    I love hearing from you and love visiting you on your blog. You are so refreshing. I feel as though I am sitting right next to you with a cup of espresso {or tea} and talking to you in person. I'm glad to know you and empathize...we all go through "stuff" and for me, my blog is an escape too...but sometimes I even avoid it.

    Love those pastels! It's a medium I have not used too much but just love, love the look and feel of them!

    Ciao bella,
    Suzanne

    1. Hehe Suzanne, it would be better to go out to have a good espresso, as I do prefer American coffee and my 'espresso' tastes like that :)) But I'd LOOVE to have you play in my studio with me (while sipping tea!)! xo

  2. Lovely colors, Monica. I know you'll create some beauty to share with us!! Can't wait!!

    There is so much to smile about, I don't know where to start. How about with just what a beautiful morning it is...or that this digestive issue I have been having is almost gone...or that I love seeing my daughters so in love...see what I mean? I could go on and on!! :o)
    Hugs and love,
    Becky

  3. I can not think of anything more exciting that getting such a beautiful rainbow in the mail. Something like that makes you think of saying, "It's left-over night, fend for yourself, I going to lock myself up in my studio". Or maybe that's just me. LOL I have got to become your newest follower #881, and follow your artful journey, because I do not want to miss any of your lovely work. Besides that, how can this many followers be wrong? I has got to be an amazing site.
    Please accept my invitation to visit my blog and hopefully you will decide to follow me too. Connie :)
