I struggle to put into words how Moment Catchers has already impacted my life — because how can one measure the serendipity of human connection?

Joining Moment Catchers has opened up a love that I had forgotten and put aside for many years. There is wonderful support within this group of new friends worldwide; this is a magical environment and Candace is very generous with her invaluable knowledge, watercolor advice, and videos.”
