AH! I am all of the sudden nervous! After all your hard work is done, you must be thrilled Diana! Great Job and congratulations on it's completion - I am so looking forward to seeing all the luscious pages.
AND thank you for your kind comment about the Summer of Color -I know I've told you before, but you are such an inspiration to me - and it means a lot to have your support. Do you know that you were my very first (non family member) follower almost two years ago? Yep you were. And I will never forget that ;)
No, I have not considered your suggestion of publishing a book, but I do hope for some special things to come from the project . . . Love to you and Cole too, xoxoxo
