I love love love to go blog visiting. I seriously have to limit my time for soaking in all of the talent, spontaneity, color, wizardry and creativity presented by these fabulous blog genies.
Somedays I treat myself to "art" blogs
Other times to "photography" or "mixed media"

Thank you Kim Klassen for your textures and tutorials.
Thank you Susan Tuttle for your inspirational work.
