This is my first shophop on line. I have done them in my area and had fun but this will be better cause I can do it in my jammies. I will also get to visit blogs that I wouldn't get to on my own.


This is so exciting to be in a blog hop! I have learned so much and found so many great projects since I started blogging that I will never catch up. But thats alright because I won't get board that way! Thanks for the blog hop!!!!!
