Special Thanks

Thank you so much to blog reader Donna who said, in response to my crochet book project update.

“You’ve been an inspiration to me personally, even tho I’ve quietly read your blog and posts daily, looking forward to what you have to share with each new discovery. You touch more lives than you realize with your writing, art, and willingness to be vulnerable. Your ‘funders’ are your supporters and they believe in you. Keep going – the answer is in the question.”

This touched my heart, inspired me and helps me to keep going in my own creative journey. Thank you. And thanks to everyone else who has given me understanding and support in my unfolding path.
