Dear Geninne
I received your new book "Making an Impression" today from Amazon.ca. It reminded me the time I spent at Bookoo in Toronto learning from you how to carve stamps. Thank you for sharing your creativity

I love it. He is a bright and cheery little fellow. Have I mentioned (I know I have but it bears repeating) that when I look at your art I always feel like picking up colored pencils or paints or something and being creative?

A copy of your book arrived at my doorstep today and I love it! It's so beautiful like your blog. I love all the ideas and inspiration and I can't wait to try out carving again. (The last time I carved was a couple months ago so this is the little kickstart I needed:)

This is very spooky, I spent today working on a lino print of a warbler! Aren't they the cutest little birds?! Your watercolour is beautiful :-)

I lost your website when I moved and recently found you again. I love birds and have been thinking of naming our home "Bird Song". Can I tell you how much I love this black and white bird!!!! She is so lovely against the tan and red background. I did a journal in just those 4 colors and I think it is one of my best efforts. Can't wait to see what you do next. Thank you for sharing!!

To be honest: I prefer the photographed version because I actually love the typical manner the bird's tilting his head in kind of a questioning way. I miss that in your pic (though it's good as always).

Best regards,

Annie
