One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

We are Spring Vacation week with the kiddos and of course it is raining here in Oregon!
I haven't had much time to play in my craft room, but I am going to remedy that very soon!
Today I am showing a friend how to knit, and she is making lunch for us!
I am sure I will be back in here in the afternoon!
