I have started a little fundraising project for #dAWishingWell and it would be really great if it could be included in the next issue. All details can be found in this journal: Icons for a Good Cause.
Thank you. :)

Thank you so much for including one of my articles! :hug:

For the next Whoa theme I would like to suggest a work: [link] It is not water in itself but depicts ~Pippanaffie's lovely original character, the Water Prince, so I figured it would fit nicely. :)
