I received from Susanab yesterday and I love it!

Here's the whole package together:


She combined two of my themes (Halloween and Pokemon) for the paintbrush. The brush is actually a Pokemon Racer Speed Broom, and a Halloween witch to ride it!


She's wearing a bat dress, which is awesome because I love bats Cheesy


Here's some detail of the brush:


She also included a travel sewing kit that looks like a suitcase:



And lastly, she also sent this little unicorn puzzle eraser. It comes all apart. It's super neat and very cute!


Thank you so much Susan!

Great start to the gallery!  Two different interpretations of paintbrush art!

What a cute idea to use the paintbrush as a broom!

The paintbrush plaque is lovely and inspiring!  I love the cracked paintbrushes...
