Your cover is lovely, Linda. I hope you will show us the pages when it is complete.

Linda, this is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I'm curious as to the theme of this book. Share all! The jewel is great, wish I had one to wear! The hinges make it, and I love your clever little house. Too bad I'm stuck at work - now I want to go home and play!
