          Thank you, thank you, Brenda…I needed to hear about your dream-killing step-mom, what a druella (1001 Dalmatians), or cruella!!! I’m sorry it took so long for you to trust yourself! I was adopted so I got real familiar with rejection! My mom was schizophrenic, and a lot of people were scared of me like I had a ghost. In my pocket! I am learning it’s OK not to make money. It’s OK to. Study. You take care Brenda, I can really identify with your stuggles.. im like ready to write to Dr fauci and say " when is our next pandemic ? That was soooo fun, staying home & studying"?!?
          You r right about coveting supplies! I do house Portraits and calligraphy. God bless: & I like your numbering sketchbooks.
