  3. Stopping by for the first time. I recently joined the Bloggerette Sorority and wanted to meet some of the 'sisters'.

    My blog door is always open for new friends. Drop by, help yourself to some tea and cookies and meet my 6 dogs.

    God bless.

  5. I am a papercrafter, but looking at your work makes me want to crochet!

    I stopped by to introduce myself... My name is Sherry and I have recently joined the Bloggerette Sorority. I am a newbie to the blogging world, (3 wks!) so I missed the rush. I am however looking forward to joining in on all the fun in the future! I would be honored if you came by my blog at http://scrappingwithsherry1.blogspot.com/ Hope to see you there!
