Feature Friday

Hey hey! Welcome back to the first installment of the second half of Feature Friday! Make sense? If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that Feature Friday has been around for a while. I stepped away from it for a minute, but I miss it. And I miss highlighting readers. So it’s back! And it’s goooood.

Thankfully, she included some close-up shots so you can see the details. It’s just a fantastic job, and I’m SO thankful she shared it with us!

Alicia is building (done building?) a house, so maybe we can convince her to share more of it with us. Peer pressure at its finest, right? Please go visit and tell her how awesome she is! :)
