Remember the coat I bought for $90 and then decided it wasn’t quite right for me? Well, I returned it, paid a visit to the Sally Ann (otherwise known as the Salvation Army thrift store), bought this coat for $5…
And then for good measure, I bought this funky wrap/shawl for $3…
BUT the best part of all? With a few extra dollars thrown in, I bought THIS PAINTING from blog friend and talented artist, Andrea Pratt from Colouring Outside the Lines.
I’m SO excited and I can’t wait to get my painting in the mail. Like I’ve said before, when I make money freelance writing (and it’s not usually very much), I try to re-invest the money in myself by buying something that will inspire me – a book, a cd, something like that. Well I wasn’t sure a faux fur coat would inspire my creativity, but I’m pretty sure this fun and colourful painting will.

One of the greatest things about blogging (a rather unexpected delight) has been the opportunity to meet artists, writers, and other creative people from all over the world. I love to be part of a creative community like this, and I hope the brilliance of all these shining stars rubs off on me.
