  71. Isn't life such a treat, when someone, on the far off otherside of the world, can create something which is truely beautiful and uplifting, and make a somewhat grumpy mummy remember that life is full of colour. And it, life, the 3 little munchkins and her sleep deprived self, are all pretty good too. Thanks for placing this loveliness before us. Cheerio - Katja

  85. OMG! Her drawings are so beautiful! I love the bright cheery colors....they just make me feel happy,which I could use right now after losing our beautiful home in another state & now we are in another state starting over. All of our walls are bare with absolutely nothing on them so I would love to win these so I can give the prints to my daughters to decorate their bare walls with.Our house is so dreary and doesn't make us feel happy...I would love walking into my girls' rooms and seeing these beautiful prints on their walls...I would just feel so happy.My girls have small rooms and don't have much so I would love for them to have this to decorate their room. I often feel like I am not doing what I would like b/c I don't surround myself with things that I love so I don't want my girls to ever feel like they are not living up to their potential....these prints are not just pictures...they are words of encouragement when I'm not in the room with my girls,they are the things that can change their attitude for the whole day just by looking at the cheery prints.They are more than just pen on paper or pastels and paints, they are things that feed our souls so please grace us with the opportunity to own these great drawings! :)
