Thank you so much Becky, here’s to sharing our creative birthrights! (Loving seeing and hearing you!)
I remembered you telling me about this moment when you art teacher discouraged you, but it came across so poignantly in this video. i’m glad Twinkle and Sparkle have shown you you do have creativity, just as they do, and demonstrate in their own video!
