Female

I want to thank all of y'all who have left such wonderful comments.  I love following you and seeing such wonderful posts.   You make my heart smile!!!!
Time for another challenge at The Craft Barn.  This time it is the letter Fe through Fr.
I have chosen the word FEMALE - how appropriate since I am a female!!!!!


I am having so much fun with this challenge and will have a wonderful gift for my daughter  - she loves this and I know she will treasure it always and pass it on to one of my granddaughters!

One of my favorite things to do is visit art museums and since we live so far back in the mountains, I do not get the chance as often as I would like. But I have to tell you, visiting all of your blogs has given me more pleasure than you will ever know.  You guys are so talented -- I do love you!!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments!!
Sandy

Gosh... I don't know how to say what I want to write in English: it goes this way: I love your page Sandy, it reminds me of an "hommage à la gent féminine" could a tribute to our fellow women, translate my thoughts without the "french poetry?" LOL. I love your vivid imagination at each of those posts, I salute the time you devote to each... I have been MIA lately! but I love to visit you! Hugs. and avec a lovely day.
