    2. Wow! Just stunning.
      Love the bunny post card - so sweet.

    3. I love the photo, and I always enjoy seeing your creations. I do believe I need to set up some sort of 15 minute challenge for myself! so much *can* be accomplished in just a little bit of time if we just do it :) Thanks for sharing the beauty, as always! -Tammy

      The photo is amazing too, how did you do that?

    5. Thanks for sharing your talents with us! On my morning walks I've been trying to listen more to the birdsong than to the silly things I tend to think about. It's so uplifting!
