Can you put up with more?

I hope you are not getting fed up with me showing you all the wonderful gifts which have arrived on my doorstep lately. They are all so different and all so fabulous in their own way, I have to show you all of them.

During the OWOH event I came across a blog called Top Floor Treasures, and I was really fascinated by it. Zoe was offering a zendoodled initial in her giveaway, and I was so intrigued by her work. I entered the giveaway and I won it!!! I chose our family initial, W, and it arrived yesterday. What an amazing letter it turned out to be. Now, when I was in my teens, I doodled a lot, errm, during lessons, lol, at home, on the bus, but boy oh boy, my doodles were like chicken scratchings compared to Zoe's zendoodles. They are incredibly detailed and I love my W so much.

Here it is in all its zendoodled glory -

Pretty amazing, isn't it? Now I am trying to decide what sort of frame to put it in. Any suggestions will be gratefully received, of course.

One of my winners was Sam from Cornish Contemporarys. This lovely girl made me a gorgeous tag as a thank you, using some of the bits from the embellishment pack she had won. How sweet was that? And the tag really is fab, and has already joined my collection of Blogger friends' tags -

Oh black for sure. How wonderful yet again to unwrap such a beautiful present. Are there any more? Yes we are getting rather envious actually! Night night!

Hi Liz, thank you so much for your kind words (here and in your email) about my zendoodle. I'm so happy that you're so happy with it! :)
I would recommend a plain black 'Nyttja' frame from Ikea if you can find one the right size - they look great in those ;)

The doodled "W" is awesome, Liz! My hand is twitching and wants to start doodeling right away. My doodles would be far from pretty though, so I don't give in, LOL.
I would also go for a black frame. Maybe you'll find one at the next booth fair.
Have a great weekend :-)!
