Oh, that's FABULOUS! Congratulations to all you ladies!!! I love ALL of these. But the red one made me laugh. I can just picture you staring at your groceries, willing them to do something. Wouldn't it be great if they did!

I so wish I could be there tomorrow evening!

I don't envy the person who has to choose - that would be very hard! Love them all, and I couldn't agree more with the sentiments!

Haha, I broke down and spent three dollars on junk food at the snack machine the other day, just because I had the money (that's what i get for bringing cash to school). Anyhow, I really love these all, especially the organic, plant-like feel to the text in the top page. Also, congrats on the exhibit!
