Blog candy winners!

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well so far :) Last week was my first company spotlight and I am so thankful to the Paper Crafter´s Library for featuring Designs by Ryn. I was admittedly a little shy at first to publish my story so openly but am very happy that I did! Your comments both on the Paper Crafter's Library and my blog touched me deeply. Thank you for taking the time to send such encouraging wishes my way. I was speechless!

Today I would like to announce the winners of last week's blog candy. On the Paper Crafter's Library the winner of Water Droplets, Circle Cluster Set and Celtic Star 2 is Pat Taylor! From my blog post I would like to congratulate Lucy on winning Ornament Faerie, Celtic Dove Set and Heart of Light! I hope you both enjoy creating with these stamps :)

Today I am headed to São Paulo by bus. 16 hours of travel time but that feels like nothing after the 72 hour bus trip that I took across Canada last month before leaving to Brazil. Last weekend I met some wonderful distant relatives from Brasilia and went to the family country house. It was like a jungle of tropical plants! I went walking through the garden with one of my family members and we both picked a plant to paint. I was fascinated by a leaf of bright greens and pinks. I'm not sure of the name... I'm very inspired by all the different leaves here. Thinking maybe new stamp designs? We'll have to see ;) For now, I have a watercolour painting to share with you. It was a first attempt as I haven't painted from life in years! Hope you enjoy it.
