Make Kindness Contageous ☼

 We are well into the new year and already fighting Mother Nature, huh?
Believe it or not the off shooting tails of the East Coast Blizzard are felt here.
Boy did we have a storm last night and coooooold... even down here in Florida.

My Title this time depicts my 2016 Resolution.
"Make Kindness Contagious". I think it's a good one -
can help everyone anywhere.

I'm back (better: still on) to my little art work 'hobby' -
creating plain greeting cards with what ever jumps into my head or what I'm watching, collecting ideas during daily life. I'm using acryl paint, silicone, lots of glitter and glue, 24K leaf gold, genuine Swarovski crystal-
'diamonds', flowers, my hands and fantasy.
Every single one is totally ONE of a kind.
A unique greeting or gift for anyone.
Yup, I have them up for sale on Etsy:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/EuropeanGoodies  <-- LOOK?

Here is a 3-fold card that I haven't put up for sale yet... I like it and can't produce the same again.
I will however sell it. ($10.00 = shipping $2.25)
A loving couple, maybe for a Valentine's gift?
It's painted on burlap and has a 'feel' to it - 3D-like.

I create many different styles like those:



Some painted on burlap, some are on paper. All motives are elevated, have texture and this 3D effect.
Check them out.. for a birthday surprise or for your Valentine ♥ ♥

And now, don't forget to hug your kids tonight!!

Yours always
Johanna

A very Happy New Year to All

And again I've neglected my blog.
I better make no resolutions - maybe I'm then able to keep up with my writing.
Resolutions are there to be neglected, right? ... Yeah, bad girl, that's me.

What's new?
My nephew and his Canadian wife whose wedding I attended in 2014 have been busy.
Little Nora was born in November 2015.
Congrats, congrats. Great accomplishment.

Otherwise pretty well same old, same old.

I am still pursuing to sell my house.
Yes, I had an open house, many people came, unanimous response:
Unique, unique, unique and soooo beautiful.
People, and/or prospective buyers must see the inside.
It has curb appeal, but the inside is insane.
Well, so much for that.

My Christmas HouseNow, on Christmas Eve I received a 'nice' little Christmas gift.
A huge truck backed into my driveway and hit my brick-built mailbox into ruins and pieces.
Lovely mess and 'Happy Holidays'. Grrrr....
I didn't even notice but my wonderful neighbor saw it, jumped into his car and followed the truck.
The driver didn't notice either.
Thanks to neighbor Dan, this will not be on my wallet.
It just looks a little earth quake-like now.
The first thing friends from Germany asked me was whether the car survived.
I laughed so hard... well, the truck had some damage but wasn't DOA.





 As for my little business: 'Selling my collected Life' - it's going slow but it's going.
And I have madly reduced prices now.
For those unusual gifts that you are looking for (or something for YOURSELF finally). 


My prices have fallen like my brick mail box. EuropeanGoodies <-- Check it out? Please?

Now, don't forget to hug your kids and let them know they are doing great.


Yours always,
Johanna
