"The Big Sale..."

...at Bath & Body Works...
50-75% off my favorites due to new designs in packaging!
What a deal!
I purchased my goodies the day I fell and am just now
unpacking them today...one week later.
FYI...
This sketch was drawn lead free...on the shopping bag from the store,
and from start to finish...ink to scanner...
it took me just over 45 minutes
to complete. :)
Also...
As an aside to this post...I want to send
my deepest and sincerest thanks out to each and every one...
...for your cheerful and concerned get well comments

My hand is feeling so much better...especially with the new splint.
What a wonderful, supportive on line community we have.
You all continue to rock my world each day!

Wonderful scene of you opening packaging with little pinky in the air. Sketching on the wrapping gave another dimension to your illustrations .... and 'thanks' for your 'thanks'!! So pleased you are recovering enough to pamper yourself.

Working around horses I always hum a tune to let them know where I am at all times. The tune will sometimes be stuck with me for the whole day. Guess what tune is with me for the day!!!
EveryTHING matters.... you rock!
