I am on my way to work but the first thing I will do when I get home is make a cuppa and sit in the quiet and watch an amazing artist at work. I have so many of Kathryn's mini album videos in my favourites as inspiration and she never fails to inspire me. Kathryn is THE most talented inspiration craftswoman/artist that I have ever seen and I wished I lived in the US to take classes from her personally. You have chosen a real mistress of creativity Graphic 45 team, so thankyou very very much for that. Kathyrn knows how to display Graphic 45 papers to their very very best in everything she does.
