I may even have a few tips. ;) I find that establishing a pattern in some way help when I use more graphic... Continue reading

I don't usually post things like this but the family that is hosting this is dear to me... which makes this cause more personal that it would be otherwise. So instead of just donating I wanted to also spread the word. If you would like an avenue to help out some of the people in Vanuatu here is a VERY TRUSTWORTHY way to go. This wonderful family has served two humanitarian/medical missions (He's a Dr.) in Vanuatu and were blessed... Continue reading
