I do admire an artist who follows thru!! LOL I never got a single one made - good intentions......
These are gorgeous- they should be on public display somewhere!

Bea said...

These are amazing. You have inspired ME to finish what I started. I do hope you get to display these in public for people to see. They are wonderful. :)Bea
