  1. I get educated by writing it, to be honest each day I am still in shock that people actually want to read them!

  2. It is amazing how you can do this and not use a lot of tools and materials to make them look different. I thought the Nautilus was gorgeous, plus I too like the turkeys. I am constantly amazed at what people creative and really appreciate you for sharing on your blog. What an education I have received from you blog.

  5. Love the penguin idea especially when winter is approaching. So cute!
