I realize this article isn't what you all usually get from me.  It's not complete, but it's what I worked on before I found out Cubits is shutting down.  No sense wasting the work that was done.

Before Cubits shuts down, I want to let you folks know that I will continue posting photos and videos for this creation, and any others we do, on my phanfare site.  This site is where I host all of my photos and videos, both the sculptures, the family, and the hunting.  Bookmark that site and check back often so you'll be able to keep up with us.

 

God Bless you all and thank you for sharing the creation of this beautiful Coleus Mama.

 

Janet and Connie
