new look of my blog, she so creatively designed for me during the Christmas season. Thank you so much Jan for the new look. Stop by Rose Haven and say hello to Jan and visit her blog and read about the events she has going on for Christmas. It will be a fun visit!

This Monday I marvel and would like to share the awards I received from Tatting Chic. She is so kind to pass on these 3 awards to me and I will add them to my award list. Thank you Tatt Chic for your kindness. Congrats to you for receiving them first, as you are so deserving. And I pass these on to all those today when you visit. Visit Tatt Chic and marvel at her wonderful posts and talented creations using her skills for the beautiful and gorgeous tatting pretties.



Next on my list for catching up is to share the gifts I received from a little chain letter swap I was in this past month.
From JuJuzBeads, I received a beautiful bead necklace with storage pouch. I love it. She is so talented. Thank you so much Judy. Stop by Judy's blog and visit her etsy shoppe to see her pretty creations.

Look at this darling card from Amisha from, gorgeous and fun. I love this and you can visit her too here.

Mary from Kentucky sent a precious fall tag and decorative clothes pins. I love these Mary. She is so talented and I will really enjoy these sweet creations. Mary did not send a blog site or name, so I can't send you there. But you may know her, and if so, please pass her blogsite name on to me. Thank you so much Mary!

The talented and amazing Bertie from Aunt May's Cottage sent me this gorgeous fabric pumpkin. Oh is it gorgeous. She designed this one with pinks and black with roses and sheet music fabric. It looks great in my art studio. Thank you so much Bertie. Take a moment to visit her too and marvel at her gorgeous pretties. You will enjoy your visit.

Laurie from Charming Designs sent this darling little fridge magnet of a snowman under glass. It is so cute and I enjoy it everyday that I open the fridge. Thank you so much Laurie. Visit Laurie and view her beautiful blog and see her creations here.

Last but not least, is a gorgeous card I received from Karen of A Scrapbook of Inspiration. She so creatively designed her dress form pretty into a card that says,"Embrace the magic around you." It is just beautiful and Karen is such a talent. A visit to her lovely blog will be a real treat and sure to inspire you as it does me. Thank you so much Karen. I look at this card everyday and it brings magic to my days.


It is back to my brushes and then off to visit blog friends. I have missed so many during this very busy time. So glad you could stop by. Here are just a few creations that were born in the studio last week and found homes for Christmas. Thank you so much and see you again soon.










Many more hand painted treasures are on the way to my etsy shoppe, stop by anytime to browse as you are always welcome HERE.
Blessings and blue skies be yours. Celestina Marie

Hi Friend,
Yes indeed, he got in an episode. I think it was the 12th. Anyway I taped it and there he was in the background full length in that brown outfit. lol We cracked up! I didn't even know where he was, at the time. I was talking to a crew member.
You are going to be a busy girl. I hope you enjoy your company and the holiday.
I would absolutely love for you to come and visit sometime.
Thanks for the compliment.
Hugs to you!
