I received a copy and I am delighted to have it. I wonder if everyone who inspired her got a copy?

Hi Susan, I opened this tonight (I am SO far behind on blogging) & was absolutely blown away. (Can't find other words.) The care & thought that went into looking at the colors the artists use alone is remarkable.

Has anyone else blogged or received this?

You're in there, Susan, toward the end.
