So I fotgot to tell you, that Maddy and I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday, and I just had to buy Apprentice before it was gone...and we were looking through it together, and I was like, Maddy, this is my friend's piece! Then she got really excited! :D

...and last night, I started looking back through your blog. You are amazing! I have read and seen many of the same books/groups, but I have not done them. I think I may. What a good way to get some practice, and the prompts are nice. You have made sooo much! I am jealous!

and wouldn't it be so fun, so go to a workshop together one time!!!
