Bella! That is so adorable! I love it. You are so incredibly talented! Thank you for your very sweet comment on my blog about the Christmas tatting exchange with my friend from Denmark! What fun. Bella, who says you have to tat to do an exchange with me! I would gladly exchange some tatting for one of your darling illustrations...Oh, the possibilities!
Let me know if you are intersted! It's just a matter of calculating the time put into each project in order to make it fair!

Wonderful fun my friend! Really dig the previous post as well.

I am amazing of the order and civility that occurs in Japan, especially when surrounded by the mayhem of the US during the holidays.
