    Well Maddie, I have been on here for a few months now. Everyone on here is so nice and very helpful. Love all the feedback and great ideas that are given. I have to say I have learned alot by reading what people write, looking and learning from there designs. The Fresh Pick area is also really fun and great practice at mixing colors, shapes and textures.
