  2. Thank you so much for mentioning my website in your column! Love your site, especially the article about the recipe card tea towels (oh and this one of course!). In fact reading this has given me some great ideas as to what to do with some of the paintings I’ve created that I’ve ‘outgrown’! Thanks for your lovely work. I’ll definitely be back to read more and admire the beautiful images!

    • Thank you Cheryl for your comment. I was more than happy to mention your website. It is very important to always give a source for images and ideas so the reader can find the full article and of course give the author full credit. Thank you again for your comment and I wish you much success.

      Best regards,
