Kinda... Well actually not really at all...

But this is still really cool!

So as most people reading this know I work at a paint-your-own-pottery shop! Its really fun and sometimes during slow day I get to paint samples....

Well one day back in October when we were supposed to have that hurricane it was super slow. So I painted a sample of one of these ghost house cookie/candy jars. It took me a really long time to paint because I was super detailed and painted in shading and all that. It turned out really good! I actually loved it and Im not even really a halloween person!

Andyways the exciting/famous part is that Nicholas Sparks' wife bought the piece I painted!!!! So my artwork is now in the Sparks home!! How cool is that!

If you dont know who Nicholas Sparks is he is the author of many books based in North Carolina. He lives in the same city I work in. Three of his books have been turned into movies: A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, and Nights in Rodanthe

Pretty cool, huh?

that's awesome! i just read an article in runner's world about him - i guess he's way into running and helps coach some high school team or something.

Yeah Im pretty sure he actually started the school because he wasn't happy with the schools around here that his kids could go to.
