    Hi Susan,

    I didn’t realize that you had this wonderful blog in addition to your literacy blog. I just wanted to thank you for visiting, commenting and entering my giveaways. You are a busy woman with an impressive background and I am honored that you take the time to visit me so often. I look forward to exploring this blog more. 🙂

    Interesting! You and I have something in common. My button is the same as your title background! It’s cool, though, they are different enough to not be a problem, at least to me! I love your blog!

      LOL. I used free art when i started back in 2009, now I don’t want to change since it’s so recognizable! Hope you entered a few giveaways while you were here! Susan
