  3. Congratulations, indeed, and thank you for granting me sunshine… today it is raining toads and newts, so sunshine is a needed commodity!

    behind the darksome storm clouds

    • Dear Carol,
      You are very welcome. Taking your time to do it is a good plan. I waited almost a month. If it hadn’t been the end of the year, I might have taken longer. Do what you feel comfortable doing. There is no obligation. Your blog has great information and a dab of humor, too. I wanted you to be recognized for your hard work.

      Celebrate you.

        • I love your secret! It’s beautiful and it does go along with your adding more sunshine. Linda Andersen and I both signed up for Susan Hill’s workshop. We want to do it together, so we’re hoping to get signed on for April. It’ll be fun. I’m looking forward to seeing your paintings and the others that will be featured at the Picture Book workshop.

          Celebrate you. No hurry in replying to my post.
