  50. Signed up for your newsletter and posted on Facebook. I’m not on Instagram. Hope that is sufficient. Thanks for an opportunity to win your Fall Giveaway. I’m 64 and was administrator of a hospice program for 28 years until I quit my job to care for my mother. I long to do art but don’t know where to start. This would be so lovely.

  51. Hello sorry I didn’t understand the directions completely. I love your work it’s both spiritually and for me mentally healing. In a image transfer artist I take memories, pictures, draeings, signatures and hand make them into transfers then I apply them to anticipate surface. I feel adding another element to my designs like what you do would inspire me to create even more from my soul. I would be so grateful to win your tutorials as I am a high fan. Thank you for creating such healing work
