Wow, so impressed you managed 100! I struggled to do 25 way back when :) Very interesting stuff, and there are quite a few that I could say about myself too!

I read it all, your crafts are amazing.

There is no one way to be a perfect mother,
but a million ways to be a great one.

Kitty Ballistic said...

I am also impressed that you made 100, and quite a lot of your 'things' are my 'things' too.

You have inspired me to have a go at this as well. Check out my blog in the next few days (unless the procrastination gets to me).

I read it all and I'm impressed! I think you are amazingly talented. I love your paintings and crafts. Not that what I think counts but I really think you should write the stories down. I'd love to read them. I'm intrigued by your poison apple tree.
