11 Apr Giveaway Winners!

My husband kindly agreed to draw the names of the Giveaway Winners and then showed up in a tux.

      Hi Beth! In retrospect I believe I was afraid of failure and didn’t want to reveal my blog to my family or anyone else I knew until I had something to show.
      It has really been fun and I’m so glad to know you are still reading! 🙂 🙂
