Love what makes YOU - YOU - friend!! Keep it up!

Oh my goodness! He is so cute! (say this with lots of enthusiasm, and like a teenager) I think he
needs to be one of your new giclees. They are wonderful. Congratulations!

Love your doodle, adorable bear! :]
So glad... I dropped by for a visit, lovely site indeed.


Well, isnĀ“t that the cutest bear ever?!! I agree with Ashley, I love whatever it is that makes you you :-D


Catching up on your blog after some time away. I just love this bear, the look on his face, so sweet. And I love your journal pages too, such an out of the ordinary "technique", so YOU! AND I'd love to have one of your canvasses in my home. Do they ship to France now?

So cute!!!

I love everything u do. Kiss :)


Thanks Michelle! I love all of your work and the glimpses into your whole creative life. I appreciate you posting these thoughts. Sometimes I wonder if it is only me who has to resist comparisons and try to let come what comes, and to just be ME. It is somehow comforting to see that you share these feelings, even after all of your success and amazingness.
