  1. Oh Marla, I know how excited you were about this. And now I see why...it is just so beautiful :-) The blue you used is very comforting and peaceful. And the Blue Heart is just so deep and lovely. I feel like I am whispering as I type this, like I don't want to disturb the calm.
    Making this was a beautiful tribute to your daughter. Thank you.

    1. Thanks Therese it means a lot that you like it. I am really happy with the way that it turned out. My boss had me make his wife one after seeing it in Auburn Colors lol. So not only was it my first designs but my first commissioned sale as well.
