Hi Joanne!

I have just spent a couple of hours reading your fantastic blog! Love seeing all you projects, your recipes and reading your inspirational words about your faith and God. You are such an inspiration!

Love from your newest reader!

Love the vintage girl scout stuff. Your party will be wonderful and a fun time will be had by all!


Have fun tomorrow! I'm sad I can't be there, but I'm looking forward to seeing you on Thursday!

Holly Smith

I will be there, friend! Ready with a smile and hug :)

Love you much!!

Holly B.

What fun vintage treasures! Enjoy your open house--wish I could come!


Food? What food?


We shall knit/crochet/talk/have fun together one day! =D

The scarf I am knitting is coming to a close soon. It will officially come to a close when I figure out the bind-off. Hmm...that should take some time...

Hi Joanne,
I have that very same needle packet! Love the art work!
I talked to Stephanie yesterday and she is going to be coming to your "Open House"! Give her a hug from me!
Wish I could be there!


I will pray that all you girls have a fun time knitting and bonding with God....How I wish I could be there...!! I will wait for the pics.
Have a wonderful time.

So sorry I can't just drop in! Have a great time...

Hey there! Hope you're open house went well! Would you mind sharing your Easter traditions? I'm struggling to stress the importance of Easter with my kids. Christmas provides lots of opportunities, but Easter isn't so easy.

love, jen

What a blessing to have you as a friend. I am thankful...and full of joy. It was so great to get to spend two days with you, friend...wish you were still down the street :)

Going up to my bike now--praying for you and asking God to cause your feet to be planted in such a spacious place and fill your heart with the leaping and skipping kind of joy!!

Thank you for being my friend and causing my face to shine :)


what a great book! my girls are in girl scouts and we just did some sewing.
