  1. You have made 2020 bearable for me and others and I look forward to 2021! I identify so much with your style and am inspired by you. You work so hard for your “ducklings” and I just want you to know how much you are appreciated. I hope to meet you in person someday but in the meantime, Happy New Year, my friend!

    1. Thank you so much Lynn. What a lovely message. I appreciate it more than you can know. Without this community, 2020 would have been unbearable. I am SO looking forward to 2021 and am hoping next year at this time we are all celebrating together! ❤️

  2. Ariane, I know what a great artist you are, from the NY Mods, but I never realized the scope of your talents. I enjoyed your “Year in Photos”, as well as many of your posts! Congratulations on your many accomplishments…I look forward to when we can again meet in person in NYC and at retreats.
