The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

Oh my! A magical box of Creager Happiness!

Hello Everyone! My goodness I'm so excited I just have to share!
I am sure you are all familiar with the Creagers yes? :) Well, a few weeks ago they had a blog giveaway. A name would be drawn from their followers list and the prize would be random goodies laying around the studio. A prize for enjoying and visiting such an inspiring, most entertaining blog? Huh!

I hoped and prayed I'd win but never for a second did I envision that it could actually happen. Well, while I was away a name was drawn and there sitting in my inbox when I returned home was an email letting me know it was me!! :O I still cannot believe it, Happy belated birthday to me! I rarely win anything let alone something like this!

It's here! It's here! I came home the other day to a glorious box of Magical Creager happiness sitting outside my door!

What makes this all even more unbelievable is the size and contents of the goodie box. Oh-my-GAWD! Would you look at what they did?! It's filled to the brim with stuff! Random goodies including these awesome skeleton finger molds (they made me do a double take hee hee) and flashy fibers to play with!

Their DVDS?! :O Holy **!!

A Creager collectors piece?! I'm not ready to open it quite yet - it'll need to go in a protected cabinet but here's a quick peek at the wonderful elf inside.

And, as if the above wasnt more than plenty.... there's still more!

Jewelry! Sculpted hands! Props! and The coolest hand armatures I've ever seen! All incredible.

A poster, cards, dvd including photos of their amazing, inspiring work and a wonderful little handwritten note. Can you see the print of Richards train drawing below? I can't get over the details. I took separate photos of it but it comes up sideways on blogger. Jodi's photo's of it are so much better than mine anyway so here's the link to it in their etsy shop. I cannot wait to have these framed.

I'm seriously still in a bit of shock. Not just at the combined talent of these two artists but also their kindness and generosity. This box left me temporarily speechless and each time I go through its contents, it happens again.

Jodi, Richard, you're amazing. These gifts made my heart all warm and fuzzy. I will enjoy them for years to come. No doubt they will keep me company and help during my recovery over the next few months. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I truly hope everyone is having a super week and that something magical happens to enhance it. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing my excitement with me. It means a lot. I certainly feel like one lucky lil girl. :)

Life's good...

Dear heart, I cannot imagine anyone more deserving of all these wonderful things than you. I share your enthusiasm for "all things Creagar" and I'm sure you'll do wonderful things with everything they sent. I can't wait til you open that elf! Please post a photo of that when you do!

Jennifer you are in for such a treat! I remember when I first saw their work on ebay and bout fell out of my chair at how realistic and detailed their ogre was.

I am still in a bit of a state of shock, let me tell you! Pattee omg I would imagine that would be AMAZING! Id love to hear about it sometime. I think I'd be so nervous and intimidated I'd either wish I was invisible or be hiding under the table hoping no one notices (yeah, again) ha ha!
