Gift yourself (or someone else)
Hello everyone. As some of you know, I’ve started doing some collage…stuff? (Note from my wife “They are really beautiful. Like, really really beautiful.) I don’t know what to call it, but it is very therapeutic for me. I’ve been asked by several people when I’m going to sell some of the wo...
