Thank you Lynda!

I love that you posted that article about my poet cowboy!

Thank you for creating Kavamilina…. thank you for advertising me in an affordable way…. the workshops are going well, story some paintings are selling and we both have a couple commissions. So we are doing well right now. Hope to squirrel away some for the long winter months. But I believe that this is just the beginning of real success!

I believe with all my heart that we are beginning to see the results of the advertising that you are doing!

IT IS WORKING!

Thank you, more about hugs hugs
