Oh my... I almost fell out of my chair when I seen my name on this list of fabulous designers, congrats to all. I had to pinch myself several times thinking it was an April Fools prank which by the way I am all in for. April Fools Day at our house is a holiday, lol. It is full of pranks and birthday celebrations. Thank you again for making my "holiday" even more special.

félicitations à tous et bonne chance !!
