  1. Oh this is going to be a good one to see on reveal day! A good choice Judy, to get me thinking.

  2. mmm, this one could mean anything and I'm sure it will be different for every one of us

  3. Thanks Judy, this will be another challenge with lots of possibilities!!

  4. oh my! Good one Judy! I'll be scratching my head over this one for a while. Now, off to strike a balance between sleep and working some more!

  5. Good one Judy! I have been struggling with finding my own balance (my schedule is over-weighted for the little time I have)so perhaps I'll find some insights as I work on this. :)

  6. Oh, I really like this one! All kinds of different directions to go.
