Since you are the first stop on the Blog Hop - thought you may be the organizer. If so, just wanted to let you know that it was really fun. :) I'm brand-new to blogging, and will consider joining future Hops.

I went to all of the sites and left quite a few comments. The only disappointment was that there were several gals who had not updated their blog for the Hop.

Sarah said...

Wow I am really bummed I missed being a part of this...It is a great idea! Love your artwork.

Erin, your cards are great! How can you join the Blog Hop? Also, I notice that you don't have a place to subscribe or follow your blog.

Terrie in AZ said...

Thanks so much for organizing this Hop! I had a blast...It was a crazy, crazy week and I found myself working late on my project, and need some lessons on "scheduling" posts. (I couldn't figure it out) Hope your MIL is recovering well...
