I never thought I would make such wonderful friends through my blog. Laura is always so sweet to follow and comment. She even ordered a plate for Mrs. L for teacher appreciation. Thanks to Laura's sweet gift, MY PARENTS:) and I have gotten to meet Mrs. L. She ordered two rope pails filled for birthday gifts. Before receiving her first order, she placed a second order. I want this post to be a THANK YOU to Laura and Mrs. L. I really appreciate your business and love painting for your friends and family. The pics below are a couple of the buckets. The mermaid bucket is the finished product, and the baseball bucket is before wrapping.
