I purchased this wall hanging from you years ago at a sidewalk art show.
When my husband and I moved to a small condo earlier this year, we had to find it a new home. A sister-in-law, who had always wanted it, gave it a new home. She’s an artist, too.
I thought you might enjoy seeing it again. It looks great in her home.
Ciao, Shannon" "Dear Shannon -
What a happy email to receive and read today! Thank you for adding such light to my day.
I love knowing that that art piece has been happily enjoyed for all these years and has found a new home with your sister-in-law. Very cool. Seeing the image triggered all the emotions and things going on in my life at the time that I designed and created that particular art quilt and the gorgeous places in nature that inspired it. You are so thoughtful. What a connection - what a gift.

I'll definitely encourage all the ladies out there to buy beauty products from @3ina . They provide you with wide range of cosmetics from the very basic primer to oh-so-pretty colourful mascaras. I loved the moisturizing eye mask with gold and rose extract mask. It's very gentle and perfect for sensitive skin like mine which tends to break out if experimented with different brand products. This is a Europe based brand and most importantly it #CrueltyFree#veganmakeup .So let's join the movement and make world a better place.
