Timelapse Art with Funny Vegan Chicken Song

This is my second American Flag collage.  Perhaps I’m starting a series?  The first one is titled, "Freedom Flag".  For this collage, I'm calling it "First Ladies Flag" and it features inspirational quotes from various First Ladies. The quotes I looked for are mostly for women about living up to their potential. I tried to find things that I would want my niece to be inspired by. You will find quotes from Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Lady...
