Carrie goes on painting trips and gets sponsors to help her out. They provide funds for her trip, and she gives them paintings of their choice. So...I gathered up my courage and approached her with an idea...if she was interested....I would create a book about her trip in exchange for a painting. I wasn't sure what her response would be, but what the heck...it was worth a try!
She agreed...I compiled a book about her latest trip using entries that she posted on her blog (you can view it by clicking here)...and, in return, I received this beautiful painting of one of my favourite beaches.

So...lesson for today...don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. You never know what treasures you'll end up with.
