At the CQI Retreat this year, we had a "chinese auction". It was a new experience for me and the competition was friendly but fierce - lol! Several of us had our eye on this Santa that Leslie had made. Debbie Q had it first, then someone took it from her. When my turn came I knew if I chose it, I would get to keep it since the third spot it lands sticks. So, choose it I did! Leslie took it back because she offered several finishing techniques and took it home to do. I chose to have it as a freestanding Christmas decoration. It has arrived back in the mail from Leslie - and I love it! So, I just had to share a picture and show it off!
