Generous gifts for Operation Thrive

My ‘fairy godmother’, a Twitter friend, sent me this wonderful journal to help to keep me on track after I wrote this post about my big plan which I named Operation ThriveI was thrilled and very touched. It will be put to good use!

A dear friend and her husband, who I wrote about here, sent me a bumper bundle of art supplies, including a much longed for easel and board, a large sketch pad, a book on figure sketching, art magazines, pencils, paints and a mini wobbly bloke – that’s what I call mine! I have a larger one but this mini chap is great because he’s so portable and fits into my art bag. I could barely contain my glee and my gratitude. Art is an important part of Operation Thrive. At some point I will get around to sharing some art work.
