This year the European Street Team (which I am so proud to be a member of) on Etsy decided it would be a fun idea to make a 'Secret Easter Bunny' surprise (continuing on from last years very successful Secret Santa). ArtMind aka Mitsy is our wonderful team member who coordinated everything, sent out questionnaires and matched each of the particpants with another team member.
We have until 25th March 2009 to make our secret easter bunny surprises and I was terribly excited the other day when the postman delivered a very special package to me!! It came all the way from Italy ... can you guess yet?
I have to admit that i'm not the best at waiting until easter to open my surprise and as soon as I saw who it was from I just HAD to open it!
can you guess YET????
My secret easter bunny is none other than enchantedpond aka matchstickgirl aka the super lovely Frances.J.Melhop ... !!! I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet as I am totally in love with her work!!
She wrapped my surprise in the coolest bright orange paper and drew the cutest Easter Bunny on it .. clever girl eh what!
Mmmmmh, now what could be inside here????????
I am now the super proud owner of 'a real fairy' photo ... and I am just dying to get it framed so that I can hang it on my wall and gaze at it daily!! If I sound like i'm gushing over this, believe me I am ... I was literally bouncing off the walls when I realised who the Postman had brought me a package from ... my kids did look at me rather strangely :)
I was going to borrow my neighbour to take a photo of this most amazing 'a real fairy' photo but decided to try to do it myself :) Excuse the ever so slightly 'dorky' pose but I had to kind of crouch down to get myself and the fairy in the shot .... (hey, it's a large photo of the fairy and i'm standing on the bidet!!) ....
Frances, I cannot thank you enough for this incredible photo ... I adore fairies, I adore pink and most of all I adore your work ..
And thank you again Artmind for going to such a tremendous effort in making all of this happen!
