  1. Thank you so much, April! I’m honored and blessed to have so much support from the creative community. (PS….Big Joe is a bit partial…don’t pay attention to him! hehe)

  2. Donna is a wonderful artist. We met through a mutual friend and the rest is History. She is actually the one, although we live many miles apart, to want to paper craft after looking at her marvelous cards.

  3. You could definitely see your expertise in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
