~ Creative Wonder ~

" Bountiful by Felicia "

" Cottage Panache by Maureen "

I have always been fascinated by people's varying creative genius. I sometimes feel I have those moments, but I do so enjoy observing the lovely ideas that surround us each day. We just have to take the time to enjoy them every so often.....

" After "
