What I vowed to do for Gitter Done this week
was bury these babies into some banana bread.
Do you know how many loaves of bread I'd have to make?
I did manage one loaf. I just took it out of the oven.
My sock drawer is still a colorful mess.
I promise, Marianne, that when I get back from vacation I will organize that drawer and make you proud.
Gals, have you seen Marianne's pantry cupboard?
Those door hanger things made me smile so big. I even broke a sweat. That's what happens when I get really happy!

(there was a little blog glitch somewhere and the post was lost. Donna retrieved it for ME. That's how I got to finish my first EVER slip cover and pillow with a zipper)
I owe so much to these ladies. And to you all.

Cuz, while I'm just a little ole ME who does some simple stuff and has a blast, the support I receive from you CREATIVE COSMIC WOMEN pushes all the right buttons on my artist barometer...

I'm waiting on getting a button from one of my mentors.
