Paint a Colorful Smile

Hearing from fellow stitchers who use my free tutorials makes me happy! Here you see artwork by Christina. She used my Paint Brush tutorial to create wonderful, meaningful presents for friends, family, and acquaintances. She also prints out and adds this saying to the gift: Paint every day with a colorful smile- the greater your storm, the brighter your rainbow.
Thank you, Christina, for sharing your work with us!
