      Hi Pastiche, thanks for stopping by my Little Mermaid lens. You mentioned that you had just colored a mermaid for your lens. I would love to see it but searching high and low, this is the closest I got but the mermaid here is by someone else.

      Have you ever had this problem? You visit a lens and find so many good resources that you wander off to look at a few and have trouble getting back? I love graphics and fairies so spent a lot of time looking around. Fortunately a kind fairy pointed the way back so I could leave this note, favorite it, and sprinkle 5* for you.
