Thank you so much, that is kind of you to say. I do try to sell from my blog, or I couldnt justify keeping it, but I also use it as kind of a diary to leave behind someday for my grand kids. I hope that when they are adults, they will go back and read it and know how much they are loved. I do hop around on subject matter, but that is just because I write about what Im up to that week, and I tend to hop around in real life too!

Beth Leintz made this one when I was down and gave it to me to lighten my thoughts. Its been nice to write and draw in, or just to sit and make pretty pages when I need a little something to do.

Isnt that funny, how they all pile in? It was really cute when 9 puppies and their mom all cuddled up in the bowl.

Peat pots sure worked good for me, and are a dozen for $1.50! Of course, not really sturdy enough for a kid.
