  1. Is that me!!! Can’t be – It is!!! Thanks so much, you are too kind!!! I totally love A Year in the Making… a nice gift for hubs would just be a diary of our lives, one snippet a day in a moleskin… even for a month, a week… just so he knows we are thinking of him when he is out there in the world.

  4. I was so surprised to see my Year in the Making project in your post. (I heart your site) Then when I saw 591 hits on my post today I almost fell off my chair! Usually it 5 (mostly family). Thanks for the shout-out, I’m glad everyone liked it the project. It’s takes a little time but the end result is so worth it.
