As featured by; @brwnpaperbag . When I first launched my account Sara was one of the first to feature my embroidered gardens & terrariums. I remember feeling overjoyed by this, now I feel like my work has come full circle and although it may have changed that same feeling of being overjoyed hasn’t. So thank you Sara.
