  15. You inspire me to move past my comfort zone and try new things with items I already have! You love color and so do I! Also, I love your down to earth take on things. You are very REAL and that is the best compliment I have ever received. I would love a chance to win product that I can add to create good things and give to people I love, care about or gift to local non profits. I went searching for the water colors at OSJL but they only had tubes or color and that scars me…. I’m better with trays.. moving past Crayola is a big step ROFL!!!!

  49. as hard as I try, my cards don’t come out anywhere near what yours look like. I know “practice makes perfect”. Now, that’s not to say that my come out badly. That’s why I watch and re-watch a lot of your videos…hoping for inspiration. I mentioned to my sister, they are “flat”… I need more dimension. I think this video will lead me in the right direction to achieve that. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and ideas.
