I am also happy because when I look at these pictures it shows that I have lost 20 pounds!! I'm going to get into the studio tomorrow and make something, I 'm feeling inspired right now. Hopefully I'll have something to share with you!! TTFN everyone. And, I'm still waiting to hear from the winners of the drawing!!
