    Debbie…with your talent, I do hope you have “books” in mind…..recipes, traditional Japanese symbolism, bible verses, the cleverness your mind creates!!!!!

  • Sally, I actually used the coupon offered by Blurb via RB to make a little “portfolio” book showing samples of my work. But I didn’t think it was ready to make public. Maybe one of these days…

    I think you are so ready for prime time! I hope you do publish and I will purchase!
    I have had both above, and peace is definitely better. ")

  • I’m not even sure what prime time means in this case, but your compliment gave me goosebumps. :)
