OK....if you haven't heard of the FABULOUS artist Chandra Michaels, the creative force behind Sugarluxe - America's Sweet Art, you most definitely need to pay attention! I fell in love with Chandra's art the minute I found her blog. She has to be one of the best art divas and her style is amazing. Make sure to click on her name above and you can read her most impressive bio. In less than three years, the portfolio of Sugarluxe artwork has been adapted and distributed across the globe. Z Gallerie Stores, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Helio, MTV, Miley Cyrus, T-Mobile, CMT, Playboy, BRIDES Magazine, Bong Spirit Vodka, START Mobile, VH1, Virgin and more, have selected the work of Sugarluxe. She says, "Never a conformist, I'm fiercely independent and determined to succeed despite the odds. I work excessively long hours and have sacrificed EVERYTHING in hopes of achieving my dream. I love Las Vegas, I can’t go for one day without dill pickles and I don’t like mean people."

First off, she is having an amazing weekly give-away this month on her blog in honor of February 14th marking Sugarluxe's 4th anniversary. I was so excited about this and entered the 1st weeks give-away for this Art & Soul Tattoo Heart Dual Mirror Compact. This design was originally created for an Art & Soul Showcase to benefit the Austin Children’s Shelter, and she had never offered this design on any of her Sugarluxe Compacts before. She had made only 3 of these compacts for 3 lucky winners. And can you guess who one of the winners was???? .............ME!!!!!!!!!!!

In her shop, she offers her wonderful artwork on modern fashion accessories and gifts, along with canvas artwork prints. Here are just a few of my favorites:

And what better way to end this post than my famous departing words: "CHEERS!"

You ladies really rock my whole world! Thank you for everything you both do to make me feel so wonderful.

I should have gotten over here a lot sooner to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY...I hope it was a fabulous celebration.

And - I must add that I'm absolutely thrilled that you love the compact. There is nothing that means more to me than to have someone love something I've made for them.

I bet you know exactly what I mean.

All my love - Chandra
