I am aware that there are even more people then that who follow me with other readers and such, but it's nice to see so many of you coming here with every new post. I absolutely LOVE to share my creations, and I hope it shows how much I love to create with every photo and post I put on here. I have grown so much in the last several years with my creating, and even when I've learned everything I think I can, I am proven wrong and being pushed opens up another great expanse of learning for me. Thank you for being here with me on my journey.



Today, as I mentioned, I want to share a special post. If you click this video and watch, you will see these two beautiful and fabulous ladies mention this project below. How cool is that!!
