(And remember, if you don't want to miss future articles -- and give-aways -- there are now three ways to subscribe.)
Wonderful!!!! I loved them all...but my favourite was the one that showed the "mistakes"!ReplyDelete
Absolutely splendid! The combination of heart-to-heart quotes and the hand-drawn and -lettered pieces is exceptional! Makes me want to do something similar...perhaps during the dead of winter when I find one seeks inspiration more desperately than under the summer sun.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the quotes that make you tick!
I love these! The one that resonates with me the most is the quote by Rachel Carson. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thank you Hwee. Ms. Carson was a very special person. I, like so many others, first got to know her through Silent Spring. But it was her gentle strength and love for humanity (especially children) that really inspired me most.Delete
Really like your quotes. Will have to illustrate one day picasso`s about inspiration that likes to find you at work. Nice to follow you!ReplyDelete
