So remember this post??? Well... the goodies came in the mail and I have to tell you - the pictures don't do them justice at all. And yet I still post a pic because how can I resist???? Look - Liv is holding the real Mittens and the artistic interpretation of Mittens. Marisa, you've captured Mittens little spirit so perfectly!!
The colors are so vivid and the shading so perfect. She's captured all the little details, from the butterfly on the face to the little heart tattoo between the eyes. The background of the field of flowers is exactly where I imagine Mittens would live. It's absolutely perfect!!!
Along with the original artwork, Marisa (Elegant Bloggery) sent us two full-size prints, 1 scrapbooking tag, 1 notecard, and 8 gift tags. It is truly an embarassment of riches! I find myself opening the envelope over and over just to look at all the goodies and hold them all in my hands. This is truly a treasure!
We went to Hobby Lobby last night to try to find a frame for the original to hang in Liv's room, but none of the frames there seemed to do it justice. I think now the plan is to check out an estate sale later this week to try and find a large ornate frame that I can spraypaint hot pink.
