With time to spare . . .

I feel like I've been working on this project for weeks. Months even. But really, it's only been a little more than one week. Most of that week though.Almost 5 inches thick, my mom's book is ready to go!

If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from Judy Wilkenfeld, you should bend time and space to get there. You will not regret it!

I'm flying to California in August to take another 2-day workshop with Ms. Judy. Why don't you join us!
