    i am new to the “Blog” world, just accidentally run into a blog and the rest has been history. my husband thinks everytime I am on the computer i am searching for coupons to clip…don’t tell him i am addicted to the blog world, my family thinks i don’t even know how to check emails…what they don’t know doesn’t hurt them….right? after all i am 47 years old a mother of a soon to be 16 year old daughter (27 days till 16, so i am reminded constantly) i have been babysitting out of my home for 15 years. i started so my daughter would learn how to share, i continued because, they are soooo much fun, and after my daughter no longer wanted to wear the bows i would make or the little dresses and other odds and ends, these kids have loved them. always looking for new fabric and would love to have “green” to share with the 4 little girls I now babysit, (ages 9mos to 3.75yrs. of age, its all about the halfs when you are little.)
    thanks for letting me share and we are keeping our fingers crossed for green! candie & girls
