How great! You should be featured a lot in a lot of magazines, Michelle. Your art makes people smile and feel better about life in general. Every day, when I look at your clock, or on the magnets on the fridge, I feel a little happiness, simply by looking at something beautiful, colorful and fun.
Looking forward to blog-hoping to your links later today.


Was so excited to see your goodies in a store in the Couve yesterday! The soap spotters are adorable. Cute magazine too
