Both of you have done a beautiful job, the features, colors everything.

I also wanted to thank you for visiting Emily and leaving her a sweet little comment on her butterfly reminder. That was so nice of you. I'm real close to being done with the baby board book project from Week 7. I'm crossing my fingers for next week.

LOVE them!!! Especially the eye close up and that hair - addicting isn't it?! And Jacob! Wow . . .
Looking forward to working on my board book today. . . The necklaces are from Inkessentials (spelling?) both the glass and the cheap metal frames. There are different sizes, but these are 1.5 x 1.5. I then added the hanging earring (punched a hole in the bottom and strung with wire) and the crystals around the sides with E600. I know, I am thinking holidays too, xoxo

Hi! Thinking about you and hoping you are all well, xo

Wow! Talent runs in the family!! I'm so darn impressed with the both of you!! I think about you now and then, hope all is well.

As far as getting the courage to pull over and park illegally to take photos...i've been a huge chicken in the past too many times and missed out on some incredible photos that still haunt me, so now I try to just go for it!! And my son wasn't in the car, or it wouldn't have happened! : )

I've thought of you often. I hope that Jacob is doing well. He is in our prayers. I also wanted to let you know that Monday morning my Week 7 project of The Artistic Mother Art Group will post.

ok, I am so excited that we are doing the same healing project! Here is my lady. I didn't journal on the outside yet, and honestly, i don't think I'm going to. I am still working on the board book journal, but I put the beginnings of it on blog too. Here are the links to them to see if you want. i love yours!
