One Little Word Blog Hop-April

Welcome to my blog! If you are following the hop you should have come from Stacey- if not and you want to check out the other stops start with Margie. Margie organizes the hop and does a lot of work to make it happen- thanks Margie!!

Last month I had a giveaway of a crocheted flower bookmark, and it went to Cassie_lu.  Cassie's favorite flower is a dogwood- creamy white with pink at the tips.  And this is how it came out:



This picture is actually way bigger than the actual flower it came out about 1.5" diameter.

I hope you like it Cassie! It's in the mail today. If you want one...keep reading...
At the end of February I didn't have enough grow pictures...but thanks to some great ideas (some from you) I ended up with 2 pages of pictures.

Here is the whole collection:



One of the things I have been wanting to grow is my business.  Sooo during March I applied for and was accepted onto 2 design teams and I am really excited!!  Check out some of my March posts for my first projects. 

As part of my emotional growth I signed up to take Write Down to your Nitty Gritty at BPC and  it has me working hard and digging deep. It is such a powerful tool.  I also did Stacy's iScrap class it was another amazing Growth Experience...I still haven't finished all of the journaling, but I'm working on it. 

And the challenge in my Log Your Memory Planner for this week was a good one too-10 things that make me smile (except I couldn't stop at 10). Part of my growth is stopping to appreciate things (It helps keep me from losing my temper).
Here's my page:


Coming into April I have a really busy month ahead...I am attending True Scrap,   I am teaching a page class at my Local Scrapbooking store, my one annual holiday (The Memorial of Christ's Death) is April 24th (And is also the anniversary of my husband's death 8 years ago) and if that wasn't enough- I signed up to increase my ministry to 30 hours during April (I can hardly wait)...Lets just hope we all stay as healthy as possible!

And for those of you who read that entire thing...I have another giveaway- once again I will pick a random commenter and send them a crocheted flower in their choice of color...I can't guarantee I can make your favorite flower...but if I can I will.  And in the spirit of growth-(decluttering my scrap studio is growth) I will throw in some random scrap stuff to grow your stash a little bit...Just leave me a comment with your favorite color & flower (and maybe some love) by April 10th, and you're eligible.  And if you don't win, but you still want one...here is a link to my ETSY shop (I only have a couple flowers on there right now, but special orders are always accepted.  If you order in April and use the Code on the sidebar you'll get free shipping (U.S. Only please)).
Your next stop is  Rebekah and in case you get lost or want to jump around here is the entire list:
