Mirella said...

I don't even know how you're meant to choose favourites from amongst the amazingness that you create! It must be super hard! But looking back through stuff we made in the past months or even years is a great exercise, and I love doing it - be that to see the progress I've made, or simply to look for some inspiration when the mojo is missing :-)

Linnea S said...
