I am very excited and nervous Meri. I have never made anything like we are making. I think I will need lots of direction. Seeing all your wonderful things is great.

Hi Meri, I cant believe all you have collected for the fun at the bloggers luncheon! It looks awesome. I am looking forward to seeing you again.

I am so sorry to hear you are struggling with some pain and sadness in your family :( I will keep you in my thoughts. (()) gail

I'm putting up a nice, simple little link about this on my blog tomorrow.


Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Pardon me for one sec while I go empty my drool pan.
Girl that I get to attend this beyond sweet event has me pinching myself.

I will probably make a little sweet something for all the attendees so I'd love a final head count once we get close.

If I can get my act together I will make us some rose flavored French macarons. Yum!
