Thoughts/Ideas

The hardest part for me was picking a movie or TV show that I wanted to create a poster of and as a result I choose the Beauty and the Beast. I absolutely […]

Radio Tweet Along 4

I hate to say it but the Lime Town Mysteries has finally ended and to be honest I’m left with more questions unanswered than I thought I would at the start of the podcasts. I absolutely enjoyed the dark aspect of the story especially with danger in every turn Lia Haddock made. The background sounds […]
