  1. Wow, Marilyn.. your texture work on Kim’s photo presents some pretty amazing results. I too am a part of her SkinnyMini Class and noted you were also from Minnesota, so wanted to just stop by and take a peak at your site.
    I too am from Minnesota. Hope to learn some of the techniques that you seem to already have accomplished in the upcoming weeks ahead. I just got my PSE10 for Christmas, so am a newbie.
