l is for lucky pony portrait partner - NEW

some how just my luck, my lucky pony portrait partner Lenta withdrew from the project, so i was stuck without a partner :(
i was super sad, and very upset that i couldn't take part.
i tweeted and moaned and much to my luck, Lynne from Hello Again
responded and said, she would be my partner, Angie agreed, and a new partnership was born.

Lynne has this a-freaking-mazing store on Long Street in Cape Town, do yourself a favour and go check it out, but if you can't then here is the blog:

yay for me!
new partner, Lynne sent me three photos to choose from, her and her new addition to the family, what a cutie!

i've started working and i'll post up the progress shots and the final one, when i'm done and Lynne has it.
lucky for me Lynne is near me so I don't have to mail it, but i can hand deliver mine.
hold thumbs that it turns out awesome!

last week i told you guys about the santa shoe box project.
i begged and pleaded that if you could please do take part.
i took part, along with my boyfriend, his parents, my mom and one of my mom's friends.
so we managed to donate 6 gifts to less fortunate children.
and it was so amazing and rewarding!
the target was for 70233 and it was met!
which is amazing thank you to each and everyone who took part.

tania one of my loyal customers also sponsored two boxes for 2 little girls and sent in her photo.
thank you so much tania!
you are too sweet and you have a heart of gold!

next year i want to donate to a lot more charities.
that is one of my missions for next year.
so if you know of a worthy cause, please do tell!
