    • Hi Ellen!
      Thanks SO MUCH for writing in, it means so much to me to “see” you here 🙂 I think of you so often when we do projects, especially watercolors. Perhaps you’ll give us a lesson sometime that I could share here on kartwheels! Miss and love you and hope you are having a great time with Judi! xoxox

  16. Hi Karen. There’s some lovely artwork on here. Many thanks for following. 🙂

  17. Thanks for following my blog…. There’s nothing like art by kids…. I know I’ll be inspired every time I look at YOURS! Following now!

  18. What an awesome blog! I love love love children’s art. It looks like you and I are similar where we blog a potpourri of things. Isn’t life full of such wonderful things! Thanks for peeking at my blogpost on wishing on stars, and I look forward to peeking in at yours.

    • Thank you Jennifer! I love children’s art as well and agree wholeheartedly that life is full of wonderful things 🙂 Will be keeping an eye out for more of your stars…

  19. Great to see more art up in the gallery! I love the picture for the aunties. Did Captain go to the wedding?

    • Hi Judy! No, Captain didn’t go to the wedding because the aunties themselves didn’t know they were finally going to get married until the morning it happened and we are far away. They tried 3 different times to get married and then were disappointed by the legal business… When they got the shot, they went for it and we are all thrilled! Thanks so much for asking and I hope all is well with you and all the family! 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
