A few weeks before Christmas is the perfect time to gather with friends at a dear friend’s home, grab a glass of wine, a nibble or two and … wander around and shop for gifts … What? All under one roof? Yes, it really happened and it was beautiful!
Vicki is a talented artist and it is always spectacular when she gathers many of her pieces together for a sale. It is almost too much to take in at once! Multi media cacti, flowers, forests, happy dancing boots and flying hearts pour out endearing messages to create a collage of emotions.
Along with the many original works of art that range in all sizes, there were teeny, tiny round rocks that have been painted with love and adorable tree ornaments (or bottle ornaments – great hostess gift!) that are miniature paintings adorned with a little bell or metal heart. Vicki also shares her images on phone cases, tote bags and lovely greeting cards.
Joining us was Charis Lyons, from Blue Shark Diva Designs, a jewelry artist with a depth to her talent as well. An array of beautiful hand-wrought metal bracelets and earrings, touched with crystals, pearls, semi-precious stones and lotus seeds were a fantastic addition to the gifts that were on display.
I was so fortunate to be asked to sell my books there. It was a successful night for me in sales, but what excited me the most was that my friends were going to read my book. It’s hard to promote to your friends and I was overwhelmed at their enthusiasm.
Thank you, Vicki, for inviting me and many thanks to my friends who supported me.

Cheers to all. xoxoxo
