Got Milk - 8 x 10 collage available as a limited edition print

 I was delighted at how crisp this looks when printed up!  Perfect as a positive reminder for a toddler's bedroom who's reluctant to drink milk!!  I love those little round milk tabs - takes me back to the days when we had milk delivery and glass milk bottles.  Somehow milk tasted better out of a glass I sounding like Andy Rooney?

You've got a great sense of humor. I love all the quotes. Definitely the "Trudi with an i" would make a perfect business card. Great job!

WOW, have you been busy! All are fabulous...

Holy Hannah you've been busy Trudi! Love it all, and I agree "Trudi with an I" would make a super business card. Your daydream collage is stunning too.
