I'd like to thank first of all my dear husband who regrets that he encouraged my blog obsession by helping me create this! Now I'm addicted. I'd like to thank all of you who visit me regularly... some of you have been with me for over a year and others are new friends! I'm not sure exactly why you keep coming back but I love you all and this blog wouldn't be anything without you! And I'd like to thank the little people (Caroline and Nathaniel) who inspire me daily (to hide out and read other's blogs so I don't feel like I'm doing this whole stay-at-home mom/artist thing by myself!!!). Truly this blog has kept me accountable for pursuing new creative activities and blessed me with friends all over the world who are all wonderful people!! Thannnnk Yoouuuu!!!!!!!!!!!
