I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Good things...


... come in small packages.  At least I hope you'll think so.
  
There's a little hanging that I'm rather fond of over at Artistic Outpost today.  If you have time to pop over and check it out, that would be lovely.

And I'll keep this sneak peek short and sweet too... have a great week!

It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.

Fabulous little board, great colours and images together. The little flowers at the bottom really set it off.

I'm excited already, going over to check, I had to see this before I went to waterfit, thanks for sharing...

Krisha said...

Went and checked out you "little" piece of art, this is a great little piece of art. Sometimes those background textures won't cooperate the way you vision them, then turnout even better in the end!
