    I saw this on Yahoo. What incredible talent for an 18 year old. She'll go far with it.

    What a beautiful idea. She does nice work. I bet she can now start her own dress painting business.

    She is very talented. Great reuse. I like it better than some other new dresses I have seen.

    This young lady is going far in the fashion world. Items like this command large prices for a piece this beautiful. Doubt we've seen the last of her creations. She could upset the walkways, no humdrum same old, same old from her!

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I saw the gown on face book and thought it was amazing that you made it. Now, the question is when are you starting your shop??? You do excellent work, keep on going. I know the area, so just keep going and I will be there someday in your shop. Pa to NY.
