An amazing individual because she has achieved many of her dreams:
- To open/operate a store in which to sell art and where art is created

  1. Hi, Judy. I'm visiting from Ring 1. Great article on Hippie's Creations.:-) I have several favorites from this little shop, but two favs in particular are the cute blue crochet shoes for babies, and the crochet flower dishcloths. Interesting life as well as creative artist. --Karen
