Well, I have a suggested for some things plus this flower here that I'm partial too: [link]

#JustForYouStationary is all about making stationary for people to love! :cough: Hopefully dA might get the idea to pick it up for the store one day, but until then, no worries because you can get/create ideas for the group! :cough: LOL jk ;)
#deviant365 Is an awesome club based on one task each day that we'll assign for the deviant to find, solve, make, whatever we come up with. I'm really glad to be apart of this group. :heart:
#DelveMag Now, there's a reason as to why I'm actually posting this one. This is a wonderful group of mine, that is currently on hiatus. I don't want it to be on hiatus for much longer, so what we need is a new people to join the really small group we have so far so we can get this baby up off it's slumber and back to business. That's what I'm hoping for anyway.. :pray: :heart:

So, there you have it! Maybe I will find more pretty flowers, because I love flowers! :D :heart: :love:
