  1. Another winner! This is such a wonderful series, Wilma.
    And thank you for a fantastic workshop last month – I still can’t believe I made the collages πŸ™‚
    But it’s impossible to not make something beautiful with your skills to guide me and the incredible ephemera you made available.
    I love seeing your post on Sundays. Thank you!

  2. I love this one. Some years ago, my youngest brother came to be associated with octopuses and that led my siblings and I to seek out any and all octopus items and take photos of them and tag them as our brother online. As a result, I have found myself drawn to octopus things.
