Michelle I love it!! No advice except I think you should sell it to me. I still have carrot top but I need to add to my retirement account. See you when you get back.


michelle, i love that you shared the step by step by step of this project.

isn't it amazing when you finally know a piece is finished?

i have never been drawn to Asian-inspired art. i think you have such a gentle way of incorporating it in your work. i never would have guessed Asian, but, there it is!
