  11. I read your post on Linda’s blog that you were soaking cardboard so I rushed over to see what you wee up to! haha

    Very pretty piece. And I WOULD believe that a young child could have said that back in the day– pre video games when books or playing outside were the only entertainments AND a 3rd grade education was equivilant to today’s junior year of high school.

    Where do you find time to make so much art ?(I envy you!)
