    Oh how fun are your drawings on book pages…I want a whole book like that!

    And peeps in hot chocolate! Brilliant!

  5. Glorious ode to Spring! I never thought the pages of Alice could be more elevated, but you did it. That’s a whole lotta happy. Makes me feel like swinging on a sun ray too!

    If a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, I can’t imagine what two birds in your mug is worth. Priceless!
