thank you for presenting such opportunity each and every month... i found that when i was able to participate i pushed myself further each time... it was necessary to raise my personal bar because you get such incredible submissions... they are all quite stunning... thank you for mentioning some of my work - especially the calder - i am indebted because i know that without the push, those pieces would not have been 'born'... here is to another year of inspiration!

Thanks for the review! I love participating in these challenges - I second what Mary said...without the push, I might not have been able to create some of my pieces! Looking forward to another fun year of inspiration!
