    I am always inspired by how sure you are in your SELF. You know? How comfortable in your own skin.

  10. Dee says:

    Congratulations to Kim for winning the cards…this art piece reminds me of my younger years playing paper doll by the hour…choosing what each would wear and dreaming of places they could go that I never would be able to go to. Through them my life was a fantasy.

    oh how i made a mess of my comment…which should have been ABOVE, but was deleted on accident, not because it wasn’t shouting praises to you dearest dear dear “deer”…..

    how your magical houses that rest on plots of flora
    your colorful possibilites fit for a queen…
    seem to weave their way into my heart.
    each time to put pen to paper,
    you strike a cord within me my dear!

    i am slipping into those crimson boots to dance a jig of gratitude for your BIG BIG heart and your beautiful affirmations that you share with the world.

    blessed are we.

    hand over heart,
    as always
